Not that we’re surprised after AT&T’s leak on YouTube earlier today, but we had a sneaking suspicion something like this might be happening — but we wanted to see it in person, just to make sure.
Meet the Nokia Lumia 1020, complete with all 41 million of those reasons we’ve been hearing about for a while now. That, naturally, is a not so subtle reference to the second-gen PureView 41-megapixel sensor, packed with what the company’s calling the “largest back side illuminated sensor available on a smartphone.” And on the front, you’ll find a 4.5-inch 1,280 x 768 pixels (at a 16:9 aspect ratio) AMOLED PureMotion HD+ display protected by Gorilla Glass 3. And, the company adds, offering super sensitive touch, even when the user’s got a pair of gloves on.
The image-focused Windows Phone handset also features six-lens Zeiss optics, manual shutter, xenon flash for different light levels and second-gen optical stabilization. On the software side, you’ll get a Nokia Pro Camera app, so you can manually adjust flash, focus, ISO, white balance, shutter speed and exposure — you know, like on a real camera. On the video side of things, you’ll be able to shot 1080p at 30 frames a second with 4x zoom (and 6x in 720p), while the built-in mics promise high quality even in loud settings. Using the app, you can also reframe photos, zoom, change orientation and more. South African or African & Middle East availability have NOT been made public.
A lot of comparison was made between the Lumia 1020, Pureview 808 and the Lumia 920 – but whats the big difference?
