Nokia will unveil the Lumia 1020 later today at a special press event, The Verge's sources claim. When it's unveiled, the Windows Phone-based handset will come with a 41-megapixel PureView camera, a 4.5-inch AMOLED screen, and 2GB of RAM. The handset will also boast 32GB of storage.

The rumor mill has been running wild for weeks over what the Lumia 1020 might or might not offer. Several leaks have suggested that the device will feature a 41-megapixel camera. There's also been talk of a larger screen. Judging by the official press photos, those rumors were correct all along.
