Oops. Someone posted videos of the upcoming but not-yet-released Nokia Lumia 1020
’s YouTube channel; it all looks very official, so we presume that the videos were simply posted too early. (We feel for the poor schmuck who at best is getting a tongue-lashing from a red-faced superior right about now and at worst is out of a job.)
The videos are now set to private on YouTube
, so you can’t access them directly, but because this is the Internet and this is how things go, the videos are still available elsewhere, so we’re able to embed them here:
As you can see, the emphasis is really on multimedia, making this an ideal phone for those who want to replace their point-and-shoot with their phone. The Lumia 1020 can shoot video in 720p HD and has a 6x zoom.
For photos, the 41MP image sensor is obviously notable, and the camera also features Zeiss optics, optical image stabilization, zoom, manual controls, and low light capabilities. The videos also boast of stereo audio capture with deep bass via “digital high-performance microphones”.
