Lumia 1020 could hit End of Life status this September
It looks like the Nokia Lumia 1020 may soon be reaching "end-of-life" status. End-of-life generally refers to the point in time when a product is no longer manufactured or supported. For the 1020, that time looks to be September 14, according the Evleaks.
It would be a little odd for the Lumia 1020 to reach End-of-Life status now. The phone launched in late July 2013, just shy of a year ago. The device has a 41-megapixel camera with a Carl Ziess optic, along with a 4.5-inch AMOLED screen, 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, and a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor.
What do you think of the Lumia 1020 possibly reaching End-of-Life? Let us know below in the comments.

I have been waiting for so long..
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! i can't stop laughing!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
I'm very surprised that you have to wait for the tiles to render.
I have a 920 (basically the same specs as yours except the screen) and mine works fine. No lag, just like wp8.0 with more features. I don't have to wait for the home screen tiles to render, they're as fast (if not faster...) than 8.0 I'd try a hard reset on your phone just so it can have a refresh
120fps 1080p slow mo
Would be great, plus maybe the same Dolby audio recording that they put in 930, which should supposedly work quite well.
Ativ S reached EOL February and no reply from Samsung.
All WP handsets are going out and no major OEMs are jumping onboard.
LG have been huffing and hinting and nothing.
Windows is screwed, sad
That's part of the problem.
The article says that EOL means end of support as well, which is why people are freaking out. It's creating FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt). Given the number of corrections in the comments, and how one of the main principles of this site is to quell FUD, I'm surprised they haven't fixed it yet.
1020 is really slow at taking pics.
Personally I'd like to see 3.0 GHz Snapdragon 805 Quad-Core processor & 3 GB RAM in the successor of 1020, this will make it incredibly fast while taking pics!
I'll keep it for at least one more year for sure.
The phone will be well over a year old...how is stopping production at this time a surprise.
Isn't it too early MS??
Bought mine last september - And already now they are talking 'bout "end of life"? O' hell no - they should'nt!
i just hope these existing WP8 phones wont have the same fate as those WP7s way too soon. it would be a total bummer, really. if that's the case, then might as well euthanize WP in a snap rather than prolong it when you jst care less about it. YES I'M TALKING TO YOU, MICROSOFT!
Windows 8.1 "aka Windows Blue Update" is here! The Lumia 1020 & Lumia 1520 to be replaced by the Lumia 1030 & Lumia 1530 in October! They will use the Snapdragon 801 & Snapdragon 805 in them!
However I admit I would like to upgrade the internals, the phone feels snappy enough except for the camera which is a little slow. Hopes up for mclaren camera reveal..
And MS's production capacity is not nearly full. They are capable to produce millions of devices more. So they could do this and other successor at the same time. Look at the others, they can do it also.
This is pity cos if this didnt sold enough, there will never be another 'monstercam' device. Posted via Windows Phone Central App
I do not regret my decision, but I do imagine that most people prefer a quad core to play games and a 8mpx camera instead a 41mpx with midrange hardware. I suppose the sales were not good enough :(
it goes back to what has been said many times, advertise, advertise, advertise..i think with a marketing push in those regions, MSFT can easily sell a couple more million units.. My 2 cents
