Another day, another leak — this time, a set of new images that purportedly depict Nokia’s next set of Lumia smartphones have begun to make the rounds. Coming from a random Twitter source (planned corporate or PR leaker?), these images are reportedly of the 4.3-inch Nokia 820 and the 920 PureView, the latter of which apparently packs Nokia’s super imaging system. These phones were supposed to be revealed for the first time at a September 6th event. Whoops.
Nokia knows how to make a good-looking phone. Starting with the N8 in 2010, Nokia has since outed several innovative and fresh smartphones. The latest seem more of the same. That’s a good thing. Just like their predecessors, these are fantastic looking phones. Well done, Nokia.
The 820 reportedly uses a 4.3-inch display and is likely the mid-range phone for the Lumia line. Not much else is known about the phone although the leaked pics show it sports Carl Zeiss optics. No word on pricing or availability for either of these models.
The 4.5-inch 920 will no doubt be the Lumia’s flagship and likely equipped with everything Nokia can throw into a phone. This phone reportedly packs Nokia’s breakthrough PureView technology, which utilizes a crazy amount of megapixels in a practical way. After spending sometime with the bulky PureView 808, we’re still a bit curious how Nokia managed to cram the necessary bits into the slender frame. But man, we hope these leaks are legit.
Windows Phone 8 is shaping up to be a fantastic mobile platform and these devices with their good looks and superstar optics could be just what it needs to properly combat Android and iOS.
