    So because of my desire for the new 1030, I decided to make a google search with the keywords "1020 successor" and I found this article saying that microsoft isn't interested in creating a successor for the 1020, in the article justifies with "They said that they do not want to create a flagship that alienates a portion of the mainstream market" like the 1020 and the nokia pureview 808.
    It broke my heart because that's the phone I've been dreaming for and I was willing to pay a lot of my hard work money to buy the 1030. Please tell me this is fake.

    I don't know this website so don't know if it is reliable.

    It's someone's opinion, that's all. But they got their click-money so probably don't really care if it's true or not.

    What definitely is true, however, is that there is currently no 1020 successor

    Only MS knows if they're working on one. And they don't talk.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Nokia include a 1020 successor if they decide to get back in the game next year when their naming deal expires - it was their baby after all.

    Their Pureview cameras can't recording slow-mo video yet. So they have to take a lot of time to improve their sensor, I think.

    That won't be happening.
    The technology was sold to microsoft.

    In a year, Nokia is again allowed to create mobile phones. But not with the technology they used to. All those patents are now in msft's hands. Pureview included.

    Microsoft got a 10 year licence for Nokia's patents. The patents are still very much Nokia's.
    Microsoft has squandered any time advantage it had in Nokia not being the phone selling game.​ And a newly-lean Nokia could be very well positioned to streak past them.
    Microsoft, for al their good qualities, just can't shake the lumbering slow behemoth mentality.​
