NEW YORK — Nokia is revealing its first smartphones to run the next version of Windows, doubling down on its bet that an alliance with Microsoft can pull the company out of a deep sales swoon.
Nokia’s new flagship phone is the Lumia 920. It has a “PureView” camera. Nokia says its lenses shift to compensate for shaky hands, resulting in sharper images in low light and smoother video capture.
Nokia Corp. is revealing the new phones in New York. The American market is a trendsetter, but Nokia has been nearly absent from it in the last few years. One of CEO Stephen Elop’s goals is to recapture the attention of the U.S. shopper.
The price and availability date of the new phones weren’t immediately available.
