Nokia of 41 million pixels has arrived. The Nokia Lumia 1020 was unveiled at a big event in New York. This successor to the PureView 808 model and perhaps the latest outgrowth of this phone family is expected to come with the Windows Phone 8 platform and the best camera ever seen on a single smartphone. Many will say that Nokia has introduced a new camera, but this is still a phone, or at least a camera phone.
Nokia Lumia 1020 camera
From the moment the phone was officially unveiled, and here it is until a few days after that, there is no stop talking about how good the camera of the Nokia Lumia 1020 smartphone really is. Ok, a lot has already been written about her, but now that her abilities have received official confirmation, things have reached a culmination.
This impressive f / 2.2 camera with the inescapable Carl Zeiss optics with 6 lenses and a double caisson flash definitely sets the standards, when it comes to one camera on a smartphone. Some other phones may have far better features than the Nokia Lumia 1020, but no one can get a trump card out of the Finnish fan – the best photos he takes! With its 41MP downloaded from Symbian PureView aces, things seem to have fallen into place.
The camera has optical stabilization and is able to take 38MP photos at 4:3 and 16:9. At the same time, the photos are incredibly high resolution, and the 5MP ones seem like perfection, and due to their smaller size, they are very easy to share.
That the Nokia Lumia 1020 doesn’t just take good photos is evidenced by the 1080p video that this phone makes with ease. The video option is accompanied by a 4x or up to 6x zoom at 720p quality.
It would be a real shame, and probably completely impractical if Nokia did not accompany such a camera with the appropriate software. The Nokia Lumia 1020 and its camera work with the help of the Pro Camera application, which uses all the benefits of a flash that is automatically regulated with the help of a light sensor, or its adjustment is done manually, depending on the user’s wishes.
The same story is with focus, ISO, white balance, shutter speed, and exposure. At the same time, this application has options for editing and cropping photos. For those who would like to make the Nokia Lumia 1020 a real camera, there are Camera Grip accessories as an option, which consists of a cartridge with an extra battery, then a recording button, and even a camera stand, ie. phone.
As for the camera on the Nokia Lumia 1020 smartphone, that’s not all, because on the front of the device there is an auxiliary camera of 1.2 MP intended for video calls and HD video recording.
Nokia Lumia 1020 specification
The latest a la Nokia phone has its other sides. It of course performs functions like other smartphones, all thanks to a specification that is almost unchanged compared to the Lumia 920 and Lumia 925. This means that this 4G phone runs on 2GB of RAM and a 4.5-inch AMOLED PureMotion HD screen with a resolution of 1280 × 768 pixels, which has already taken its place in the Lumia 925 model.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 runs on a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor at 1.5 GHz. Interestingly, the screen works even when wearing gloves, and there’s Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Nokia has opted for 32 GB of internal memory for this model, along with 7 GB on the SkyDrive cloud. The phone does not have an option for microSD expansion, but we think that 32GB will be quite enough for the vast majority of users.
Nokia Lumia 1020 design and dimensions
Although the camera is the dominant segment of this phone, it is not surprising that almost the entire back of the phone is dedicated to this aspect, the Nokia Lumia 1020 managed to be thinner and lighter than the Lumia 920. Of course, the phone is not as thin as the Lumia 925, but with 10.4 mm thickness and 158 grams weight, it can be said that the Nokia Lumia 1020 phone is worthy of every pocket (not in financial, but in practical terms, not to be confused).
Nokia Lumia 1020 price and sale
The Nokia Lumia 1020 will be sold in America through the operator at a price of as little as $ 299.99 with a two-year contract for some 7-10 days. At the same time, the Nokia Lumia 1020 will be offered in matte black, white and yellow. A little later, Nokia will offer the phone to both the Chinese and European markets.
Nokia Lumia 1020 conclusion
