With the launch of the Nokia Lumia 1020, you can get snap-happy in the moment and worry about the type of image you want to frame out of the moment later. The secret? The Nokia Pro Camera mode, which makes full use of the Lumia 1020’s 41 megapixel camera sensor.
High resolution of this kind means that at the push of the shutter button, the camera takes in so much information that you can think about how to zoom your photo after you’ve actually taken it.
The sensor itself is not identical to that which could be found in the model 808 PureView, many will notice how much thinner Lumia 1020 (10.4 mm) and lighter (158g) than chubby Symbian models, but the engineering interventions are therefore needed to hit the sensor.
The team from Nokia has confirmed that the newly developed sensor has pixels of 1.1 μm (or 1.4 μm at 808), and probably will eventually (and first disassembly) to find out more details.
Lumia 1020 comes with 2GB of RAM, a used SoC unfortunately remains identical to the Lumia 92x series (Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, clocked at 1.5GHz), which means that in the game and a separate processor billion pixels per second when it comes to video.
