After more than a month of leaks and rumors, during its Nokia Zoom Reinvented event in New York the company finally and officially announced its newest member of the Lumia lineup, the Lumia 1020 Windows Phone 8 smartphone that will feature a 41-megapixel camera.

The star of the show is the 41-megapixel autofocus PureView camera with 1/1.5-inch BSI sensor, six-lens Zeiss optics and optical image stabilization and two flashes, xenon and LED. The aforementioned sensor can take 40 and 5-megapixel photos at the same time and thanks to Nokia's Pro Camera and Smart Camera lens apps this allows users to set manual settings and get the most out of it. The 41-meagpixel snapper can shoot 1080p videos and feature lossless zoom that allows you to zoom up to four times iat 1080p and up to 6 times at 720p without any sacrifice in quality. The front features a 1.2-megapixel camera.

The precise dimensions of the Lumia 1020 smartphone are 130.4x71.4x10.4mm and it weighs 158 grams, which makes it lighter than the Lumia 920 and puts it roughly at the same size, although it has a large hump on its back.

As far as the specification go, Nokia Lumia 1020 features a 4.5-inch Clear Black AMOLED 1280x768 screen with Nokia's PureMotion+, Nokia Glance Screen, Super Sensitive Touch technology and Corning's Gorilla Glass 3 for protection. The chip behind it is Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 chipset with dual-core Krait CPU clocked at 1.5GHz, paired up with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Nokia also teamed up with Microsoft to offer additional 7GB of SkyDrive storage.

The rest of the specs include dual-band 802.11abgn, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC, GPS with GLONASS for connectivity as well as quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, 42Mpbs UMTS/HSPA and LTE support. It will be powered by a 2000mAh battery that supports wireless charging via accessory cover and according to Nokia, it is enough to keep it alive for 16 days on standby, 13.3 hours of talk time and 6.8/63 hours of video/music playback.

In addition to the wireless charging accessory, Nokia also announced a "camera grip" accessory for Lumia 1020 that will, of course, give you a better grip, add 1020mAh battery and adds a standard tripod mount.

Nokia Lumia 1020 will hit AT&T in the US on July 26th for US $299.99 with a two year contract and be available in yellow, white and black colors. The pre-orders will start on July 16th.
