Liveblog: Nokia annoucnes its 41MP Lumia smartphone
We've waited patiently enough, and now it's finally time to welcome the 41-megapixel Lumia smartphone, the so-called Nokia Lumia 1020! Ever since the introduction of the Nokia 808 PureView at MWC 2012, people have been asking when they will be able to get that innovative camera technology in the far more contemporary package of a Windows Phone device. We'll finally be able to answer this today, as Nokia is expected to unveil the PureView-powered Lumia 1020, hopefully along with a release date.

If you've been looking forward to seeing the Lumia 1020 (aka EOS) announced, you'll surely be glad to know that we'll have an almost fatal dose of coverage as the event unfolds later today. In addition to our first impressions from the 1020, the specs comparisons and so on, you'll also be able to follow the announcement event itself via the liveblog the you can find below, so that you can get the details as they come.

Be sure to return to this post for the start of the presentation, which should begin at about: 11AM ET | 10AM CT | 9AM MT | 8AM PT | 3PM GMT | 5PM CET

and a 2012 camera that is unmatched by other smartphones, why not? It is not a 2012 camera when it has 6 lenses (VS 5 on the 808) and OIS built in (absent in the 808). Only the sensor is from the 808 PureView, the rest are not. And, i dont understand the craze over pure hardware and number of cores, even Blackberry and iPhone runs well with duo core. I kinda wish Nokia takes the N8's 12MP cam and put inside their midrange devices, or non-PureView flagships. More cost effective to recycle the same parts and yet have an above average camera in a phone. Im sure they can get rid of the hump unlike in the N8 (which is because the phone itself is small).

Still owns all the other smartphones. Specs? They depend on the OS, because really, only Android needs quad-cores. Yet people keep complaining how non-Androids have 'low-end' or outdated specs. So, the only differentiating factor (aside from OS) is therefore the camera. This phone is a monster.

Nokia, stop using outdated S4 Plus SoC. It's the time for a Quad core WP, besides S4 plus only support up to 20MP camera resolution. The only SoC I know that support camera resolution as high as 41MP is SD800.

Even Nokia wishes to use Quad / Octa core. Its the MS which pulls the nokia, I guess.
