    Now that the 928 has been announced and there are rumors floating around about it's camera being better than the 920's, let's start a discussion here. Since the phones apparently have the same cameras, what does everyone think the odds are that the 920 will get a firmware update to match that of the 928? I'd be curious to get some input from those who are using the 928's camera and also see if there are any rumors going around about a coming update for the 920's camera. To me, the same camera should mean the same quality, save for the Xenon flash in the 928 (not sure if that makes a HUGE difference or not).

    fingers crossed what ever firmware they can trickle down to the 920 would be good

    Agreed. If they are, in fact, the same cameras, there's no reason the 920's can't keep getting updated.

    I still can't find any details on this for the 928, but as far as I know the xenon flash requires a mechanical shutter to function properly, and that in itself should bring a slight (likely negligible) improvement in image quality.

    Also, the algorithms for flash photography are probably very different, and if Nokia's previous xenon flash phones are anything to go by, it should be WAY better than the 920, or any other LED flash phone for that matter:

    iPhone 5 (LED): http://www.esato.com/phonephotos/cam...0531DHr10J.jpg

    good article on xenon: 2013 could be the year of Xenon

    So, yes.. the 928 has the potential to be better than the 920, but I am not sure if the jpeg processing from the 928 can be used for both phones.. maybe just the daylight photos..
