The Lumia 1020 was released back in 2013 which means that we should be able to expect a successor in the near future. Well thanks to a recently leaked photo, we caught a glimpse of the alleged device which has been given the Lumia 1030 moniker. Now given that the focus of the Lumia 1020 was its camera, we can only imagine the same will apply to its successor.
Thanks to a new report from Nokia Power User, additional details about the upcoming handset might have been revealed. This is according to one of their tipsters who has informed them that the upcoming Lumia 1030 will pack a massive 50MP camera in its body, effectively giving it a higher megapixel count than its predecessor.
Their source also revealed that the camera’s sensor will be manufactured by Toshiba and unlike the Lumia 1020, it will not sport a Xenon flash but will feature a 4th-gen short pulse LED flash instead. The mechanical shutter from the Lumia 1020 will not be present in the Lumia 1030 either.
In fact this seems to be more or less in line with the leaked image, but then again this is assuming the image is real to begin with. Now megapixels don’t always matter and don’t necessarily contribute to better photos, but we have to admit we are curious as to the improvements Microsoft will be making to the phone in general. Until we hear otherwise, be sure to take it with a grain of salt for now.
