It seems like Microsoft has been developing a new device under the Lumia series that features a camera bump that's almost the same size with the 41-MP Lumia 1020. The leaked photos came from a Chinese auction site and identified the device as "Nokia RM-1052". People are speculating that this mysterious device could possibly be the successor to Lumia 1020, the rumored "Nokia McLaren", which was reported to have been cancelled by Microsoft.
We can see on the photos that the Nokia RM-1052 is clearly a prototype, indicating "Property of Microsoft Mobile" and "Not for Sale". The handset features a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM. The most obvious feature is the raised camera housing which dominates the back of the device.

The cancelled Nokia McLaren was supposed to showcase Microsoft's Kinect-like Windows Phone gestures, floating off-screen gesture support and 3D Touch technology. These features would mean Kinect-style interaction and motion gestures with the phone. Well, for now, none has been officially confirmed yet by Microsoft. We'll keep you posted. Stay tuned.
