Furthermore, The Verge also reports that the device will feature 32GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and a 4.5” high definition display. However, whilst it was reported that the device will feature Nokia’s PureView camera, the Nokia Lumia 920 will not have a 41 megapixel camera on board like the Nokia 808. Instead, the device will only feature a 8 megapixel camera with PureView software technologies such as image stabilization and its “oversampling” feature, which allow users to shoot extremely sharp photos even at lower resolutions. It is reported that the device will feature a 1.3 megapixel front camera too.

    With just two days left until the official unveiling, can’t say I wasn’t enjoying how much we *didn’t* know about what Nokia is going to announce. Wireless charging sounds awesome…so exciting to see what else Nokia has up its sleeve =D
