Green Lumia 1520 is so green the Green Lantern would be jealous

Last night we went to visit Nokia at their #moreLumia event here in San Francisco. There wasn’t anything new learned there, it served more as a recap with Stephen Elop over the announcement made earlier of the Lumia 630, Lumia 635 and Lumia 930. We did get hands-on time with the devices and even some others that didn’t get too much time in the limelight. Lime...Green…Green Lumia 1520. It’s awesome.

Be honest, how many of you would rock a bright green Lumia 1520 with Windows Phone 8.1?

Green Lumia 1520 is so green the Green Lantern would be jealous


I love how Dan is casually sipping an appletini in the background lol not a bad job these guys have got at all

Why is Verizon so damn BORING??????????

All these colors is what makes the Lumia so attractive and I can't get anything but black or white!

I'd rock the green phone. It really isn't that different then rocking the bright red 920 I have now. From an eye-catching perspective that is.

I for one can find the phone easier with the yellow that is my 1020 instead of that iPhone which was constantly being misplaced - I think the colors make the phones stand out from the Samsung and others

You got that right
My yellow 1020 are visible where ever I put it down :)
So finished with boring black and grey :P

I love green, but I wish that this was a glossy finish. Nokia, please bring back glossy polycarbonate bodies!

you can just put a full body protector....glossy here you are!

i got a yellow one, made it glossy with back  wet protector.

I have white Lumia 620 with matte finish and catch yellow stain within one week when I brought it. Glossy is much better which doesn't catch stain my cousin sis has white Lumia 625 and no stain on it.

I have a yellow matte 1020 and a yellow 820 with no stains. Just because you managed to stain yours doesn't mean it's a problem with the matte finish.

How can light yellow stain will be visible on bright yellow matte finish, I have seen most of Lumia 620 in white colour had yellow stain on it

I'd rock it on Tmobile! Hell I'd rock Team Magenta with a Magenta 1520 on Tmobile! I'd really take anything TMOBILE can give. It will all seem faster.

Hey Mr. Sabri, typo on seved I think you meant served? Don't mean to correct you but its there.

The 1520 looks sensational in green... Totally wanting one to replace my black 920! But I'm also thinking about the 930 in black too! If the green one had a black aluminum frame it would look much better though.

I love Daniel in the background drinking and observing with righteous smugness.  Best video yet!  

"Hi! I'm Sam Sabri and I'm here working while my boss is in the background looking over my shoulder and having a drink" lol

Whatever happened to the colour Cyan??? Don't tell me it morphed into a firmware name, and it is going to stay there forever! Really, no rhyme or reason for dropping cyan!

Reminds me of my old metallic lime green Moto Q9C I had with US Cellular way back when.  So yes, If I was on ATT I think I would.....


Give me this effin phone with 32GB and a decent camera. Not the one with the terrible low light quality and video and you have me sold!

Is it the same as the other 1520's? No wireless charging? no expandable storage? Need to know asap, im going to be on my way to buy a red 1520 on my lunch but ill wait if it has wireless charging and expandable storage!!!

Not hating on Nokia, but I had erroneously jumped to the assumption we would see more hardware. That 1030 with Qi looks unlikely now though, judging by the hump comments from the designer.

I like green, but not blinding, glaring mint green. I generally don't mind brightly colored phones (I have a yellow 1020) but that's too loud even for me.

I thought the concept of the colours was really cool initially, at this point I'm over it though. I'll probably just end up getting a 930 with the white back. I especially don't like how they got rid of Cyan. I like consistency with my colors. I have a Surface 2 with a cyan type cover and a 920 with Nokia's cyan cover. Now there is no more Cyan so I'll just stick to basic non colored devices

I planned on getting a green 930, until they said it wasn't coming to the States. I'm so bitter. Yesterday would have gone perfect, if they ended the keynote with phone announcements for everyone.

I noticed these are nonbranded. Did they give any confirmation (aside from evleaks) that these would be AT&T?

Even cooler if they built PMA into it. Yes, burn me at the stake for saying that, haha. Really, at this point I'm indifferent to what they settle on, just please have it built-in. And I own four wireless plates already.

@WPCentral what every happened to Nokia Blue?  The 920 was the last phone that had that as an option and WTF? Sure Green is awesome, and you need the black and white phones for those with a more bland persona. Yellow, Red, Orange, Green and no BLUE? Again, WTF?




This Green 1520 looks different in every pic. Even the video of it playing on the wall in the background makes it look far more Kelly Green.

what about a cyan one? how can nokia talk about a future firmware update called cyan without having so many lumias in cyan? matte cyan and matte yellow are my alltime favorite colors :) looking forward to seeing more cyan lumias :)

Windows 8.1 code came was blue. You would think wp8.1 may also be blue. Makes sense why the Nokia update has a color like blue.

Anyone notice that the rear of this phone didn't have 3 little wireless charging contacts on the rear? Maybe it's an rm-938 color variant that will work on T-mobile with Qi built in! Haha, wishful thinking...

green looks awesome, but since itll release with 8.1, do we know if itll still have the capacitive buttons? would be a great incentive to switch if it only had onscreen buttons...

I like the green, but I'm really wanting matte cyan to be an option.  I love that about my 920.  I'd like my next Lumia to be cyan!

This phone is the very pinnacle of the WP hardware universe.

If it comes to AT&T, retains built in charging (of any kind) and 32 GB, I'm handing them my cash.

I've wanted a green 920 since they first announced the 920, but I'd prefer an emerald green over the lime green.  So...  Gimme an emerald green 930, and I'll upgrade in a heartbeat.

Freaking love that video! Martini sippn' HAHA you guys rock!

This phone is definitely the logical choice for Bruce Banner, and I WANT ONE! Once it finally hits AT&T I will be second guessing my 1020 DAILY!!!

I am also PRAYING that the flagship devices will CONTINUE to have capacitive buttons that ARE NOT ON SCREEN.

IMHO it gives the perception of a MASSIVE bezel!

Plus, don't you guys remember the wp7 days when everyone was clamouring for a capacitive button lock option for playing games?

^^^^ This is going to happen all over again because now the buttons are even closer!

Can DAN or SAM confirm whether or not flasgship US WP will continue to have actual capacitive buttons?
