New York - Nokia is selling a new Windows phone that emphasises video recording.

The new Lumia Icon sports four microphones, compared with the one or two typically found in smartphones.

The two on the front are activated when making phone calls, while the two on the rear are used when taking video - to better capture sound coming from the subjects.

The Icon takes video in 1080p high-definition resolution as well as still images of up to 19 megapixels.

The phone will be available starting on 20 February through Verizon Wireless for $200 with a two-year service contract, or $550 without.

The Icon is similar to Nokia's Lumia 1520, except its screen measures just 12.7cm diagonally, compared with 15.24cm on the 1520.
