Nokia, the company that made the mobile phones familiar with the common man, now is going through a bit of its hard time.

Dispaly and Design Features
On talking about the display and design of the latest rumored device from Nokia, the structure reminds us of the usual Nokia Windows smartphones which comes in bar form. From the leaked images and information may look like Nokia 920 and will be having a big screen too. The device is expected to have a big screen of 4.5 inches. The screen size is fairly compared to other high end smartphones but there is no news yet, if they will be featuring any display enhancing technologies in it. Also we don't have any information on the resolution of the screen, whether it is a 720p screen or 1080p. If the screen size is of 4.5 inches, the chance is for 720p one and that is one feature that may draw the device back from the competition.
As we go through the images available, the device will not be having any physical buttons on the left side of the device but will only be provided with a charging port. And the buttons will be moved to the right side, making it easier to access them. It may resemble the Xperia way of arranging the buttons but this is what we are going to get in Nokia Lumia 1020. On the rear, the giant camera which is most probably of 41 megapixels is placed somewhere to the middle of the device, with a slight bulging. The camera features will be discussed further in this article. The device will be coming in 3 colors White, Yellow and Black.
Hardware and Connectivity Features
Coming on to the hardware and OS features, the company has done something in here too for attracting the crowd. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is expected to have a quad core Qualcomm processor and may be clocked at 1.2GHz like its predecessors. We have confirmations that the new rumored device from Nokia will be coming with a RAM of 2GB and will also be featured with internal storage capacity of 32 GB. There is also news that the device will not be featured with expandable memory by microSD card. Like the other Lumias the Nokia Lumia 1020 will also be equipped with NFC and will also be having wireless charging feature and this will be an optional one. The Nokia Lumia 1020 will also have flip to silence gesture and will also have FM radio.
Now let's concentrate on the key feature of the device which is the camera. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is expected to offer a 41 megapixel camera and is also equipped with a lot of features. The user will be able to take images at 5MP and 32MP shots simultaneously and that is promising. The feature called 'oversampling' solves the enormous size of the images captured. This feature enables to reduce the size by adjusting the resolution by combining several pixels to one and results in a high definition image with small size.
The 'oversampling' is just one feature on the list and there are others like optical image stabilization and F2.2 aperture. The device will also be featured with Carl Zeiss lens with a smart sensor and that explains the bulging. These all promises the best image capture features that a smartphone can ever offer and Nokia is bringing them to reality. The camera will be accompanied with the Pro Camera app that comes within the device which enables the user to play around with the focus, shutter speed, white balance etc.
