It's not bad, too, with the 6-lens PureView camera featuring 3x lossless zoom, and the whole shebang powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor supported by 2GB of RAM.
We have the previously unheralded Unleash The Phones to thank for nabbing the Lumia 1020 exclusive, and while we already knew a fair bit about it from recent leaks, the full picture still fills in a lot of blanks.
We'll start with the camera, which as we all knew already boasts the same 41MP PureView sensor previously seen in the Nokia 808 PureView.
It boasts the same 6-lens optics arrangement debuted recently on the Lumia 925, while “high resolution zoom” will use all those extra megapixels to give you the same effect as a 3x optical zoom – in other words, digital zoom but with no loss of quality.
Given all that, possibly the most impressive spec of all is that the Lumia 1020 is just 10.4mm thick, a serious reduction on the chunky 808's 13.9mm waistline.
There's no info on the dual-core 1.5GHz CPU other than it's a Snapdragon chip – no surprise there – while the 32GB of internal storage doesn't look like it can be added to via microSD card, though you do get 7GB of SkyDrive space.
Aside from being a photo specialist, the Lumia 1020 also records 1080p video at 30fps and boasts dual microphones capable of recording distortion-free stereo audio even in loud environments.
We're not certain about the 2,000mAh battery, though. The quoted standby/talktime figures are solid enough, but that PureView camera surely uses up a fair bit of juice, which wouldn't show up in the figures. But we'll hold off a final judgement until the facts are known.
The full leaked spec is pasted in below – we'll bring you some official pics and more details after the Lumia 1020's official New York launch event later today.
