Lumia 1020's detachable camera grip, which reportedly made an appearance before FCC, is no unicorn. Nokia is serious about offering such an accessory, that transforms the mostly candybar-looking device into something the shape of a point-and-shoot. Grip is vital to a good camera, because even with stellar sensors, optics, and post-processing, everything could be moot without proper ergonomics.
Nokia's camera grip wraps itself around the Lumia 1020, forming a layered bezel around the piano-black one that frames the screen. With the grip attached, the plastic frame levels itself with the otherwise protruding black bezel, even if it's still bulging out a bit. On the business end of the grip, a mostly rubberized surface, with a more pronounced rubber portion where you park your fingertips, complete the package. There's little information if the grip adds a tripod mount, because that would be perfect. Sleepless nights for Galaxy S4 Zoom.
