Nokia's "Zoom Reinvented" event starts at 11 a.m. EDT Thursday in New York City. The company is expected to release its heavily rumored Nokia Lumia 1020, a 4.5-inch smartphone with 2GB of RAM and a whopping 41-megapixel camera. If you're looking for a live stream of the event, look no further.

Update: The Lumia 1020 event is over, but you can see full coverage of the event and a list of specs and features for the 41-megapixel smartphone here.

To watch a live stream of today's Nokia Lumia 1020 event, visit Nokia's "Conversations" blog. Nokia will begin the live stream once the event starts at 11 a.m., and probably will let users replay the live stream on its site after the event concludes.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is expected to be unveiled at Thursday's event. The Lumia 1020 smartphone will reportedly come with a large camera lens and 41-megapixel sensor (like the previously released Nokia PureView 808). The Lumia 1020 (or PureView 909) is expected to have xenon flash, which is found mostly in digital cameras, and has a ultra-bright, quicker flash than LED. The Lumia 1020 will also contain an LED flash for extended use, such as taking videos. 

The Nokia Lumia 1020 takes pictures at 32-megapixel and 5-megapixel at the same time, with 5-megapixel shots for easy sharing on social networks that combine 7 pixels into a “super pixel” in addition to a 32-megapixel shot for storing, editing and printing.
