Nokia Lumia 1020 gets first teardown
The <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Nokia Lumia 1020</a> PureView 42-megapixel camera phone has had its internals splayed open for the first time. Posted on Chinese site Baidu, the <a href="" rel='nofollow'>new teardown</a> gives an insight into how Nokia managed to pack in the best smartphone camera module on the market into a device that is thinner and 30 grams lighter than the Lumia 920. The photos of the internals of a Lumia 1020 prototype highlight the way in which Nokia managed to dramatically cut down the size of the camera module in the original Symbian OS-powered <a href="" rel='nofollow'>PureView 808</a> so that its design would not be compromised.<br />
<br />
The Lumia 1020, which runs Windows Phone 8, has received widespread acclaim for its camera module with most reviews stating unequivocally that it is the best camera on a smartphone yet. The device is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor with 'Krait' architecture clocked at 1.5GHz. While Windows Phone 8 has not yet gained substantial market traction, Nokia is hoping that the device will help to continue the upward trend in its Lumia sales, which reached a <a href=" percent/" rel='nofollow'>record 5.6 million units</a>.<br />
<br />
The Lumia 1020 is available in the US on AT&T for $300 with a two-year contract, or $659 off-contract.<br />
