With all above power the Nokia Lumia 1020 is gonna cost you as much as PKR 82,500/- Now it really depends on what you are looking for. For a real photography purpose I would sure recommend to get one if you want that with such a huge price tag. Waiting for the price to drop down would also be a good idea. I, for my hobby of photography, would definitely get one but will also wait for the price drop.

We have covered the 41 megapixel camera smartphone from Nokia since the global release. We believe it’s a late release in Pakistan when higher versions of the Lumia family have already been launched globally. However the Lumia 1020 can keep its way parallel to the other devices for being a niche in its category of photography.
