Difference between Nokia Lumia 1020 and HTC One

Key difference: The Lumia 1020 is the newest flagship phone by Nokia. It features a 41 MP camera and runs on Windows Mobile 8.  The HTC One is the flagship phone of the HTC Corporation. It was launched in March 2013.

Nokia announced the launch of its newest flagship phone on July 23, 2013. It was the Lumia 1020, the phone with a 41 MP camera. The Lumia 1020 succeeds the Nokia 808 PureView. The device comes with a 32 GB internal memory and a 2GB RAM. It is run on Windows Mobile 8. 

Obviously, the most highlighted feature of the Lumia 1020 is the 41 MP camera with PureView technology. PureView utilizes a pixel oversampling technique, which reduces an image taken at full resolution into a lower resolution picture while maintaining a higher definition and light sensitivity. It also allows for lossless zoom.

Due to this the phone is marketed towards amateur photographers and shutterbugs. However, also because of the camera, the phone is classified as a niche device, which is why is pricier than most high-end smartphones. A camera case accessory for the phone is also available, which turns the phone into a point and shoot camera. The case also allows the phone to be attached to a tripod.

In February, the company announced the launch of its new flagship phone, the HTC One. HTC One is the successor of the HTC One X and is expected to be superior than its predecessor in terms of hardware design and software design. It also includes a unique camera implementation.

In terms of hardware, HTC One sports a 4.7 inch Super LCD3, with Full HD1080p, 468 PPI and Corning Gorilla Glass 2. The HTC one comes with Android v4.1.2 Jelly Bean that is upgradable to v4.2.2. The case is an all-aluminum frame with an antenna built into its backing. It includes a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, Adreno 320 GPU and 2 GB DDR2. The phone is available with non-expandable, 32 or 64GB internal capacity.

The main feature of the phone was the new pixilation system that is opted for in the primary camera of the phone, which provides each pixel size of 2.0 µm and sensor size of 1/3'. The One also includes a new camera app known as ‘Zoe’, which records a short video alongside every photo taken and allows the resulting photos and videos to be automatically combined and synchronized with music to produce a multimedia presentation known as a Zoe.
