Nokia will be unveiling their new Lumia devices on Wednesday – they’ll reportedly be the 920 and 820. New details have emerged to the new flagship Lumia 920 “Phi.” The Verge is reporting that in addition to the 4.5-inch display the Windows Phone 8 device will come with a magnetic strip on its backside to support wireless charging. That, along with higher end specs, will help Nokia accomplish their recent teaser quote promising that “things are about to change.” The camera was rumoured to be a PureView like the 41MP beast found in the 808 PureView, but the 920 is expected to be branded as PureView and come with a 8MP shooter that features “advancements in image stabilization and camera software.” The 920 will also have a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM.

    It’s still a Windows Phone… won’t sell much… too bad!

    • yosme

      is this bb10?

  • mrlostman

    So basically, it’s not pureview…
    All in all, though, looks like a winner and can’t wait to see how this wireless charging works.

    After watching LTE fiasco on buds Nokia 900 here in Canada, I doubt they’ll get repeat sales from former Nokia owners.

    Nice piece of kit, will it all work and not be forgotten is question.

    Looks like it’s gonna be an awesome phone… I have a windows phone now and it’s great in my opinion. It’ll be great if the phone can work on wind mobile network >_<. I love the Nokia phone designs buts sadly the ones that goes to windate not that great.

    Looks great, BUT 8MP should never ever ever be called Pureview! Not so much a deal breaker as a piss off.

  • DRI

    I am waiting for the Windows Phone 8 to emerge. I will be offering up an Ice Cream Sandwich for sale!

    Like most cameras I think the pureview tech is based on a lot more than just the mp rating so I think 8mp will work just fine.

    • kris

      no pure IS based on MP. how pureview works is by upsampling pictures. high mp are needed for this. 8mp is not enough to upsample or use loseless zoom.

    It’s lacking one thing: Android 😀

    • Mike

      You mean the software that got Samsung $1 billion fine? No thanks. Nokia is doing fine with Windows.

    • DRI

      I think you mean Bland-droid.

    • Keith

      It’s lacking a few other things as well such as uninstallable carrier bloatware, spying programs and trogans, etc.

    Looks great, 8mp pureview.. does not.

  • Stupid

    I would sooner switch from Android to BB10.
    No joke.

    Pure View is intriguing though this isn’t real pure view.
