Lumia 1020 to Cost £550 in the United Kingdom

It's been a month since Nokia unveiled the Lumia 1020 at an event in New York and we finally have a price for the device in the United Kingdom. Well, a preliminary price at least. Crave reports that one UK retailer has priced the phone at £550 unlocked. Though Nokia hasn't announced an official price, this figure is roughly what shoppers can expect to pay for any high end phone off contract.

The Lumia 1020 features a 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4, which is backed up with 32 GB of internal storage (non-expandable) and 7GB of SkyDrive storage courtesy of Microsoft, as well as 4G LTE support. Of course, it's got that all important 41 MP camera as well as a 1.2 MP front-facing camera. The phone sports a 4.5-inch AMOLED Puremotion display with a resolution of 1,280x768 pixels.

Nokia said in July that the UK would get the device in the third quarter, which means no later than September, though it still doesn't have an official release date. The device launched in the United States on AT&T on July 26.
