Nokia Announces Bigger, Better Lumia 920 : Tech Secs and First Impressions

The giant Finnish telecomconglomerate Nokia, in order to redeem its hold on the smartphone market, has just announced its first ever Windows Phone 8 driven handset Nokia Lumia 920. The handset is going to offer the users what was missing in the previous handsets of the company, such as bigger and better display, a dual core processor, smarter camera, and stronger battery.  It is, perceived by many, as the last attempt by the company to come to the fore as a world class player in the smartphone arena. Let’s find out what exactly does the Nokia Lumia 920 has on offer.

State of Art Display

This time the Lumia has not just come to light with a bigger display but the screen is better too. The Lumia 910 had a 4.3 inch screen with a pretty average screen resolution of 480x320p but this time the Lumia has a 4.5 inch IPS screen with a pixel resolution as high as 1280x768. The screen is a PureMotion HD display, which sports a corning gorilla glass protection. Virtuoso.

First ever Dual Core Processor

Yeah, this device unlike other Windows driven device houses a dual core processor. The Nokia Lumia 920 has Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon chipset over which there is Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor, making its presence felt to everyone. The processor is well complimented by a 1GB RAM. Electrifying.


For those who have their interests vested in photography, the Nokia Lumia 920 has a "PureView" 8 MP camera which is said to offer better video and still images than rival smartphones. There is no need for me to remind the readers that this is the same technology used in the revolutionary Nokia 808 which boasts of a humongous 41MP camera. The 920 has a 1.3MP front camera for video chat and self portrait.

Data Connectivity

The 4G capable handset has GPRS, EDGE, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth with A2DP and EDR, USB 2.0, and NFC in the data connectivity.  The mentioned things are all that you want in a modern day smartphone. The Lumia 920 passes the test here too, with distinction, of course.

Other Features

The handset has a storage capacity of 32GB and, in addition, the user gets a 7GB of cloud storage. Excellent. In the battery segment the handset has a powerful 2000 mAh Li-Ion battery, which will let you stay connected for a longer period time. And for those who like their handsets to be vibrant in colors, Nokia has brought the handset in many glossy colors.
Let the Q4 of the year come and we will witness how true is all the hue and cry that has been created around the Nokia Lumia 920. Fingers crossed.
