Nokia’s Lumia with 41MP camera available in Kenya


Nokia launched the Nokia Lumia 1020 in Kenya at the scenic helipad of the KICC – perfect venue to showcase the camera specs of the 1020.

The Lumia 1020 takes sharp images possible by any digital camera thanks to Nokia’s innovative PureView technology, including a second generation 41 megapixel sensor, ZEISS optics with six lenses and optical image stabilization – allowing people to capture, edit and share photos and videos of professional quality.

“Kenyan consumers have embraced the Nokia Lumia range of smartphones,” says Bruce Howe, General Manager of Nokia East Africa. “Since we launched the first Lumia’s based on Windows Phone 8 earlier this year, the combination of beautiful design and differentiated software experiences has resonated with our consumers. Tonight, we take that passion for technology innovation one step further by welcoming the Nokia Lumia 1020 to the local market, a giant leap forward in mobile imaging”.

Using a new application called Nokia Pro Camera, the Nokia Lumia 1020 reinvents zoom, enabling people to shoot first and then zoom later to discover and rediscover stories that contain more detail than the eye can see. With a beautiful interface that visually demonstrates how settings will affect the final photo or video, Nokia Pro Camera simplifies features usually reserved for professional cameras and teaches people how to take better photos.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is the most versatile digital camera available. Its unique dual capture feature simultaneously takes a high resolution 38 megapixel image for endless editing opportunities, and creates a 5 megapixel picture at the same time that is easy to share to social networks with Windows Phone 8.

The success of Lumia in the local market can also be attributed to the support it has enjoyed from local operators. The Lumia 1020 will be available exclusively at Safaricom shops for two months in a deal that will see customers get internet bundles and airtime when they buy the 1020 at Ksh79,999 including accessories.
