To power the Lumia 920, Nokia chose Qualcomm’s (NASDAQ: QCOM) Snapdragon S4 processor, which is reportedly 30 percent more efficient than quad-core alternatives. This will allow the device’s 2000 mAh battery to last longer.
Nokia lived up to the expectation of being the first company to heavily push wireless charging. To make this as convenient as possible, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf will add charging plates to its shops across the country. The plates will sit on top of tables, enabling customers to immediately and seamlessly charge their new Nokia devices. While Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is a relatively small chain of coffee shops, one can only imagine what would happen if Nokia charging plates began to appear at Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX).
The Lumia 920 also features a new technology called “super sensitive touch.” With this element, consumers can use the device while wearing gloves.
All told, these and other features make the Lumia 920 one of the most exciting smartphones announced in 2012.
