The Nokia Lumia 1020, formerly known as the Nokia EOS, was finally officially introduced just a few days ago. There has been a lot of anticipation for this Windows Phone 8 handset, and we’ve come across a short video that we think readers may find interesting. It shows the Nokia Lumia 1020 vs. the Lumia 920, and gives a brief look at how the two handsets compare.
The Nokia Lumia 920 released last year and has been an extremely popular handset. The Lumia 1020 on the other hand, is to release later this month, and there should be a big market potential for this handset because of its whopping 41-megapixel rear camera.
The 2-minute YouTube video that we’ve embedded for you to view below this story, gives a good all-round look at the new Lumia 1020, showing it alongside the Lumia 920 as a comparison. When looking at the design, the obvious difference is the very noticeable hump for the camera on the 1020. It’s described as feeling thinner and lighter than the 920, which it is, so no surprise there, and the video goes on to mention the displays and cameras of the two devices.
The video is not meant to be a detailed specs comparison, so for your convenience we’ll give you a few of the major specs for each, so that you can stack them up against each other.
