Close to the waterline here in New York City, Nokia decided it was time to unveil their new flagship smartphone, the Lumia 1020, to the tech press. It’s filled to the brim with new hardware, from a 4.5-inch 1280 x 768 AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 41-megapixel EOS camera sensor on the back with Xenon flash and f/2.2 lens. For video users, the Lumia 1020 supports 6x zoom in 720p HD. The twist here is that a front-facing, wide-angle camera will also have access to an Xenon flash.
And of course, to support all of this hardware, Nokia threw in a 2,000 mAh battery. Yellow, white, and black are the colors engineered by Nokia into the Lumia 1020, including the usual unibody design.
Despite its impressive feature-set on paper, the Lumia 1020 isn’t the thinnest device: at 10.4mm thickness and weighing some 158 grams, it’s a little heavier than a few flagship devices from Samsung, Apple, Sony, and HTC but still manages to be sleek and easy to wield.
