Leaked: Nokia WP8 Devices Can Be Charged Wirelessly

X

Leaked images of Nokia’s first Windows 8 Phones reveal they can be charged wirelessly.

Nokia is due to unveil its first Windows 8 devices any day now and the pressure is on.

A couple of years ago there was a schism in the smartphone market, with Sony, Motorola, Samsung and LG choosing to endorse open-source Android, while Nokia snubbed the underdogs for a partnership with Microsoft. Ever since that deal, Nokia has produced a series of mediocre devices, deflecting criticisms with claims their master plan will come into effect when they release their first Windows Phone 8 device.

That day is dawning.

Twitter user @evleaks has leaked images of the two devices expected to be debuted: the 4.5″ Lumia 920 with PureView and the 4.3″ Lumia 820. The 920 is where the hype is because it apparently inherits some of the photographic pedigree from Nokia’s 48MP PureView camera phone, (we say apparently with scepticism because it has an 8MP camera.)

The more interesting revelation comes from a photo depicting the phone being charged without wires. @evleaks refers to it as a ‘Charge Pad,’ and although similar technologies have been put to work before (think Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus), none has ever looked this good. In fact, both smartphones adopt vibrant colours and monolith bodies that we’re quite fond of.

It is believed Nokia and Microsoft are launching their WP8 devices so late in an effort to steal some of Apple’s iPhone 5 thunder, which is rumoured for September 12th.
