Nokia has been rumored to be working on a Windows Phone 8 device with a built-in supercamera feature. That phone is the Lumia 1020 and as the rumored launch date approaches, more details of the phone are being leaked online. The newest set of leaks came from Windows Central and if the specs the site revealed turn out to be true, we’ll have one beast of a Lumia device in our hands.
For starters the Nokia Lumia 1020 is rumored to have a 41-megapixel rear camera. That should be enough to elicit an “ooooh” from a crowd. The camera’s a F2.2 aperture will be accompanied by a Xenon and LED flash so dark shots will probably be a thing of the mobile camera phone past. There’s a Pro Camera app that takes care of your photography needs. The app has advanced photo settings to users in “live mode” which is rumored to control ISO, white balance, manual focus, shutter speed and flash.
Here are the main hardware specs of the Nokia Lumia 1020, most of which are photography-related:
- Optical image stabilization (OIS)
- Takes the image in a 32MP and 5MP at the same time in 16:9
- The 5MP image is over sampled dropping 7pixels into one “super pixel”
- Shoots 38MP in 4:3
- 2GB of RAM
- 32GB of internal storage, no microSD expansion
- WP8 V 8.0.10322.71
- FM radio, Flip to silence
- Optional wireless charging backplate
The rumored price of the Nokia Lumia 1020 is $602 and it will be available in yellow, white and black colors. It will be released this July.
