New Nokia Lumia 1020 with 41MP camera

NEW YORK: Nokia has unveiled a new Lumia phone with a powerful 41MP camera that promises sharper images, even in low light.

The Nokia Lumia 1020, powered by Windows Phone 8, was introduced on Thursday at an event in New York. The 41MP camera records more detail than other camera phones and even tops point-and-shoot cameras. More pixels mean more sensors for capturing the light that forms an image.

This new smartphone features a technology called Dual Capture, which takes two shots at the same time, one at 38MP resolution and the other at 5MP. The former is meant for photo editing, while the latter is ideal for social media uploads, said Nokia.

The 41MP Zeiss camera has six lenses and features Nokia's PureView imaging technology, along with two types flash - one LED and the other Xenon. In order to provide a better photography experience, the Finnish manufacturer has included the Nokia Pro Camera app and Nokia Rich Recording video capturing technology in this handset.

Other hardware specs of the Lumia 1020 include 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ Amoled display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 2GB RAM, 2,000mAh battery and 32GB internal storage.

The company said the smartphone will arrive in US on July 26 on AT&T, priced at $299. After the US launch, Lumia 1020 will be headed to China and key European markets, Nokia said.

Last year, Nokia released a phone featuring a 41MP camera that runs on the now discontinued Symbian operating system. Samsung last month launched a Galaxy S4 variant that has a 16MP camera with Xenon flash on the back.
