Nokia Lumia 1020 now official: the 41MP Windows Phone

Over at New York, Nokia finally announces their next flagship phone – the Lumia 1020. The ultimate cameraphone reels in a 41 megapixel shooter with tons of hardware & software features, enough processing power with 2GB RAM and the playful & solid, yet familiar design from the Lumia series.

Previously dubbed as the EOS, the Nokia Lumia 1020 packs a 768 x 1280 PureMotion HD+ ClearBlack AMOLED panel, a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU and an improved 2GB RAM. It is all wrapped around a unibody polycarbonate casing with 32GB internal storage, Windows Phone 8 and a non-removable 2,000mAh battery.

But of course, let us not forget one of the main highlights of the phone – the camera. On the hardware side, the 41MP PureView shooter on the back of the phone has an aperture of f/2.2, and it features a mechanical shutter. It packs optical image stabilization, improved low-light performance, oversampling technology (now on video as well) and loseless zoom.

On the software side however, Nokia employs their new app called “Pro Cam”. What it does is it allows you to adjust specific settings to your liking such as ISO, white balance, focus & shutter speed. Features such as long exposure have been demoed on stage and it worked very well. Dual Capture also allows you to take two photos at the same time at different resolutions.

    ang advantage lng na nakikita ko ng s4 zoom dito ay ang pagiging digicam form nya(mas madali hawakan ang ganung form pag kumukuha ng larawan) tska optical zoom.UN LNG

    Eto na talaga ang dream phone ko.
    Ang sarap mag-imagine na gamit gamit ko na to.

    nag pe-pray talaga ako ng husto kay God para makabili ako nito, napakagandang magamit para sa mga AVP namin sa church.

    Tulungan nu akong mag-pray ha. : )

    about sa apps, ok lang sa akin kahit di kasing dami ng apps tulad ng sa android at ios.
    Ewan ko ba, pero may appeal sa akin ang WP na di ko ma-resist, tapos ganda pa ng camera.

    Para sa akin, panalo tlg ang mga Nokia Lumia Series.

    Respeto lang po.wla naman sanang maghurimintado against sa post ko,d ako sanay sa ganong mga reactions.

    God Bless.

    why are you android fanboys bashing nokia for its OS? WP isnt an exclusive OS for nokia. samsung, htc, sony, LG, even motorola made phones with WP as its OS. nokia sticked with WP bcoz android is too generic, and optimization of the phones really do need higher specs to perform fluidly which makes the price higher as well. and little did you know, Symbian OS, nokia’s self made OS the 1st OS to use, make, create and optimize whatever android OS is doing right now, so whatever android is so falsely proud of, Symbian OS already did, and got bored of doing. :D
    im a multi-OS phone user, i use my WP as a primary phone and my LG as a back up phone and i can throw my LG anytime for this badboy of a camphone xD
