As Microsoft is reportedly prepping a successor to the one of the more popular Nokia Lumia devices up to date, the Lumia 1020, which is universally praised as one of the more potent cameraphones out there. Codenamed "McLaren", the device in question could end up being called the Microsoft Lumia 1030.
As the Lumia 1020 is popular for the capabilities of its 41MP PureView camera, it comes to no surprise that the recent round of rumors regarding its successor comprise a rear-positioned camera sensor with a respectable, two-digit megapixel count.
If the rumor mill is to be believed, the Lumia 1030 will boast a 50MP camera, most probably of the PureView type. Apart from raising the ante in the megapixel count, the Lumia 1030 is also said to come with a physically-larger camera sensor, which is always welcome. In addition, the flash of the device is said to be not a xenon, but a 4th-gen short-pulse LED one.
