Nokia Lumia 1520 shoots at 5-megapixel and 16-megapixel resolutions simultaneously
Earlier today we reported about a whole new bunch of photos confirming a number of features on the upcoming Nokia Lumia 1520. Following this The Verge has added a couple of more photos, which show the phablet’s camera in action. According to the photos, the Lumia 1520′s 20-megapixel camera will shoot photos in 16-megapixel and 5-megapixel resolutions simultaneously. This would produce a full 16-megapixel photo from where users can make 100 percent crops or use an oversampled 5-megapixel resolution photo if they want to use the entire photo.
Nokia had implemented the same feature in the Lumia 1020 where the camera had a 41-megapixel sensor but gave users an option to click photos in 34-megapixel (16:9 aspect ratio) or 38-megapixels (4:3 aspect ratio). Apart from saving a photo in full resolution, the phone would also save an oversampled 5-megapixel photo with greater details. The logic behind the 5-megapixel photo being that it is the size of an A3 sheet for users who want to print photos or approximately 2MB in size which uploads on Facebook without Facebook’s compression that leads to loss of details.
So far, the Lumia 1520 is expected to come with a 6-inch 1080p display packed in a unibody design, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory and microSD support, a nano-SIM card slot and Microsoft’s GDR3 update.
