Nokia continues with some last-minute Lumia 1020 pre-launch teasing

In a little over seventeen hours, Nokia will dim the lights at its New York City event, bring an exec or two on stage, and finally announce the Lumia 1020 (EOS/Elvis/909/whatever). We’ll be on the scene, of course, in order to get some hands-on time with this new hardware, and plan to bring you our live analysis on whatever news Nokia does end up sharing. As the hours run down, Nokia’s been trying to drum-up some last-minute interest, and has been posting some new sample images.

At least, these sure seem like 1020 sample images, due in no small part to the emphasis placed on this “reinvention” of zoom by digitally cropping an exceptionally high-res original.

You wouldn’t even know it at first, as yesterday Nokia only posted that close-up shot on the left, of the balloons alone. Only after we saw today’s follow-up, revealing just how far away those balloons really were, did we get to appreciate the impact of this demo.

If the latest rumors are true, the 1020 doesn’t just have a 41-megapixel sensor, but optical stabilization as well, making those high-res shots even sharper. Suffice it to say, we’re excited for tomorrow.
