WPCentral on Nokia Lumia 1020: more details!
First of all, Daniel Rubino from WPCentral shared a new shot of the Nokia Lumia 1020 in three product colors: yellow, white and black. And he has much more information on the specs, which I'm happy to quote here:
It has optical image stabilization (OIS) built in
It takes the image in a 32MP and 5MP at the same time in 16:9
The 5MP image is over sampled dropping 7pixels into one “super pixel”
It shoots 38MP in 4:3
2GB of RAM, an increase of 1GB from other high end Windows Phone 8 devices
32GB of internal storage, no SD
WP8 V 8.0.10322.71
FM radio (Amber)
Flip to silence (Amber)
NFC is on board
Optional wireless charging backplate will be available
His conclusion is: "Combined with the much larger camera sensor, the F2.2. aperture and now OIS, the Lumia 1020 should easily trounce its competition in the mobile world. The addition of extra RAM is most likely required for the massive images that this phone will produce."
Will it be able to make better shots than the Nokia 808 PureView? We'll just have to wait and see, but the specs do look very promising!
Also, Daniel has news about the Nokia Pro Cam app you'll find in the Nokia Lumia 1020: it offers ISO, White Balance, Manual focus, Shutter speed (and flash, of course). In an earlier post, WPCentral has shown an optional camera grip as well.
And if that isn't enough, Daniel Rubino even adds: "The Nokia Lumia 1020 is expected to hit AT&T by the end of the month, with Microsoft Stores receiving shipments on Monday, July 22nd and an actual ship date later in the week making this a quick turnaround for Nokia. The inventory price (off-contract) lists the phone for $602 and in three colors, including yellow, white and black, though it will go for significantly cheaper on contract or the AT&T subsidized price".
Well, there you go: exclusively on AT&T to begin with, so my guess is it will take a while before the Nokia Lumia 1020 will reach other operators and continents.
Now this of course is all "unconfirmed information", but I have no reason to doubt anything Daniel writes. And with all this information, I'm looking forward to thursday even more!
