Nokia Lumia 920 PureView and Lumia 820 renders and photos leaked

Can’t wait until September 5th to see what Nokia is cooking? Well, here are the first renders and pictures of two Windows Phone 8 handsets that NOkia is supposedly going to unveil next week. The first one seen above is the Nokia Lumia 920 PureView high-end WP8 devices which is said to sport a 4.5″ screen and a PureView camera (but don’t expect a 41Mp sensor like the Nokia 808). Screen resolution is not know but I would be surprised if it was 1280×768 instead of 720P. This the increased width could be used for added on screen buttons which could be especially useful in camera mode to make full use of the PureView technology.

Nokia’s mysterious June 18th announcement is not related to Microsoft’s event

Just a quick heads up about the Nokia announcements that is being teased at on the company’s Facebook page. The first image plastered with the 6-18-12 date shows a satellite view of Hawaii while the second one is a picture of an Roland TR-808 drum machine. Now if we connect the dots..Hawaii’s Area Code: 808 + Roland 808 = Nokia PureView 808. So, there you have it. Microsoft’s Monday announcement is sure a hell not going to be the US launch of the Nokia PureView 808…

Alleged upcoming Nokia Windows Phone 8 handset specs and renders leaked: PureView and Adreno 320 GPU on board

As it’s usually the case with such things I’ll first advice you to take the following info with a pinch of salt and remain cautious. According to two supposedly leaked Nokia internal slides what you see here is the upcoming flagship Nokia Windows Phone 8 handset which will unsurprisingly sport the 41Mpx camera sensor introduced by the Nokia 808 alongside a Xenon flash, a 4.3″ curved HD Display (no AMOLED?), a dual-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro which includes the Adreno 320 GPU (surprising..was expecting it to be for tablets only at first…). The phone also has an enigmatic “Rich Recording” video recording technology. I personally wouldn’t be surprised if the device’s name was Nokia Lumia PureView
