Nokia 820 and 920 rumours

With the launch of the next Nokia Windows Phone range coming on Wednesday a twitter account called @evleaks has been tweeting photos about what the smartphones could look like (left).
What we officially know about the next Nokia's is absolutely nothing. Only rumours have been discovered so far.
According to some sources they will be called the Nokia Lumia 820 and the Nokia Lumia 920 (Pureview?). The Lumia 920 might have 21MP camera making it what Nokia call 'Pureview' however we have no clue if that is true or not.
The Lumia 820 is estimated to have a 4.3-inch touch-screen and the slightly larger Lumia 920 is estimated to have a 4.5 inch screen.
Both of these phones apparently come in a verity of colours.

The picture that sparked the rumours
about a wireless charging pad
There are some rumours of accessories that come with the Lumia Brothers, such as a wireless charger, (which would be amazing if confirmed true) . Technology like this has been tried before however it has been proved to be very expensive and not very reliable. If Nokia pulls this off they might be doing something that will have a massive impact on the smartphone market.
If I'm being a bit bland with this, a wireless charger means that you just place your Nokia Lumia on a pad (you don't need to lock it in or anything) and then it starts charging as long as it's in contact with the pad.

We will find out if these rumours contain any truth or not on Wednesday 5th September in New York when Nokia is planning to announce it's Windows Phone 8 range.
