Back in 2013, Nokia introduced the Lumia 1020 smartphone that was touted to be a revolutionary in terms of imaging optics. It was projected among the best camera-centric smartphones of last year. Unfortunately, it didn't make a huge impact on consumers and critics alike.
There has been a lot of speculation lately on what Microsoft Mobile will do for its next smartphone, frequently dubbed the Lumia 1030. Various rumor sites have suggested Microsoft will reveal a 5-inch handset with a 41MP rear-facing camera.
Lumia 1020 In Pictures
Earlier this year speculations were high that we might get to see the Lumia 1020 successor. Now, some new pictures of the Lumia 1030 have surfaced on the net claiming to show the Lumia 1030.
The alleged images have been taken from a Chinese auction site and they show a sliver handset that somewhat remind you of the original Lumia 1020. The purported handset is said to be crafted out of the aluminum/polycarbonate materials.
According to reports, the device is listed as the Nokia RM-1052, and is clearly meant to be a prototype handset. This very handset is also said to sport a 5-inch 1080p FHD screen, a quad-core processor and a modest 2GB of RAM.
Sure, one can't confirm the authenticity of the given handset.
However, going by the form factor, it gives rise to the speculation that the handset could be the rumored Nokia "McLaren", which was allegedly scrapped back in July. Initially, it was expected to come with "3D Touch" technology, a feature that would bring support for Kinect-like motion gestures to the forthcoming premium Windows Phone.
Well, it would be nice to see the long rumored successor to the Lumia 1020 goes on sale soon. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
