Nokia has confirmed that the recently-launched Lumia 1020 will be available in the UK from Sept. 12 onwards.
The Finnish company launched the Windows Phone 8 (WP8)-powered handset in July this year and the smartphone is already available in the U.S. and some other regions.
Nokia recently confirmed in a tweet that the handset will be available in the UK from Sept. 12. However, the company didn't announce any details regarding the pricing of the Lumia 1020 in the country.
The company has launched a number of WP8 top-end smartphones this year, including the Lumia 928 and the Lumia 925 in May and the Lumia 1020 in July. However, not all handsets are available in the UK. The Lumia 928 is still not listed on the Nokia UK website and the company has not announced its plans to launch the handset in the country.
UK retailer Phones4U has already started taking pre-registrations for the Lumia 1020. UK carrier O2 has also advertised the handset with a "coming soon" label for both contracts and for pay-as-you-go subscribers.
The high-end Nokia Lumia 1020 is one of the best WP8 smartphones currently available on the market. One of the key features that attracts customers is the presence of a whopping 41-megapixel PureView primary camera. The handset may appeal to buyers looking for a top-end smartphone with top-notch camera capabilities.
That Nokia Lumia 1020 features a 4.5-inch AMOLED PureMotion HD+ display with 1,280 x 768 pixels resolution and a pixel density of 332 pixels per inch (ppi). A 1.5-GHz, dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, Adreno 225 GPU and 2GB of RAM power the latest Lumia smartphone. The Lumia 1020 further packs a 2,000mAh battery and has a 41-megapixel primary camera with LED and Xenon flash, as well as Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). The handset is also equipped with a 1.2-megapixel secondary camera.
Nokia launched the handset in 32/64GB storage options but the 64GB version is still not available in the U.S. We will have to wait and see if Nokia launches the Lumia 1020 with both storage options in the UK.
