Nokia Lumia 1030 concept portrays a sleek, aluminum PureView dreamphone


Rumors about the successor to the ultimate cameraphone, the Nokia Lumia 1020, have gained traction recently, and whispers suggest that Microsoft is preparing a Lumia 1030 of sorts with a massive, 50-megapixel PureView camera.

While all this is merely a rumor, it's only logical to expect the awesome PureView technology to get a successor in the near future, eventually. And now, designer Jonas Daehnert, has drawn a gorgeous 3D concept of such a Microsoft Lumia 1030.

The concept shows the Lumia 1030 made of metal, with a single strip of plastic on the bottom that is there for better signal reception. Also, it imagines such a device would have a 2.5D curved screen, and that signature pillow shape form of recent Nokia designs.

Given the rumor for a 50-megapixel camera, we cannot help ourselves from also joining the speculating and pointing out that only the Snapdragon 810 will support such a massive resolution, so that could be another characteristic of the Lumia 1030. Take a look at this concept and its style right below: how do you like it?

Beautiful, especially the gold one. Only if they can make it a bit thinner

Just got a Android Wear watch, stuck on Android now, damn, would really like to have this phone, maybe if MS releases a similar Smartwatch, it will make me go back to Windows Mobile ;)

Would have preferred the Lumia 720 design, and definitely not scratch-prone metal! There's nothing premium about a phone with bad reception that looks totally beaten up within 6 months...

My 925 got water marks on the metal parts... and it's been on a protective case since day one! Now my preferred material for the body is glass (like the Nexus 4) or some polycarbonate.

Beautiful design, but it would be great if it was a bit thinner, and WP 10 running on top of it ;)

Dear Microsoft, just make this phone already. And include microSD expansion, at least a 3000 mAh battery, 1080p screen and at last available across all three major Us carriers. Man I love the looks of this concept.

Love it. But it won't look this good. Losing faith that MS can actually release a Flagship anymore. They are super slow and it might come with last years specs with the excuse that "Oh, but WP doesn't need all that horsepower."

I hope Microsoft does the right thing and allows it to run o multiple carriers instead of just AT & T. it needs it's 4 corners to be rounded off so it does dig into a persons hands. I hope it goes on sale by september 2015 to beat the Christmas shopping season.

IMO, as long as it wouldn't have a Xenon flash, it couldn't be named a worthy succesor for the 1020. I would apreciate some extra memory (+ card slot), a bigger battery and a more capable video player, with support for .mkv files with AC3 audio and subtitles.

Add Android and front faceing speakers, then no other phone on the planet would be purchased. Just saying.
