It looks like those in Singapore are due to get the Nokia Lumia 1020. The phone was just announced for the region by Nokia with a due date October 5th. The 41 MP camera phone will be available at Nokia Stores and Nokia Solutions Partners, and comes bundled free with the Nokia Camera Grip.

All three carriers, including Singtel, Starhub and M1 will also be selling the Lumia 1020, which should fetch S$999.  For distribution, that’s a fairly big win for Nokia as they have seemingly been able to coerce multiple carriers in each country to grab the highly rated smartphone for their customers (well, except in the US where AT&T has an exclusive). It certainly gives customers an advantage as it means people won’t feel the pressure to switch operators to get their favorite phone.

Singapore has been doing well this year with Nokia Windows Phones, as they have recently nabbed the Lumia 625 and Lumia 925. Picking up the Lumia 1020 will only accelerate Windows Phone growth in the region.
