Nokia Lumia 1020 Windows Phone slated to invade the UK this Thursday

Nokia UK (opens in new tab) has tweeted out a teaser that should please many UK Windows Phone users.

The message is simple. "Lumia1020 + UK = this Thursday".

Still not sure as to the where and how much but if you've been waiting for Lumia 1020 with its 41MP Pureview camera, the wait appears to be coming to an end.  The light at the end of the tunnel is in sight so to speak.

Nokia Lumia 1020 to UK

We are still expecting the Lumia 1020 to reach other parts of the globe in October such as Canada and Russia. Australia is slated to get the Lumia 1020 later this month.

  • Good for the UK windowsphone fans :)
  • And, good for WP market share❗
  • Cant wait for this !!!
  • Just so no one gets too excited, we'll get the full details this Thursday, but I reckon it'll still be a few weeks before they show up in stores :)
  • Finally!
  • Right in Time before the next Phones will be surfaced. just like with the Lumia 900 :=)
  • Not even the same thing.
  • Waiting for Finland..
  • Can not wait for this. Already got my yellow one on pre-order. Please Nokia, just give it to me!!
  • On Thursday, I bet what we get is a release date. 
  • I hope they sell like crazy
  • I'll have me one of those. As it's rumoured to be launching on multiple carriers hopefully they'll be a nifty selection of free stuff to choose from also (such as a camera grip or charging shell).
  • I asked in an O2 store and they told me 25th September.
  • And yet I will prob' still have to  wait an extra 2/3 months for EE to get it on their networks (Orange/TMobile) just like My friend had to do for the Lumia 925. every other network had it fo at least a month and a half before EE got that handset. Feels like EE doesnt give a flying F&@k about Windows phone.
    Or is that just my imagination?
  • Nope, it's not just your imagination. It looks like EE don't give a damn anymore about Windows Phone. Screw 'em I say and their poxy network. Anyway, can't wait myself for this to launch officially in the UK. That camera is amazing. And I also know that it's not all about the high pixel count but what the phone actually does with those pixels to create some fantastic pictures.
  • When will it come to Switzerland? From Swisscom or Orange??
  • Since i have L920, will wait for the next version after 1020, hoping that it would have 4 cores & >= 64GB. i think i will replace the L920 next year as i am still enjoying it.
  • Ope it does well
  • Give me this phone on Verizon, and TAKE MY MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! stupid ATT exclusive
  • it's crazy (to me) how many people (non-techies) are interested in this phone with its juggernaut of a camera, but there main reason for not having it is because of lack of availability on carriers - in the US at least. I was shocked when my gf told me when her Sprint contract is up she's going to ditch her Galaxy and probably get the "Lumia 1020 on AT&T because it has a 41 Megapixek camera"...utterly amazed.
  • This is incredibly stupid. Why does it take so long to launch it in other countries? By the time they roll it out in most countries, there will be a newer, better phone.
  • ^^ this
  • 'Cus the 925 has only been out (in the UK) for a few months, and I'm guessing they didn't want eat into there own sales with other hardware.
  • I'm guessing £37 a month on o2 might get the 925 if it goes on spesh
  • My 920 only charging to 70% now, Have been wait on news when this will be released to be honest Nokia needs to pick it up a little 3 months wait till those of us outside the US can get there latest phones really Nokia?
  • I'm originally from the UK and live in the USA and I have this phone on AT&T. I urge all of my country men and women who are even on the fence about this phone to get it. It is spectacular.
  • +1020 FTW!
  • Is vodafone getting this beast? Cant wait..
  • Just spotted one as I left work, in Brighton UK. It looked gorgeous!
  • What store?
  • Wow
  • Having just spoken to two major retailers I can confirm that the 1020 will not come out tomorrow in the UK. The retailers in question have all received a 1020 today for display purposes only that is embargoed until tomorrow. Tomorrow Nokia will announce the UK release date.
