Nokia Lumia 1020 now up for pre-order in India for Rs. 49,999*

Nokia has finally revealed the pricing of its flagship cameraphone, the Lumia 1020, which is up for pre-order for Rs. 49,999 on Nokia's Indiatimes portal. The site mentions the release date to be third week of October. As a promotional offer, Nokia is offering the WH-530 stereo headphone worth Rs. 2,999 free with the every pre-order of the Lumia 1020.
The company officially unveiled the Lumia 1020 at an event in Delhi last week. However, the Lumia 1020's price was not revealed at the launch, and was scheduled to be announced on October 10, a day before the official release in India. It looks like both these pieces of information on pricing and availability were wrong, with the price now revealed, and the third week of October the official release date.

The Nokia Lumia 1020's display boasts of a pixel density of 332 PPI. It is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM and runs Windows Phone 8. The USP of the phone is its 41-megapixel PureView camera sensor which offers Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), backside-illuminated image sensor, 6 lens optics along with a Xenon Flash. Nokia has also added some camera software including the Nokia Pro Camera app and Smart Camera Mode. It also offers a 1.2-megapixel front facing camera, and comes with 32GB built-in storage, which is non-expandable.

The Lumia 1020 is not the first PureView phone from Nokia. The company had launched the 808 PureView phone last year, that featured a 41-megapixel snapper and created a lot of buzz. Next in the list was Lumia 920 with PureView technology that focused on low-light imaging.

The Finnish handset maker had unveiled the phone at an event in New York, in July.
