Nokia’s next big, highly anticipated launch is set to be the Lumia 1020 complete with PureView styled camera. It’s in the news again and this time quite a bit of detail has been leaked. What seems to be a detailed Spec Sheet of the 1020 has made it out with some interesting additions. First off let’s talk display – we’re looking at a 4.5-inch (Nokia doesn’t seem to want to get to the 5 inch mark and that’s a good thing) Gorilla Glass 3 encased touch screen of the AMOLED HD+ variety. It sports a 1280 x 768 pixel resolution with ClearBlack technology to make it easier to read in bright conditions. There’s also mention of the display being totally usable with or without gloves (the non-specialised kind and) or just your fingernails.

Under the hood we’re expected to find a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor coupled with 2GB or RAM. Storage capacity for the 1020 is 32GB, there’s no information on lower capacity variants yet or the presence of a memory card slot for expansion. 7GB of SkyDrive cloud storage is still on the cards however. As we mentioned before, a 41 MP shooter complete with Xenon Flash and LED (for video), backside-illuminated sensor and optical image stabilisation technology is on board. This ensures 1080p video recording capabilities at 30fps. Nokia’s various lenses will be included I’m sure and so will the new Nokia Pro Cam app that we talked about a little while ago. A forward facing 1.2MP camera is also included.

Like the last high-end Windows based smartphone from Nokia, the 1020 will be quite well equipped for connectivity. Ranging from GSM 850/900/1800/1900, WCDMA 2100/1900/900/850, LTE bands 1/3/7/20/8, HSPA+ DL Cat 24, dual-carrier 42.1mbps/UL Cat 5.76mbps, the 1020 will also feature GPS (with global HERE Maps and HERE Drive+, free HERE transit for free), WiFi, NFC (SIM based security)and Bluetooth 3.0, and wireless charging for the 2000 mAh battery. To better call quality, dual microphones are employed and together with Nokia Rich Recording technology audio recorded on this handset could very well be distortion free even in loud environments.

Weighing in at 158 grams, we can expect the Nokia Lumia 1020 to follow suite with others in the family and be made available in a slew of funky colours including black, yellow, and white. No word on the price just yet.
