Sensor is an estimated 5x the size of the iPhone 5's, 1020 has adjustable aperture, manual shutter, xenon flash

Nokia Oyj.'s (HEX:NOK1V)) upcoming "PureView" Windows Phone -- reportedly to be branded the "Lumia 1020" -- has been the subject of several image leaks in recent months.  Now EVLeaks has offered up what may be the first images of the front face of the phone.

The fresh photos at first blush appear to show a standard Windows Phone 8 interface, but on closer inspection they appear to be running Nokia's "Amber" Windows Phone skin, which adds the Nokia Camera Pro (pictured) and FM Radio app (which wakes the dormant radio on various Nokia devices).  It also will reportedly allow users to double tap to wake their device.

The other significant feature in the front-face shot is the AT&T, Inc. (T) logo, which hints that this Windows Phone-friendly carrier may be the first landing spot of this super shooter.

Here's a quick recap of the phone's specs:
  • 1/1.2", 41 megapixel image sensor (about 5x the surface area of the sensor in Apple, Inc.'s (AAPL) iPhone 5 (1/3.2") or 4x the HTC Corp. (TPE:2498) One (1/3")

  • Carl Zeiss optics with adjustable aperture (new) and floating lens tech for low-light
  • Mechanical shutter
  • Xenon flash
  • 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon from Qualcomm, Inc. (QCOM) (possibly quad-core in some variants)
  • 4.5-inch, 768x1280 pixel OLED display, with ClearBlack and PureMotion HD+ overlays
  • 1 GB DRAM
  • 32 GB internal NAND flash storage
The phone is rumored to be unveiled July 11, which puts it head-to-head with Huawei Technologies Comp. (SHE:002502) Ascend P6, which launches a week later in London on June 18.  Until then, enjoy the fresh pic!

If you can't be bothered to read all, check sample gallery and review conclusions.

This camera IS good, actually better than most pocket cameras. Save - maybe! - for new small cameras with large sensors, like Sony RX100 and Nikon 1 systems.

Zoom adds to versatility but not to IQ. Check new big sensor "pocket" cameras with prime lens, like Sony RX1. Absolutely amazing IQ.

As already said, sensor is larger than most small cameras - again, beside cameras with new 1" sensor. Having decent experience with RX100, I can tell you this: while RX100 has more noise in 20MP RAW images than my D70 dSLR native 6MP RAWs, it also has more than 3x pixels. Down-sampling 20MP RAWs to same resolution as D70 (6MP), without applying any additional noise reduction, I am getting arguably better looking JPGs than from my D70 RAWs convert to JPGs (both conversions done in Lightroom).

So basically, while I expect this phone images on full resolution to be soft and noisy, downsampled to reasonable 8-12MP (and maybe some more above) will provide amazing results.
