Nokia Lumia 1020 now official, packed with 41MP OIS camera

It seem like Nokia is getting serious now in packing serious camera features in their window phone! Nokia Lumia 1020 manage to grab on all camera spec that Nokia Pureview 808 has.

Nokia Lumia 1020 Key Specification :
  • 4.5" Clear Black AMOLED display with 1280 x 768 resolution and Nokia's PureMotion HD+, Super Sensitive Touch
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 chipset Krait CPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32GB Internal memory
  • 41MP back facing camera with 1080p video resolution
  • 1.2MP front facing camera
  • NFC
  • LTE
  • 2000mAh
  • Window Phone 8

The Nokia Lumia 1020 will be available in yellow, white and black. Price and availability still unknown.

My Opinion : Honestly nothing interesting in Nokia Lumia 1020 except the camera. Same spec seem in Nokia Lumia 925. SO let's focus the camera k? Since it is the main selling point. We know that once Nokia goes serious, their camera is really a beast! The camera is packed with 1/1.2 inch BSI sensor (same with Pureview 808) and 6 element lens ZEISS optics. The 41MP image sensor can snap both 40MP and 5MP photos at the same time where one straight off the sensor and one after Nokia's Super sampling has been applied. The Pureview 808 can only shoot one or the other at a time. Nokia also packed the Lumia 1020 with its Pro Camera and Smart Camera camera lens apps. They'll allow advanced users fiddle with the camera settings aka manual setting! Like finally a phone with manual setting for the camera! Seriously, I am really impressed with Nokia camera until today. None of any smartphone at market now can come close with Nokia N8 and also Nokia Pureview 808. Of course, rumors coming Sony Xperia Honami will be packed with awesome camera too. We will wait until IFA event on 4th september for Sony announcement.
