Nokia Unveils Lumia 1020, Comes with Second-Gen 41-Megapixel PureView Camera

 

Building on the camera technologies introduced in the 808 PureView and Lumia 920, Nokia unveiled its latest camera phone, the Lumia 1020 which comes with the second generation 41-megapixel camera sensor.

The 41-megapixel camera sensor in the Lumia 1020 features ZEISS optics (formerly known as Carl Zeiss) with six physical lenses, optical image stabilization (OIS) and a Xenon flash. The rear camera can take still images at 38-megapixel in 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios.

Sporting a new feature called Dual Capture, the Lumia 1020 is able to simultaneously take a 38-megapixel image for editing and a 5-megapixel image for sharing on social networking sites.

Augmenting the hardware technology is a new app called Nokia Pro Camera, which makes it easy for anyone to take great pictures. The Pro Camera app comes with an easy-to-understand interface that visually demonstrates how different camera settings (e.g ISO, focus, white balance, shutter speed and exposure) will affect the final photo or video. 

Aside from the innovations in camera technologies, the Lumia 1020 is equipped with a 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ AMOLED display (1280 x 768 pixels), Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. Other specs include a non-removable 2,000mAh battery, Bluetooth 3.0, 4G LTE, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, A-GPS with GLONASS.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 will be available in three colors: yellow, white and black. It will be exclusive to U.S carrier AT&T, with sales expecting to begin on 26 July at US$299.99 with a two-year contract. Nokia states that the device will be arriving in China and Western Europe within this quarter. Availability in other markets will be announced shortly.
