Nokia’s Lumia 920 smartphone, launched with Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating system loaded on top, is one of the most appealing handsets on shelves this quarter, but more is expected from Nokia in the coming months.With Android devices already rocking quad-core processors and full HD screens, it’s no wonder that Windows Phone and Nokia enthusiasts are already dreaming of the day when the company will bring to shelves similar devices as well.
The Nokia Lumia 990 concept phone that can be seen in the images attached to this article is one handset that might very well become reality at some point in the future.
For the time being, however, it is nothing more than the product of a designer’s imagination, but its specs and features are not too far from what we can see on shelves today.
The Lumia 990 concept sports a 5-inch PureMotion touchscreen display that can deliver a full HD resolution and which is protected by the next-generation Gorilla Glass.
The smartphone also features a 1.5GHz quad-core processor inside, though it could also sport a 1.8GHz eight-core CPU, the designer says. 2GB of RAM will ensure that it can offer enough performance capabilities to its users.
The concept was imagined with 32GB / 64GB of internal memory, complemented by a microSD memory card slot to allow for additional storage space to be added.
On the back, Nokia Lumia 990 would sport a 16-megapixel PureView photo snapper with dual-LED flash, and full HD video recording capabilities. There’s also a 3.2MP camera on the front to enable video chatting.
Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth, LTE, and all the usual sensors in high-end devices will also be included. Furthermore, the device sports a 3,600 mAh battery inside, for increased usage times. The next Windows Phone 8 release will run on it.
The concept phone comes from Edgar Mkrtchyan (via MyNokiaBlog), and can impress courtesy of its outer design as well, that’s for sure. However, there’s no certainty that Nokia will indeed build a device with similar specs anytime soon, so don’t get your hopes too high.
