Nokia Explains the Lumia 1020 Build and Materials

Lumia 1020, the latest Windows Phone 8 device from Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia, is the first in the company’s Lumia series to arrive on shelves with a 41-megapixel photo snapper on the back, but it packs more than just camera capabilities, the company claims.

In a recent post on Nokia Conversations, the handset vendor took its time to talk about the build of the device, while also detailing the materials used for it, and the color options that users will enjoy. The handset will arrive on shelves in three different color variants, namely yellow, white, and black, options that represent a reflection of the people who could find the imaging capabilities of the device appealing, Nokia says. “We wanted to keep it as a focused selection of colours. It’s an approach that will appeal to camera enthusiasts who are, perhaps, used to a black, but open to a rich color like yellow,” says Jaana Beidler from Nokia Design.

In Nokia’s vision, the yellow color should prove a highly appealing choice for young users who are also interested in cutting edge technologies. “For them, the yellow is a little more energetic and expressive; it’s a unique Nokia character,” Jaana Beidler continued. Nokia also notes that all three color flavors come with a matte finish, due to the character and the quality feel that it is capable of offering over the gloss finish. The handset was also improved to be anti-fingerprint and dirt-resistant. “We looked at and tested both matt and gloss finishes. However, the matt looked and lent itself very well to the three colors,” says Jaana.

Nokia also notes that Lumia 1020 was never meant to pack the metallic stripe that Lumia 925 was launched with, although the feature was welcomed on the already available smartphone. Furthermore, the phone maker notes that the color runs through the whole polycarbonate, and is not applied after the production process, which ensures that the color doesn’t show scratches. Lumia 1020 also comes with an aluminum camera detail, with a black matte finish, while also packing Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection over the touchscreen display, which is curved at the edges so as to fit the industrial design of the device. The keys on the side are also aluminum. “The overall feel is that the Lumia 1020 is comfortable and luxurious to hold in your hand. However, it’s also designed to be tough and resistant to everyday use and abuse,” said blog post concludes.
