First Lumia 1520 photo samples reveal that the camera on the new Nokia is no wimp

Nokia fans, and Lumia 1020 aficionados in particular, have no doubt come to recognize the name of National Geographic's photographer Stephen Alvarez. The partnership between the handset maker and one of the most recognizable magazines in the world has spitted out some truly amazing photos that really showcase how much of a gap-closer the Nokia Lumia 1020's 41-megapixel camera really is.

In much the same fashion, Nokia has once again partnered with Alvarez, and gave him the opportunity to spend ten days with the new 6-inch Lumia 1520 phablet that Nokia announced just the other day. The Snapdragon 800-touting hardware beast has an admittedly more frugal 20-megapixel f/2.4 camera unit on its back, though that's still mighty impressive by smartphone standards. The shots that Alvarez has managed to produce are, similarly, as impressive. Those were all taken by the camera on the Nokia Lumia 1520, and the Finnish company promises that they haven't been touched in any way.

According to Alvarez, “the image quality is fantastic” and “every bit of the Lumia 1020's”. The photographer seems to dig the big display as well: “It's easier to frame because you can see the image much larger", adding that at the same time, the Lumia 1520 doesn't feel cumbersome. Seeing as the giant 6-inch screen is the cornerstone of the Lumia 1520, we're not at all surprised that the partnership is pushing this very aspect.

But, enough talk. Head straight for the gallery below and see it all for yourself (NOTE: images are pretty, so it will take a while until you load them in their full glory).
