Nokia Lumia 820 and 920 Windows Phone 8 renders leaked?

The Lumia 920. Form factor too small for PureView?

Renders of both the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 have been leaked by EvLeaks. If these images are accurate, then we can at least expect what's about to be announced by Nokia.

Samsung has already unveiled its ATIV S Apollo Windows Phone, we've yet to see anything official from HTC or other OEMs, and there seems to be more interest in what the Finnish manufacturer can come up with to top its already established Lumia line of Windows Phone 7.5 devices.

According to the tweet, the Lumia 920 (see above) sports a sizeable 4.5" display with PureView technology. This could well be the device we believe to have recorded the short Nokia film. Then again, while it looks like a Lumia 800/900 (certainly not a bad thing), we can't help but wonder if the camera on the rear of the device is too small for the PureView technology? It almost looks too much like a Lumia 900.

The Lumia 820 in its apparent glossy glory

The Lumia 820 (see above) is the mid-range Windows Phone, packing a 4.3" display (everything's gone large!) but no PureView technology, according to the accompanied tweet. This device may look familiar and rightly so as we've previously covered the above design being leaked. It was only yesterday that we last looked at apparent Nokia "Arrow" images.

We'll be finding out more at Nokia's event next week, which Windows Phone Central will be attending. Because we're still unsure as to what we should be expecting, it's starting to become rather exciting - especially since Nokia welcomed back Samsung to Windows Phone but noted that their presentation was just a warm up for something larger.

So there you have it folks, what do you make of the renders? Sound off in the comments with your thoughts.
