Nokia Lumia 1020 leaked on AT&T's YouTube channel

It's happened before and it will happen again. On Thursday, someone flipped the switch too early and posted a Lumia 1020 video on AT&T's YouTube channel ahead of the official unveiling by Nokia in New York City at 8:00 a.m. PDT.

Within an hour of the video's unveiling, however, it was marked private. However, typical of the Internet, what is uploaded stays uploaded, and the video is available -- though not on AT&T's channel -- embedded below.

Although the device has not been unveiled yet, a number of things are already known about it. For one, it will sport a 41-megapixel PureView camera (Nokia already tipped this feature when they promised the event will give users 41 million reasons to zoom in). Other leaked specs include a Xenon flash and a "pro camera" app that will allow users to change ISO, white balance, manual focus, and shutter speed. It is also rumored to allwo a user to the toggle aspect ratio on photos and to enable a "dual capture" mode that takes images at different resolutions simultaneously.

The Lumia 1020 will reportedly also come with 2GB of RAM, which should help the device's performance.  It will, as you might expect, carry Windows Phone 8.

It should include the optical image stabilization (OIS) technology that Nokia first built into the Lumia 920 last year. Although unconfirmed, this is a new flagship phone, and it pretty much has to include OIS.
