Last week, rumours circulated about Nokia’s new range of Lumia handsets. Now, another leak from evleaks suggests that the flagship Lumia 920 may feature wireless charging.
The Verge is reporting the rumour in some detail, suggesting that the new phone will support the Qi wireless power standard, making it compatible with other wireless charging systems. While there’s no way of confirming the rumour’s validity, Nokia designer Marko Ahtisaari did suggest to The Guardian earlier this year that wireless charging was something the compnay was considerdering.
The Verge also reports that the Lumia 920 will pack 32GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and a 4.5-inch HD display. It also claims that the Lumia 920 will feature a PureView-branded 8-megapixel camera — not the 41-megapixel example of the company’s 808 PureView handset — and a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front.
While The Verge seems certain these specs are correct — and they might be! We don’t have long to wait until we know for sure: Nokia is holding an event with Microsoft on September 5, and it seems likely that any new handsets will be officially announced then. [The Verge, evleaks]
