Lumia 920 confirmed to have Mono Rich Recording rather than Stereo like 808 PureView.

Damian Dinning has confirmed that Lumia 920 has got same no. of the Microphones (3) and HAAC (High Amplitude Audio Capture) and hi-fi quality is the same as the 808. This is what Nokia terms as Rich-Recording and due to HAAC this records audio as high as 140 DB while  traditional phone microphones top out at 110 dB. But there is a small catch here !! Rich-recording on Lumia 920 is limited to Mono and is not Stereo like on 808 PureView.

But Damian Dinning again confirms that it still will be better than any of its competitor’s smartphone !! Great to know that Nokia is bringing so many innovations like PureView Camera, PureMotion HD display, Wireless charging and Rich Recording as well on one single phone Lumia 920. Certainly it can lay claim to be the most innovative Smartphone for some time to come 🙂

    FYI: have a look at youtube, comparisons in video (and audio) recording between 808 vs sgs3 etc… 😉

  • got a question

    is it technically possible that mono audio recording is better than sterio, even mono was supported by rich recording cause this looks like the bitter part of lumia 920.but still my choice.

    • Hmm !! Two points to be noted here. First is that even Lumia 920 has got all the hardware for Stereo rich-recording. so may be next software update makes it stereo. Second is even with mono rich-recording it will be far superior than anything else out there.

        actually i dont think we can assess if lumia 920’s audio recording will be better than the rest even if it is mono;i think we should see the item first, but on the other hand i got the’re telling that if the hardware is cool enough than with the 3rd party programs we can record with these programs do you think we can also record in the mp3 format cause lumia 920’s records will be in the amr format ?i hope its no big deal for the software providers to change the record type and format.
