Nokia Lumia 1020 (EOS)

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is Nokia’s follow up to their 2012 PureView 808 Symbian device, which featured a new 41MP camera sensor. The Lumia 1020 takes that same technology and merges it with the Lumia 920’s optical image stabilization (OIS) and Windows Phone 8 to bring mobile photography to a new level. The combination of technologies should ensure high resolution, sharp and blur free photos.

The device features a 4.5-inch AMOLED screen, 32GB of internal memory (no expansion), 2GB of RAM and a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon CPU. The phone is nearly identical to the Lumia 920 except it omits built-in Wireless charging (Qi) in order to make the device thinner.

In addition to the device itself, an optional wireless charging backplate and a separate camera grip are available to enhance the device.

AT&T is expected to launch the device in the US at the end of July, 2013 for $299 on contract, with a European launch coming shortly thereafter. It will launch with the GDR2 OS and Amber updates.

If you want the best smartphone camera right now, you buy a Nokia Lumia 1020. It’s been that way ever since the Lumia 1020 launched on AT&T here in the United States a little over six months ago. After the initial US availability of the device in July, it slowly showed up around the world on other carriers over the next few months.

It’s not a wildly popular device like the Lumia 520. The Lumia 1020 was never designed to move huge volumes of sales. Instead the Lumia 1020 was as an exercise in combining elegant hardware, innovative software and the best possible mobile imaging capabilities into a smartphone. It's unashamedly a niche device.

We’ve had the Lumia 1020 since launch and have loved every minute of it. But six months is a long time in tech, so we're going to take some time and look back at how the Nokia Lumia 1020 has performed over the past six months.
