Lumia 1020 Comes with Free Camera Grip When Purchased Through Microsoft

The Nokia Lumia 1020, which the company unveiled yesterday at a press event, boasts the best camera in the smartphone market, easily outclassing Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Zoom and anything else from Apple, HTC or the rest of the industry. But if you’re considering buying the new handset due to its powerful camera you might as well pick up Nokia’s Camera Grip case, which helps turn the device into a full-fledged digital camera.

The Lumia 1020 already costs $300 (that’s with a contract) so shelling out an extra $80 for a case that adds improved grip and a shutter button may be tough to wrap your head around. Thankfully, you don’t have to. As long as you buy the new smartphone directly from Microsoft (as opposed to AT&T or a third-party retailer), the company will throw in the case for free.

Nokia’s new smartphone boasts a 4.5-inch WXGA 1280 x 768-pixel display at 332 ppi and runs Windows Phone 8 out of the box. It also comes equipped with 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 41-megapixel main camera and 2-megapixel front-facing camera, a 2000 mAh battery, NFC, and comes in black, white or yellow. Pre-orders for the device won’t launch until July 16, so  you’ve still got a few days to decide whether you want to order the new smartphone and score a free Camera Grip.
