Nokia Lumia 1020: full specifications are here!

Nokia Lumia 1020: full specifications are here!The Nokia Lumia 1020 is set to be announced later today, but in keeping with the leak-fest that's surrounded the phone previously known as the Nokia Eos, the full spec has leaked out early.

It's not bad, too, with the 6-lens PureView camera featuring 3x lossless zoom, and the whole shebang powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor supported by 2GB of RAM.

We have the previously unheralded Unleash The Phones to thank for nabbing the Lumia 1020 exclusive, and while we already knew a fair bit about it from recent leaks, the full picture still fills in a lot of blanks.

We'll start with the camera, which as we all knew already boasts the same 41MP PureView sensor previously seen in the Nokia 808 PureView.

It boasts the same 6-lens optics arrangement debuted recently on the Lumia 925, while “high resolution zoom” will use all those extra megapixels to give you the same effect as a 3x optical zoom – in other words, digital zoom but with no loss of quality.

Given all that, possibly the most impressive spec of all is that the Lumia 1020 is just 10.4mm thick, a serious reduction on the chunky 808's 13.9mm waistline.

There's no info on the dual-core 1.5GHz CPU other than it's a Snapdragon chip – no surprise there – while the 32GB of internal storage doesn't look like it can be added to via microSD card, though you do get 7GB of SkyDrive space.

Aside from being a photo specialist, the Lumia 1020 also records 1080p video at 30fps and boasts dual microphones capable of recording distortion-free stereo audio even in loud environments.

We're not certain about the 2,000mAh battery, though. The quoted standby/talktime figures are solid enough, but that PureView camera surely uses up a fair bit of juice, which wouldn't show up in the figures. But we'll hold off a final judgement until the facts are known.

The full leaked spec is pasted in below – we'll bring you some official pics and more details after the Lumia 1020's official New York launch event later today.

One word. Want!!!!

Might put up with WP for this...

Stelph  Jul. 11, 2013 at 11:24

Its certainly the first premium priced WP8 phone that ive been interested in (the budget ones are also tempting I have to admit)

madstock  Jul. 11, 2013 at 12:13

This is my next handset, without a shadow of a doubt (along with the charging shell/camera grip).

$300 on contract, exclusive to ONE carrier... LOL
They haven't learned a thing after all...

watched the live announcement and i must say the camera is pretty impressive

Three have confirmed they are stocking in the UK, as are Phones4U. Telefonica (O2) have a worldwide exclusive on the 64GB model, but not the 32GB. It would seem the good old US of A is the only nation where the 1020 is locked to one carrier. How many variants of the 920 turned up as a side-step round that exclusivity? There's every chance the merkins will see a 1022 and 1028 at some point.

I'm not sure they're up for suffering the same exclusivity issues as they did with the 920 TBH - there's little sign that they are.

Yes. All true. But they are so obsessed with cracking the American nut.
You could see it live on Twitter... hype pre-launch presentation. LOOOOOONG sigh, a gulp, and the b*tching set in.

Still, this seems to be a phone I really want to try. The first this year.

41mp is great for a phone but seeing as it has no zoom, does this mean it's something like 3x optical zoom equivalent? Also, the phone itself is limited by dual core compared to other android / iOS phones. I know this is a WP8 restriction rather than Nokia but still...

I am tempted by this phone but the Xperia i1 may be a nicer over all experience when it finally gets announced.

ANY zoom on a phone is a godsend, especially one this thin, its a shame that Nokia decided not to make the phone deeper to get rid of the camera "buldge", the space could have been filled with a bigger battery

if i had a pound for everytime i say this

android needs quad core cause the OS needs it as its very resource hungary and basically runs ****. Windows os doesnt need quadcore (although will have it by the end of the year) for the consumer to feel a smooth operating system.

its not all about whats under the bonnet

Agree, WP and iOS are MUCH better optimised than Android, hence why they can get away with not needing the same number of cores etc

Agree. Currently 'trying' a Lumia 820, and it's pretty impressive in terms of speed etc...
