The big disappointment in Lumia 1020
All the leaks up until now suggest that the 1020 will likely feature the same chipset as the 920. This is extremely disappointing for me, as I really want to buy this device.
I know that WP performs really smoothly on the 920, but I do not see it running modern games coming out in the next 2 years. With all androids shifting to Snapdragon 600/800 and with Apple leading the GPU wars as always, Windows phone will be stuck with inferior ports of all modern games coming over the next 2 years.
This was Nokia's one big chance to get up to date with regard to specs. The screen resolution is a non issue, 1080p is totally redundant. But a Snapdragon 600/800 device with a 41 mp camera would have truly shaken up the market.
It is sad to see Microsoft not get their priorities right even after so many iterations.I do not see a point in having a unique collaboration with a chipset manufacturer (Snapdragon) if others are still able to get devices out faster into the market.
I hope I am wrong and that Nokia reveals some amazing news tomorrow, but it is looking highly improbable at the moment.
