A few days ago, photos of an alleged Lumia 1020 successor appeared online in China. The pictures were clear, bright and provided multiple angles of what many are calling the 'Lumia 1030', which follows the current x30 series of Lumia releases.

Now, a site called PhoneDesigner.eu has made some renders based off those images to give an even clearer look at what may be the next-big-thing from Microsoft. The renders are, of course, based on many assumptions, so take them with a grain of salt.

Normally we do not post fan renders of phones, but in this case, due to the original photos being of such high quality, we are making an exception.

Update: The Verge's Tom Warren has stated on Twitter that this is the cancelled McLaren prototype.

Photos of what is believed to be a Lumia 1030 prototype have been leaked online, showing off its large camera hump. Much like the Lumia 1020 available today, this unannounced device has an advanced shooter to produce high-quality results. Codenamed Nokia RM-1052, we have yet to determine whether or not this is a fake job.

A new Windows Phone with a 5-inch display is currently being developed, at least according to leaked photos from a Chinese factory and published by the site IThome.

The photos appear to show hardware test samples of new displays being developed for a forthcoming Windows Phone. During this process, companies usually experiment with different variations and test the quality of the factory producing the part.

It is not clear if the displays, which clearly reveal a Windows logo for the Start key, are destined for a Microsoft Lumia or if these are for some other manufacturer.

Update: We've received new information that the images, as it turns out, are fake. The image of the yellow device in question looks identical to the one featured in our hands-on of the Lumia 1320 back at Nokia World 2013. That's not to say that the device alleged to be the Lumia 1330 won't feature a similar design. A leaked image of the back cover does indicate that the speaker will now be alongside the camera sensor. This set of images, are however, believed to be false. We're sorry for the confusion, and will be more diligent in the future (whilst checking our own media).
