by 58 comments

The Lumia 920 is already available in several color options, five to be precise, but it seems there is going to be one more addition to the range. According to the Facebook account who uploaded the image, you might soon be able to purchase the Lumia 920 in a mint green flavor.

There is no information as to when this color will be available and in which markets. Also, the fact that the image is still using a yellow theme for the screenshot instead of green, which is available in the settings, makes this image slightly doubtful so take it with a pinch of salt. Read more »

It’s obvious that the post processing applied to the different camera modes is quite different, but surprisingly, we like the Burst mode output better. Read more »
