Nokia Lumia Icon: meet the 20MP, 1080p Windows Phone flagship

5in 1080p OLED screen, 20MP PureView camera and metal construction are among this handset’s killer features

Nokia has torn the wrappers off a brand new flagship phone – but we’re not sure when (or even if) it’s coming to the UK.

Mic check 1, 2 (and 3, and 4)

The Nokia Lumia Icon runs, as you’d expect, on Windows Phone 8. It’s got a full metal body (we like), a 20MP PureView camera with Zeiss optics (we like) and four built-in microphones that capture much clearer audio than other smartphones (we like, assuming they’re telling the truth).

There’s a 5in 1080p OLED screen (that’s 441 pixels-per-inch), 2.2GHz quad-core processor, 32GB of storage (plus 7GB of free OneDrive cloud storage) and a 2,420mAh battery that supports wireless charging.

More after the break...

Is it UK bound?

The bad news is that at present Nokia has announced it as a US-only Verizon exclusive. There might well be some news on European availability and pricing come Mobile World Congress in February. As always, we’ll let you know.
