Nokia Lumia 1020 gets UK release this week


The flagship Nokia Lumia 1020 has been a highly admired Windows Phone handset and is already available on AT&T in the US. There are likely to be many potential customers for this phone in the UK and now we have heard that the Nokia Lumia 1020 is to get a UK launch this week.

If you’ve been waiting for the Lumia 1020 then you may feel it’s been a pretty long wait since the phone was first announced. It won’t be too much longer though as the phone will go on sale in the UK on Thursday September 12th.

Following this it shouldn’t be too much longer until it launches for other parts of Europe. The news came via a Nokia UK tweet, which didn’t make much of a fanfare as it merely said, “Nokia Lumia 1020 + UK = this Thursday.”

The UK price for this camera-centric smartphone hasn’t been announced yet, but we’ll give that information once we hear it. You may want to check out our article from several weeks ago about the Lumia 1020 on O2.

For those of you who need a reminder of the major specs, the Lumia 1020 is powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor, and has a 4.5-inch AMOLED display with resolution of 1280 x 768 and 332 ppi.

The Lumia 1020 also has 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (non-expandable), a whopping 41-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization, 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera and 2000 mAh battery. It runs Windows Phone 8 upgradable to WP8 Amber.

  1. That’s a possible interpretation of that tweet, the other more likely interpretation is that we’ll get the launch date announcement on Thursday, which is likely to be either the 26th or 27th of this month.

    Considering most carriers/resellers are still showing “register for info” pages for the Lumia 1020, I find it hard to believe the device would launch on Thursday with little to no major marketing. (don’t get me wrong I would LOVE the Lumia 1020 to launch this week as I’ve been bugging nokia since the announcement lol).

    This pretty much smells of “Apple is announcing new iPhones, so we need to keep people talking about the Lumia 1020”.

    Then again…I could be pleasantly wrong 😉

    Segana, you are probably right in the sense that this is an Apple pre-sale ploy, however with little to now news publically about release, and hardly anything on their own website this is probably hype. If the device was to be released tomorrow (and i am another waiting on it) then the likelyhood is by the time people hear its released it’ll be too late since people’s pre-orders will be fullfilled first and of course with no hint on price this makes it even harder for people to make the choice.
