Nokia Lumia 1020: 41 MP Wonder

If you think that only 13 and even 20 MP cameras are possible in a phone, then Lumia 1020 will make you rethink your notion. It packs massive 41 MP inside a phone. What’s more interesting is that it feels more like a phone, rather than a camera (in case of Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom) with protruding lens. Not only hardware, Nokia has developed Pro Camera app to complement the camera, allowing advanced settings and oversampling as well.

While Nokia Lumia 1020 has been officially launched, company hasn’t officially revealed its pricing and will be available to buy from October 11th.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3: 3rd Time Lucky

It was Samsung which created this whole new category of phablets. Even after two years, the series remain strong as ever with Note 3 carrying forward this legacy. The Note 3 is same as Note 2, yet quite different. The biggest difference doesn’t come by seeing the front, but the back which is now made of faux-leather stitched at the sides. It not only provides a great grip to the user’s hands, but also gives it a premium look.

Get your hands on Note 3 for Rs. 49,900!
