The 5 Coolest Things About Nokia's PureMotion HD+ Display Technology

By Adrian Covert on at

The PureView camera may be the headlining feature of Nokia's new Lumia 920 phone, but the display is no slouch either. The company says its PureMotion HD+ technology allows the phone to look better, scroll smoother and respond to user interaction better. Here's a quick rundown of the best and coolest new features this display offers.

  • Automatic colour adjustment to sunlight glare: When the sun hits your phone and washes everything out, Nokia says that the Lumia 920 can automatically detect that and adjust colours on the fly.
  • Extra Deep Blacks: The blacker, the better.
  • 1280x768 WXGA display: Nokia calls it "better than 720p" but really, it's just fitting the aspect ratio of the phone. But crammed into a 4.5-inch screen, those pixels will be nice and dense.
  • Super-smooth scrolling: Thanks to an undisclosed refresh rate, Nokia promise "blur-free" scrolling and pixel transition speeds that are 2.5x faster than other phones (presumably smoother transitions).
  • WORKS WITH GLOVES. I REPEAT, WORKS WITH GLOVES: If you've ever lived anywhere with a real winter, then you understand the frustration of trying to use a phone while out in the elements. Nokia's new screen can detect your taps, pinches and swipes without having to remove a glove and lose a hand to hypothermia. Awesome.
