Lumia 900's resolution is 800 x 480, 1.4GHz single-core processor, and the RAM is 512 M. Now improvements have been made. Lumia 920 has equipped with 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 4.5-inch 1280×720 display (326 PPI!); 8.7 megapixels Carl Zeiss camera, and support pureview shooting technology, wireless charging, and glove-friendly touchscreen.

PureView imaging technology
Lumia 920 is equipped with a 8.7 megapixel rear camera, and the PureView technology is the first time being used on the Lumia phones. PureView technology uses advanced optical image stabilization technology. In a low light environment, and even the flash lamp is not opened, it is still able to intake five times more light than ordinary mobile phone's camera, hence no matter users are indoor, or at night, it is capable to capture clear, bright pictures and videos.
To enhance effects from dark, Lumia 920 adopted a new method – Backside illumination. The back-illumination (BSI) and a conventional front-illumination (FSI) have a texture difference between the photosensitive effects. Thus, although the size of the pixels is the same, but its pixel photosensitive effect is better.
Lumia 920 also uses a Carl Zeiss lens, f/2.0 aperture to capture more lights into sensor. These changes mean that you can shoot better photos on a cloudy day, evening or indoor.

There has some phone supports digital image stabilization feature, but this cannot be compared with the OIS. Lumia 920 will be judged by the built-in gyroscope phone direction of movement, and to move the entire shooting module to ensure that the hand jitter does not affect shooting. In addition to be able to help bring excellent video, OIS can significantly enhance the photographic effect in the dark light, because the longer the exposure time, the more stable needed.
