Nokia Lumia 920 Survives Its Most Extreme Durability Test So Far

It is now commonplace for technology websites to carry out a range of tests on smartphone models to see just how durable they are. These days, smartphones are subject to ever more creative tests, with common scenarios including drop tests, exposure to extreme conditions and being damaged by various objects to see which phones are the most durable.

Of course, the Nokia Lumia 920 has gained a reputation for being one of the most hardwearing smartphones on the market, after performing well in previous tests.

In this test, the Nokia Lumia 920 handset was attached to a weather balloon along with a GPS tracker been released into the atmosphere. It then floated to the edge of space to a height of 35,000 metres, which is surely the highest a mobile phone has ever been. During its trip, the handset was exposed to temperatures as low as -60 degrees, and then made its way back to earth.

When the phone landed, it was tracked down using the accompanying GPS tracker, and impressively it appeared to have sustained no noticeable damage, and worked as normal. This test adds to the Lumia 920’s impressive track record of being one of the most hardwearing phones out there. Footage captured by the Lumia 920 on its journey can be found over at NokiaPowerUser.

Is Nokia Working On A Lumia Phablet?

Back in 2011, Samsung launched a device called the Galaxy Note, which at the time had the largest display of any smartphone at 5.3 inches. In conjunction with its S-Pen stylus, it offers superior levels of versatility to many other smartphones, paving the way for the now popular phablet niche.

Prior to its launch, there were doubts about the popularity of its large screen format, but the Samsung Galaxy Note has proven to be a hit, with an estimated 12 million sales to date. The device was followed up in September with the Galaxy Note 2, which came with an even larger 5.5 inch display, and this device also became very popular and critically acclaimed. Samsung has recently added to its line up of large screened smartphones, with a new device called the Galaxy Mega which comes with a huge 6.3 inch display.

It is likely that phablet devices will continue to grow in popularity and size, and some other manufacturers have also released their own phablet devices. Tech Radar has recently reported that Nokia may be developing its own phablet smartphone. Because Nokia exclusively uses Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system, this is a very interesting idea, as the majority of current phablet smartphones of course utilise the Android operating system. It is likely that Windows Phone operating system may be well suited to such a device, and would allow Nokia to build on the success of its popular Lumia series.

Nokia is yet to reveal any information about this device, but Tech Radar reports that its source on this story is the Financial Times, which is certainly credible source. Given the popularity of its Lumia series though, and the popularity of phablet devices in general though it would not be much of a surprise if Nokia was in the processes developing such a device.

Windows Phone OS To Support Full HD Screens And Quad-Core CHipsets By 2014

Last year, Microsoft launched Windows Phone 8 which is the latest instalment of its mobile operating system. The release of the software saw a number of new smartphone models launched to showcase Windows Phone 8, from a number of manufacturers including Samsung, HTC and Nokia. The latter is by far the most successful when it comes to devices with the operating system, such as the Lumia 920 which has been one of most popular smartphone models in recent months.

The Lumia 920 is widely regarded as the most impressive smartphone model ever released by the Finnish manufacturer. Among its key features are an 8.7 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, 4.5 inch PureView HD+ display and dual-core processor. Of course, plenty of appealing smartphone models have higher touchscreen resolutions and more processing power than the Lumia 920.

However, this is due to the fact that the Windows Phone operating system is currently unable to support quad-core processors or full high definition displays. However, according to Unwired View Microsoft has recently announced that it is working on an update which will allow future Windows Phone devices to support these features. Visit our website for more information about the Nokia Lumia 920 and compare Nokia Lumia 920 contracts.

Although the Lumia 920 falls short from many competing devices when it comes to its resolution and processor, it is still known for providing one of the best smartphone user experiences out there. Unwired View reports that Microsoft will be rolling out an update to Windows Phone 8 later this year, which will allow future devices with the operating system to support touchscreens with resolutions of 1080p and quad-core chipsets.

As soon as we hear of any more information regarding the launch schedule for this software update, we will be sure to keep you posted.
