Today Nokia established a new benchmark in smartphone imaging with the arrival of the Nokia Lumia 1020, boasting a second generation 41 megapixel sensor. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is coming First to AT&T on the 26th July for $299.99 on a two year contract, with pre-orders starting 16th July. There is a rumour of O2 in the UK getting a 64gb version as a Exclusive, with Three announces that the Nokia Lumia 1020 will be available later this year on its Ultrafast network. Already covering 80 per cent of the UK population, Three’s Ultrafast network is supported by DC-HSDPA technology, with 4G due later this year.

Sylvia Chind, Head of Devices at Three said, “Boasting one of the best camera experiences we’ve ever seen, Nokia Lumia 1020 is a feat of smartphone engineering. Coupled with Three’s all-you-can-eat data, our customers can make the most of their snaps, sharing them quickly over Three’s Ultrafast network, without the fear of being stung by out-of-bundle data charges.”

Unlike any smartphone in the market today the Nokia Lumia 1020 reinvents zoom, enabling people to discover more detail than the eye can see. With Nokia’s innovative PureView technology, including optical image stabilization, the device is able to produce some of the sharpest images possible by any digital camera.

This is made possible by leading hardware technology combined with a new application called Nokia Pro Camera, which makes it easy for anyone to take professional quality images. Either before a picture is taken or after it has been shot, the zoom capability enables people to discover and then rediscover the personal stories each image can tell. With a beautiful interface that visually demonstrates how settings will affect the final photo or video, Nokia Pro Camera makes it easier than ever to capture, edit and share photos and videos with unrivaled clarity.

Using a new feature called dual capture, the Nokia Lumia 1020 simultaneously takes a high resolution 38 megapixel image for endless editing opportunities, and creates a 5 megapixel picture that is easy to share to social networks with Windows Phone 8.

The Nokia Lumia 1020’s 41 megapixel sensor features leading ZEISS optics with six physical lenses, plus optical image stabilization, delivering crystal clear pictures even in low light conditions. It also captures blur free videos with stereo sound even at the loudest concerts thanks to Nokia Rich Recording, which handles sound pressure levels six times louder than conventional smartphone microphones.

“We want to take people on a journey from capturing pictures to recording and sharing their lives,” said Stephen Elop, President and CEO, Nokia. “The Nokia Lumia 1020 will bring new meaning to pictures and continues to strengthen Nokia’s leadership in imaging.”
