Nokia announces Lumia 1020 in India

Lumia 1020 – Nokia’s popular camera-smartphone with 41MP camera, has been announced in India but will be available only on October 11. The smartphone has a 4.5-inch AMOLED display and runs on a dual-core Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.5GHz.

Nokia will reveal Lumia 1020’s price only on October 10, a day before it will be available in the Indian market. That’s ok. But this device phone was launched back in July and October 11 is quite far away. Nokia has priced Lumia 1020’s camera-grip accessory at Rs 7,500 and the wireless-charger at Rs 3,200.

Lumia 1020 faces tough competition with Sony’s Xperia Z1, which has got a 20.7MP camera. Nokia could have improved Lumia 1020’s 1.2MP front camera as video-chatting has become more popular among people.

This device runs on Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 OS and is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor. With 32GB internal memory and 2GB RAM, this gizmo has all the features a camera-man needs. 48 percent of GizmoLead.com reader suggested Lumia 1020 as the best camera-smartphone.

Nokia Lumia 1020: Key Specs

  • 41 MP Primary Camera with PureView technology and Optical Image Stabilisation
  • Powered by Windows Phone 8 OS and 2 GB RAM
  • Carl Zeiss Tessar lens
  • 1.2 MP Secondary Camera
  • Wireless Charging
  • Full HD (1080p) Recording
  • 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Dual Core Processor

A little disappointing was the 2000mAh battery. A person with regular camera needs may find this battery insufficient.

Meanwhile, Nokia is planning another event on October 22 and I think that Nokia will introduce new innovated devices. So, if you want to hear more about the Lumia 1020 and its price, stay tuned.
