Same Lumia 920 phone with few tweaking here and there! Its okay but not what we expected! Nokia Lumia EOS will be my cup of tea!

yikes, i'm hearing that the design and the switch to AMOLED are the only hardware changes going on here. that's not good and what's more with this one you'll have to buy an accessory to be able to use wireless charging. yeah...not good.

not nokia's fault. microsoft should have added support for 1080p displays, quad cores and more megapixels last year with wp8.

Of course the fault is of Nokia, they chose them.

true...true..what bugs me is that when they announced wp8, they said they added support for "multiple cores", not just dual cores. 720p i can live with, but slow processor? not so much.

No, they said the Kernel supports 64 cores, not the OS.

Why do you care how many cores the processor has or how many MP the camera has or What screen resolution, if the applications and the OS running fast, the camera has amazing quality and the screen is brilliant?

Look at the Galaxy S4 lag with the new processor

I love everything but the design, specifically those four black bands on the sides. Nokia should have placed them more elegantly, like with the iPhone.

Hahahaha Lmfao, only an updated camera, wow this is so amazing. No upgrade to Cpu, Gpu, no 1080p screen, nor 400ppi. All 2012 handsets cameras are great, but does any-one bother about camera now adays, it's all about specs, even Apple and every manufacturers do upgrade, but Nokia dosen't, pathetic. How so sad.

yeah, i know right !!! WAKE THE HELL UP!!
Microsoft isn't allowing for quad-core neither does it allow for 1080p screens, so how can they upgrade from the hardware side !
but unlike other companies they upgraded the best feature they have to be even better - their camera software - so i don't blame them for 2012 specs rather i appreciate the announcement of this device..it looks nice, premium materials *cough*rather than the same old crappy plastic*cough*, and a thin body.
Wasn't everybody complaining about how heavy and thick the lumia 920 was, here you go a thin, light body for you so you don't complain, yet you keep doing what you do best trolling !!
And about nokia not announcing the Lumia EOS, I'm actually glad they didn't cuz it is still the same limited WP8, i would rather have them announce it later this year after the new update bringing 1080p screen and quad-core processors (although WP8 doesn't need them)

WP8 doesn't need quad-core processors only, 1080p screens is a must*
just so you don't understand my last sentence in a wrong way :D

Wp9 will need quadcore cpus.

I'm trying to find some wisdom in your posts but I can not, this is not the next flagship frome Nokia, so why they need update the Cpu and Gpu!

Common sense, any electrical or mechanical products needs, requires an update for part reserve power and torque. Keep up with time, 2012 is gone. Anything, everything a progress is an utmost a pinnacle.

It feels better and good. Wouldn't you love that extra power, what-ever it is, when a new product is in line.

Looks like you're just an old-skool or a vintage person, as long as it works,it's fine for you.

The thing is, WP8 does not need nor does it even support the specs your saying it needs. It runs perfectly smooth on what hardware is in it as the OS is optimized very well, just like iOS. Specs dont mean everything, except to a specs monger/troll (not referring to your name). Software optimization has a lot to do with how smoothly and efficiently the phone will run, look at the S4, samsung add all their bloat and gimmicks and it lags, on some of the best specs out right now. Some of the "features" are just a double of what android already does, samsung just slapped their name on it, i.e. S-beam. Ppl need to stop looking at specs only.

Custom made Exynos chip A6. By Samsung, which preforms 20% better vs a crapdragon standard commercial typical chips.

Apple uses the best in Cpu and Gpu, pvrsgx543 vs Adreno, please™

Allow me to disagree!
Look at the Galaxy S4 lag badly with the new Exynos processor
