Nokia shows off its new hardware with music video shot entirely on Lumia 1520

It was done just a few weeks ago by Ellie Goulding with the Nokia Lumia 1020, and now it has been done again by Niila with the new Nokia Lumia 1520. The phone is yet to be released, but its audio and video recording abilities are shown off to great effect in a music video shot entirely and solely on the 1520.

This may be an artist you’re less familiar with than Ellie Goulding, but the video is an excellent showcase for the capabilities of the latest handset from Nokia. After a couple of false starts, the handset was made available for pre-order a couple of days ago, and the video gives buyers an idea of the quality of footage they can expect to be able to record.

Whatever your musical taste may be — and the song “Bottle of Wine” is not going to be for everyone — there is no getting away from the fact that this video looks great. Shot in full HD at 30fps, it’s hardly surprising. Nokia is no stranger to great quality cameras in its devices, and it looks like the 1520 is no different in this regard.

It’s not just the video quality that is impressive — remember this is recorded on a phone… it’s easy to forget this “minor” detail — the sound is also pretty top notch too. Connect to a decent set of speakers and crank up the volume!
