Lots of Nokia Lumia 1020 videos with plants and dogs posted on YouTube

Tomorrow, Nokia will almost certainly unveil its 41 megapixel Windows Phone device, the Lumia 1020, for the first time during a New York City press event. However, there's been quite a few leaks about the smartphone already, including pictures taken with the phone's camera by Joe Belfiore, the corporate vice president at Microsoft for Windows Phone.

Now a YouTube user who goes by the handle Nokia2928 has posted up a lot (and we do mean a lot) of videos on his account that he claims were taken with the Lumia 1020. There's close to 100 clips with the "Nokia lumia 1020 video test" label on the account at the moment.

One set of videos were apparently taken in a park when some kind of dog show was taking place. Here's an clip with a cute shaggy dog that is getting some grooming from its owner.

The other set of videos shows extreme close ups of plants and flowers, perhaps from the same park. Here's just one of those clips, which shows a ton of detail when the camera zooms in on the plant.

The videos really need to be seen in full 1080p resolution in order to view the amount of detail that the alleged Lumia 1020 camera can get in video mode. We should learn even more about the camera during Nokia's press event Thursday.

One thing of note -- the last "Lumia 800 Video Test" he posted has some very strange cuts, and at least one point during the video you can clearly see that he's using a camcorder.

And comments are disabled on that particular video.

Makes me skeptical of the whole set...

I'm skeptical because if that is the 1020 then it's just amazing. The OIS seems to work far better in that device. Again, taking this with a shaker full of salt. Tomorrow we'll see the real deal.

This isn't video footage from the Lumia 1020. In the second video you can clearly hear optical zoom. This is most likely a decent compact camera.

Phones sometimes simulate camera noises when in use. Could be that.

Listen again. There is the sound of a plane going past and another buzzing noise from the background. It's probably a combination of them that you heard.
