There are a few specific points worth noting here. First of all, at 10.4mm-thick, the Lumia 1020 is very slightly thinner than the Lumia 920 (10.7mm), but a good deal thicker than the Lumia 925 (8.5mm). Nonetheless, at 158g, it's considerably lighter than the heavyweight 920, which weighed in at a mighty 185g.

Like the 925 - and the cheaper Lumia 820 - the 1020 has to make do without integrated wireless charging, but this feature is available through an optional charging cover that clips on to the outside of the handset. There's also mention here of the 'camera grip' accessory that we reported on earlier this week, including confirmation that it will include its own battery to aid in extended camera use, as well as including a universal tripod mount. 

The final point that we'd like to highlight is that - as previous leaks indicated - the handset will be available in just three colours: black, white and yellow. That's a departure from other Lumia models which have so far been offered in a much broader range of colours. 

All of this doesn't leave many surprises for Nokia to reveal tomorrow, although we're certainly looking forward to seeing the 41MP camera in action. We're also hoping that Nokia will announce the launch of Instagram on Windows Phone; as we reported back in April, we've previously heard that this will, initially at least, be a Nokia exclusive. 

Nokia will be live-streaming the launch event tomorrow (11 July) from 11am ET (3pm GMT).

Their flagship phone is a dual core 1.5ghz, pffft. Qualcomm's 600/800 processors would have been a better choice which are out soon, those are 2-2.3ghz i think and quad core.

But they're out "soon" and not yet, right? And just because QUALCOMM is done with them doesn't mean a phone OEM can just drop one in their phone and ship it. Some time has to be taken to design and test a new phone with the new chips. The Lumia 1020 is going on sale later this month, so it's using what is out now. If the phone was coming, say, in Sept then it could have used the new stuff.

Engineering samples are made several months before the actual mass production, so that OEMs can start designing around the chips. If the chip is based on a similar architecture as older chips, by the time the mass production starts, some OEMs can be ready to drop the chip in their phone and ship it.

I wouldn't call this their flagship product, as beyond the camera it is balance of features that other models have better offerings. (928 tri-array mics for example)

As for the CPU argument, the timeframe doesn't work out. If they were to delay the phone for two or three months, they would be able to work around the newer CPU.

Also remember that the 920/925/928 STILL outperform the Galaxy S4 quad and octa core phones, even with only the 1.5ghz dual core offering. The closest in performance is the quad core 1.9ghz S4, and it can't keep up with the WP8 devices in the majority of testing.

That's IF, engineering samples and final hardware don't always match up, plus we're talking about phones here, not like generic x86 CPUs you can just pop into a mobo with little worry. I'd also bring up carrier testing to, and they move slow as we all know. Still, even if they do have a newer phone ready, say they've tested behind the scenes, why bring it up now when they're not in mass production yet and you can't make enough phones to actually sell? The last thing they should do is talk up a new device that won't go to market 4-6 months from now. At least with the 1020 we'll see it before the month is over.

Understand about the lack of BT4 due to OS not supporting it but I would have really loved 1080p screen. That would have been the killer.

Now for me, there would be a choice between 928 and 1020! Oh the choice...

One thing to note that might be a difference... (Beyond radios and coverage/carrier where the 928 has the wider support.)

I was surprised to see the 1020 drop back to the 920/925 dual microphone array, instead of the three microphone array in the 928.

I am guessing this is for space/weight/size, but might be enough of a difference in video recording as it won't have an extra microphone for active monitoring levels, and this makes a marked difference between the 928 and the 920/925.

To those complaining: The chipset inside the phone supports Bluetooth 4.0, the current version of Windows Phone 8 does not.

Nokia has already announced that BT 4.0 features will become available on their entire range of Lumia handsets following an OS update.

Slight correction.

BT 4.0 support is in the device, and at driver level, but not actively managed by the OS itself. So it is a partial implementation.

Android also doesn't have OS level management of Bluetooth 4.0.

(Most of the BT 4.0 features are what is implemented at the radio/chipset level and doesn't have full OS support in any device.)

The upcoming update extends the 4.0 offerings with full OS level support for WP8 and 4.0 power management.

158g, it's considerably lighter than the heavyweight 920, which weighed in at a mighty 185g.

really? 27g more is "mighty"

Ok. Really? No Bluetooth 4.0? It's like 2 years old technology now. How can Nokia even have a straight face with that! Unbelievable!

I don't see any difference from people using a BT headset via 4.0 from 3.0. It will come as a update to all Nokia Lumia users in case you missed it.

You are missing something here...

Bluetooth 4.0 requires certification, even if the hardware 'technically' supports 4.0, it can't be advertised as 4.0 until Bluetooth.org tests and certifies the device.

All previous Lumia products have also launched as 3.x, and later received certification for 4.0. (See Neowin 920/820 receive Bluetooth 4.0 certification)

So this is either Nokia pushing the product out too fast and not get prior approval or a delay in the certification process for Nokia.

Additionally, new updates in WP8 GDR2 coming in August take advantage of more of the 4.0 burst features, giving WP8 Bluetooth 4.0 devices a 'lead' over Android Bluetooth 4.0 devices in power saving functionality.

I'm glad it's coming out now...my upgrade is end of next year so by then I'll be getting a nice lumia. Excited to see how well this does pictures though.

Nonetheless, at 158g, it's considerably lighter than the heavyweight 920, which weighed in at a mighty 185g.

But is that at its thickest point though? It has a raised camera bump like the 808 had, so could be 928 in thinness excluding the bump?
