It packs a 12-megapixel rear photo snapper and quad-core CPU
Although Nokia already confirmed that it would bring the PureView technology to Lumia devices, the Finnish company has yet to unveil its first Windows Phone smartphone with improved camera capabilities.Rumors on upcoming Lumia smartphones with PureView cameras emerged several weeks ago, but nothing is really clear for the moment.
Still, Verizon Wireless has shown its appreciation for Nokia’s struggle to make the Windows Phone platform more accessible to the mass market and confirmed plans to bring its customers future Windows Phone 8 devices.
Verizon’s offering includes iOS and Android handsets, but the carrier is interested to add a third operating system to its portfolio, Windows Phone.
This comes in line with the latest rumors that pointed to a possible Lumia PureView release at Verizon in the following month.
However, until we have more information on Verizon’s roadmap for Q3/Q4 2012, we can only speculate on upcoming devices that customers expect to see getting launched in the States.
There’s an interesting concept of a Nokia Lumia smartphone with PureView technology, which might become real with several adjustments.
Dubbed Nokia Lumia 920, the concept is made by Jonas Dahnert and packs a quad-core processor and a stunning 4.3-inch AMOLED HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution capacitive touchscreen display.
The design strongly resembles Lumia 800 and 900, but the Lumia 920 seems to be a bit thinner. Its 12-megapixel rear photo snapper features PureView technology and is capable of recording full HD (1080p) videos.
On the inside, Lumia 920 embeds 2GB of RAM, which might be overkill, as well as 32 or 64GB of internal memory. Obviously, this one won’t come with microSD card slot for memory expansion.
Last but not least, the phone will run Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating system and it will drain energy from a high-capacity 2,000 mAh Li-Ion battery.
