If today’s leaks are correct, Nokia is set to announce new Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 smartphones, bringing its highly-praised PureView technology to its line of Windows Phone devices.

In renders provided by Twitter user EvLeaks (via The Verge), both the Lumia 820 and the Lumia 920 are shown in various different colors, sporting similar designs to earlier Lumia models.

The Lumia 920 is said to feature a 4.5-inch screen, launching as Nokia’s biggest smartphone to date. However, the big news is that the company will include PureView optics in this handset, delivering high-resolution photos similar to the Nokia 808 PureView.
