Nokia Lumia 920/WP8: Qi wireless charging and PureView!
September 05th, 2012 - 12:29 pm ET by C. D.
The Nokia Lumia 920 should be one of the Windows Phone 8 smartphones unveiled by Nokia during the Nokia World event, with it also possibly bringing with it wireless charging via the Qi technology.
One of the rumours which appeared at the end of last week was about the future Nokia Lumia 920 running Windows Phone 8 which should be unveiled during Nokia World this week. If we are to believe additional information released by The Verge web site, the rumours are correct.
The device corresponds to code name Nokia Phi, which will be released as the Lumia 920 – Nokia’s new leading model. It should come with a 4.5" HD display with a 1.5 GHz dual core processor, 1 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage space.

The Verge adds that it will benefit from Qi wireless charging (pronounced "chi"), a technology developed by the Wireless Power Consortium which has been standardised – therefore making it compatible with numerous charging devices.
Nokia was looking to integrate the Wireless Power Consortium’s technology quite quickly after its creation. Its presence in smartphones is therefore not overly surprising.
As presented last Friday, it should be labelled PureView, like the Nokia 808 PureView but it won’t have the same 41 mega pixel super lens that this other device does. It will instead come with an 8 mega pixel lens, with a 1.3 mega pixel lens on the front for videoconferencing.
The PureView term will instead be used here due to the stabiliser and dedicated programs that are available on the phone. We will therefore not likely have the same device as the Nokia 808 PureView, as the blog All Things Digital suggested this weekend.
Update : These are indeed the specifications just announced during the Microsoft / Nokia conference ahead of Nokia World
