Both devices are expected to be announced on Sept. 5

Samsung may have struck the first blow in the Windows Phone 8 battle, but Nokia isn't about to roll over and play dead despite its meager results with Windows Phone 7.x. EVLeaks has posted two images which apparently depict the upcoming Lumia 820 and the Lumia 920 with PureView.
 
Not much is know about either device other than the fact that the mid-range Lumia 820 features a 4.3" screen, while the flagship Lumia 920 features 4.5" screen. As you can tell from the following images, both will likely be available in a number of colors to suit your design aesthetic.

I hate to sound like an advert, but it sounds like you should take a look at the new samsung Galaxy Camera:

which looks the business if you really want to get good pics.
The 21x zoom is nice, but for me personally I like that it does a nice 23mm (equiv.) at the wide angle side of things, a big change from the very narrow field of view of the usual camera-phones.

Once I am looking to replace my P&S, I will probably look for something similar with Android (or other OS) built in just for the connectivity of the device. Currently I use a Nikon P300 and couldn't be happier with the low light abilities of it.

If this is full PureView (as I agree the packaging seems small), it would make a great phone for when I don't have my DSLR or P&S with me.

I'm with AmbroseAthan.

The Galaxy camera isn't a replacement for a cameraphone, precisely because it isn't a "phone", per se (no GSM/LTE connectivity). So unlike a phone, it's not something you will always have with you.

It's also not a replacement for an 808, because the 1/2.3" sensor on it is even smaller than the 1/1.8" sensor on the old N8, let alone the 1/1.2" 808 sensor.

True, it has a zoom lens, but so does every other compact camera in its class. Other than running Android apps, it doesn't distinguish itself from the P&S crowd.

I'm after a cameraphone with a large sensor and a bright lens that can keep up with my system camera, especially in low light and indoors. If the 920 doesn't have a large sensor, I'd consider the 808 over any other cameraphone at the moment (notice I said cameraphone instead of smartphone, imaging is a priority for me, and I'm willing to take the usability and app hit of symbian over android to get what I want. Your mileage may vary).
