The Lumia 1020 leaks are coming fast and furious now — WP Central has just posted more renders of the device as well as a more complete spec sheet than we've seen yet. While the new render matches up with what we've already seen, it does show off the Lumia 1020 in a fairly striking yellow. Nokia's been going with bold colors for nearly every Lumia it has released thus far, and it doesn't seem like the trend is abating yet. Along with the yellow, it looks like the phone will come in more muted black and white color schemes, as well. More noteworthy is a fairly complete spec list — along with the expected 41-megapixel sensor, it looks like the new camera will include the optical image stabilization (OIS) technology that Nokia first built into the Lumia 920 last year. The new report also claims the camera will have an F/2.2 lens as well as the Xenon flash that was already rumored, making the Lumia 1020's camera formidable indeed. It's worth noting that the F/2.2 aperture is the same setting that showed up in photos shot with the Lumia 1020 that Joe Belfiore shared on Flickr earlier today.

From a software perspective, the phone will also reportedly include some new features to let users take advantage of the massive sensor. It sounds like Nokia has built a "pro camera" app that will let users change ISO, white balance, manual focus, and shutter speed. As for the more traditional smartphone specs, it sounds like the Lumia 1020 will come with a whopping 2GB of RAM — a spec that's pretty common in Android phones but exceeds most other Windows Phone 8 devices. That'll undoubtably help the phone process the massive photos it shoots. While there's still no release date for the Lumia 1020, it'll supposedly be out by the end of the month. Given how rapidly information about this phone has been leaking, that timeline seems completely reasonable — we're expecting it to be introduced this Thursday alongside a special camera grip and battery accessory.
