The camera's advanced features were spelled out to an audience of journalists in New York by Jo Harlow, Nokia Executive Vice President. Among the major features of the new phone are a 4.5-inch screen, wireless charging, Nokia Maps (with offline support) -- including an augmented reality feature Nokia calls "City Lens" a powerful "PureView" camera, and even NFC support.
The 4.5-inch screen is a WXGA model that offers better-than-720p HD resolution. Nokia claims it's the "brightest" and "fastest" smartphone screen on the market.
Nokia demoed NFC as a solution for easy music playback with NFC-compatible speakers: just tap the phone to the speakers, and wireless music playback is enabled without the need to key in a passcode.
