Nokia Lumia 1020 pictured in leaked render, specs confirmed

There’s only a few days left until Nokia finally unveils the Lumia 1020, the alleged 41-megapixel Windows Phone, but WPCentral has seemingly scooped all the details – and a new render – of the phone ahead of the event. The leaked press render shows the phone in all its glory, giving us a great look at both the front and back.

It looks exactly like previous leaks as well, so you can expect a phone that has a very similar design to the Lumia 920 but with an additional hump on the back for that 41-megapixel sensor. WPCentral managed to confirm some of the specs for the device too, with the site saying that the phone does indeed have optical image stabilisation.

And as past rumours have suggested, the phone will actually take two pictures. One will be a 32-megapixel image that effectively serves as a “raw” image, while the 5-megapixel picture is designed to be shared out to friends and social networks. There’s also the option to shoot a 38-megapixel image in a 4:3 aspect ratio. The Pro Camera app will have granular controls for the sensor too, allowing users to set ISO, white balance, and shutter speed.

In addition, WPCentral says that the handset will have 2GB of RAM, a curious detail considering that currenty flagship Windows Phones max out at 1GB. The Lumia 1020 will also reportedly have 32GB of storage, NFC, an FM radio, and the option to use a wireless charging backplate. The site closes by saying that the phone is expected to go on sale on July 22nd in the United States, but it’s not entirely clear if the device will see a UK release.
