Nokia Finally Announces the Lumia 1020

Nokia Lumia 1020Nokia has finally announced the Lumia 1020, which combines the OIS (optical image stabilization) feature of Lumia 920 with the 41Mp camera sensor of the Nokia 808 PureView. In essence, two Nokia’s earlier phone models merge in one with the Windows Phone 8 OS to boot.

The Lumia 1020 sports a 4.5” display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, ClearBlack technology and PureMotion HD+ AMOLED panel. It uses 720p resolution, which is generally adequate for a display smaller than 4.7”. There’s a built-in high-brightness mode that can reach 600 nits, ensuring good visibility under direct sunlight.

The phone’s main feature; the 41Mp camera, uses 2nd generation OIS, ZEISS optics with six-element lens, 3 x lossless zoom and BSI 1/1.2” sensor. Users can also take advantage of a dedicated photography-oriented app, the Nokia Pro Camera, which includes adjustments for exposure, manual focus, ISO, shutter times, professional shooting modes and many others. In the United States, the phone will initially arrive to AT&T for £193 in July 26th with a new 2-year contract agreement.
