Nokia Lumia 1020 Confirmed

Nokia has a press conference scheduled to take place later this week where it is widely expected to unveil the new Lumia 1020 smartphone. Carrying forward Nokia’s tradition of adding a more impressive camera to each new flagship Windows Phone along with a minor bump in specs, the Lumia 1020 is rumored to include a 41-megapixel PureView camera with a xenon flash. While nothing is official until it’s announced, Microsoft’s Windows Phone boss recently published photos to his Flickr account that contain the name “Nokia Lumia 1020” in the associated EXIF data. Earlier rumors suggested the phone will include a 4.5-inch display with 720p resolution and a polycarbonate case, and images of the unannounced phone were published last week. BGR will be on hand reporting live this Thursday from Nokia’s press conference.
