Nokia's Lumia 1020 41-megapixel smartphone has been available in the states since late July, but our friends across the pond have had to wait until today to get their hands on the uber-camera device. Today, TweakTown's Johannes Knapp was on hand at Nokia's UK launch event and got a chance to sit down and go hands-on with the Lumia 1020.

The Lumia 1020 by Nokia features a dual-core QUALCOMM Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, and a 4.5-inch 1280x768 AMOLED HD+ display. A 41-megapixel PureView camera resides on the back that features a Carl Zeiss lens with an aperture of f/2.2. A real Xenon flash is also on-hand to take care of all of your low light issues.
