Nokia Lumia 1020 (which is also known as Nokia EOS, Nokia 909, Nokia RM-875, Nokia RM-877, Nokia RM-876) is the latest addition by Nokia to their Nokia Lumia series. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is a Windows phone with 41MP camera. Unveiling the Nokia Lumia 1020 in an event in New York few days ago by the Nokia CEO Stephen Elop called it a “flagship device”. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is uniquely remembered for its camera feature which has seen a great improvement from the 8MP in Nokia Lumia 920 to 41MP in Nokia Lumia 1020. The camera is definitely the most interesting part of this phone, combining 41MP sensor with 6-element optically stabilized lens and enabling 3x Zoom and a xenon flash for brighter low-light performance.
