Nokia Lumia 820, 920 leak out: PureView coming to Windows Phone

Nokia Lumia 820, 920 leak out: PureView coming to Windows Phone
The new Nokia Lumias have leaked out and they bring great news for Windows Phone fans - Nokia is bringing its PureView imaging technology to Windows Phone 8 with a monster 4.5-inch Nokia Lumia 920, designed in Nokia’s best N9/Lumia 800 traditions and with great new colors, at least if this here leak proves true.

Along with it comes a lesser specced and non-PureView 4.3-inch Nokia Lumia 820 with equally colorful jazzy looks and probably a more affordable price.

Both the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Lumia 820 seem to focus on the camera with Carl Zeiss lenses on both gadgets. 

We don't know the actual resolution of the allegedy Lumia 920 PureView camera, but so far we've heard speculation that a PureView Windows Phone Lumia could sport a 21-megapixel sensor. This would allow the PureView oversampling technology to combine four pixels into one super pixel when you shoot at 5 megapixels, which in turn would mean less noise and better performance in low light conditions, as well as some non-degrading zoom capability (not just plain digital zoom). Still, in all likelihood this won't be exactly like the monster 41-megapixel sensor on the Nokia 808 PureView Symbian device, but somewhat less capable. On the bright side of things - you don't have to deal with a huge bulge on the back of the device, and the upcoming Lumia 920 definitely looks very, very sleek, much better than the bulky 808 PureView.

We love the colors on both the Lumia 920 and 820. That amazing yellow and vivid, almost crimson red right in the middle seem to set the new trend for Nokia Windows Phones.

As good and veritable as it sounds, this is still a leak so the final handsets Nokia unveils on September 5th might differ from what we see here. Still, to us it seems that there is all likelihood that those images are legit. If so, there will be a lot to get hyped up about in less than a week.

How do you like what you see? Could that be your future phone right here?

Same old design and very uninspiring, but PureView may save Nokia.

Like or not like something, that's only personal opinion. But the fact is not many bought L900 despite a huge ads. campaign.

I don't like Apple but I must say only iPhone 4S has old design but Nokia has recycled N9 design again and again. I wish Nokia best of luck because they will need it.

I think you are a blind fanboy, not me LOL.

I like the lively colours of Nokia but prefers the 4.8in screen of the ATIV S. But who knows, Nokia might surprise us next month.

for me, even i got hands of a giant, i still prefer texting on a 3.5 to 4.3 screen coz its standard and i dont have problem with it!!!

its just weird texting and calling on a huge 4.8 like the s3!!! even i got huge hands!!!

publicly or privately..people might think that you're crazy that you're making calls on your mini tablet.. i hate calling using earphones...

well consumers mind in mobile world are limited so when they think of android, its samsung... even there's a lot of other manufacturers out there!

and now when they think about windows phone, its nokia lumia!!! in my place, WP isnt known... and nokia made it well known..so the WP glory will definitely go to nokia...

i dont know if the glory of android will still go to samsung...

Fortunately Sept. 5th is only 6 days away. I wonder which new phone I am going to be getting this time around? RAZR HD? Lumia 920? Or, something else? Lots of interesting new toys are coming to market. It is unfortunate for RIM that they won't be participating in this year's Xmas sales.

Designwise the Samsung Ativ S excites me much more, perhaps I'm growing tired of my Lumia, but nice that PureBiew is coming to the platform.

if the 920 has pureview most be like 16mp or less cuz the lens are too small (what we can see), hope will be the second best camera phone out there

Lens =/= megapixel count. That is determined by the sensor size. Optics (lenses, filters, etc) allow for other input and various results depending on what is used.

Some awfully large black bezel going on below the screen there on the handsets. If the screen is in fact 4.5 then with that bezel the device will be the size of a 5 inch screen.

they should have went with all-touch, using gestures and swipes from Windows 8 and Meego. Windows' buttons take too much space. :(

That is true, Andro. While most would say the 900 was a better device than HTC's Titan and T2, the phones were nearly the same size and weight. The Titan's made much better use of the space for actual screen and there was a ton of wasted acreage in the 900.

I agree. From afar it looked beautiful. Clicked the link and saw the humongous bottom bezel. When will companies learn that "Sausage Fingers" is not the dominant, potential group of buyers? :(

Great that Nokia are releasing PureView now but I still feel Windows Phone is the weak link in this relationship. Now had Nokia introduced this camera technology on Android I'm pretty confident Nokia sales would be flying! Unfortunately I'm not sure this is enough to save Nokia.

Agreed,I've seen the Nokia 610 drop to 120 bucks no contract and still see staff really really strugling to sell even one despite the low level market price. Windows and live tiles are the major turn off. If Nokia went android with pure view they could have androids best seller

31. redmd (Posts: 786; Member since: 26 Oct 2011)


I completely agree with you. The live tiles itself is the major turn off. Is it an acquired taste? We'll just see from the consumer response when these devices hit shelves.

36. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


I like them. If you do it right, they look nice. Otherwise it can start to look a little cluttered. Its like Moto Blur used to be.. you had to turn half of it off to be able to make sense of it, lol

Once they allow us to customize the tiles individually I think it will be a lot better.

just for android 4.1 but the others are sh&t, i have a galaxy s2 and recently bought a samsung focus (yes, a samsung focus) for second phone and now i want to crash my galaxy s2. how a 1ghz can run a OS at almost the same speed than a dual core krait? naaaa android sucks

there is a big difference between any device running 4.0/4.1 and any device that is not. put the S2 on ICS/JB and then try to complain. Stop trolling.

32. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


yea, thats because you have no idea what your talking about

the american S2 does NOT use the dual core Krait S4. It uses the older Crapdragon S3 which is a junk chip. Exynos or bust.

52. snowgator (Posts: 3159; Member since: 19 Jan 2011)


That is kinda the point though, ain't it remixfa? Look, you have been very open minded to WP and I respect the dog-snot out of you for it, but most people do not buy device to root it and put different OS versions on it, and a ton of users never even upgrade when it does come from the carriers. They also do not examine what chip set is where (though I always take your word and King's word on chip performances). They want to turn a device on, set it up (or have it set up for them), and just know it will work. WP is trying to be the best in that regard. dr_fajardo12's experience shows there is potential for WP 8 if they can get people to give it a try.

well yea, sure..

but what does that have to do with him claiming his SGS2 has a S4 Krait in it? lol

And why not? I have an HD7 that I let my daughter use for her self, and its rooted with custom roms n stuff on it. :)

Your missing out on a lot if you dont do that kind of stuff!

i was wrong remixfa, does not haver a s4 krait, but it has a dual core - 1ghz RAM, so should be way faster than a single core - 512 RAM right?

Love the new colors! Hope the colors and PureView 21MP camera are real! Dislike the hump of the 808 so 21MP is fine by me! I'm a great fan of WIndows Phone so I'm excited over the Nokia, SS, and HTC leakages of WP8 devices!

Diamond Dave will always be the best Van Halen singer. :)

Samsungs normally sound better because they use really high end sound chips. The SGS1 and SGS3 both used the best in existence. The SGS2 changed it up a bit... so it wasnt quite as good.. which is why they went back.
