Unsurprisingly, the web’s been buzzing with talk of the Nokia Lumia 1020 since it was launched in New York last week. It seems like practically everyone who’s read about it knows exactly what they’ll do with it when they get it. However, if you plan to fit the Nokia Lumia 1020 into your life, these extras will help you get even more out of it: five Nokia Gear accessories to keep your new smartphone held firm, rocking loud and powered up.
Hold it steady like a pro
One of the new features that we’re most excited about (and we aren’t alone) is the Nokia Lumia 1020’s incredible 41 megapixel camera sensor. You’re going to capture astonishing detail in your photographs, with your smartphone’s six lenses and next generation Optical Image Stabilisation working to make sure every pixel counts.
The Camera Grip for Nokia Lumia 1020 will give you an even more professional control over your images. You’ll hold your smartphone like a SLR, giving you more confidence that each shot is framed just right. It comes with a standard tripod fitting, so you can jump into a group shot yourself, or to capture a long exposure shot of stars streaking across the sky.
And for peace of mind on your photography expeditions, the grip includes a built in battery pack – enough to boost your Nokia Lumia 1020 with power to take another 285 photographs or 48 minutes of video.
What’s a great way to enjoy over 22 million free tracks from Nokia Music and listen to your Rich Recording videos? The tangled free Nokia Purity Pro Wireless Stereo Headset by Monster, that’s what. When you aren’t using it, it folds in snuggly on itself. As soon as you’re ready to listen, just unfold and your headset powers up and connects automatically to your Nokia Lumia 1020 via Bluetooth or NFC. Their super comfy fit and amazing Active Noise Cancellation keeps your listening experience natural and crystal clear.
Power up fast
If you’re planning to use your Nokia Lumia 1020 as much as we know we will, you won’t want to be slowed down waiting for it to charge up. The Nokia Universal Fast USB Charger makes sure you charge up faster than ever – more than a third faster for the first 30 minutes on an empty battery.
Power up anywhere
Take your power with you with the Nokia Universal Portable USB Charger DC-18, ready to top up your charge wherever you need it. It’s lightweight and at 57x57mm it’ll slip easily into your pocket or bag. The battery display on the front makes sure you always know how much charge you have left.
Power up anytime
Imagine a world where you can throw your Lumia 1020 down and it will instantly charge up. A fantastic pipe dream a few years ago, this is now a very real possibility thanks to wireless charging tech. Happily, the Nokia Lumia 1020 makes full use of this with the Nokia Wireless Charging Cover. Clip it onto your smartphone body and use it with one of Nokia’s ever growing selection of wireless charging options (our current favourite is the JBL PowerUp speaker) for a very chilled out power up.
So what feature of the Nokia Lumia 1020 will you use the most? And what single accessory would help you do that even better
