It could be lights out for the Nokia Lumia 1020 on September 14th
If you have been pining for the Nokia Lumia 1020, with its 41MP PureView camera, you might be running out of time to make the purchase. According to serial leaker evleaks, the Nokia Lumia 1020 will hit end of life status on September 14th. The phone is about a year old and no subsequent model has yet to top the number of MP on its rear snapper. 

While the phone has a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 CPU and an Adreno 225 GPU under the hood, the model could use some refreshing in that area. It does offer 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage, although it does not feature a microSD slot. Another part of the Nokia Lumia 1020 that could stand to be upgraded is the battery, which has a capacity of 2000mAh.

It is possible that Nokia has a new model on the way to replace the Nokia Lumia 1020. If evleaks is right, Microsoft could be unveiling such a device, possibly around the IFA show in early September.

I really find this hard to believe. Just when I was starting to enjoy my 1020 with Developers' WP 8.1 preview, then this news comes along. Why MS? If you can't produce 1020s anymore, then at least continue its support.. Gah!

It may be end of manufacture, but support is still what MS/Nokia promised. If you need another one you can buy it now before Sept. I think by then there will be a replacement (with Xenon)but I don't think there will be another 41 Megapixel beast. I expected this and and am using my 1020 carefully(Only when I am traveling and expecting to click photos) otherwise its a 925 for me.

There will still be support, at least until January 2015 (18 months). They just won't be producing it anymore.

But it isnt just the 1020! The 1320 and 1520 also got major price cuts of almost 70%. What does this mean? Is microsoft throwing in the towel? Will microsoft go for android?

I still prefer my nokia 808 PureView than this...

The 808 Pureview is better as a camera, the 1020 is better as a phone.

Meanwhile any Android flagship is a much better phone than both and a DLSR or even mid-high end point and shoot is a better camera than pureview.

Tell me an Android smart phone which can take better photos than the Nokia 1020.

The 1020 has unnatural colors, but it did better on low light condition.

I pray the successor will actually have specs worth noting. Along with slim bezel and OIS of course.

This has better than nexus 4 specs, and a price to match

The Nexus 4 has a quad core processor and Adreno 320, so no the Lumia 1020 does not have better specs.

He definitely means that camera is better...

Well the camera isn't the only spec is it?

Slim bezel on a Windows phone? Maybe.
Slim Bezels on a Nokia phone? Never.

Nokia has maintained a distinctly Nokia look with that black ring. I say keep a good amount of bezel, it would be like asking samsung to make a phone without that handy dandy home button :-)

That button's gonna die. As long as iPhone hold to that button theres no way Samsung gonna let go of that handy dandy home button.

It means production of 1020 will stop but not support.

This can't be true because the 1020 is getting WP 8.1, and it's also getting GDR1, and GDR2 updates to 8.1... We'd be lucky to get GDR1 by September, so the 1020 will be supported for at least months after that with GDR updates....

not especially, but can you name a single Android phone that will get security updates through until 3 years after it's release? That would be if it stayed at Windows phone 8, but it gets the update to 8.1 as well, for which support ends 2017. Same goes for the bottom end Lumia 520, it too gets the Windows phone 8.1 update and subsequent security updates.
