Nokia Lumia 1020 is in all readiness for pre-order for Rs. 49,999. The flagship cameraphone from Nokia is available on Nokia online store. The release date of the phone is stated to be the third week of this month.
Nokia is going full strength on promoting the phone and are offering a stereo headphone – WH-530, worth Rs. 2,999 on each pre-order of the phone.
The Lumia 1020 was unveiled officially last week in Delhi at an event. But the company did not reveal the price of the phone during the launch. The phone was earlier to be announced on October 10, which was one day before the official release of the device in India.
However, it now looks like the information was entirely wrong and so was the pricing and the availability. Now, both the price tag and the (tentative) release date are announced.
A 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor powers the phone that has pixel density of 332ppi. The Windows Phone 8 has 2GB of RAM. The most prominent feature of the phone happens to be the 41MP PureView camera. The camera comes with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) feature, Xenon Flash along with 6 lens optics.
There is also the Nokia Pro Camera app software with Smart Camera Mode. The Lumia 1020 also has a front camera with 1.2MP, which looks pretty low compared to the rear camera. The phone has 32GB of memory and is non-expandable.
As far as the Nokia Lumia 1020 is concerned, it’s not the earliest PureView Smartphone from the Finnish company. Earlier there were 808 PureView that was released in 2012, which was followed by Lumia 920, also with PureView technology.
