Nokia Lumia 1030 concept portrays a sleek, aluminum PureView dreamphone
posted by Victor H. / Dec 04, 2014, 4:19 AM
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.
Metal-made, premiumThe 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?

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...

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.
