The super sizzling Nokia Lumia smartphone which was unveiled a couple of months back and is said to have the best camera among all the smartphones available, is all set to take the center stage in Indian tech arena. Yes, you guessed it right! The talk is about the 41MP camera phone - Nokia Lumia 1020.
GizBot has just got a confirmation from an inside source, that Lumia 1020 powered by Windows Phone 8 will be launched in India on or around October 15 in a Delhi event. Apart from this information, nothing has been revealed by the source, related to the price and release date. However, with Samsung, Sony and LG planning to launch their big ticked handsets in India around the same time, the Nokia launch date looks to be quite authentic.
Relatively, GizBot tried to find the answer on our own, and thankfully, succeeded to know some facts on the release date, price and some other interesting points. One of GizBot's trusted source in the retail industry has revealed that Nokia Lumia 1020 will be available in India from October 30 and Nokia might launch Lumia 1020 as "Nokia 909" in the country.
The source was quoted saying, "I went through a training recently to get an overview about the upcoming Nokia 909. Nokia 909 is the same phone having a 41MP camera. Due to some certification issues Nokia is set to bring 1020 as"909", here in India. He further told us "Nokia 909 is coming to India on October 30". He concluded all by saying, "wait for at least a month."
So, why would Nokia launch Lumia 1020 in India as Lumia 909?
Let's get into the reason. Before the coming of Lumia 1020, it was constantly said that Nokia would announce 909 in the market. The name "Nokia 909 "syncs well with its predecessor. The Nokia 808 PureView had a 41MP camera sensor at the rear back. The device was not received well internationally (including India).
Simultaneously, we also found some proof on the Nokia website on the company's FAQ page. Take a look at the screen shot below.
Clearly, Nokia FAQ (Frequently asked questions) stated that RM-87 x/Nokia 909/Lumia 1020, are nothing, but different marketing name of smartphone having a 41MP camera. We contacted Nokia to confirm on the Nokia 909 model name, but we did not get a confirmation.
However, one thing is for sure, Nokia Lumia 1020 launch event is definitely scheduled to launch around October 15.
