With its official launch exactly one week away, a press image of the upcoming flagship Nokia Lumia device has been leaked. The Windows Phone 8-running smartphone, codenamed EOS – which had also been comprehensively leaked previously, may be officially called the Lumia 1020 – the first Lumia device to sport four digits, possibly harking back to the Nokia phones of old.
While the press image above bears a striking resemblance to last year’s Lumia 920, the biggest indicator that this is the new Lumia – besides appearing on the Twitter account of serial leaker @evleaks – is in the Live Tiles of the device as shown in the picture. The Nokia Pro Cam app is prominently featured on the screen – which is said to be an exclusive app made available only to the flagship Nokia Lumia, which is also rumoured to sport a 41MP rear camera (the recent media invite seems to confirm it, too).
Also of note is the time shown on the device’s screen. Traditionally, previous Nokia phones have their model numbers shown as the time on the screen (the 808 PureView had 8:08 on the screen, while all the Lumia devices sported a corresponding times based on their model numbers). The time shown on the Lumia 1020, however, is 10:00 – which gives rise to the possibility that the new Lumia may be called the Lumia 1000. After all, the *20 suffix was usually reserved for refreshed editions of a previous device.
Whether it’ll be the Lumia 1020, 1000 or even a Lumia EOS, we’ll find out for sure in a week’s time.
