Nokia's two Windows Phone 8 handsets

Nokia has unveiled its first handsets powered by Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 OS - the Lumia 920. The new device features wireless charging and what they call a PureView camera offering better video and still images compared to other rival devices. 

The Lumia 920 features a Snapdragon S4 processor, a 4.5-inch curved screen. It brings several Nokia-only functions designed to make it stand out from other Windows Phone 8 devices. The company claims that the handset could capture up to 10 times the amount of light than other handsets saying that the advantages were brighter, clearer indoor images.

The new Lumia features an 8.7-megapixel sensor, which however is many times below the 41MP resolution sensor on an earlier PureView device.

A cheaper Lumia 820 shares the same operating system and technology as the 920, but has a smaller screen, lower quality camera and requires the purchase of an optional exterior shell to add wireless charging.
