Nokia Lumia 1020 finally official: 41 megapixels, one carrier, $300

Nokia Lumia 1020 Release Date

Though there wasn’t much mystery left after months of steady leaks, Nokia on Thursday finally took the wraps off of its new Lumia 1020 smartphone during a press conference in New York City. The new handset features a 4.5-inch AMOLED display, a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 32GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM and the Windows Phone 8 operating system, but the star of the show was clearly the 41-megapixel PureView camera. Nokia’s industry leading camera includes Carl Zeiss optics, optical image stabilization, a xenon flash for photos and an LED flash for video, Nokia Rich Recording, full HD 1080p video capture support and a backside-illuminated sensor. It also features new Nokia Pro Camera and Smart Camera modes that bring all new software features to Nokia’s Lumia line. The Lumia 1020 will be an AT&T exclusive in the U.S. and it will launch on July 26th for $299.99 on contract. Additional images of the Lumia 1020 follow below.
