Maybe they are waiting to release the flagship with Windows Phone 10 hence the delay. Because if they release a flagship now with Windows Phone 8.1 then it will be Completely Annihilated by iPhone 6/6+ and Android Flagships. They will become a joke in the industry because Windows Phone is far behind in terms of OS and Hardware Features. Anyway who cares? They have an ugly OS with Restrictions, limited Phone Lineup and Lagging App and Game support. Microsoft you could have been so better in mobile yet you still manage to disappoint everyone even today. Now where are those people who said that Windows Phone is a new OS it needs some time, its ahead in App count and Adoption compared to iOS and Android with respect to its age?? Windows Phone is no where as compared to iOS and Android in the same time frame!
I think most of people don't understand here is that releasing new high-end will decline the sale of almost new release high-end. Please do understand that Windows 8.1 is very efficient for SD 800 nor 801 that means less work for microsoft to update fewer phonea to the latest updates. If you don't undertand what I mean please tell me why your new android phone fail you sometimes even it's top of the line chip? No Need For Neq Hardware If Software Can Do The Remedy.
Maybe not a Lumia, but HTC is up to something and so are others. Microsoft probably just doesn't want to scare off other manufacturers looking on entering the WP ecosystem. Which totaly makes sense.

I brought 1020, it freezes, and battery nowhere to get out to reset. I had to wait till battery discharge itself (even reset buttons that clean memory didnt help).
well it has a more detail, better iso...but for nothing.
If for ex. I try to zoom to object, note3 give me almost same detail thx to digital zoom(just a bit less) and NO noise. 1020 has maybe a bit more detail, but SO MUCH NOISE. i just had to write it.
Maybe someone got something similar?...
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2014I will wait for WP10Correction. Not WP10 but just 'W10'. Hopefully by September, they could have harmoniously optimized W10 with their inevitable upcoming flagship. That is, if it holds true that they'll be announcing/releasing a flagship by September and that no mishaps/miscalculations will happen that would, otherwise, push or delay the September flagship.
Ding! 'No flagship' does not mean they would halt offerings of new low-enders
Next! (TA as JA accent)
if MS doesn't release a high end flagship phone within 3 months later I will go for android
41 MP xenon flash dual led
32 Gb internal with micro sd 3G RAM
windows 10 with support OTG, USB3, hdmi, wifi direct
Did you try any Lumia phone .... You should Lumia 1520 or Lumia 830 ....
Thanks Microsoft. I will stick to my Note 3, it's actually a proper flagship you know...running proper multitasking software not crippled WP.

As far as external storage seems... I can't imagine anyone needs more than 27gb of space (that's about how much is avilable). 😊
