Nokia's 41-megapixel Windows Phone will be called the Nokia Lumia 1020. That's according to sample photos posted on Flickr by Microsoft Windows Phone manager Joe Belfiore. In a series of sample shots from various Lumia Windows Phones, there are two that appear as "Nokia Lumia 1020." One is listed at 2947 x 1658 resolution (nearly 5-megapixels) and another is 2352 x 1568 (3.7-megapixels), suggesting that Nokia's upcoming Lumia 1020 PureView will likely shoot at different resolutions using the power of the large sensor.


There had been some confusion over the name of Nokia's 41-megapixel Windows Phone, initially identified as the Lumia 1020 and then the Nokia 909. Although EXIF and Flickr data can occasionally be faked and rendered inaccurate, it's highly unlikely that Belfiore has faked an image on his own personal Flickr account. Nokia is expected to unveil the device, codenamed EOS, at an event in New York on Thursday along with a special camera grip and battery accessory. Nokia has been teasing the handset under the slogan "41 million reasons to zoom in."

Thanks, djca!
