Lumia 1020 with 41MP camera to have camera grip accessory, 3x zoom

[Update: AT&T releases video of Lumia 1020] The full specifications list for the Nokia Lumia 1020 has allegedly leaked, ahead of the company's launch event. Details about the smartphone, with a 41-megapixel camera and previously known as the Nokia EOS and tentatively called the Lumia 909, reveal that the accompanying Nokia Pro Camera app will provide simple controls for items usually used by advanced photographers, as well as Nokia Rich Recording providing distortion-free stereo audio, regardless of audio.

The specifications list picked up by Unleash the Phones states it will have a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor running at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage with 7GB of Skydrive cloud storage, and a 4.5-inch AMOLED 1280x768 display. Able to access LTE networks, it will also be able to connect over USB 2.0, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC with SIM-based security, and Wi-Fi, adds in GPS and GLONASS, and a 2,000mAh battery with wireless charging support.

The 41-megapixel PureView camera, the biggest feature of the phone, is equipped with a backside-illuminated sensor, optical image stabilization, six lens optics, and a Xenon flash with LED for video. Capable of recording 1080p video at 30 frames per second, it will offer a "high resolution" 3x zoom, autofocus, and the Nokia Smart Camera mode alongside the Pro Camera app. There will be an optional camera grip available as a separate accessory, which will offer an extra battery as a power source and a universal tripod mount.

While pricing and a release date were not provided in the leak, it is said that the Lumia 1020 will be available in yellow, white, and black color options.

[Update] A set of three videos showing off the Lumia 1020 have been released by AT&T on its YouTube page. While the videos are likely to be removed once someone notices the mistake, it does confirm that the device will be heading to the carrier at launch.
