Well, this clearly isn’t the first time we’ve gotten a good look at the new king of the kill for Windows Phone devices, the Nokia Lumia 920, but this is the first time we’ve gotten to know almost everything about it – Nokia today officially unveiled the Nokia Lumia 920, the successor to what is highly regarded the best Windows Phone on the market, the Nokia Lumia 900.
The Lumia 920 maintains most of the famous Lumia 900 design, but makes a few sleek additions. The body is now coated in a beautiful and bright glossy coat, and the phone has thus far been announced in yellow, red, white, grey, and black color variants. As for specs, we’re looking at a 4.5″ “Pure Motion HD+” display with a 768 x 1280 resolution, a 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor (a bit surprising they didn’t spring for the quad core here), a 2,000 mAh battery, 32GB of internal storage Windows Phone 8, and the now infamous PureView camera, which is the same tech that provided the Nokia PureView 808 with that 41 MP camera. Camera enthusiasts might be a bit disappointed to learn, though, that the Lumia 920 features a much more reasonable 8.7 MP sensor – which is still said to be very, very good. 1080p video recording capabilities also come standard. Other changes seem to include a slightly smaller bezel around the screen, and the new Windows flag logo replaces the old one, and dual LED flashes.
Another amazingly cool feature is that the Nokia Lumia 920′s display is actually touch sensitive even while wearing gloves, something I have yet to see on any other consumer phone. So if you’re the type that either lives in a cold climate or simply wears gloves for the sake of wearing gloves, you should be pretty excited right now. Nokia’s calling the tech “Super Sensitive Touch” and actually showed off how usable the phone was while wearing oven mitts on screen.
