Under the hood, the LTE-equipped Lumia Icon rocks a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (2.2 GHz) chip along with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard memory, and 7GB of free cloud storage. (It lacks a microSD card slot for additional storage, though.)
Nokia is high on the Lumia Icon’s video and audio capabilities, and to that end the phone has a high-resolution display, Dolby Headphone signal processing technology, onboard EQ, and four microphones for better sound capture and noise cancelation.
The Lumia Icon has a volume rocker, the power/lock key, and a dedicated camera key on its right side, and the 3.5mm audio jack is on top. There’s of course a microUSB port on the bottom for the charging / sync cable, although the phone does come packing Qi wireless charging support as well.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg in terms of software, which we’ll explore next.
