The Lumia 1020 makes stunning photos a priority Video Transcript
Hey, guys. This is Brian Bennett for CNET.com. And we're at Nokia's launch event in New York for the Nokia Lumia 1020. This basically follows up the 920, and it runs Windows Phone 8, Microsoft's operating system. It has pretty much the same basic specs on the inside as the 920. You can see a very large LCD screen, and the same sort of polycarbonate coating. But on the back, you have a 41-megapixel camera from Nokia, which is extremely powerful. It has a xenon flash, and that's something you only find in, you know, point-and-shoot cameras, things like that. And it basically can do something called oversampling, which essentially takes a ton of information at once and packs it into your photo, so you can zoom in extremely tightly and, you know, share that and see a lot of details that you would have missed in another more standard photograph. As you could tell, it's running Windows 8 operating system, have the same menus features here, sporting a lot of apps. Some of the things that they say that they have been talking about today has been the Nokia camera app which offers lots of ways to adjust the exposure settings and a lot of other camera features just by sliding a little display on the screen. As you can see, you can-- you can pull this out and get this really funky sliding interface here. You can adjust the ISO by going like this. You can-- could change all sorts of features here just by using this interface on the touch screen, it's pretty nice. You do actually have a choice of accessories that you can get with the Lumia 1020. One of them is a camera grip, which will actually attach to the back covered screen, I believe. Stick on the back and add extra battery capacity as well as a grip, so you can hold the camera, better wise, taking photos. You can also get a backing that will actually add wireless charging to the device. It's not actually built in to the phone itself, but you can add that after the fact. It does, I believe, make the phone a little bit thicker. So, that's something you might wanna think about before you pull that route. Another feature that Nokia is talking about is their new updates, the Map software. And there's a feature here that they call, which enables you to look at an all-augmented reality view of the places and items you search for. So, here we go-- we're doing a little search for the subways around us. You can see we're looking through the camera. And we see a little radar of-- that turns as we tilt the device, and it shows items of interest and how close they are to you. You can see, you know, the results that are nearby. All in all, it's a pretty interesting way to sort of get augmented reality into your search. And that is the Nokia Maps feature. We'll just take a little twirl here, just to see what it's all about. It's a little bit thinner than the first 920, the original 920 device. So, that's pretty nice. There you have it, folks. We just took a first look at Nokia's brand new Lumia 1020.
