While it may take months for Nokia to prove that its first Windows Phone 8-carrying new smartphones will finally bring a boost to its bid for a turnaround, many are positive the Finnish company will earn a spot in the lucrative smartphone market dominated by Apple and Samsung.
 
Nokia yesterday officially revealed its flagship Lumia 920 and the mid-range Lumia 820 devices that boast of the many perks attached to using Windows Phone operating system. Add this to the Finnish maker’s exceptional industrial design and advanced functionalities that promise to give the best user experience. 
 
Details of a raft of other new state-of-the-art features such as PureView, City Lens, speed and wireless charging became the focus of the event in New York when the new handsets were introduced and Lumia 920 was proclaimed “the world’s most innovative phone.”
 
Lumia 920 comes packed with a larger, curved 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ display, dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 2000-mAh battery, NFC-enabled, built-in wireless charging, and the 8-megapixel rear PureView camera that is capable of 1080p video.
 
The display of Lumia 920 is made of WXGA (1280 by 768 resolution), which according to Nokia gives 25 percent brighter than the next best panel of what is currently in use today. This 920’s screen is also designed to be sensitive to touch that even those wearing gloves or mitts can use without much trouble.  
 
An innovative imaging system, PureView promises to capture better images and record quality videos at par with the SLR cameras. The Lumia 920 is even coupled with a “floating lens technology” or an image stabilization system that reacts to a user’s movements so the final image is not ruined by jitters or judder. 
 
This PureView imaging component of the new Lumia 920 built-in camera is a good companion for low light photography. According to Nokia, users can now take pictures and videos in dimly-lit spaces and still get images that are five clearer and brighter than other smartphones even without turning the flash on. 
 
With the Lumia 920, Nokia wants to make a splash in the area of augmented reality via a feature called City lens, an addition to the location suite for an enhanced experience of Nokia Maps.  To use City Lens, users will only need to point the 920’s camera at a city street and it will overlay information about the nearest restaurants, hotels or shops on the surface of buildings. From there, users can move around between maps and the augmented reality side of the functionality useful in checking direction and surroundings.
 
The Lumia 820, Nokia’s mid-range entry, has a 4.3-inch display that gives 800 by 480 screen resolution, using a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, and has a gigabyte of RAM. Integrated with an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash and can take videos in 1080p. This model is NFC-enabled and a Wi-Fi connectivity.
 
External finish of the Lumia 920 and 820 are made of polycarbonate matte and gloss and both comes in a slew of primary colours yellow, red, grey, white, and black. Lumia 820 has two other colours, cyan and purple. In the unibody look and feel department, the Lumia 820 will sport an exchangeable shell design that makes it possible for users to select from the color range and add wireless charging.  
 
No announcement has been made yet on pricing and in what territories the handsets will be made available. Both smartphones will be made available in pentaband LTE and HSPA+ variants.While it may take months for Nokia to prove that its first Windows Phone 8-carrying new smartphones will finally bring a boost to its bid for a turnaround, many are positive the Finnish company will finally land a spot in the lucrative smartphone arena dominated by Apple and Samsung.
