Nokia Lumia 920 Only Getting An Eight-Megapixel Camera? That’s “PureView”?


After we first got to see Nokia’s PureView technology with the Symbian-runing 808, we heard some rumors that, when PureView finally got around to coming to Windows Phone, it might not be quite as megapixel-heavy as it was in its debut. Even if we were talking more like the 20-megapixel range, there still seemed to be plenty of cause for excitement. What if we don’t even get that, though? We’ve heard that the rumored Lumia 920 is supposed to be a PureView model, but some newly-leaked specs suggest it won’t have anywhere close to the same kind of raw pixel count as the 808.

Some of these rumored specs include the 920 having a 4.5-inch HD display, a gigabyte of RAM, 1.5GHz dual-core SoC, and 32GB of flash. That all sounds great, but could this really be considered a PureView phone with only an eight-megapixel camera on-board? We’re sure Nokia would go out of its way to see that even that component delivers exceptional imagery performance, but it’s hardly a substitute for the kind of pixel-heavy sensor we’d been hoping for.

On the plus side, the 920 should also support wireless charging, through a Qi-compatible system. Some images of that accessory have just leaked, as you can check out above. We wonder if we’ll be seeing the same thing on future Lumia models, as well.

There’s also a new shot out of both the 920 and 820:
