Nokia Lumia 1020: 41 million reasons to stay tuned for our coverage
The day is going to be filled with excitement for anyone who is into geeky gadgets. That's because in just a few hours, the newest camera-centric smartphone from Nokia will be announced. Whether it will be called the Nokia Lumia 1020, the Nokia Lumia 909, or something different isn't yet clear. What' we're pretty sure about, on the other hand, is that it will adopt the Nokia 808's gigantic, 41-megapixel camera sensor, thanks to which Nokia's newest high-end handset would most likely rank among the best cameraphones in existence.

So yeah, that's definitely a pretty solid reason to stay tuned for our extensive coverage focused on the Nokia Lumia 1020 announcement. We'll be bringing you the goods as the event unfolds - join us today, July 11th, at 11:00am ET/8:00am PT/4:00pm BST. Until then, you can examine the list of what Nokia Lumia 1020 will offer in terms of specs, according to rumors.

It's okay I'm confident. Nokia 1020 may be better in day light but Honami will be better in low light. Some parts eos wins and in some parts honami wins.

Well do u know that EOS has been fitted with OIS to take great low-light images?

and guess what? Honami will use the same sensor that sony rx100 II uses and it's a beast in lowlight

I have the RX100 and it's surprisingly good in low light (and mostly everything). Far from the smartphones i have seen. (I haven't seen the Nokia 808). My plan was/is to get the Note 3 but with this Nokia 1020 and perhaps a good Sony cameraphone my simple plan get's more complicated. Well, choice is good. Glad they are pushing eachother forward ;-)

if you decided to meet halfway because your arguments were too weak or you didn´t have them at all, and you didn´t because their no official spec for honami, means you´re insecure in your opinions and know a jack squat.

honami will probably look sexier basing on xperia z (i can make love to it lol) and running android. if nokia was running android, i'll be worrying for sony, but not at the moment lol

Well, SOME OF YOU are pretty floppy! You talk about how WP needs to have 1080p resolution , how it should have the latest SoC...BUT you waive off the phone with the 41 megapixel sensor...i mean, what's the point? If Android had it, you won't be complaining. Just because it comes on WP, doesn't mean it's less capable or useless or a gimmick! We'll just have to wait and see what the world has to say.

"Nokia's newest high-end handset would most likely rank among the best cameraphones in existence." If the 1020 is only ranked "among" the best cameraphones then I will be massively surprised and disappointed. It will be ranked ad THE best cameraphone, bar none!!!

I really dont see what the hype is all about with this device. Yes, it has a very high end camera. But other than that, its just another windows phone to me. The same device repeated over and over. Other than changing the colour and size of the live tiles, there not much in the way of customization. When Nokia falls off the Windows bandwagon, i might have better respect for new device they bring out

It is not the same device. "Another WP device" will be the end to all the "cameraphones" in the market. Hide your Honamis and your Zooms/NX/Whatever

Those who'll be buying this probably own a full frame dslr or a micro 4/3rds with plenty of lenses to spare, Really wondering at what rate they'd use the camera function on a daily basis, maybe a few hundred clicks during the first week, then soon they'll ask themselves.."Wait...I'm not satisfied, time to grab my DSLR and get back to taking real photos" I really don't understand the ''awe'' in them with this phone ... when it's just a P&S and a sheety Windows phone hybrid

You know, those who will buy this are the ones who DON'T own a pro camera. Why would you get this monster (of course when you put it with other phones) if you have a better one. lol People want pristine images and reliable hardware, Samsung isn't providing either right now honestly. Also, nobody wants to bring a full on DLSR for casual events with friends, they'd rather get a smartphone with a good cam.

''they'd rather get a smartphone with a good cam'' Never seen One... really, believing the hype is one thing though...lol
