Nokia Reveals the Lumia 1020 with 41MP Camera for AT&T
Nokia today announced the Lumia 1020, a Windows Phone 8 smartphone that boasts a 41-megapixel camera sensor. The device carries over features seen on last year's PureView 808, such as second-generation optical image stabilization, Zeiss optics with a 6-lens design, a mechanical shutter, and xenon flash. In addition to the 1020's hardware features, it comes with a revised camera application called Nokia Pro Camera that provides shutterbugs with granular control over every aspect of the camera's behavior. Users can adjust flash, focus, ISO, shutter speed, white balance, and exposure, as well as zoom, straighten horizons, alter orientation, and re-frame images after they are taken. The camera also records 1080p HD video at 30 frames per second with stereo sound that can accommodate loud events, such as concerts. Other features of the Lumia 1020 include a 4.5-inch AMOLED WXGA display with Gorilla Glass 3, 32GB of on-board storage, and access to AT&T Locker, which provides an additional 50GB of online storage for free. The device will be sold by AT&T beginning July 26 for $299.99. Preorders begin July 16. It comes in black, white, and yellow.
