Have questions about the Nokia Lumia 1520? Ask away in our forums as someone has one

84

The Nokia Lumia 1520 was announced last week and for the most part, we already know what we need to know about it. It’s a 6-inch 1080P LCD display device with a 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, it comes with 16 or 32 GB of internal storage, it has microSD expansion and takes a Nano SIM. To power it all, it has a massive 3400 mAh battery and an oversampling 20 MP rear PureView camera.

But wait, you want more information? Although major tech sites are awaiting official review units from Nokia, including ourselves, you can head into our forums to discuss. How so? Forum member 'ALpHa.Q.RoUgH' evidently has one on hand and is taking your questions (you can even see some photos of the device, like the one above).
