Nokia’s has yet released another phone with a big camera. Since the 808 PureView with it’s revolutionary 41-megapixel sensor, we never seen another beast phone with a big camera, that’s why we thought it’d be fun to let this Lumia 1020 meet its glorious pixel-loving forerunners.
We talk of course about: the 808 PureView and the N8 that bucked the trend of phone photography during their time.
In terms of sensors, the Lumia 1020 comes with a new 1/1.5-inch, 41-megapixel BSI sensor, which is smaller than the 808’s 1/1.2-inch, non-BSI offering of the same resolution. Still, both chips are understandably larger than the N8’s 1/1.83-inch, 12-megapixel sensor, which may sound less exciting but was well ahead of its time.
And needless to say, the Symbian-powered 808 PureView didn’t come with as many goodies compared to its Windows Phone cousin — even the newer lens is faster with six elements instead of five.
