Leak suggests that a Nokia Lumia 1020 successor could finally be in the works

"don't give up hope, Windows fans." The text is perhaps more telling than the image, in that many had essentially given up hope of a new handset along the lines of the 808 PureView or the aforementioned Lumia 1020. Blass seems to imply that this image alludes to the long-awaited device, but until we hear more, it's all open to interpretation.Evan Blass, better known as serial gadget informant evleaks, has teased a blurred-out image of a Lumia-esque camera sensor, captioned with the tweet:
A side-by-side of the leak alongside the Lumia 1020's camera feature bears resemblance, underlining the notion that such a device could be in the works. Again, though, it's not really much to go on at this point, and those waiting for the so-called 'Lumia 1040' will need a more than a sketchy image to be convinced of its existence:

Still, with Windows 10 coming soon, Redmond may surprise us. Let us know if you'd like to see an upgrade of the Lumia 1020 by dropping us a comment below.

It looks more like Lumia 830 camera module, just with Dual LED's...

Microsoft are slow and larthagic. In the mobile world if you don't constantly update you have already fallen way behind the competition. Look all the new Microsoft phones. They're all taking forever to be released and with dated tech.

Fast is not always best. Other than a few nitpicks, the 1520 for me still puts up a fight even against the note 4, save the split screen and pen (something I would like, started to use a note 4 again - work loves for me to need android, and it is growing on me).

What does that say to you though, that they're losing what little marketshare they had in the U.S., and at such a high rate? As a WP user myself, it's pretty clear that a lot of U.S. WP users (loyal ones at that) are losing interest with nothing noteworthy happening in the past year. Forget noteworthy actually, there's just been no effort at all to maintain our interest. But more worrying to me is Microsoft's pattern of constant pivoting ever since WP7. While I believe they are going to release some excellent devices this year, they have just been in a continuous cycle of trying something new (usually pretty good admittedly), not gaining traction, then pivoting and trying something else. I have no long-term confidence in Microsoft's game plan.

WP. What a joke! You want a real OS you get Android.

Considering your entire existence is a joke, I would just stop already.

Agree. Wp has no major apps and games. The OS is confusing and messed up. Even Symbian is better. I don't see anyone using that platform. You

os is confusing? Seriously a grid of tiles is confusing? SO a grid of icons is so much more unconfusing? A row of installed apps in confusing? Compared to what, pages of installed apps? Settings menu perhaps? Like in settings, it says backup, and when I go to backup....dear lord I get sim settings...oh wait that doesn't happen I get backup settings. Please, try harder. Nearly 100million users and counting.

Such ugly lens for 2015 is a shame. They should bring something like that Windows tablet built quality.

Yes ugly lens in your point of view, but remember it kills all other cameraphones! So stick with your crappy Phone while we wait for the New King!
