Purported inventory screenshot suggests 'Nokia Lumia 1020' hitting AT&T in black, white and yellowAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Jonesing for some more AT&T Nokia Lumia 1020 goodness after last night's image leak? That's precisely what is being served up tonight, courtesy of the folks at WPCentral. The site has posted what it claims is a screenshot of a Microsoft Store's upcoming inventory, complete with three entries for a "Nokia Lumia 1020 AT&T." The image suggests that AT&T will offer the new Lumia in black, white and yellow. It's not clear if or when other colors might be offered. The screenshot also shows that this store will be receiving 70 units of the device at a price of $602 each, though it seems possible that that cost is how much the store paid for the phone, not the amount that consumers will need to pony up.
Nokia has scheduled an event titled "Zoom. Reinvented." for July 11, and it's expected that the company will use the gathering to formally introduce this new Lumia. The source of this leaked screenshot claims that the "7/22/2013" date in the lower left corner of the image indicates when they might begin receiving shipments of the new phone and that a consumer launch could come a few days later.
This upcoming Nokia Lumia device has leaked out several times in recent months under the codename "EOS," but there have been conflicting reports on whether it'll be known as the Lumia 1020 or Lumia 909 at launch. Whatever it's called, the headlining feature of this handset is likely going to be a 41-megapixel camera sensor, making it what many refer to as a "true" PureView device.
Along with that beefy camera, the EOS/Lumia 1020/Lumia 909 will also reportedly include a 1280x768 OLED display, 32GB internal storage and a body that measures 1mm thinner than the Lumia 920's 10.7mm-thick frame. Those specs may not make the EOS sounds like a major upgrade over the Lumia 920, which also sports a 1280x768 resolution LCD display and 32GB of storage, but I'm betting that that 41-megapixel camera will convince at least a few consumers to pull out their wallets for Nokia's newest Lumia.
