41-Megapixel Nokia Lumia 1020: Everything (we think) we know so far

Which phone has been your favorite so far? Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One or iPhone 5? Certainly these devices are so hot and sell well around the world. It means a lot but it doesn’t mean everything. Now you have a new choice. How about Nokia's new Lumia 1020? Ahead of the formal announcement in New York on Thursday, details are leaking about the Finnish company's latest device for the U.S. market. Nokia Lumia 1020 is getting a lot of attention for its impressive 41 MP camera. Here’s what we know:
1.  Specs
The device will have a 4.5-inch display and quad-core microchip. It features optical image stabilization, an FM radio, near-field communication tech, 2GB of memory and 32GB of non-expandable flash storage, per the previous link. Oh, and wireless charging will be an option.

2.  Color – Yellow, Black and White
According to Windows Phone Central, Nokia Lumia 1020 will come in white, yellow and black colors.

3.  Mobile Name – Lumia 1020
Over the weekend, Microsoft Windows Phone manager Joe Belfiore posted on Flickr a series of sample images from different Lumia Windows Phones — two of which were shot with a phone tagged as the "Lumia 1020." So this smartphone will launch as the Nokia Lumia 1020. And it will be a Windows Phone, per this unconfirmed press photo and unconfirmed field photo.

4.  Camera – 41 Megapixels
Its differentiating feature will be a camera. Nokia gave us "41 million reasons to zoom in" a few weeks ago, and the company in February introduced a 41-megapixel camera. That was followed by a Guardian report saying it would be taking that tech to Windows Phone handsets.
Additionally, the Lumia 1020 will use Nokia’s Pureview sensor (also featured on the 920 and 808) to take high quality images in low light situations.  The 1020’s camera is also expected to include sophisticated (if not new) photography options like: Optic Image Stabilization, LED and Xenon flash, a “lossless zoom” feature, and settings for ISO, white balance, manual focus, and shutter speed. Its camera "takes the image in 32MP and 5MP at the same time in 16:9," according to Windows Phone Central, and "shoots 38MP in 4:3."

Rumors have also been circulated that the Lumia 1020 has appeared on AT&T’s inventory list.  This all but confirms that the device will be officially announced and demonstrated this Thursday, and indicates we’ll most likely be able to buy it within the next month.
