The numbers represent if its a phone, tablet, or phablet. The higher the number the bigger the device is. The 2000 series are tablets, the 1500 series are phablets and anything below that is a phone
How about a "Smablet"? The way size is going, a smart tablet could be next! As for the camera, how about the capability of going from wide angle to telephoto?
Must have wireless charging without the need of a special back, or if it uses a special back, how about including a different lens with it, as well! PLEASE make the battery replaceable!
I loved that feature on my Samsung Focus. Always carried a freshly charged spare and could swap in about 5-6 seconds! No need to carry a bulky battery pack.

I hate SmartPhones with more than 4.5 inch screen.
Is not practical.
I cant use it only with my one hand.
SmartPhones are not Phablets and not Tablets.
SmartPhones shouldn't been build with more than 4.5 inch screen.
It's too damn big. Why is everyone obsessed with 5 inch standart? It's too big. No consideration.
They are rotated in some of the pictures...
Then why such a big bezel at the bottom of the phone ?
Where is the xenon flash?? Proper pureview successor is going to have xenon flash.
Loving my 1020, hope that it will get Windows 10 (I am skeptical about its hardware capabilities to match the requirements)

It is not conventional method, but a Class Leading Imaging Technology.

1. LOSSLESS ZOOM – Oversampling
Oversampling can be said the most sophisticated algorithm being marketed now. This programming creates 5mp picture with NO Noise on par with DSLR. Allowing your picture uploaded to Social Web such as Facebook of much Higher Quality and Clarity.
Lossless Zoom feature also available in Video Capturing.
Common feature in high end smartphone nowadays.
3. Awesome in Low Light Mode
Class Leading Low light mode.
The higher MegaPixel of Pureview Lumia you are buying, the better it is.
Lumia 1020 is superb even closed to high end DSLR.
It's funny, when I think about it, how every "Pureview" camera since the 808 has been a step backwards, as far as sensor size goes.
The 808 had an unprecedently large 1/1.2 sensor--five times larger than any sensor in any other phone. The 1020 has a smaller 1/1.5 sensor--but still at least four times the size of any other flagship phone's sensor. The 1520 has a yet smaller 1/2.5 sensor (same as the Galaxy S5 and smaller than the 1/2.3 sensor in the Xperia Z2 and Z3--so now "Pureview" is no different than some other flagship phones). And the 830 has a 1/3.4 sensor, which is eight year old technology and squarely in the same ballpark of every random halfway decent phone for years; most, in fact, have at least slightly larger 1/3.0 sensors.
Usually technology gets better over time. Usually they keep bumping up the specs a bit. All that to say, "Pureview" has meant nothing since the 808 and the 1020. It's just a marketing term to make phones that are no better than other flagships sound like something special.
So be extremely skeptical of anything new with the now meaningless "Pureview" label on it. Look carefully at the specs.
Oh my this looks a huge phone. Good specs from what we can see but no thanks. I can see many people liking big huge phones but there is a lot who prefer more pocket friendly sizes. Sigh .. one day..?
The question will be, what kind of sensor does it have? Will this be a pureview camera, on the level of the 1020, to say nothing of the even better 808? Or will this be a half-baked "Pureview" in name only, like the 1520 or the complete Bogusview 830?
There is a pretty big camera hump, which is promising as far as sensor size goes, but that lens looks really tiny and not so promising. And the hump could just be because the phone is thinner than the original 1020, not because the sensor is the same size.
It also looks like a much larger phone than the original 1020, since the 1020 was shorter than the iPhone 6, but these leaked photos show something much taller.
os, 11 Dec 20145" is huge? :D For me 6" would be better. Because my note 3 feels small in hand. And... moreits supposed to be a phone not a phablet, also you'll look stupid trying to take photos with a near-tabletsized device,let alone be hampered with it.
Where is the xenon flash Microsoft what's wrong with you guy ,guess u guys are making to much money that's why and not giving the people what they ask for.. thank u
xenon flash is what will make it successor,what is wrong with companys they have the new flat capacitor?
