The camera will allow users to capture high resolution 38MP image and edit it to create 5MP image that can be shared easily.
Finland-based electronics giant Nokia has unveiled its new Nokia Lumia 1020 with a 41MP sensor as part of its effort to claw back its dominance in smartphone.
The sensor technology, which features ZEISS optics with six physical lenses and optical image stabilisation, combines with a new application called Nokia Pro Camera to allow the users to capture, edit and share photos as well as videos.
Using the new integrated feature called dual capture, the Nokia Lumia 1020 allows users to capture high resolution 38MP images and edit them to create 5MP images, which can be shared easily.
Nokia president and CEO, Stephen Elop, said that the company wants to take people on a journey from capturing pictures to recording and sharing their lives.
"The Nokia Lumia 1020 will bring new meaning to pictures and continues to strengthen Nokia’s leadership in imaging," Elop added.
The new smartphone is powered by the 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and runs on the Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating system.
Nokia Lumia 1020 comes with 4.5inch AMOLED WXGA display, 2.5D sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass 3, PureMotion HD+, ClearBlack, high brightness mode, sunlight readability and super sensitive touch.
The 41Mp camera is accompanied with Xenon flash, while the device also features an HD 1.2MP wide angle front facing camera.
Nokia is planning to launch the mobile on 26 July 2013 at a price of $299.99 starting from the US and will also introduce the new Nokia Camera Grip that has a tripod mount and supports the phone in using the camera features.
