So Nokia just let loose its worst kept secret of a phone, called the Nokia Lumia 1020. As you know by now, we covered the event live from New York and we brought you our hands on, with some pics of the device. We are now bringing you the complete walk through of the device in photos and some more, so dive in!
From the front it looks indistinguishable from the Lumia 920, especially in this yellow. It is indistinguishable even from the sides, as you can see from this pic –
The device is actually thinner than the Lumia 920 when you don’t consider the camera hump. Coming at 10.4mm, it is 0.3mm thinner than the 920 at 10.7mm. It also weighs less at 158g when compared to the hefty 185g weight of the Lumia 920, and we think that’s the effect of the removal of the wireless charging circuits on the Lumia 1020.
Zooming in closer, on the front of the device, it is adorned by the same 4.5 inch Super AMOLED HD screen that you find on the Lumia 928 and the Lumia 925. And yes, it is of the pentile variety.
Coming to the back, the huge black chunk is the one that houses the awesome 41 MP camera sensor, the six element lens, the Xenon flash along with the LED flash. You can also notice the wireless charging contacts at the bottom.
All the logos and the branding is incorporated in the hump itself, while leaving the other parts empty. The shot above is with a wireless charging shell on. Like the shell, the unibody polycarbonate body is also matte unlike the Lumia 920 which was glossy in yellow.
The above image shows off the wireless charging shell that snaps on the back of the Lumia 1020.
On the top of the device you have the 3.5mm audio jack, the secondary microphone that allows for stereo rich recording of audio during video recording, and the micro SIM card tray hidden inside, that can be ejected using the in built SIM ejector tool.
And over at the bottom, you have the lanyard holes, the micro USB port that is slightly decorated with a black bumper and the grilled loud speaker.
The Nokia Pro Camera app that is pre loaded with the Lumia 1020 has an innovative dial UI that lets you control each and every aspect of the camera including shutter speed that can be set up to 4 seconds, ISO that can be set up to 3200 and even completely control the manual focus. This is completely feature packed for a pro user and that is an excellent addition to the impressive camera.
Above image is another look at the UI without the dials that can be brought up with just a sideward swipe on the camera touch button. Each setting can be individually selected from the top, and as you can see, it has multiple face detection built in.
The Lumia 1020 seems to be running on the latest version of Nokia’s firmware over Windows Phone GDR2. The build 1325.0000 seems to be an improvement over the Nokia Lumia 925’s amber update.
One more look at the camera unit, because lets face it, it is the most impressive aspect of this camera phone. So that’s all the good photos we have for now, and we will be bringing you more stuff from the event soon. Keep checking the blog for more updates about the Nokia Lumia 1020!
