Nokia Lumia 929 windows Phone Details Surfaced!

Nokia Lumia 929
Earlier rumors aired about Nokia's first five-inch super phone Lumia 929 to Mobile World Congress come the end of February in Abu Dhabi. The U.S. journalist Evan Blass has leaked photos of the Nokia Lumia 929 via his Twitter account.

The Nokia Lumia 929 is a high-end model, according to the Finns rumors developed for the U.S. mobile service provider Verizon. Now, the U.S. provider has accidentally confirmed the rumor hence U.S. bloggers stumbled in the online store of Verizon about the new Lumia, the cost of Lumia 929 will be around 777 dollars and will be available in black and white there in a very short time .

When Chinese traders Tao Bao stumbled, the Lumia 929 is supposed to be available already in a gray market. With the Lumia 929, Nokia would bring a device for the first time what is similar to the Samsung Galaxy S4 which has a five-inch display. This closes the gap between the smaller Lumia 925 and the giant Phablet 1520.

A similar variant for Europe is to be expected, such as the Lumia 935. Technically, the Lumia 929 is largely a more manageable version of the giant - Phablet Lumia 1520, currently which is one of the best Windows Phone Smartphone available in the market. The most important difference is that the new Lumia 929 is with its five-inch screen much easier to handle than the six-inch Phablet.

Like the Lumia 1520; Lumia 929 is coming with fast quad-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 with 2.2 GHz. The new Lumia would be significantly faster than the current Lumias in terms of the graphics performance and is expected to quadruple as the Lumia a1520. The operating system is Windows Phone 8 and it is used in the current version GDR3 with any extension of Nokia's Lumia Black firmware. Wireless Charging with Qi -compatible charging cradle is possible; NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and improved microphone technique (three or more microphones) are installed.

Important difference with Lumia 1520 is that its memory is not expandable supposedly, but 32 GB could be installed. The five-inch screen comes with a Full HD resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, while the Lumia 925 has only 1280x768 pixels. Tension remains the question of whether the new technology is installed for better readability in direct sunlight. The 20 megapixel camera is expected to resemble the Pure View camera with which the Lumia 1520 has.

In this case, the phone uses the high resolution of the sensor in order to optimize image quality for smaller variants of the five-megapixel photos. Flash replacement has done to serve a dual LED light. The Lumia 929 could be seen at the Mobile World Congress in late February as the last Windows phone under the brand name Nokia before Microsoft complete the acquisition of Nokia's mobile phone division. With the Lumia 929, Nokia and Microsoft could introduce a Windows Superphone the latest technology generation on the wireless trade show in Barcelona last, the much handier than the size of its technical model Lumia 1520. We can only hope that the version for the European market comes similar to that of Lumia 935 in the color range in the market.

The blog ViziLeaks already shows photos of the alleged internal supposed "Elvis" equipment mentioned in circulation. In the market it will be named as Lumia 1000 Eos or Lumia Smartphone as 1020. As the test of its predecessor Nokia 808 Pure View shows the main advantage of the sharper sensor is not necessarily in the ability to store photos in huge resolution. It's more about the optimization of image quality: This creates better at the end of eight or five-megapixel photos than a normal camera sensor. Unique to mobile phone cameras is the ability to zoom in quasi photos and videos at Pure View mode. The 41-megapixel technology Nokia has called Pure View 1 technology. For Lumia 920 and Lumia 925, however, the Pure View-2 technique was used: the higher image sharpness alone does not, however, provide through an optical image stabilizer for shake-poor video footage and high-intensity shooting in dull lighting or without flash. Exciting - but technically not that easy - would be the combination of both technologies: How would shoot in low light or low steady video possible as well as photos with impressive image quality. If Nokia manages to square this circle is on 11 Show in July.
