The Nokia Lumina 1020 has a 41-megapixel sensor

NEW YORK - Nokia unveiled a new phone with a powerful camera that promises sharper images, even in low light.

Nokia announced the new phone at an event in New York.  The company said the Lumina 1020 runs on the Microsoft Windows Phone System.

Company executives claim the phone takes sharper pictures than other camera phones and is even better than some point and shoot cameras.

It has a 41-megapixel camera.  More pixels mean more sensors for capturing the light that forms an image.

Although more expensive cameras with better lenses can take better images, those cameras aren't always with you. Nokia says the Lumia 1020 gives people the ability to take good pictures with a device they always carry.

The Lumina 1020 will be available at the end of July for $300 with a two-year contract through AT&T.
