Nokia Lumia 1020 gets first teardown
The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/290795== http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/07/11/takes.simultaneous.38mp.oversampled.5mp.images.for .social.network.sharing/" 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="http://macnn.com/rd/290796==http://tieba.baidu.com/p/2497020173" 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="http://macnn.com/rd/290797== http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/04/20/promo.video.shot.with.41mp.nokia.phone/" 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="http://macnn.com/rd/290794== http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/04/18/nokia.shows.positive.signs.with.lumia.sales.up.27. 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 />
