The leaked image shows a portion of the phone carrying model number Lumia 1030 on the glass panel and Microsoft on the top. The carrier company Verizon logo also appeared at the image at the corner. 

The screen resolution is expected to be 1080 x 1920 pixels. Since, Lumia 1030's predecessor had set high standard camera segment therefore it is said that the tradition will be kept alive with optical image stabilization and auto or manual focus options.  

Other features like Xenon & LED flash, PureView Technology, geo-tagging, face detection, dual capture, and panorama remains. Its predecessor has 41MP rear camera and only 2.1MP front camera sensor, according to GSMARENA.

According to reports, the device might sport 2GB of RAM with 32GB of internal storage facility. The previous version has Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 plus processor, along with Dual-Core 1.5GHz Krait CPU. The GPU is not up to the mark when compared to the price, as Adreno 225 is rumored to be the GPU.

The users will also be disappointed to know that both the devices miss the external card slot facility; however, Microsoft hasn't shared any concrete information about the handset. Lumia 1020 could not reach to the targeted sale volume and the records indicate that the company might not be able to redeem the losses if the price of the Lumia 1030 is not kept within range though Realty today reported that the price of the Lumia 1030 might revolve around $1000.

Windows 10, OneDrive features, Microsoft Cloud computing vision, high standard camera are rumored to be the strength of the Lumia 1030. Rumors also suggest that the new CEO Satya Nadella has mailed a 1,500-word message to the company employees regarding the future plan of Microsoft with its Lumia devices.

Microsoft bought the Nokia company for an unprecendented sum, and since then, the company is struggling to stay afloat. Microsoft also handed over the pink slip to thousands of employees in an apparent bid to streamline their functions and financial resources. The cash crunch is also responsible for the delay in the release of Surface Pro 4 device.
