Nokia held a press event in New York earlier this week, where the Finnish manufacturer finally unveiled its new Lumia 1020 model.
For months, there has been plenty of anticipation and rumours about its potential features, and as expected the phone sports a number of very impressive camera features like a 41 megapixel PureView sensor, Carl Zeiss optics and a new version of the Nokia Pro Camera application.
While the Nokia Lumia 1020 is first and foremost a camera phone, it also incorporates plenty of other impressive specifications. The phone boasts a 4.5 inch pure notion HD+ ClearBlack display, 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and Windows Phone 8 as its operating system of choice.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 shares similar styling to its popular Lumia 920 counterpart, which has won numerous awards for its design. Three colour options of the Nokia Lumia 1020 is set to hit the market, in white, black and yellow options.
A couple of days after the phone’s debut, uSwitch reported that UK networks have already begun to confirm that they will be offering pay monthly contract deals for the Nokia Lumia 1020. The website reports that both O2 and Three have confirmed that they will be carrying the device. While none have yet announced any details regarding specific contracts and pricing, we expect a number to include the handset itself for free, with pricing dictated by monthly allowances of data usage, calls and text messages. Because this is such a high profile smartphone release, it is also likely that many other major networks will be keen to offer this phone. Naturally, the high end nature of the phone’s spec list will invariably mean that it has a SIM free price tag to match, so pay monthly contracts are likely to be the most popular means of buying the Lumia 1020.
As soon as any more specific details regarding contracts,
pricing and release dates for the Nokia Lumia 1020 in the UK have been
revealed, we will of course keep you updated and compare prices and special offers for the Nokia Lumia 925.
