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...

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.

Yeah, since that's probably the best design Samsung has done in the last couple of years or so.

My new phone but then I feel these are fan renders based on previous leaks.

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. :(

For what, Jolla suing them? Nokia should actually stay as it is
