In the lead-up to Nokia's announcement tomorrow, images and details have begun to surface on a few of the firm's latest Lumia smartphones. We were able to show a few shots of the Lumia 920 and 820 yesterday. Since then, however, further details and images have surfaced.

Most notably, perhaps, is an image depicting a wireless-charger station. Place your phone on top and power will surge through in the form of electro-magnetic induction, with a visual appearance not all too dissimilar, if not a little smaller, than the pebble-like charger of Samsung's GALAXY S III.

This writer does believe in the future of wireless charging and recognises that sometimes that extra effort to place a cable in the device makes the difference between deciding to charge or not, though it was thought that the vision would include larger charging plates, capable of supporting multiple devices at a time. For this particular mass-charging application, it appears as though a third-party charger will be required.

The Lumia 920, according to The Verge, will feature 32GB of flash storage, a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU and 1GB of RAM, with a 4.5in HD display. On somewhat of a downer, it's suggested that the device will feature not a 41-megapixel PureView sensor but, alas, a somewhat more common 8-megapixel alternative, still advertised as PureView, thanks to enhancements in image stability and filtering.

Other accessories have also been pictured, such as a rather funky Bluetooth headset.

Do you think the 1.5GHz Dual core will be plenty to run windows 8 smoothly as well as 3D games

If it's enough for Android then it's enough for WP8 I reckon. Some US versions of the Galaxy S3 use a dual core Qualcomm chip (paired with a different network chip to the international Exynos version). Same for HTC One X I think, instead of a Tegra. It's actually faster under some circumstances…

cool thanks for the quick reply, ive got a tegra 3 @1.6GHz on my tablet and it is a beast
I'm torn between these and the Samsung wp8, I do like the idea of wireless charging
any one know if this has got a micro SD slot, or any memory card slot, thats a big deciding factor for me, althouh ill probably get this anyway for the design XD
