While the Lumia 930 came out in 2014, it didn’t satiate people thirst for bonkers cameras - it had a mere 20MP camera, not even close to 1020’s 41MP sharpshooter. So the rumor mill looked for clues about the Lumia 1030, which was expected to have an even more insane camera - with a 50MP PureView sensor (bigger in size to boot) with a Zeiss lens and all.
The Microsoft Lumia 1030 would have been all about the camera, the rest of the specs wouldn’t have impressed even back in 2014 - a 5” 1080p screen (AMOLED), quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage on board (with a microSD slot).
At least it knew what it was about. The Microsoft Lumia 750 was a relatively minor upgrade over the 730 - it would have had a bigger screen (5” vs. 4.7”), still 720p, a Snapdragon 410 chipset (up from 400) and 8GB storage. The camera, while Zeiss branded, would shoot only 8MP stills.
@The Wise One your comment has not aged well, has it?
Phones don't have 50 megapixel cameras for the same reason that they don't have 100 megapixel cameras. However, I'm not sure why phones don't have 100 megapixel cameras, so maybe someone wiser than me will be along shortly!
Yeah...Lumia 950 was a highly anticipated model, I was among the many people, who were interested in getting it. But after release everything went upside down and it kinda began WP downfall (before 950 they had 3.5% market share). MS didn't care enou...
