New Nokia Lumia 920 features leaked ahead of release

updated 10:54 am EDT, Mon September 3, 2012

Wireless charging, 32GB storage said confirmed

While images of Nokia's forthcoming Lumia 920 have already leaked, the specifications of the device are now said to have been revealed ahead of its expected launch this week. Sources close to Nokia have spoken with The Verge, revealing that the new handset will support wireless charging, among other features. The sources also revealed that, while the phone will feature PureView branding, it will not have a camera on par with the one seen in the 808 PureView.

The Lumia 920 will reportedly support the Qi wireless power standard. The 920 will have a magnetic strip hidden in its back, allowing it to charge when placed in contact with Qi-compatible products. Qi compatibility has been featured in a number of accessories, and a similar wireless charging technology was featured in the ill-fated Palm Pre, but the 920 will mark one of the first times the Qi standard has been built into a flagship phone from a major manufacturer.

Inside, the Lumia 920 is said to pack 32GB of storage and 1GB of RAM. It will run Windows Phone 8 on a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, though details on its manufacture were unavailable. The 920 will also have a 4.5-inch HD display, as was previously expected.

The camera it thought to be one of the main selling points for the device. Lumia's 808 PureView drew a good deal of attention in the tech world thanks to its 41MP camera, which produced images of such high quality that Nokia shot a promo for the phone with the phone itself. The Lumia 920, though, is said to feature an 8MP camera. Nokia reportedly will still market the device as a PureView due to advancements in image stabilization and camera software that will ship with the device. In addition to the expected 8MP main camera, the front-facing camera will have a 1.3MP sensor.

When the device is announced on Wednesday, it is expected to be an AT&T exclusive with an October or early November launch date. Previous reports have had Nokia preparing to launch a phone on Verizon, but such an announcement will likely have to wait until after the initial device unveiling.
