Lumia Icon

Nokia has announced a new Windows Phone in its Lumia lineup, the Lumia Icon. The phone is based on the Lumia 1520 and has virtually the same spec sheet.

Lumia Icon comes with a 5.1″Super Sensitive ClearBlack AMOLED display with Full HD resolution. Lumia Icon isn’t the most compact of phones, being 9.8mm thick and 167g heavy.

Under the hood, Lumia Icon features with a 2.2Ghz quad-core processor with 2 GB worth memory and 32 GB non-expandable storage.

At the back lies the entire package’s main attraction: the coveted 20.1 megapixel PureView camera. It comes with a 1/2.5″ BSI, f/2.4 aperture, OIS and dual-LED Flash. It also does 1080p videos at 30 fps.

The phone also comes with all the cool software apps which comes pre-installed on the 1520, and take the same duo of 5 megapixel and full resolution photos on pressing the shutter, the former meant for easier sharing.

Connectivity options of Lumia Icon include WiFi 802.11ac, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, 4G LTE, FM Radio and microUSB 2.0. Lumia Icon also comes with a 2,420 mAh battery which might not sound much but wireless charging is supported.

Availability and pricing details for international release are not disclosed yet.
