Ah! The Nokia Lumia 1020 which was until now rumoured to launch with a 41 megapixel sensor, after zillion of leaks has finally gone officially and the smartphone is here to impress us all with its imaging capability. First, we will have a run down on the hardware specifications of the Nokia Lumia 1020. First, the smartphone packs a 4.5 inch PureMotion HD+ display with ClearBlack filter and Gorilla Glass 3 and a screen resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels. Nokia-Lumia-1020 The Nokia Lumia 1020 runs on Windows Phone 8 OS and will be available in black, white and yellow while it measures 130.4 x 71.4 x 10.4 mm and weighs about 158 g which goes on to makes it a bit thinner and lighter than the Lumia 920 because Nokia eliminated the wireless charging ability but it can be added via a separate cover if you wish. It is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor coupled with 2 GB of RAM which is double than the earlier WP flagship and carries 32 GB of internal storage. According to Nokia, the 2000 mAh battery will be good for seven hours of video playback and 13 hours of talk time. Nokia-Lumia-1020-with-Nokia-Pro-Camera Coming to the camera of the Nokia Lumia 1020, the 41 megapixel back side illuminated 1/1.2″ sensor is the largest on any consumer device according to Nokia and has 3x loseless zoom and will go on to offer up to 6x zoom for HD Video. The 6-lens Zeiss optics arrives with second generation OIS which will let users capture some great shake-free videos and brilliant low-light images. When a user captures an image, the famous oversampling combines up to 7 megapixel in one ‘super pixel’ on the 5 megapixel PureView mode which will be saved for sharing but users can also shoot images at 34 megapixel or 38 megapixel simultaneously. Next is the Nokia Pro Camera on the Nokia Lumia 1020 which will give users more control over the image they take as the application will let them choose from various pro shooting modes and controls like manual ISO, shutter speed, long exposure and more. Also now you can zoom in on different parts of the photo ‘after’ the shot is taken which is really cool. All of this is complimented with a XENON flash for the images and an LED light which will help in capturing the video. The Nokia Lumia 1020 records HD video in 1080p at 30 frames per second and lets you zoom in up to four times closer to the action with no loss of quality (up to 6x closer in HD 720p). It also has a technology called Nokia Rich Recording, which handles sound pressure levels six times louder than conventional smartphone microphones. The upshot? Movies that will look and sound amazing on a home theater system. Nokia also announced the Nokia Camera Grip, priced at $79 which features an ergonomic bumped out grip on the side like DSLRs have, a universal tripod mount, and extra battery power to keep the device running. Nokia-Lumia-1020-with-Camera-Grip The Nokia Lumia 1020 will ship first to the USA on AT&T, with sales expected to start on July 26th at $299.99 with a contract. It will arrive in China and Western Europe in the third quarter of 2013. Nokia plans to ship an exclusive variant of the device with Telefonica in selected European and Latin American markets.
