CNET News Video: Nokia unveils Lumia 1020 with 41-megapixel camera

2:37 /

At a press event in New York, Nokia shows off its brand-new Windows 8 phone with a powerful Lytro-like camera. It will be available on AT&T in the U.S. in late July.

-Ladies and gentlemen, the Nokia Lumia 1020. Take a look at that. All right. With the Lumia 1020, pictures will mean more to you. You'll see things with this device that you've never seen before. You'll get closer than ever before, and you'll discover and rediscover new stories. We've done this by creating an entirely new ultra high resolution 41-megapixel, backside illuminated sensor. As a result, what you get are the smartest, sharpest best smartphone pictures possible. Take a look at these pictures I took with three different smartphones. I did it in these lighting conditions in the back corner of the room about 12 hours ago in this room. First, I took a picture of Yohann and Christina jumping using a Samsung Galaxy S4 automatic settings flash. I thought that's not so good. So now, let's try, well-- I know it's a cool device, but let's try it nonetheless-- the iPhone 5. There is the image. Now, Lumia 1020 with a super fast xenon flash can freeze the motion. Take a look. See that? Isn't that amazing? Finally, you can actually use your flash. Check this out. This image, even after you take the image, zoom in same image, you can read it. Amazing level of detail. We capture one image but save two versions. One is a full resolution image for endless reframing opportunities. The other is the over-sample image that we save for sharing. As a result of these two images, takes a little bit longer to process the image than with a standard camera, but no other camera can achieve what we achieved. -I actually travelled to a small farm in Nurmijärvi in Finland, and I went to a supermarket and bought a needle, and decided to try out this camera. -They wanna see the needle. -It's here, somewhere. So, I can try zooming in. -Check that out. -Looking at these individual straws here. It's not there. We could spend quite a lot of time here. So, I will save the time here and tell you that it's actually right in the middle. -Oh. Keep going, keep going, keep going, keep going, keep going. Look at that. The eye of the needle in the haystack with the Lumia 1020.
