Windows 8 phones will have a 4.5 inch display and wireless charging.

In a press conference this afternoon, Nokia unveiled its new flagship smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 920.

The phone has superior specs to the previous Lumia, namely a 1.5GHz dual core processor and Microsoft's new Windows Phone 8 operating system.

The dealmaker here may well be the inclusion of wireless charging. Nokia will make its own charging accessories available, including a Fatboy "pillow" unit (pictured below). The phones are compatible with the Qi standard, which means that there should be more public places to charge in the future. It also appears that the technology is built into the handset itself, meaning no need for a special battery cover.

The Lumia 920 also has a "PureView" camera, although it will be an 8.7 megapixel sensor, not the 41 megapixel beast rumoured. However, Nokia made pains to highlight that the 920's camera is still a solid piece of tech, featuring a new "floating lens" optical image stabilization system for sharper photography in low-light situations, an improved interface, and the ability to record video in 1080p.

There's no pricing or availability information yet, but stay tuned…
