What to Expect from the Nokia Lumia 1020

July 11, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

You might have heard about this already, right? If you haven’t as yet, Nokia is expected to unveil its latest camera-centered Windows Phone a while later at an event in New York City.

Even as the world may seem patient to wait for the Nokia Lumia 1020 to appear on the shelves, a part of the tech populace isn’t willing to sit idle. Yeah, you got it right – the rumormongers. They have not rested and are not prepared to too, and continue to churn out juicy details of this Nokia handset.

Key features of this device, according to them, are the 41-megapixel camera sensor and the Pure View technology that the maker has injected in.


Okay, so now for a few details. Codenamed the Lumia EOS, the device is officially called the Nokia Lumia 1020. Joe Belffiore, corporate vice president at Microsoft for Windows Phone has himself claimed that the device has been dubbed Nokia Lumia 1020, on his Flicker account.

This upcoming Nokia’s PureView Windows Phone, has been subjected to several image leaks in recent months.

Folks at the WP Central report that the Nokia Lumia 1020’s camera sensor is front and center. They also sate that the snapper comes with both a Xenon and LED flash, along with optical image stabilization (OIS) that you can seen in the Lumia 920 handset. In case you didn’t know, it helps produce sharper images in low light.

We hear the phone has different names like Elvis, EOS and Nokia 909  and will be available in three different color options like yellow, white and black.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is said to be capable of taking images in both 32-megapixel and 5-megapixel with an aspect ratio of 16×9. It can also take pictures at 38-megapixel with a ratio of 4:3.

As in the case of the previous Nokia 808 PureView Symbian handset, the Lumia 1020 can also shoot at multiple resolutions and saves images at more manageable lower resolutions.

Recently @evleaks had posted an image of the Lumia 1020 that shows the front of the device. From the image, the device looked similar to a typical Lumia handset with Windows Phone 8. On closer look, the device appeared to be running Nokia’s Amber Windows Phone skin.

It would also come with the Nokia Pro Camera app that lets you control every camera setting manually. The images also show AT&T logo, suggesting that this handset will be coming via AT&T carrier.

The rest of the spec list is also promising. The device is said to have 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon from Qualcomm and 2GB of RAM.

It will sport a 4.5-inch, 768×1280 pixel OLED display with ClearBlack and PureMotion HD+. Other specs include 32GB internal storage and a 1,020 mAh battery.

According to Russian site Izvestia, the device will include a slot to insert a tripod mount and a shutter button. If the WP Central reports are true, then the off-contract pricing of the device is fixed at $602 and AT&T will start selling the handset by the end of this month.
