Nokia yesterday lifted the lid on their long-awaited Lumia 1020 smartphone, the company’s first Windows Phone 8 device to take its cues from Nokia’s groundbreaking PureView camera tech, packing in a 41MP sensor. And now the Finnish smartphone manufacturer has revealed a host of sample shots taken with the snapper to show off just how good it is.
While the rest of the phone’s specs (including a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor, 2GB of RAM 32GB of storage – not including 7GB of free Skydrive storage – and a 4.5-inch 1280 x 768 resolution AMOLED screen), aren’t to be sniffed at, the camera is the true crowning piece.
A spiritual successor to the PureView 808, it has impressive f/2.2 camera with Carl Zeiss lens and Xenon flash includes a dedicated shutter button, as well as a “Pro camera interface” that offers a full raft of manual controls including precise manual focus.
