Update: Indian tech site Puhelinvertailu has wrangled the leaked spec sheet. We’ve embedded it below.
It seems that Nokia just can’t keep a secret. From the screen shots and low light test photos to the full specs and the shaky video of the camera, we’ve been given quite a lot of information on a phone Nokia is only officially launching later today. Windows Phone manager Joe Belfiore was even kind enough to inadvertently confirm that the device will be called the Lumia 1020, by posting photos taken with the phone to his Flickr account.
But now there’s more: The Verge has managed to get its hands on what appears to be the first batch of official press shots of the Lumia 1020. According to the shots, the 1020 will be the first Windows Phone device to feature Nokia’s giant 41 MP PureView camera sensor, which is an unmistakable feature on the rear of the phone. The photos also confirm that Nokia has not lost its fondness for sunshine yellow, although this Lumia will also be available in more standard black and white for those who prefer something a bit more understated. One of the accessories will reportedly be a snap-on camera grip shell which includes an additional battery, micro USB port and makes it easy for the phone to be mounted on a tripod.
The details which are expected to be announced at Nokia’s ‘Zoom, reinvented’ press event in New York include that the phone has a 4.5-inch AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage and an additional wide angled lens on the front-facing camera.

The back of the 1020 is dominated by the PureView camera.
The Camera Shells
The snap-on shells will presumably provide extra grip for shots on the go and additional battery power.

Despite the large camera, the rest of the phone looks very similar to its predecessors (like the Lumia 920 and 925).
