    LOL... I'll wait to see if it exists and at what spec.

    If it has a 41MP or better Pureview sensor, Xenon flash, an SD card slot, at least 32GB onboard storage, at least a 1080p screen @5 inches or more, Glance, Qi wireless charging, and Gorilla Glass 4, then yes... I'll be buying it!

    Bah... who am I kidding, if it's the real 1020 successor with at least an upgraded camera from the 1020, I'll buy it anyway... no matter what the rest of the specs are!

    Some of the laundry lists of spec seen in the article comments area makes me think people would pay $1500 USD off-contract for the 1030 if it came out... Of course it also sounds like it would have to be made by NASA and not Microsoft.

    The Lumia 1030 is rumored to sport a 50MP rear shooter, the first smartphone to feature such camera. Its camera sensor will be manufactured by Toshiba, and expected to carry an improved PureView camera technology, but with only a short pulse LED flash instead of a XENON flash.
    Other leaked specs of the Lumia 1030 include a 5-inch screen that will support a display resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels and it will be powered by quad-core processor. The handset will be supported by a 2 GB of RAM and runs on Windows Phone 8.1 OS.

    In other reports, It is said to offer a 32GB and 64Gb variant and expandable memory of up to 128GB via microsd.

    Meh, add a little more megapixels, and I'm sold.

    Exactly how I feel. I love my 1020, but I put it away and now my 1520 is my daily driver due to most of the Denim updates benefiting S800 class processors. Still keep the 1020 close on the off chance I need to snap some amazing photos.

    I will buy the 1030 in a heartbeat.

    I am on, if the design is similar to 930 (not 830 where micro usb is on top and corners pointed) and screen size not less than 5 inches.

    its not all about the megapixels. ill take a 20mp camera over a 40pm camera if it took better pics.

    sensor size and lenses make the biggest impact

    A better camera would make it a must have for me... With a closer focusing distance please 😊

    Tbh if it isn't a major step in camera tech I'll pass - perfectly happy with my 1020, with or without the denim update.

    A camera that starts up as fast as the 808, and more video controls would be welcome. Don't need more pixels.

    It remains to be seen if it will be called:

    1030, because that's what we all expect (just like Windows 9 :P ).

    1040, because Microsoft want to use it part of a new lineup in 2015.

    Something else, because Microsoft want to start from scratch with model names for some reason.


    My bet is on 1040. Not that I care tho, but speculate is all we can do right now. I guess McLaren would have fit in the timeline as the 1030, but that one was cancelled.

    This is a big one for me as well. I take a lot of receipt pictures to scan into Concur for work. I also take a lot of pictures of serial numbers, etc. on equipment and the focusing distance drives me crazy.

    I'm still holding out hope for a 1030. Contract is up on my 920 but nothing yet that compels me to change.

    Yeah, I'd get this or the 1520 equivalent, whichever comes first. I do want to have one of those amazing cameras.

    I don't care about SD cards if all of the other features are available.

    ​Seems to me that the 1020 users all say the mega-files from the mega-pixels make them wish for microSD card support...

    From my experience SD cards are buggy and go bad. I used them with my BlackBerry devices and only got good ones (SanDisk) from reputable stores (Newegg.com, Tigerdirect.com) but they went bad. I don't keep pictures on my device anyway, once I upload to OneDrive (I have unlimited OneDrive via my Office 365 subscription).

    Likewise. Upload and delete except for some great ones to show off.

    That said I think they'd be nuts to exclude microSD at this point.

    Exactly the same for me. I do still feel the 1520 is a bit big, but it's literally the only option in the US for full functionality of the camera updates. And even the 1520 is being discontinued by AT&T. I'm starting to think we may not see any more high end Lumias. If they're going to wait nine months until W10, it sounds to me like they just don't give a crap.
