Nokia beats the hell out of the Galaxy S IV Zoom with the Nokia Lumia 1020

You can actually start forgetting the Samsung Galaxy S IV Zoom because Nokia has officially announced the monster that has stolen the crown from that smartphone. Nokia, in an event in New York, announced a smartphone that sports the best camera, the Nokia Lumia 1020. With that announcement, the Finnish phone maker also announced their newest flagship smartphone that will carry the flag of Nokia. The Lumia 1020 sports a brilliant 41MP rear camera that is stuffed with all the neat and cool camera technology you cannot find anywhere else. I was able to watch the event and apparently, Nokia did take a blow from Samsung's offering and made it look like it was a phone born 10years ago. That is when we talk about these phones' camera. The fact that they both run on different OS-es is an argument already. But this is Nokia's time to shine. And shine they did! With a bang!

The device's camera is spectacular and that is still an understatement. I cannot actually talk about the camera, since I do not have any expertise whatsoever about these things. I'll leave that up to Nokia with their "white paper" it is a PDF that explains and presents to you the technologies incorporated into this brilliant camera phone.

The phone will be available in the US exclusively via AT&T for $299.99 on contract. AT&T will start accepting pre-orders of the Lumia 1020 on July 16th and will make the smartphone available on July 26th.
