After more than a month since its release in the West, Nokia has finally brought their latest Windows Phone 8 powered Lumia toy to India. Dubbed the Lumia 1020, this new flagship is reminiscent of the 2012 flagship, the Lumia 920, but improves on almost every front.
To start off with, you get that enviable 41 MP PureView camera sensor, and this time without even the massive hump which can be found at the back of the Nokia 808 (Symbian Belle powered Smartphone on which Nokia debuted their PureView camera technology back in 2010).
Anyhow, you will be able to purchase the Lumia 1020 in India starting October 11th. Unfortunately, Nokia didn't reveal the final price for the device. Our sources tipped us saying that the company will announce it just a day before launch (i.e. October 10th). The reason behind this is the fluctuating $ to Rupee rate. If we get unlucky, and if the device is indeed $800 unlocked, it might cost nearly Rs. 50,000 in India (that's more than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3). Indian buyers do get treated to 1 year of complimentary hardware insurance, a feature which is exclusive to the sub-continent.
