As the Microsoft Lumia (formerly known as Nokia Lumia) reaches its 30’s series, there appears to be another mystery phone out there yet to be released. Rumors are that this Lumia (not yet confirmed) has a camera bump which is probably bigger than that of the 41-megapixel Lumia 1020.
The images of this handset have been leaked from a Chinese site which clearly shows that it is a prototype model of Microsoft Mobile. According to the images, the handset has an aluminum body which is grey in color and a plastic strip which is white in color at the bottom of the device. The white strip does strike out as a bit odd but it has something to do with the radio signal strength. The images clearly show that the device is manufactured by Nokia and the handset model number is ‘RM-1052_1000’ which is running on Windows Phone 8.1 with 2 GB of RAM. The device appears to have a 5(or more) inch display screen with 1080p full HD resolution.
The rumors are that this device has a 50 Mega-Pixel camera which is believed to manufactured by Toshiba. Given the large camera bump, it can be assumed that the camera will be physically larger as compared to that of Lumia 1020 but may lack the mechanical shutter. The classical Xenon flash seems to have been replaced by a more advanced 4th generation short pulse LED flash.
On one hand it is possible that some went great distances to create such an intricate fake. On the other hand, it is also possible that this could be the “McLaren” which Nokia planned but due to some reasons canceled the launch earlier this year. The floating on-screen Windows Phone buttons also suggest us that this device is not a sham but we don’t know for sure as there has not been any official confirmation from ‘The Big Guys’.
