Nokia, the Finland-based mobile maker that once dominated the market with its Symbian-based phones, is now hitting a wall and trying exhaustedly to prove both to users and shareholders that it can reshape its fortunes and seize back its glorious past. The company supported such argument by announcing not just one but two new handsets – the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 – which both run the Windows Phone 8 platform of Microsoft.
The new Lumia smartphones boast large displays, good processors, and some notable features to beat. Moreover, they are said to have a price tag good enough to satisfy the average smartphone shopper. So, what really makes the new Lumia smartphones special and what impact can they create in the market? Can the Lumia 920 with Microsoft’s Windows 8 be a strong contender against the iOS and Android?
Designed to deliver the very best Nokia Lumia experience, the Lumia 920 is Nokia’s flagship handset. It is powered by Windows Phone 8, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 4.5-inch touchscreen WXGA display (with 1280 x 768 pixel resolution), 25% brighter screen panel than its competitors, NFC, and a 2000mAh battery unit. It’s the company’s enhanced version of the Lumia 900 and its answer to the upcoming iPhone 5.
The PureView feature in Lumia 920 enables users to enjoy the sheer pleasure of taking pictures with improved lens and enhanced lighting. With the camera’s 8-megapixels, users are assured of getting better picture quality which can be enough to surpass those coming from competitors. Another thing to consider is the Lumia 920’s wireless charging feature. Users who have been tired of seeing the ubiquitous cords can now charge their handset without the tangle-prone wires. However, this special charging feature comes with an extra price. While the Lumia 920 is loaded with lots of impressive features, its biggest role perhaps lies on the fact that Nokia is counting on it for their redemption.
After losing more than $1 billion during the last quarter, Nokia has been in big trouble and watched helplessly how its smartphone shipments go down the drain. It seeks help and eyes the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 to be their saviors. Moreover, we must consider the market share performance of Windows Phone which occupies a low spot in the list. The Lumia may change all these when it takes off before the end of this year.
