Nokia’s much awaited 41-megapixel Windows Phone 8 device seems to be just around the corner.
Today, the persistent leaker, @evleaks has posted press image of Nokia Lumia 1020 on his Twitter account. The AT&T logo at the top left corner of the device suggests that the Lumia 1020, internally known as Nokia EOS would exclusive to AT&T.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 is said to be a successor of Nokia 808 PureView and will feature the same 41-megapixel PureView camera. However, the leaked image shows the front side of the device only, thus the high quality camera is not viewable. According to the previous rumors, the flagship will have a small hump on the back where the camera would be placed. Nokia also seems to be working on a new Nokia Pro Cam application, that appears to be designed to take advantage of the 41-megapixel camera.
Moreover, the Nokia Lumia 1020 will come with a 4.5-inch AMOLED display having a WXGA (768 x 1280 pixel) resolution, a 41-megapixel primary camera with Xenon flash and as far as the storage is concerned, it will have 32GB of internal storage with no support for SD card.
Reportedly, the smartphone will run Windows Phone 8 operating system with Nokia’s upcoming “Amber” firmware update that will also include the new Smart Camera application, announced back in May along with the Nokia Lumia 925. The application allows to take a burst of 10 photos of smaller size than the regular one, in order to pick the best shot.
The Finnish mobile manufacturer is expected to unveil its new flagship during the Zoom Reinvented event which is going to be held in New York on July 11th at 11am EDT.
