Thanks to Nokia’s innovative PureView technology, the Nokia Lumia 1020 makes it easier than ever before to capture, edit and share memories in incredible detail. With Nokia’s innovative PureView technology, including optical image stabilization, the device is able to produce some of the sharpest images possible by any digital camera. This is made possible by leading hardware technology combined with a new application called Nokia Pro Camera, which makes it easy for anyone to take professional quality images.

Either before a picture is taken or after it has been shot, the zoom capability enables people to discover and then rediscover the personal stories each image can tell. With a beautiful interface that visually demonstrates how settings will affect the final photo or video, Nokia Pro Camera makes it easier than ever to capture, edit and share photos and videos with unrivaled clarity.

Using a new feature called dual capture; the Nokia Lumia 1020 simultaneously takes a high resolution 38 megapixel image for endless editing opportunities, and creates a 5 megapixel picture that is easy to share to social networks with Windows Phone 8.

The Nokia Lumia 1020’s 41 megapixel sensor features leading ZEISS optics with six physical lenses, plus optical image stabilization, delivering crystal clear pictures even in low light conditions. It also captures blur free videos with stereo sound even at the loudest concerts thanks to Nokia Rich Recording, which handles sound pressure levels six times louder than conventional smartphone microphones.

Adding further professional capabilities and additional battery life, Nokia will also debut the new Nokia Camera Grip. This is an accessory that complements device features usually reserved for stand-alone cameras, like the Nokia Lumia 1020’s built-in xenon flash and mechanical shutter. The Nokia Camera Grip also has a tripod mount.

The personal nature of Windows Phone makes it the perfect platform for the Nokia Lumia 1020, showcasing live images on the Start screen with the Photos tile, quick sharing to social networks, and easy access to files across a number of devices with SkyDrive. With the dedicated camera button, Windows Phone is designed with imaging in mind.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 will be available in yellow, white and black for AED 2,699/- at the Nokia stand and all major electronic retail stores participating at Gitex Shopper.

Visitors at Gitex Shopper can experience and learn all about Nokia’s latest PureView imaging innovation at stand # SS3-2 at Sheikh Saeed Hall 3, Dubai World Trade Centre.

“We want to take people on a journey from capturing pictures to recording and sharing their lives. The Nokia Lumia 1020 will bring a new meaning to pictures for consumers in the region, and we look forward to experiencing this at Gitex Shopper,” concluded Reddy.
