With the Nokia World 2012 event just a few short hours away, the leaks about the brand’s upcoming smartphones continue to pour in. At the event, Nokia is expected to unveil the Lumia 920, the brand’s flagship smartphone, and there have been a few details about it which have been leaked online. The latest bit of information comes via an anonymous Twitter user who simply goes by the title E. In the latest leak regarding this upcoming handset, E has posted an image portraying the Lumia 920 in five colour options.
This anonymous tipster had posted an image earlier as well showing off this handset in three colour options – yellow, grey and red. The new image has two new colours as well to give potential consumers more options to choose from, which are the never-fail colours of black and white.

This handset will be Nokia's new flagship Windows Phone and will include some impressive hardware specifications to match, which include a pad that will help in wirelessly charging the handset. The handset will feature 32GB internal storage, 1GB RAM and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. It will feature a 4.5-inch HD display.
Commenting on the camera of the Lumia 920, a report by The Verge stated, “One rumored aspect of the Lumia 920 is a PureView camera. We can confirm that Nokia will indeed brand its Lumia 920 camera as PureView, but that the camera will be an 8-megapixel one — not the 41-megapixel one found on the company's 808 PureView handset. Nokia is focusing on marketing the Lumia 920 as PureView thanks to some advancements in image stabilization and camera software that it plans to ship on the device. The front of the device will also include a 1.3-megapixel camera”.
The handset will run on the Windows 8 operating system and Microsoft had officially raised the curtain on Windows Phone 8 at an event in San Francisco earlier this year and claimed that it is the most advanced mobile OS Microsoft has ever made.
Here is a look at some of the highlighted features available on Windows Phone 8:
- Multi-core processor support: Windows Phone was a slick OS that ran smoothly on handsets with a single processor. The latest OS now features multi-core support with Belfoire claiming that they’re ready for whatever hardware makers dream up.
- Bigger, sharper screens: Windows Phone 8 supports two new screen resolutions—1280 x 768 and 1280 x 720, making it compatible with new handsets that will feature high-definition 720p displays.
- More flexible storage: Windows Phone 8 supports removable microSD cards, so users can stuff their phone with extra photos, music and whatever else is important and then easily move it all onto their PC.
- NFC wireless sharing: In Windows Phone 8, NFC helps make sharing photos, Office docs and contact info easier. One can achieve this by tapping their phone on another NFC-equipped device.
- Internet Explorer 10: The next version of Windows Phone comes with the same web browsing engine that’s headed for Window 8 PCs and tablets. Microsoft claims that IE10 is faster and more secure with advanced anti-phishing features like SmartScreen Filter to block dangerous websites and malware.
- Better maps and directions: Windows Phone 8 builds in Nokia mapping as part of the platform. This partnership will provide more detailed maps and turn-by-turn directions in many countries, plus the ability to store maps offline on your phone so you can work with maps without a data connection.
- Improved apps and games: Microsoft states that basing Windows Phone 8 on the Windows core will unleash a new wave of amazing apps and especially games.
