Nokia Lumia 1020 press render leaks, Pro Cam app in tow

The Nokia “EOS” – a Windows Phone packing the same 41-megapixel sensor found on the 808 PureView – has been leaked several times, and @evleaks even revealed recently that the phone would be known as the Lumia 1020. Now the Twitter leakster is back, showing us the clearest picture of the handset yet in what looks to be a leaked press render.

It isn’t too exciting, though, as the Lumia 1020 clearly follows the same design guidelines as other recent Nokia Windows Phones. Still, there is one piece of information to take away: the phone will come with a new “Nokia Pro Cam” app. Previous leaks have dropped the name and functionality before, with the app reportedly taking advantage of that PureView sensor by offering up 11x digital zoom, anti-shake, and manual focus.

Still, it’s good to know that the app will definitely be included on the Lumia 1020, and what would be the point of a high-resolution sensor if you didn’t have the proper software to take advantage of it? As for when we’ll see the Lumia 1020, Nokia is holding an event on July 11th in New York City that should herald the official announcement of the phone. The company has certainly been dropping hints that suggest so, anyway. We’ll be there at the event to bring you all the news as it happens, but in the meantime, read our Nokia EOS rumour roundup to bring yourself up to speed.
