Prices of the accessories revealed
Nokia took the wraps off its Lumia 920 at the Nokia World 2012 event in New York City. The Nokia Lumia 920 will pack in a Snapdragon S4 and a PureView sensor. It also comes with the Blink app, which is the smartphone's Burst mode. The smartphone will feature an LCD display, which is a little higher than the HD displays available now. With a polycarbonate body the phone will be available in many colours - yellow and red being two of them. City Lens, an exclusive app for Lumia 920 gives information about restaurants and stores on the phone, while looking at the world through the camera. Microsoft collaborated with Rovio for Angry Birds Roost, which is a portal for all things Angry Birds, including the latest games, news feeds, ringtones, and videos.
The New 'lenses' feature in the camera enables you to edit the photo as you’re taking it. Photosynth Lens can be used to capture 360 degree panorama photos. The PureView captures between five and 10 times the light compared to other smartphone cameras, and the floating lens technology is for night shots to balance the lens and stabilise it for images and video.
The Nokia Lumia 920 comes with Nokia Drive, which offers free turn-by-turn voice navigation. It also includes indoor maps of train stations and bus terminals. The City Lens app provides an 'intuitive' way to explore a city using augmented reality. Once you have set a route, you can look at the street through the phone, and get directions.
The Lumia 920 packs in a new PureMotion HD+ screen with a fast refresh rate. It comes with ClearBlack screen that automatically adjusts colour tone and brightness of the screen. The phone comes with a 2000mAh battery -- the biggest that Nokia has ever made. The Lumia 920 will come with 7GB free SkyDrive storage.
Clove has put a disclaimer in its blog post which reads, “At the moment we do not have a release date confirmed, but the accessories are expected to be available for the launch of the handsets”.
