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!

1. games: the faster the SoC and the more RAM available, the better the games.
2. this thing shoots >30MP which needs lots of processing power especially for live- and post-processing. You pobably want to edit and manipulate them on the smartphone, create slide shows, ... do stuff you can with HTC Zoe, and so on. The larger the image, the more RAM and the more processing power you need. Maybe apps will capture live views Of course it's possible with a dual core and 1GB, but it would be magnitudes better with 2GB and a quad core.
3. You can easily fill the ram with heavy browsing sessions and other apps in the backgrund running.
4. Those aren't speculations, because it affects every operating system. It's a physical fact: The more ram and the faster the SoC, the faster and more versatile the smartphone becomes and the possibilities with it.
To me it seems pretty silly to justify two years old specs on a flag-ship smartphone.
With such poor specs it can't get compared to the HTC One or Galaxy S4 but more to the Galaxy S4 zoom, which might be the better choice thanks to the optical zoom. However, both will be niche devices, nothing which helps Nokia and WP8 to gain significant market share.
I'm an Android user. I really would like a smartphone with this camera, but even with Android on it, I wouldn't buy it, because of the disappointing remaining specs. So my criticism has nothing to do with WP8, but only with Nokia.

How can you tell someone is an Android user? They'll tell you... :)
Please keep in mind that Windows Phone is a more advanced OS than Android. It simply runs better on fewer resources, and makes more resources available for the foreground application by better management of background applications.
Lastly, throwing more cores should be the last resort to elevate performance because of the ramifications that come with it, such as more power consumption and providing more headroom for sloppily written apps to perform better only on high performance devices, versus the mid-grade devices.
