Nokia Lumia 1020 specs
Nokia Lumia 1020 is already called Nokia with 41 million of pixels. Several days ago this long waiting smartphone has been officially presented at the big event organized by Nokia in New York. This camera-phone is coming as the successor of PureView 808 a Symbian model that had build the base for creating the device like this one. As it was expected, Nokia Lumia 1020 will be operating on Windows Phone 8 platform and it is coming to us with the best camera ever seen on one smartphone. That’s why this is sometimes a camera and sometimes a phone.
Nokia Lumia 1020 camera
It’s logical to start with a camera, since it’s a heart of this phone. From the first beginning of the stories of Nokia Lumia 1020, the camera was the part of the machine that collected the attention. Everybody is talking about 41MP from Nokia Lumia 1020.
Why is like that? It’s easy to say because of 41MP. But that’s not all. This impressive f/2.2 camera with dual Xenon flash makes miracles. With inevitable Carl Zeiss optics with 6 lenses definitely sets the standards when cameras on the smartphones are about. That’s why this is the best thing about this phone, and definitely the best advantage in comparison with so called “high-end” smartphones. That’s not all. This camera owns optical stabilization and it can make photos of 38MP on 4:3 and 16:9. At the same time, created photos looks just amazing, even when they are converted to 5MP, which are, by the way, more practical to be shared.
But, this 41 million camera isn’t just good for photos, already for full HD video. And if we know that you can use 4x zoom, and 6x on the 720p quality, you can be very sure your video material will be good as the cold beer on the seaside.
Of course, the Finish manufacturer had putted adequate software here, in order to control this massive camera. It’s a word about Pro Camera app, which automatically adjusts flash (or you can do the same by your way). The same thing is about the light. There is sensor (automatically of course), as also as ISO, white balance, shooter button and exposition. Pro Camera can also be used to crop and edit pictures. Huh… that’s not all. If you have 70$ extra, you can buy Camera Grip extra gear, which is consisting of cartridge with the extra battery, special shooter button and even the stand of the camera.
That’s all for this camera, but there is another one on Nokia Lumia 1020. It is placed on the front side of the phone and it has 1.2MP. But don’t be foolish by that amount of MP, because it can makes HD video!

Nokia Lumia 1020 isn’t just a camera. If that isn’t so, this device would have different shapes and design certainly. Nokia Lumia 1020 isn’t just a story of how it is to be a camera. That’s why this phone has almost identical specs like Lumia 920 and Lumia 925. That’s means that this LTE phone has 4.5-inch AMOLED PureMotion HD screen with 1280×768 pixels. Speaking about the screen, it is interesting and, of course very good, that this great screen “receive” touches even from gloved hands. Gorilla Glass 3 protections is here also. Under the hood dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with 1.5 GHz found it place. Nokia Lumia 1020 doesn’t support microSD card, but we are aware that 32GB of internal storage is sufficient.
