Nokia's premium leather case for the Nokia Lumia 1020 is outed
Different people put different cases on their smartphones for different reasons. Some put a plastic case on their device just for looks. These cases don't provide much in the way of protection from drops or spills, but look good. Others spend the big bucks for the super protective coverings made from the same material used on the space shuttle. These cases are for those who have a heart attack whenever their phone touches a piece of dust and protects against drops, spills and heavy breathers. Other cases fall somewhere in between these two examples.

A leaked picture of Nokia's premium leather case for the Nokia Lumia 1020  seems to be heavy duty enough to offer some protection while still looking very nice. Of course, if you're the type that loves animals and can't stand the feel of leather, this case is not for you anyway. The cool thing about this case is the protective cover for the 41MP camera lens and the flash (both LED and Xenon). No question that this is a premium case for a premium phone.

Buying accessories for a new phone is one of the joys of life, right up there with watching Breaking Bad and Dexter. And what better way to protect your investment (and at $299 with a signed contract, some might consider it as such) than with a case that is both practical and attractive.

We have no idea about pricing or when it will come to market, but hopefully it will be released around the same time that the Nokia Lumia 1020 is released, which is July 26th.

Have your Nokia Lumia 1020 enjoy the feel of leather on its rear...facing camera that is

I've never liked leather cases too bulky.....but this one looks pretty cool!
Wait does this phone have a front facing camera?

Yup, that's the only thing worth upgrading from my 808 PureView other than that I think I'll stick to my symbian phone

Apart from the 480 HP engine, how is a GTR different from my Tercel? The Lumia 1020 has a 41MP camera, that blows away all other competitors, and that is the point!

Now, let me ask, Apart from processor and LTE-A, how is S4 different from Exynos version and S600 version of Galaxy S4?

Android fanboys ask stupid questions but never look at their own devices.
This 1020 has a monster camera + double the RAM of 920, already a decent variant. It is called flagship because it has better specs (esp double the RAM) but it is just a variant to me.

The case has many different colors to suit your Lumia’s color the most.
