After months of widespread rumors and leaks, Finnish handset maker Nokia today officially launches its latest flagship Windows cameraphone, the Lumia 1020, at a press event in New York City.
The headline spec is, of course, the Lumia 1020's 41MP imaging sensor, an iteration of the groundbreaking technology the company debuted last year in the 808 Pure View phone.
For example, My Nokia Lumia 920 takes better pictures in the dark than my Panasonic FZ10 with a F2.8 Leica lens.
Compare them side by side over here: point exactly.
The Lumia 1020 will be available in yellow, back and white color schemes. Devices will be in retail stores on July 26 and you can place a pre-order on the AT&T site beginning July 16.
The new Lumia phones are just very good and there is no app I'm missing.
was hoping for an improvement over the 808 But I was expecting to get the same (just Windows Phone trying to catch up with Symbian)Now it seems we are getting less (smaller sensor)But still a good intermediate release.
And the camera module breaks the sterile and generic design of the Lumia, providing improved handgrip in Elops sweaty, restless sausage fingers.
The benefit here is that you can zoom in and out non-destructively post-capture.
As with the Lumia 925, an optical image stabilization system is present.
