Nokia's Lumia 920, 820 to Feature Wireless Charging

Nokia and Microsoft have a Windows Phone event scheduled for tomorrow and the Finnish company is expected to introduce its Windows Phone 8 offerings to the world. However, it seems a little leak has provided us with some information on Nokia's upcoming handsets prior to tomorrow's unveiling.

The Verge cites several sources that say the Nokia Lumia 920 will be the company's new flagship Windows Phone. Not only that, but the device will apparently come with wireless charging as well as a 4.5-inch display, a 1.5GHz processor (dual core), 1GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. The phone will also feature one of Nokia's PureView camera, though it will be an 8-megapixel sensor, as opposed to the 41-megapixel sensor we saw in the 808 PureView earlier this year. Not to get left behind, the Lumia 820 also includes wireless charging. The image below shows the wireless charging aspect of the Lumia 920.

As far as aesthetics are concerned, the design is in keeping with that signature Lumia look that we know so well. What we don't know is how much these phones will cost and what networks they'll be available through when they launch. You'll have to sit tight and wait until tomorrow for that information.

    So just 8 MP? :-/

    I was expecting something along 13 MP. Specially since it's using the brand PureView. After releasing a sweet 41 MP sensor, a 8 MP feels.... lacking.

    Anything else sounds quite good.

    It's a phone. Why would you pack a 13MP sensor with crappy phone camera optics? At these resolutions (pretty much 6MP+ it all comes down to the optics. Everything else is just marketing gimmicks.

    Hmmm... seems to be that they wanted to keep their first phones guite thin. I supose we will see better cameras in thicker phones... When you examine 808 you can easily see that good optics takes a lot of space.

Many thought the 41Mpx was ridiculous, Nokia proved them wrong, who knows what they'll do this time.
