Rumored resolutions of camera images leak, along with price

Nokia Oyj.'s (HEX:NOK1V) fresh flagship phone, the Lumia 1020 is set to be unveiled Thursday, but more specs are already trickling out, following the phone's inadvertent outing via Microsoft Corp. (MSFT).

Here's a run-down on what we know about the phone's camera, which is expected to be the best smartphone camera available -- rivaling all but the best point and shoots (other than lacking an optical zoom).
  • 1/1.2" image sensor
  • Dual flash: LED + Xenon
  • OIS (optical image stabilization) via floating lens*
  • 38 megapixel (4:3); 32 MP (16:9); and 5 MP (16:9) (with 7 pixels per "superpixel")
  • F2.2 aperture (some sources say this may be adjustable)
  • Manual internal shutter
  • 2 GB DRAM
  • 32 GB NAND Flash Storage
  • NFC
  • Camera grip with built in battery ($70 USD) (capacity unknown)
  • Wireless charging via backplate*
*This first popped up in the Lumia 920, and is also found in the 925/928.

The onboard "Amber" skin, which is Nokia exclusive will provide:
  • FM radio support
  • Flip to silence
  • Pro Camera app (control ISO, white balance, shutter speed, flash, manual focus)
The Pro Camera app is expected to stand in for the more blasé standard Windows Phone Camera app, although automatic settings will be available by default.

The phone will reportedly go on sale at Microsoft Stores on July 22, unlocked, at a price of $602 USD.  The Microsoft stores reportedly will carry three varieties -- yellow, white, and black.  AT&T, Inc. (T) is expected to be the initial carrier for the (locked) version of the device, which is expected to feature additional colors (like cyan).

International release prices and dates are unknown, at this point.

It seems like this is the updated PureView 808, but on W8. Similar sensor, updated lense, and likely some software tweaks to fix some of the 808's little issues. If it can perform at all similar, I will definitely be tempted to give up my Note 2 for it. Would love to have a camera like the 808 on me all of the time for random shots.

I would not be so quick to give up the note 2 just yet. Cool as the phone seems to be shaping up to be it is still just a Lumia 920 with a fat (and never has fat been so beautiful) camera attached to it. This fall we will see the release of GDR3 which will allow for a 1080p display, new duel and quad core CPUs, and a handful of other game changing perks. I would imagine that not too long after the update we will see a next gen 1020 with a lot of these features and a larger display which would be easier to move to from the note you have.
