   The Nokia Lumia 1020 promises to become the hero device that both NOKIA and MICROSOFT desperately need at this moment. Anyway, all that aside – lets talk about The Lumia 1020, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is very close to the Lumia 925, It packs a 4.5″ AMOLED screen of WXGA resolution (768 x 1280 pixels) with Super sensitive touch which means that you can use this phone even while wearing a glove. It’s also protected by Gorilla Glass 3, which has a nice smooth curve along its side. There’s a 3.5mm audio jack and the microSIM card tray on top and at the bottom is – the microUSB port and loudspeaker grill with two mics at each side. There’s no microSD card slot, but the phone comes with 32GB of built-in memory but we are hoping to see newer versions with 64GB of memory very soon. Now with this brief description, let’s take a look at the specification of this long-awaited Smartphone.

    There are a few specific points worth noting here. First of all, at 10.4mm-thick, the Lumia 1020 is very slightly thinner than thelumia 920 (10.7mm), but a good deal thicker than thelumia 925 (8.5mm). Nonetheless, at 158g, it’s considerably lighter than the heavyweight 920, which weighed in at a mighty 185g.

    Like the 925 – and the cheaperlumia 920 – the 1020 has to make do without integrated wireless charging, but this feature is available through an optional charging cover that clips on to the outside of the handset. There’s also mention here of the”camera grimp” accessory that we reported on earlier this week, including confirmation that it will include its own battery to aid in extended camera use, as well as including a universal tripod mount.

    The final point that we’d like to highlight is that – as previous leaks indicated – the handset will be available in just three colours: black, white and yellow. That’s a departure from other Lumia models which have so far been offered in a much broader range of colours.







The 1020 will be priced at $602 unlocked and will arrive at stores on July 22nd. That means the device should be available to consumers a couple of days later. If Nokia can manage to announce and sell the Lumia 1020 in the same month that would be a huge win. Now all we need to know is how awesome it will be.
