To be considered, that a competitive landscape has be announced by Nokia by showing off its new Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices ahead of the next-generation iPhone announcement. Both Nokia and Microsoft have taken the stage officially and wrapped off the next Lumia phone’s hardware and softwrae and all done ahead of Apple’s iPhone 5 unveil next week. With the Finnish company’s two new WP8 handsets are now become the flagship phones, the Lumia 920 and 820. While considering Lumia 920 takes many physical design elements from previous generations of Lumia smartphones, vastly improved internal hardware and display technology as well.
When compared to Lumia 900 and 800, the Lumia 920 is posing with a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 1280×768 pixels screen, and powered with a most adavanced processor, a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU to provide the Lumia Windows Phone 8 owners a faster browing experience and app installation and so. Along with its innovative features also added the NFC chip tech inside and also with a 2,000mAh battery.
Wait! There’s still something that interests, the wireless charging and the major snapper with an 8-megapixel camera with PureView built-in add-on. The new display and internal features are impressive, Nokia is touting the Lumia 920?s premier feature as its new camera lens. That includes a high quality 8MP sensor and 1080p HD video recorder. The Nokia Lumia 920 is the flagship Windows Phone 8 smartphone includes the latest Nokia’s PureView imaging innovation, using the advanced floating lens tech, the camera in the 920 is able to take in five times more light than competing smartphones without using flash, and making it possible to capture clear, brighter pictures and record videos indoor and night as well.
The most interesting part is the neat Nokia City technology, that is also added to the camera, as the latest addition to the Nokia Location suite. Simply, by pointing the camera at a city street, City Lens overlays information about restaurants, shops, hotels and more on the surfaces of buildings, for the most intuitive way to explore surroundings.
Nokia City Lens in Lumia 920 is the start of a new augmented reality experience that also enhances Nokia Maps, making it possible to move between maps view and augmented reality view to help provide people check their true direction and surroundings. Also added with an awesome enhancement to Nokia Drive and Nokia Transport. Nokia loaction suite of services is pretty considered the most comprehensive, integrated mapping experience of any handset.
Speaking about Nokia Lumia 820, announced as a mid-range budget Windows Phone 8 device, similar to Lumia 920, 820 also includes a Carl Zeiss 8MP camera, but without the PureView poser, however the Wireless Charging is available as an add-on, and features with a less than 920 of 4.3-inch 800×480 resolution display.
Samsung in the other hand announced its Windows 8-based smartphone called ATIV S and a new Android-powered Galaxy Camera. Even without the built-in auto-shoot modes, photo-wizard editing features, and dozens of one-tap filters and effects, the device packs in a 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, 21x optical zoom, and a 23 mm wide angle lens.
Now about the Apple’s next-generation iPhone will be debuted on September 12. The iPhone 5 is expected to include a taller 4-inch display screen with a resolution of 1136×640 pixels, and a powerful A6 processor, thinner design, 4G LTE, and a few new iOS 6 software. Despite the camera of the iPhone 4S being one of the biggest upgrades at the time, it certainly feels dated in comparison to the camera landscape today. The Pureview branding is up for attack with the redesigned cameras feature new “floating lens” tech for much-improved optical image stabilization, better shots in low light, in addition to a redesigned camera app.
We heard about the new opening between the LED flash and camera lens on the next-generation iPhone backs that we posted in May, but it is unclear if this is related to an upgraded camera system. We expect more to see improvements made to the new iPhone’s cameras when the device is announced Sept. 12.
But still we got no idea about the new iPhone’s camera, will it be posing the 8-megapixel or 12-megapixel is the question in mind? Whether it can compete with the Nokia’s Lumia 920/820 or Samsung’s ATIV S Windows Phone 8 smartphones?
