After losing much its market share to rival manufacturers in recent years, Finland based smartphone manufacturer Nokia has recently enjoyed a return to form following the success of its flagship Lumia 920 device.
The phone was recently followed up by the Lumia 925 as the company’s latest flagship model, but there has also been talk of another high end device from the manufacturer hitting the market soon. In recent months, there has been a lot of speculation and plenty of rumours about a device called the Nokia EOS, which was recently revealed to be called the Nokia Lumia 1020 when it hits the market.
It is currently suspected that this device will packs plenty of impressive features like a dual-core processor, ClearBlack AMOLED display and Windows Phone 8 operating system. However, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is set to stand out on account of its camera. It has long been rumoured that this phone will utilise a 41 megapixel PureView camera with Carl Zeiss optics, suggesting that Nokia is keen to compete in the high-end camera phone market, where it will go head to head with devices like the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom and upcoming Sony Honami. More news on the rumoured Nokia Lumia 1020 is available on our site, with price comparisons on Nokia Lumia 925 contracts.
A Twitter user called @evleaks was the first to reveal that the Nokia EOS will actually be called the Lumia 1020 when released. The same source has also recently posted a leaked image of the device. The phone follows the same design language of previous Lumia handsets, boasting the same stylish design, premium materials and bold touch screen. The source has provided plenty of reliable information about unreleased smartphone models in the past, so given its track record there is no reason to doubt the authenticity of the leaked image.
Nokia will be holding a press event in New York on July 11, where it is expected that the Lumia 1020 will be unveiled. We expect to hear much more news about this phone as we near its announcement, so we will keep you posted when we hear more.
