The Nokia Lumia 1020 was unveiled by the company just a few weeks before Microsoft announced plans to purchase the mobile division of the Finnish firm.
The 1020 is the culmination of Nokia's efforts to innovate in the Windows Phone ecosystem, featuring the same ClearBlack and PureMotion HD+ screen technologies and location based apps as prior top-end Nokia phones with the added bonus of a massive 41MP rear camera sensor.
The rear sensor is the phones most interesting feature. While boasting the same mega-pixel count as the Nokia 808 Pureview, the 1020's sensor is entirely new. Nokia claims it is the result of over a year's tireless research and development and is made of over 200 custom components. The sensor is marketed as the finest ever used in a smartphone, with Nokia claiming it can match if not beat most sub-£300 dedicated handheld cameras.
