Nokia Lumia 1020 test photos and camera options leak hours before official unveiling

Nokia Lumia 1020 test photos and camera options leak hours before official unveiling
With hype reaching critical levels just hours before the official unveiling of Nokia's next cameraphone, we're getting what may very well turn out to be one of the last unconfirmed pieces of intel on the Lumia 1020, also known as the EOS.

@ViziLeaks, one of several sources that first spilled the beans on the 1020, has come for another round of snoops. This time, though, we're getting a peek of how the software behind the behemoth 41-megapixel snapper looks and functions. Dubbed Nokia Pro Cam, the app will feature an option for 'dual-capture', meaning Lumia 1020 owners will have the choice of snapping two photos at once – the source simply calls them 'Pro' and 'Hi-res Pro' and says we should expect a “massive size difference”. Two example shots can be seen in the gallery below, however @ViziLeaks warns that these are taken with a very early version of the phone and the software, so don't jump to any conclusions just yet. 

Finally, we have a peek of what kind of settings we'll be able to mess around with, ranging from shutter speed to manual focus. We'll hold our final verdict for when we actually get our hands on the device, but so far it looks quite promising.

Remember photos are taken with an early Unit so don't jump on any conclusion yet. We'll know in less than 12 hrs.

Well, it is a FACT (not subjective) that those photos aren't that impressive

And it is also a FACT that these are from an old prototype unit, hence making the FACT that these are unimpressive MOOT since the quality from the final device will likely be different.

True that, hopefully the final unit is loads better than this.

That's because the software isn't finalized.

Nope, it will use a duo core snapdragon and combined with a 2nd image processor. The 808 PureView had 2 processors, one dedicated for the camera only.
