Nokia works on Lumia 1020 smartphone
After years and years of battling tech giants such as Apple and Samsung on the mobile market Nokia is clearly in a losing position after devices such as Lumia 900, 920, 925 and 928 have failed to capture consumer attention. In order to correct this situation Nokia has turned to a hidden weapon – great imaging capabilities that will soon find their place in new smartphones.
The first smartphone of this breed will be the Lumia 1020, also known as Eos. The upcoming smartphone will have a 41 MP camera sensor and will be unveiled on July 11, 2013. The smartphone will look like Nokia’s Lumia 920/928 and will have a polycarbonate chassis.
The specs of the Lumia 1020 are still unclear but it seems that Nokia is once again in hot water, even now. The thing is that the Snapdragon S4 processor does not support cameras with sensitivity above 13 MP which means Nokia might be forced to use the Snapdragon 600 or even the Snapdragon 800 processors, which support up to 21 MP and 55 MP camera sensitivity accordingly. Then again these chips will be supported in the Windows Phone 8 General Distribution Release (GDR3), which is due later this year – something that means the Lumia 1020 will either be late or will feature a different technology that allows the 41 MP sensor to be implemented. One thing that is known for sure is that the Lumia 1020 will have a 4.5-inch display at 720p resolution.
