Sensor is an estimated 5x the size of the iPhone 5's, 1020 has adjustable aperture, manual shutter, xenon flash
Nokia Oyj.'s (
" Windows Phone -- reportedly to be branded the "Lumia 1020" -- has been the subject of
several image leaks
in recent months. Now
has offered up
what may be the first images of the front face of the phone.
The fresh photos at first blush appear to show a standard Windows Phone 8 interface, but on closer inspection they appear to be running Nokia's "Amber" Windows Phone skin, which adds the Nokia Camera Pro (pictured) and FM Radio app (which wakes the dormant radio on various Nokia devices). It also will reportedly allow users to double tap to wake their device.
The other significant feature in the front-face shot is the AT&T, Inc. (
) logo, which hints that this Windows Phone-friendly carrier may be the first landing spot of this super shooter.

Here's a quick recap of the phone's specs:
1/1.2", 41 megapixel image sensor (about 5x the surface area of the sensor in Apple, Inc.'s (
) iPhone 5 (1/3.2") or 4x the HTC Corp. (
) One (1/3")

Carl Zeiss optics with adjustable aperture (new) and floating lens tech for low-light
1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon from Qualcomm, Inc. (
) (possibly quad-core in some variants)
4.5-inch, 768x1280 pixel OLED display, with
ClearBlack and PureMotion HD+ overlays
1 GB DRAM
32 GB internal NAND flash storage
The phone is rumored to be unveiled July 11, which puts it head-to-head with Huawei Technologies
, which launches a week later in London on June 18. Until then, enjoy the fresh pic!

Putting top hardware (1080p, 4 or 8c SoC...) together with this sort of camera would drive device's price well above competition, and lock it into niche segment. With bulgy 20+ MP camera at the back, it already is niche, but pushing hardware envelope further and ending up with price significantly above competing phones would make it uberniche, something that many admires but nobody buys.
That being said. My RX100 camera has effectively VGA resolution on 3" screen. Mind you, it looks absolutely great, so I'm pretty sure 720p screen will serve camera with ~5" screen just fine.
Device must have dedicated image processing engine (which adds to the price), so it does make sense keeping phone SoC price down. Dual core has proven to work well with WP8. I don't even think that there is much software for WP, including games, that would really take advantage of 4C or 8C.
I won't be surprise if in near future Nokia releases high-end phone with more standard 8-12MP camera, 1080p screen, more powerful SoC and slim - and in line with competition price wise, but I don't think this will be THAT phone.

Of course there aren't games or software on WP8 which use quad or octa-cores, because there is no device which would support it, so it's a waste of time to implement such a 'feature' in an app.
Both Nokia and WP8 have almost zero market share. WP8 offers nothing special regarding software. So Nokia has to deliver some special hardware and can't just sell a high-end phone with the same components used by Apple, HTC, Samsung and Sony. Nokia has to do it better. They can. The design of the Lumia was something special two years ago, the camera will be great here, too. But the overall package was and still is only mediocre. So what they sell are niche devices for WP8 fans.
