New renders show clear images of the Nokia Lumia 1020
With the launch taking place on Thursday, gone are the portraits taken by Mr. Blurrycam, replaced by`clear and sharp photos as good as those done by any baby photographer inside your local Sears or Walmart store. According to the same source that leaked the press photo of the device, the Nokia Lumia 1020 will have a 41MP camera with the ability to take a 32 MP and a 5MP picture at the same time with an aspect ratio of 16:9, 39MP shots can be taken in 4:3 and it will be the first Windows Phone model to offer 2GB of RAM. The device will have 32GB of native storage with no microSD slot.
Along with the phone comes a new app called Pro Camera which will support the IOS, White Balance and Manual focus. It will allow you to handle changes to the shutter speed, and offer more options for the flash. The phone is expected to be heading to AT&T where it will launch later this month for $99.99 after a signed two-year pact. And that is the whole picture at the moment.

Did anyone notice in the second pic, the reverse image is of the PV808? Definitely NOT the L1020. Unless the pics of the back panel with the circular camera bump are all false.
Hopefully, we aren't having a repeat of the L920 release. :-(

No matter how this will sell, it would be 10x more successful if it ran Android. You just can't deny that.

What do you expect? It's the same thing from last year with upgraded camera and 2 gig's of ram. Pretty sad that the "focus" on these windows phones have now turned towards the camera. The last time I used my Note 2 camera was 2 weeks ago when I took a picture of a Maxipad box. I did not need a 100 megapixel camera to get the job done. And I was not taking pictures of the box in the dark.
Honestly; do people use their camera's more than the core features of the OS?
Should we start calling these WP devices camera phones with smart features instead of Smartphones with camera's? Too much weight is placed on the camera in this instance.

Yo, fanboy: just because you lack creativity and suitable technical skill with a camera doesn't mean the rest of us follow suit. Also, megapixels have nothing to do with low light sensitivity. I suggest that you read up about imaging technology before you make clueless comments about the value of being able to take quality pictures with your smartphone...
Also, I have yet to see any critical features that WP devices are missing compared to their Android or iOS counter-parts. Yes, there is no offical Instagram app, but I could give a flying frack about it. When I can no longer access the net, or check my stock portfolio, then I might consider switching - but only to another carrier. Nokia hardware rocks, and if you don't own it, then you're clueless!

OK, definitely my first choice phone now without a doubt! ;Drools: over the yellow version.

As much as I hate to say it and deny T-Mobile the sale of a 925 and thus showing my continuing support, if this comes out before September, it's the one I'm getting. They should have launched the 928 and 925 about three months earlier, respectively. Six-month exclusivity is too long. Four at most.

Include phonearena in as part of the troll army. I guarantee they'll come out with a photo comparison and declare the Nokia 1020 was rated 4th. Nokia phone camera's have been rated extremely well every where else but on this site. blah blah blah like you said.

So PA has never given any positive comments about the 808?
And to be quite honest, the iPhone 5 has a better camera than the Lumia 920. Where the 925 and 928 shine is in low light photography. But nonetheless, the new king is being revealed in less than three days.

I've never heard the ip5 having a better camera than the 920. It's good, to be sure, being a Sony unit, but I wouldn't qualify it as better overall. Good in some stuff (certain details, faster focusing, daytime stuff), but not as an all-arounder. Plus it loses points for being an iphone, lol
9. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 949; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
Killer photography on a mobile device. One of a kind; excluding the 808, also made by Nokia!

I'm taking the Yellow one, will look so good against my Cyan Lumia 920, can't wait any longer come one Nokia release it as fast as you can, i want to take picture's !

2 gigs of ram?

It looks great...just like I wanted...akin to 920 but with a different back which screams "I'm the best!"

To play 3D games and high end games. O wait have to wait another 7 months for these games
But Wp8 has hardly any Apps and games?
I thought Wp, Nokia fans don't need 1Gb Ram?
49. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
where did I write I needed that?
If your phone activity is limited to games, you´ve got dull and unispired life. I don´t play games. I don´t like them. Are you 14? I travel a lot. Good gps is a must. I take photos very often but I don´t carry a stand alone camera all the time.
Whats more, you wouldn´t be able to tell the difference between pro camera and PureView without further examination.

I think might sell my Lumia 920 and get this

And that lies the problem with your comment. Even if Nokia "whops" the S4 Zoom it still hasn't beat the entire Samsung lineup let alone the entire Android army. I'm confused; is the focus on making the best camera or the best smartphone? For me Nokia/Microsoft are putting to much emphasis on the camera and their leaving everything else alone. I only take pictures occasionally of things I need to remember. I want a smartphone first then a camera; not a camera then smartphone. You can have both but Windows Phone in itself is not there yet.

To me, the focus on the cameras put on the respective smartphones are becoming the focus, because of all of the apps that have been released, and how the camera is decent enough for most people to use as their main camera so its a highly portable camera. Even though WP8 doesn't have an Instagram app yet they are trying to prove that there cameras are superior.
Maybe a different approach is that they wanted a feature that hadn't been successfully implemented into a smartphone therefore it would be more brand recognition to have a feature that was 'perfected' in the eyes of MS

Yeah..... Finally... Will have to get it when it comes in India... But i guess it will take time to reach here again...

NOKIA Should've went to the 16GB + SD slot route rather than just sticking to 32GB native storage....With all those humongous jPeg files i don't think 32 gigs will ever be enough.
41. applesauce (banned) (Posts: 165; Member since: 26 Aug 2012)
They're actually not all that big; the ones kicking around from Joe Belfiore's Flickr from Monday are relatively small, just a few megabytes, even at full resolution. PureView magic :)
That said, I also wouldn't mind more storage. Memory isn't all that expensive, and the design wouldn't be hurting with a MicroSD slot - it already has a SIM slot, after all!

I like how the flash and the lens are positioned on the first one. They might solve the usual red eye effect on mobile phone cameras due to the flash situated just straight above the lens. It makes perfect sense to position the flash on the upper left/right side of the lens to at least reduce chances of red eye and white eye effect when using the flash.
Still, I hope the xenon flash module on this one is as powerful as Nokia 808 Pureview and not the same one found on the Nokia N8 as the N8 got a smaller Xenon flash capacitor than the 808 and N82.
Okay, enough with the leaks and please come sooner July 11th!

If this phone could hit the market around the globe in a timely fashion without suply issues (asking for Instagram would be too much?), would be quite a boost for WP.

Phamera War never started. Nokia is the king right from the PureView 808.
38. ajonly (Posts: 15; Member since: 25 May 2013)
i think its another fake/prototype photo. in the back its still written "carl Zeiss". it should be just "ZEISS".
44. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
it´s both ways and it´s just a render
it was written a few days back why they´re using both names.

Why call it smartphone with camera, just call it smartest.
You don't/can't call a phone smart unless it has a camera.
