The newly announced Nokia phone, Nokia Lumia 920 running Windows 8, the newest version of the Windows Mobile OS, is set to hit the market in a couple of weeks, and analysts are already saying that it could give Google and Apple a run for their money in sales.
Previous Windows phones were quality devices, but they lacked the big, beautiful screens and hardware found in Android phones and the iPhone (minus the big screen).
Much of the problems surfaced due to Windows 7.5 Mobile OS only being able to support single-core processors. While performance wasn’t much of a problem, people saw quad-core processors in Android phones, and felt like they were being shorted.
Now with Windows 8 finally coming out, smartphones running the OS can implement multi-core processors, and it’s about time!
Here is a list of specs for the Nokia Lumia 920:
- 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 768
- 1.5 GHz S4 Snapdragon dual-core processor (same one found in Samsung Galaxy S3)
- 1 GB RAM
- 2,000 mAh battery
- Windows 8
- Floating lens technology for camera
These impressive features are sure to give customers looking for a new smartphone and are bored of Android or the iPhone something to smile about.
In addition, the design of the Lumia 920 is unlike any we’ve ever seen, except for the previous Lumia. The unibody construction and fantastic build quality are up there with the best of them, and the colors really add to the customization factor.
Whether you’re looking for a smartphone with a great camera, big screen, or powerful specs, the Lumia 920 is sure to fit the bill.
Of course, the iPhone 5 is set to come out in a couple of weeks, so if you’re torn, you could wait a little while to make sure you’re getting the best phone for you.
