Nokia officially launched the Lumia 1020 with 41 megapixel PureView technology bearing camera and offers lossless zoom for the Windows Phone 8 platform. We take a closer look on how it stands against the Nokia 808 PureView.
Nokia has apparently reinvented zoom with the newest addition to the Lumia family, the Windows Phone 8-powered Lumia 1020, with a 41-megapixel PureView camera. It lets you zoom after the fact and still see ultra high resolution detail and sharpness.
The Nokia X is rumored to come with a 5-megapixel camera, however when it appeared on the CamSpeed database, the detected camera was 3MP. To help clear this confusion, a another picture was taken with the Nokia X (A110) and the EXIF data shows it’s a 5MP photo.
The EXIF shows that the picture was taken with flash and a fixed-focus camera with a resolution of 1,920 × 2,560 pixels (4.9 MP).
So, finally, Nokia has stopped teasing its flagship Lumia 1020 and let us event goers get some long awaited hands-on time with the thing. It’s definitely not your run-of-the-mill Windows Phone, but is that camera-centric kookiness enough to make the Lumia 1020 worth that $299 price tag?
