Exclusive: 64GB version of Nokia Lumia 1020 supposedly headed to Telefónica (Europe, Latin America)
While a few of you have lamented that the AT&T Nokia Lumia 1020 will reportedly come with only 32GB of internal storage (and nothing expandable), we now have evidence that a 64GB version of the device is planned for the market,
Unfortunately, it is exclusively destined for Telefónica (O2, Movistar and Vivo) in both their European and Latin American markets.
The device is slated to launch in September and will provide double the storage of the “standard” Nokia Lumia Eros...
The information comes via a draft press release for Telefónica that happened to come into our possession through unofficial channels. While we can’t reveal our leakers info, we’re leaning heavily on the legitimacy of the content, due in part to the detail and our knowledge of the source.
Interestingly, we’ve been calling the device “EOS” for some time now but evidently “Eros” is also another codename for it (or the previous EOS was a mistake). Coincidently, we recently reported on how "Eros" and "Mars" both appeared for O2 Germany on their roadmap, which now matches up with the above info rather nicely.
From the press release, which should hit the wire tomorrow:
Madrid, July 11th 2013.
