This morning, Nokia finally pulled the wraps off of the Lumia 1520, a device with a massive 6-inch 1080P display. But besides the great display, the Lumia 1520 also features an outstanding PureView camera with a 20 MP sensor. In addition, the algorithms for the camera app have been improved for better noise reduction, tone mapping and oversampling when compared to older Lumias. We’ll have more on that shortly in our Juha Alakarhu interview.

So how good is the Lumia 1520’s camera? Even though Nokia wasn’t keen on publishing samples, possibly due to some last minute tweaks needed, we have a handful to show off the camera’s prowess. Our off the cuff analysis? Pictures were very sharp with improved noise reduction over the 1020 and other Lumias. We really like what we saw in terms of image quality and especially the speed in processing, thanks to that quad core processor.

Don’t worry though, we hear that a lot of the image quality improvements are coming to all PureView cameras with the Lumia Black firmware.

Remember, the 1520 isn’t just another Lumia camera, but rather it improves upon things, even in optical image stabilization (OIS). We’ll have a sample of that a bit later, but for now, can check out the following images and we’ll let you decide.
