Nokia Lumia 1020 shares almost the same screen size of 4.5inch as of Lumia 920 and Lumia 925. It has got a pixel density of 332 PPI which is really great and makes the display quality really awesome.
Nokia Lumia 1020 is being powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor with Snapdragon chipset. It comes with a 2GB of RAM and not needed to mention, runs on Windows Phone 8 OS.
However the Unique Selling Point of this smartphone is its 41MP pureview camera. This is the most advanced camera in any smartphone ever. This is not the first camera with the PureView technology by Nokia. Nokia released Lumia 808 pureview with 41MP camera. This smartphone created a lot of buzz which gave Nokia a green signal to release some other smartphones in the pureview series like the Lumia 920 which was also great for low light imaging.
Nokia has been a kind of trend setter for bringing smartphones with high end camera capabilities. Ever since their first release of Nokia N8 with a 13MP camera which was the highest megapixel camera in a smartphone ever released at that time, Nokia made a trend which was then adopted by other brands and they started following it too. Even though the camera capabilities of a Nokia Pureview smartphone is still unmatchable.
Nokia Lumia 1020 pureview with 6 lens optics along with a Xenon Flash is packed up with several other features making it the best smartphone camera. It includes features like OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and backside-illuminated image sensor.
Nokia has also added some camera software including the Nokia Pro Camera app and Smart Camera Mode which further enhances the photography experience. Just for a note It also offers a 1.2-megapixel front facing camera. The phone comes with a fixed 32GB internal storage which means you don’t have any option for expanding it.
“The response to the Nokia Lumia range in India has been extremely encouraging.” – P. Balaji, Managing Director, Nokia India.
As far as we see Lumia performance in the Indian market, The high-end Lumia smartphones have not done very well. Though if you talk about the low end smartphones, well they are a very great option over Android. And to be precise, were doing well compared to the high end ones. Still the Finnish company is working hard to get back its place and reputation in the smartphone section.
