Nokia has just made the Lumia 1020 official after numerous leaks and rumors. We ended up getting a glimpse of AT&T's self-leak earlier this morning when they accidentally hit the big green button on a promo video, but the carrier made the phone official today, and it's coming later this month on July 26th for $299.
The Lumia 1020 sports a 41-megapixel camera sensor, and Nokia is talking it up big time at the company's event in New York City today. The 1020 builds on the pixel-oversampling technology of the original Nokia 808 PureView, but this new device packs it all into a smaller form factor, as well as squeezes in some other new bells and whistles.
AT&T's landing page for the Lumia 1020 is already live, and while you can't pre-order the device just yet (pre-orders start July 16), you can enter in your email address to get a notification for when you'll be able to reserve your own unit. The phone will come in black, white, and yellow on AT&T.
The Lumia 1020 sports a 4.5-inch AMOLED HD+ display with a resolution of 1280x768, all topped off with a protective layer of Gorilla Glass 3. On the inside, there’s a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5GHz with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. You'll also be treated with a handful of connectivity options, including LTE, WiFi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, and NFC.
However, though, the biggest feature of the 1020 is its impressive camera on the back. 41MP is pretty intense, and the camera on the inside even includes ball bearings in order to cut down on camera shake to avoid blurry photos. It's certainly not anything like most smartphone cameras today, and we'll be getting hands on with the device shortly. Stay tuned!
