New renders show clear images of the Nokia Lumia 1020

New renders show clear images of the Nokia Lumia 1020
As soon as the Nokia 808 PureView  was launched last year, powered by Symbian, the cry immediately went up for a Windows Phone version of the phone. For nearly a year, rumors of such a device circulated until we finally reached the point that we are at now,  just a matter of days away from the launch 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.

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

Phamera War never started. Nokia is the king right from the PureView 808.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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

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? ®

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.

Killer photography on a mobile device. One of a kind; excluding the 808, also made by Nokia!

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

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. Yellow, definitely.

I'm hoping for August personally.., jeez my wife is going to be pissed... Just got an N4 and now this... Still need to sell my l920 lol buy now and ask for forgiveness later
