Nokia Takes Smartphone Cameras to Whole New Level
41-Megapixel Nokia Lumia 1020 launches exclusively on Telecom’s mobile network

Rich and professional quality images can now be captured on a smartphone thanks to the launch of the 41-megapixel Nokia Lumia 1020, available on the Telecom Smartphone Network today.

Exclusive to Telecom, the Nokia Lumia 1020 boasts a 41-megapixel camera sensor, optical image stabilisation and a high-resolution zoom that allows its user to capture images rich in detail and sharp in clarity.
