The new Lumia 1020 has been listed on Nokia’s official site with a ‘coming soon’ tag and this makes us hopeful that it will hit the Indian stores shortly. The Finnish handset maker launched the Lumia 1020 last week in New York.
However, the company did not offer any information related to the launch or pricing of the device for markets such as India.
The latest flagship model from Nokia comes equipped with a 4.5-inch display which is almost the same size as the one on the Lumia 920 and Lumia 925. The display boasts of a pixel density of 332 PPI. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM and runs Windows Phone 8. It features a 41-megapixel PureView camera sensor which offers Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), backside-illuminated image sensor, 6 lens optics along with a Xenon Flash. Nokia has also added some camera software including the Nokia Pro Camera app and Smart Camera Mode. It also offers a 1.2-megapixel front facing camera. The phone comes with 32GB internal storage which is non-expandable. The new Lumia 1020 comes in three colour variants- Yellow, White and Black, as per the official site.
Nokia’s Lumia range of smartphones, specially the high-end ones, have not been a major hit in the Indian market and the company is struggling to get back its share in the smartphone segment with its new Lumia phones.
The Lumia 1020 is not the first PureView phone from Nokia. The company had launched the 808 PureView phone last year,that featured a 41-megapixel snapper and created a lot of buzz. Next in the list was Lumia 920 with PureView technology that focused on low-light imaging.
