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'd rather have Samsung's new WP8 phone, it looked better and had a bigger screen...

I'm actually hoping that the 4.3" 820 has similar specs to the 920, besides the camera. I really wish phone makers would offer smart phones with high end specs that dont have 5" screens just because they barely fit into my pocket and I find them awkward to use with just one hand.

If I want to watch movies, read books, or surf the web, I'll just go ahead and use a 10"+ tablet. If I'm completely honest, I would not object to having a device with a sub 4" screen...

Unfortunately I am the minority in this battle and the trend is "bigger is better" :(

I agree. Make everything the same quality and same specs otherwise, but give it a smaller screen.

I'd go for that.

I'm in the opposite camp. After having used the iPhone 4 with it's sub-4" screen for so long, I'm definitely looking forward to getting a phone with a ~5" screen. Just is a lot easier to browse web pages and watch videos on the larger screen.

I'd love to get the Galaxy Note with WP8 on it, actually, but I don't think Samsung has plans for that at the moment and I'm already having to wait until late October to ditch the iPhone. So, I can't wait and will have to decide between the Lumia and what amounts to the Galaxy S2 with WP8 on it, unless some other compelling Windows phones are unveiled.
