The Microsoft Lumia 1030 is reportedly "dead" - no Lumia 1020 successor this year?
While the source of the two photos (French website Nowhereelse) has a good track record when it comes to leaked information, this doesn't necessarily mean the Lumia 1030 will hit the market. In fact, according to Evan Blass (who gained fame as @evleaks by revealing images of many devices before their announcement), the "McLaren is dead", and "Microsoft is finished with the x30 generation." This should mean that the Lumia 630, Lumia 730 and Lumia 930 are the last handsets from the x30 series.
Of course, Microsoft already confirmed that it would launch a Windows 10-based flagship smartphone sometime later this year, but this might not be the long-rumored Lumia 1030. Or maybe it will, but it's going to have a different name? We can't know for sure, but we hope we'll find out more about this soon.
What do you think, will Microsoft launch a successor to the Lumia 1020 before the end of 2015?
P.S.: The device you're seeing above isn't real, it's just a fan-made render.
