Available from Oct 5, Nokia’s latest camera-oriented smartphone offers an attractive blend of a 41-megapixel camera and optical image stabilization.


After a long wait, Nokia has finally launched their latest Lumia 1020 flagship smartphone in Singapore. Aimed at those who desire the best mobile phone imaging capabilities, the 1020 packs a whopping 41-megapixel camera sensor, first seen on its 808 PureView, into a Lumia 920-like body, while also managing to cramp in a brand new dual-axis optical image stabilization system.


Along with the new camera, the 1020 also features a new camera application called Nokia Pro Cam, which allows users to adjust exposure settings such as shutter speed, ISO and even offers a manual focus option.


To complement the Lumia 1020’s imaging prowess, Nokia has also introduced the Nokia Camera Grip, an attachable camera grip accessory that also doubles up as an external battery pack with a built-in 1020 mAh battery. The grip accessory also features a tripod mount, which will come in handy for those long exposure shots.


Other specifications include a 4.5-inch 720p AMOLED display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, LTE connectivity and a non-removable 2000mAh battery.

Pricing and availability:

The Lumia 1020 will be available in black, white and yellow from October 5 and is now available for pre-order, contract-free, from all Nokia stores and solutions partners. The 1020 will go for S$999 and include a complimentary Nokia Camera Grip (usual: S$98) as a special bundle, while stocks last.
