Bloomberg earlier announced according to their interview with a Danske Bank analyst that the use of Windows Phone 8 operating system by Microsoft is proven to be a hit in the international market afterLumia 920’s initial supply has sold out in Germany. Nokia now has two versions of Windows Phone 8-based smartphones – Lumia 820 which is the smaller type and the bigger Nokia 920. They both come with dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon system-on-chips or S4 SoCs, 1GB RAM, Synaptic ClearPad 3, top signal-to-noise ratio and ultra-sensitive quality touch screens running on the said Windows application.

It also has larger 2000mAh battery that is the largest ever inNokia’s history.
Improved Version of a Winning Model
As announced on September 5, 2012, Nokia released its follow up model to the previously released Nokia Lumia 900 last November 5, 2012. This is no other than the Nokia Lumia 920 designed after the Nokia Lumia 900 won the Best Smartphone Award in the Consumer Electronics Show 2012. This is a clear indication that the Lumia line will be around in the foreseeable future especially with Nokia Lumia 920 which is a great addition to Nokia’s Lumia line. It is the new flagship of Nokia’s Smartphone products, replacing the Nokia Lumia 900. Like its predecessor, the Nokia Lumia 920 has a polycarbonate shell available in glossy and matte finishes.
Other Exceptional Features
Nokia Lumia 920 also has 32GB of internal storage. However, although Windows Phone 8 supports storage expansion, the Nokia Lumia 920 does not offer it. It has a 4.5 inchesPure Motion HD+ display running at 1280 x 768 resolutions at 332 pixels per inch. Its LCD is the fastest LCD Nokia has ever made in a Smartphone. The super sensitive touch screen is also covered by curved Gorilla Glass. It also has Nokia’s Pure View technology built in its rear camera. Its rear camera features an 8.7 megapixel image sensor with Carl Zeiss lenses. This camera is also capable of shooting 1080p quality videos. The Nokia Lumia 920 also has a front facing camera featuring a 1.3 megapixel image sensor capable of recording 720p quality videos. On top of that, it features 4G networks LTE and will also support NFC. It also has other connectivity features such as Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n. It’s compatible with USB v2.0 and USB On-the-go.
Unique Enhancements for Improved Functionalities
The batter is not only enhanced in terms of size and power. It can be charged in 2 ways, either physically or inductively. Physically by plugging a charger into a socket and connecting your phone. Inductively by using Nokia’s wireless charging pad. Fatboy will also produce its own charging pad that can take on this task. The battery on a full charge will last for up to 400 hours – in standby mode for 10 hours of 3G talk time and 67 hours for music playback.The Nokia Lumia 920 is a huge step up from its predecessor – the Nokia Lumia 900. It has improved on most of the aspects that matter – from its CPU, memory, internal storage, battery, display and both its cameras. In the US, it will be exclusively distributed by AT&T that is the trademark of a great telecommunications product. It really stands out not only among its competitors but also among other Windows Phone 8-equipped smartphones. The great entry of the Lumia series proves that Nokia is determined to continue innovating in the future.
Upcoming Expectations in Mobile Phone Industry
Nokia Lumia 920 is definitely a clear success in the smartphone business but supply shortage will be likely if the industry analysts’ evaluation will materialize. It is predicted that the demand will increase to up to 36 million of these Microsoft powered smartphones in 2013. Nokia’s current production capacity is still too far to reach that figure that was designed to generate around 23 million of these smartphones for the same market duration.It is therefore advisable for buyers to get one before it runs out of stock.
