Purported Nokia Lumia 1020 specs sheet leaks: 3x zoom, OIS, six-lens optics, stereo sound recording

Apparently the 41 MP sensor we all know and love from the Nokia 808 PureView will be present indeed, as well as the lossless zoom concept, up to 3x. What we find mindboggling is that Nokia has allegedly managed to cram a full optical image stabilization (OIS) mechanism around the gigantic sensor, just as rumored, merging PureView Phase 1 & 2...

Hilarious comment

Can a tiny sensor like that provide enough OOF isolation?
Is the lens fast enough to stop motion under poor lighting contitions?

I guess you were still a baby when the 925 came out with a Xenon flash.
Sample pictures showed the stop motion capture of the ceiling fan in motion. Go back again...

alterecho has done a better job but check this one out too while you're at it. And yeah, sorry it's the 928 not 925.

Apparently, he hasn't. Also its the 928 is the one that has Xenon flash, not the 925, but the 808 Pureview has a better Xenon flash:

@FlushGordon
Feast your eyes:

The top one is 920, second - 928, third - the 808 Pureview.
Its from the link i posted above.
Just in case you are wondering, that fan was running at full in all the three shots.

Please do some research. If you are a decent photogrpaher with adequate technical knowledge, then a site like DPReview.com should help clarify your apparent knowledge gaps. See the Nokia 808 PureView review on that site.

It's not just the fact that it has a Xenon flash. Both the HTC Mozart, and to a lesser extent, the Lumia 928, have Xenon flashes that barely qualify for the title. The Nokia N8 and 808 PureView both have adequately specificed Xenons. In particular, the 808 has a massive Xenon for a smartphone, with dual capacitors.

A good Xenon flash needs decent internal specifications as well as software (drivers, etc.) to deliver a solid performance of every day users. Both the 808 and the N8 have this capability. The Lumia 1020, like its 808 PureView predecessor, is also part of this small group of smartphone devices with capable Xenon flashes.

Phones have become the new PC - they are obsolete 3 to 6 months after introduction. Expect the L1020 to be obsolete in probably 6 months. For now, the L1020 seems to have set the bar for everyone else who is offering a camera in a high end smartphone.

first let them reach to the quality of 808 then L1020.

And don't tell me "S4 Zoom" because here the discussion about smart-camera phone not a Camera with calling feature

Totally, right? I mean, everyone in my country has a 41mp phone that has sensor TWICE the size of a point and shoot camera and yet Nokia won't stop building hype for this s**tty device.
