Nokia Lumia 1020 in red surfaces, coming to AT&T
So far, Nokia’s 41-megapixel camera superphone, the Lumia 1020, has only been made available in black, yellow and white. The other colors Nokia is known for like cyan and red have been weirdly missing so far.
If this is indeed an image of a Lumia 1020, Nokia might have just wanted to space out the launch of different color versions as a marketing strategy. What do you think the mysterious red device is?

The biggest mistake that Nokia did to this phone is pricing this too high for last year specs. Lumia 1020 should have next gen WP specs.

I'm sick and tired from so called specs!!!
If your phone runs well and suits you, why you should care about specs?
Resolution of the screen - Apple start this stupid Retina display, that is completly useless. Then smartphones became with full HD resolution on 5" screen?!? For what??? To drain battery and need quad or octa cores in CPU? Can you see the dots on your screen on 200 ppi? Yes, you can but....with spy glass!

Exactly. The way I see it, 1020 is the best phone on the market. 925, with its "last year specs" actually performs more smoothly than S4 and One and this one has double the RAM.

Why wouldn't it cause it's still not a finishef project: "still half-baked unmatured OS" why not we put the Android OS on this phone! It would lag even more!
Stop comparing a half-produced OS to a Full Android OS™
It will take Wp10 to be on par with Android. Till then wait a very
Looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time for Apps and games and updates. Cause there is no Custom Rom or Kernels nor jailbreak to help.
Listen to what the Mesia says

I'm sick of this myth. Quadcore and higher clock speed DOES NOT mean you lose battery life. Just look at the S4 LTE Advanced, it has a higher clocked S800 than the regular S4, yet gets better battery life than the normal S4 (see every article about it).
Better specs doesn't mean you give up battery life. If anything, you gain batter life from using a newer CPU and GPU architecture.
Now about screen resolution. I agree. Generally, 720p is good enough. What matters more is color accuracy, screen type, how long it lasts, durability, etc

Hey dumb ass! All Windows coming(including Nokia) out with next gen processors(quad core) this year or early next year. Rumor mill is already spitting out next gen WP devices and can be seen right now in Phone Arena. So basically, it is like Lumia 900 and Lumia 920 senario all over again.
Also, current Lumia 920-925 have the shortest battery life than current Android flagship phones like the S4 and there is a recent topic on this site to prove it.
DAMN YOU FANBOYS! You don't listen to logic.
FYI, this might be its Nokia flagship:

Then why are you or will be buying Eos or just be happy with your current device for thr next 5 years and don't buy a phone.
Good really suits you. Must be an average joe or OAP.

I bet you that these folks in the Windows camp never played the coolest high graphic games like Real Racing 3 and Asphalt 7.
19. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
You can't play highend games on NokiaWp8 it Laaaaaaaaags like hell.
Adreno225 is a joke
20. chunk1x (Posts: 248; Member since: 25 Jun 2011)
Biggest joke is that these games are not even available to the Windows.
25. sniper1087 (Posts: 340; Member since: 31 Dec 2011)
Well first of it is available on wp8 and secondly talking aout games... I have an android and ios and dont have a single game, because I use it for business, if i want to play games I rather use a pc or a console.
Proof that is on wp8:
36. lansky1213 (Posts: 11; Member since: 31 Jan 2013)
Not true at all! Wp8 don't lag at all. Android lags just flipping through home screens!
22. haseebzahid (Posts: 1812; Member since: 22 Feb 2012)
ROFL those games are made for kids and casual people who never before played a game
real gamers go for console or Desktop games if u want to know what graphics is then be silent cuz tese android higest end games looks cute to me but meh technology isnt that advance to get close to real gaming
24. chunk1x (Posts: 248; Member since: 25 Jun 2011)
Of course these games will never match consoles or PCs. You completely missed the point.
32. haseebzahid (Posts: 1812; Member since: 22 Feb 2012)
so did you missed as well
i am wp7.8 user playing PC for last 20 years tried games on phone never got hang of them still love the PC. so no point for android + me . and yes i did tried android games on friend phones .
Graphics when u been around in so detailed games you dont like these games they all seems outdated 2005 engine based games.
in Office i develop for android but my choice is WP simple easy and fluid apps comes and go. Games on other hand are differnt story.
and thats my choice . so does everyone have there own reasons to buy wp
you are no one to judge why we dont buy android ur opion is well heard but ur decision cant overrule others..
stop pretending you can impose ur choice on others.sicen this is your and all ur fellow android attacker on PA are here for
28. Bilpocalypse (Posts: 301; Member since: 13 Oct 2012)
I actually have both of those games on my Lumia 920. They both run lag free. I think it is hilarious that you guys are trying to make a point about WP8 not having high end games by naming 2 high end games that actually are on WP8.
30. cam-whore (Posts: 164; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
i know three games that play well and exclusive only on android, "LAG-a-thon," "BUG attack," and the latest one released days ago, "Phone Grenade"(pocket-blower)... android just ain't stable enough...even on octacore....
35. lansky1213 (Posts: 11; Member since: 31 Jan 2013)
Wrong! We got asphalt 7! And that's why I have a Xbox for.
33. lansky1213 (Posts: 11; Member since: 31 Jan 2013)
Amen! Android users are the only idiots that care bout specs cause android is the only software that needs quad core cpu's to run kind of smooth. 1080p looks great but so does 720 specially on a screen less then 5inches. Really hope Cyan 1020 comes to AT&T

It's called BUSINESS. After all, Nokia isn't a charity institution! LOL :D

$660 unlocked is not expensive; when 808 PureView was launched last year, the price was around $600.
When Lumia 920 was launched last year, it was $650.
8. raunak (Posts: 501; Member since: 12 Oct 2011)
I don't see why they'd price 1020 over 920 (299 vs 99) if the off-contract price is same. Probably because they are still selling 920 on at&t and don't want to discontinue it.
23. EXkurogane (Posts: 863; Member since: 07 Mar 2013)
How much it costs on carrier depends on how much the carrier is willing to subsidize it. But from the off-contract price it is definitely not expensive, and i think Nokia doesnt want to cannibalize the sales of the 920.
13. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
Good they priced it so high, that no one will be buying this scrap®z: which my L920 has no apps and games and really sucks®
38. DerryAhmad (Posts: 242; Member since: 05 May 2012)
I agree that phone with last year's spec should not be priced high. BUT.. The Lumia 1020 has PREMIUM Camera that No other OEM has. That alone should justify its price.
Also, aside from the processor, the Lumia 920 also has some of the last years high end specs including Hyper sensitive screen, Rich audio recording and Wireless Charging.
And be patient, a version of the Lumia 1020 with next gen WP specs will be available as soon as Microsoft do their homework. It's not Nokia's fault that WP hasn't supported Quadcore Proc yet.

How did this turn into talks about price? Dumb fandroid comments again..
anyways on to red. I would rather have it in red than any of the current colors. I'd like to see matte red though
6. raunak (Posts: 501; Member since: 12 Oct 2011)
It does look like Nokia is switching back to matte with 1020. White, black and yellow are.
31. ahhxd717 (Posts: 317; Member since: 08 Dec 2011)
My friend has a red L920 and it's definitely a looker.
9. DontHateOnS60 (Posts: 837; Member since: 20 Apr 2009)
Cyan should have been the color instead of yellow.
12. tigermcm (Posts: 680; Member since: 02 Sep 2009)
THIS in red *drools* but on att only why!!!!!????
17. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
Cause no carriers wants to sell Wp8
Nokia had, has to beg carriers to sell there good for nothing platform.
No one will or want'd to buy Nokia devices know
21. tigermcm (Posts: 680; Member since: 02 Sep 2009)
your logic is VERY flawed. it's not Nokia's platform for one and if no one wanted to buy nokia devices why do they sell more than HTC and Samsung WP8s?? if you're going to troll at least make sense and speak english sheesh
26. stulla (Posts: 15; Member since: 20 Jun 2012)
what's the commotion over specs...if the phone runs well why go putting stuff in it that dont add up...most phones from you go data plan you have to be walking with chargers or spare battery because of these amped up specs some of you guys want...nokia rulesssssssss
27. 7thspaceman (Posts: 1044; Member since: 14 Feb 2011)
a lot of us Windows 8 smartphone folks are more interested in buying a Windows 8 smartphone with a 5 inch 1080P screen plus the great 920 camera and the new qualcom CPU chips than buying a super camera lumia 1020. The Windows 8 tiles would look better on a smart phone with a bigger screen. HTC should have made the Titan 4.7 inch screen windows smart phone with windows 8 specs wow folks it would have been a real hit. it was a very popular Windows 7.5 mango smart phone. some HTC titan owners with windows 7.8 still love it!

Android is good for those who root and customize all damn day! But it's ugly, laggy, and everybody and their mother has one (galaxy). iPhone is a mature OS and dnt need all the high end specs to work great! I got every app that I need on wp8 except clipboard and that's on the way. Wp8 phones and OS looks better!
