Nokia Lumia 1020 coming to Rogers in October

Nokia Lumia 1020 for AT&T

Ask and ye shall we receive! After we wondered earlier today when Nokia might launch the Lumia 1020 in Canada, MobileSyrup has learned via unnamed sources that it will launch through Rogers Wireless in October. As we have seen with other flagship Windows Phone 8 devices (like the Nokia Lumia 920), Rogers will once again be the exclusive carrier thanks to its relationship with Microsoft.

Nokia Lumia 1020 specifications:

  • Processor: 1.5 Ghz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4
  • Operating system: Microsoft Windows Phone 8
  • Cellular connectivity: LTE
  • Display: 4.5-inch WXGA (1280×768) 2.5 D sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass 3, PureMotion HD+, ClearBlack AMOLED
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Internal storage: 32GB
  • Rear-facing camera: 41MP BSI with Xenon flash
  • Front-facing camera: HD 1.2 MP wide angle
  • Battery: 2,000mAh
  • Dimensions: 10.4 millimeters thick
  • Weight: 158 grams
  • Colors: Black, white, and yellow
  • Other: Wireless charging with optional cover

As featured in Microsoft’s latest Windows Phone ad, the key feature of the Nokia Lumia 1020 is its 41MP PureView camera with optical image stabilization, 6-lens Zeiss optics, and a xenon flash. It is able to simultaneously shoot 38MP and 5MP oversampled images. The oversampling effectively combines seven pixels into one giant one that packs far more information than one normal one does. It also shoots blur-free HD videos with stereo sound using Nokia Rich Recording, which promises to handle sound pressure levels six times louder than conventional smartphone microphones.

There is no word yet on a specific launch date, pricing and colours making their way to Canada.
