After weeks of leaks, teases and speculation Nokia have finally announced their latest camera flagship the Nokia Lumia 1020. The phone packs the monstrous 41 Megapixel camera we’ve been waiting for to grace Windows Phone ever since the 808 was launched 16 months ago.

The Lumia 1020 will be available on At&t starting July 26th for $299, with preorders starting July 16th, the phone is available in MATTE White, Black and Yellow (YAY!).

The 1020 will ship out to China and Europe THIS quarter, with the Telefonica 64Gb exclusive version shipping to select markets


As rumored the phone takes two images simultaneously, taking a 41 MP image and a second 5 MP image (where each single pixel is made of the best 7 pixels, thanks to oversampling).

The OIS in the phone is a combination of floating lens AND moving ball bearings keeping the lens stable (you can hear them moving!)

The xenon flash on the 1020 allows to freeze movement in the most difficult conditions (see image below)

The Lumia 1020 with the Nokia Pro camera allows you to ZOOM OUT after you capture a picture!

“You can literally find a needle in a haystack.”

The Nokia Pro Camera app allows you to change all the settings on screen without intruding on your live view, and the changes are instantly applied!

Oh and can someone say long exposure shots!?
