Green Nokia Lumia 1520 reportedly coming to AT&T

Lumia 1520 Green

Right now the most advanced Windows Phone device is a tie between the Nokia Lumia 1520 and Lumia Icon. They pack nearly identical tech, just in different packages. The Lumia 1520 has a 1080p display on a 6-inch screen, while the Icon packs the same resolution into 5-inch screen. Other than that the two smartphones are identical in specs (yes, the Lumia 1520 has a microSD slot). However, the Lumia Icon is only available in black or white. The Lumia 1520 is a little more Nokia in that it has a handful of colors, one of which will reportedly soon be green.

Leaker evleaks took to Twitter again to share some information about AT&T’s upcoming Windows Phone roadmap. On it is a green Lumia 1520 that will come when the line gets “relaunched” for Windows Phone 8.1. The color will of course be optional, but it couldn’t hurt to see more color in Nokia’s lineup.

Would you rock a green Lumia 1520 with Windows Phone 8.1? Sound off below.

Green Nokia Lumia 1520 reportedly coming to AT&T

222 Comments

Lol after seeing the x, this phone almost looks ugly to me. I'm totally jealous that they come out with this color at launch when I got my red. I actually wanted yellow and settled for red.

Yeah, the could have made the 520, 520+, 520XL instead of the X line seeing that there wouldn't have been R&D funds spent like it was on the X line.......Just being funny about the whole thing, but guess the Asha OS and hardware wasn't flying off shelves like the Finn Nation continuously says in this forum.

I saw and touched a 1520 for the first time the other day.  D*mn those things are big!  It seemed more like a tablet.  They're pretty though.

I really, really liked the 925... but I'm waiting on 8.1 before I buy anything.  I don't want to wait around for AT&T to update anything.

Are you just not fond of that shade of green or are you saying the Nokia X has tainted the goodness of the color? I'm not trolling you; I honestly am just wondering.

The goodness of the color had been tainted. That shade of green is almost synonymous with Android, so much so that Nokia used it in their Nokia X advertising. Would not want to lump a Windows Phone into that category.

Buy unlocked, sim free. You will pay top dollar (peso) but you will be a happy camper like me rocking a phone unavailable here.

You can buy the brown Nillkin cover, I have it for my yellow 1520 and the combination actually looks not bad, though I eventually ended up switching it with a genuine Nokia flip cover (forgot the model name) as I wanted more protection for my screen...

Actually, a brown case would look pretty nice. I'm not sure what kind of case you were talking about, but I was imagining some kind of brown leather case.

Yeah same here. I'm sort of scared to use my phone when I'm using apps, IE or something. I truly hope that they will fix it with an update of some sort soon.

I actually have it on normal. Its especially noticeable when using the Craigslist app alot of accidental presses while trying to scroll.

I had that problem too... Try this to see if it solves the

problem 1: go to the settings 2: click on ease of access 3 make sure ur screen magnifier is turned off.

 

 

And who release the black update? Microsoft or Nokia? The question then becomes is this the reason Android has its issues (Not an Android user currently, but I once was). This is why MS is trying to keep third parties out of the core OS and why they are slow with updates because they put any new update through rigorous testing instead of rushing to add a feature yet we cry until it is released.

Not sure why Nokia hasn't addressed this issue? Honestly I'm getting pissed. There's screen flickering, short lag when switching screens, now I'm starting to get occasional random reboots. We'll see what happens after 8.1.

Looks like they lost control on touch sensitivity when dealing with anti-glare and other things.

Even Icon is just shy to perfect; lacking glance screen blessing.

Hopefully, both issues will be resolved with 8.1 by that time more devices will be launched with something missing..

With 21 lumia devices publically released so far (and many experimental devices), most people expect them to remake a perfect device like 920 with modern hardware and better cam.

8.1 and black are two separate updates released by two differenct companies....Black is Nokias issue and they should fix it

Hopefully they will fix the antenna performance on the newer ones. My 1520 had some serious issues with cellular reception.

I like the lighter green in this picture better than the darker green that was in the Facebook pic.....maybe I'm just blind.....

I prefer the more robust dark green pictured in FB. Not liking the washed-out green pictured in the article, maybe because ii reminds me too much of that robot in faded anemic green used as logo.

Hope they bring the dark green to the international market.

Hate to tell you...there is only one kind of green...the difference has to do with the camera used, camera settings, lighting, and post processes of each photo...sorry to bust your bubble!

This is perfect!!! A green 1520 by the time my WP7.8 contract ends and it will have WP8.1!!!!!!!

Seems more like a presentation phone to me or for those that veg on a lot of video. Not something I want as a daily driver. I need a more professional device. This is Xbox country.

Yes, especially the Qi version of it. I'm not buying all my chargers again (not that I could if I wanted to since you can't get PMA versions of all the Nokia chargers).

Ditto on Qi version. I should have included that in my comment. If it is PMA it will be useless to me. I've invested too much money in various Qi charging accesories for home and work.

I would only pick it up and get rid of my red 1520 if it has wireless charging built in. Why can't ATT let the consumer decide. Enough with forcing PMA to us.

Nope. 2 reasons. A) I'm in Canada. B) I'm very happy with my 1020.

This does make me hopeful that a future phone will come in green though.

Abso-flippin-lutely!
I do like this yellow 1520 though, and I'd probably take one in cyan like my 920 before one in green.
Speaking of the 920, why can't we just get the same phone with a 5" display, and 1520 internals?
Now that I think of it, I don't really want a green 1520 as badly as I thought.

I would never pick the 1520 because I find it too big and too ugly.
But I'd go for a green Nokia as long as it is not too bright. Or a purple one like they had on the 620.
Though in the end I normally go for black and leave the colouring to the cases.

Too bad they won't be making any true Nokias for you anymore, regardless of the colour.  Sadly, you'll be out of luck and will have to move to android phone and forum.  Tick, tick, tick.

You have a valid point. Still I'd be willing to bet if you used a 1520 for a week you'd think differently.

Yeah, the 1520 isn't that big at all.. It's relatively big, but a mouse, is relatively big to a lady bug.. As long as you have an adult body it's not too big at all.. As a matter of fact, after using it for a few hours I forgot that it was bigger than my 920... Trust me.. Just try a XLS for a few days the next time around.. You won't be taking it back...
...........................
And, ugly??.... Have you lost your mind❔❔❔.. I get complements on the damn device all the time❕❕

I'm right there with you. I get compliments on my phone all the time just on the size and design alone. I'm used to the size now, and forget that it is 6". Certainly not ugly that's for sure

Hope the Green will be better than that ATT Red that's kinda orange but not orange enough to look cool but still not really red....

Which model? I rode the 2013 ZX10R recently, fantastic bike! I'd buy the little 300 or the ZX6R 636 though. :)

If this 1520 is identical to our current 1520, and relauches with WP8.1-0xxxx on board, then isn't that positive news for current 1520 users? Because, if the "refreshed" 1520 runs 8.1 then all of the carrier testing will be complete, and the update should be ready for current 1520 users sooner than expected.... See what I'm saying❔

That might be wishful thinking with ATT. Knowing them they'd probably hold the update back hoping you'd buy a new one.

I would buy it if it was available up here in Canada...love green color..hope Rogers will pick it up too...fingers crossed

Just bought my red one and I'm content with it. Now if I was Bruce Banner, I would be getting a little upset right now....

The color looks great, although I really want one with the cobalt WP theme color (or some kind of indigo). But no to any non-Qi phone. I'll get the 1020's successor if it has that. Otherwise, it's the Lumia 920 for me forever.

I would love green, though I still just want them to bring Cyan back. My sister would be in love with Purple if they made it available.

I don't understand this relationship, in the US, between hardware and carriers. Why are specific specs, flavors, software releases (like Black etc), even colors, of phone models tied to a carrier? In Europe I can just go and get a phone of any spec and color, if the Carrier I choose has that model at all (and I am in Denmark, not the biggest market ever). I would have expected the US to have a very flexible approach, but it seems not. Perhaps someone can enlighten me what the rational is.

Marketing really. Its the same reason why there used to be so many variants of the galaxy s and galaxy s2 family of devices between us carriers. Carriers want something that is exclusive to them to try and trounce the other carriers.

Forget Nokzzzzzzzz, what other OEMs are on that roadmap??? I got a contract renewal in July and I'm gonna need a new 8.1 phone.

They always announce partners...but then the partners fall by the wayside soon after...Sony, Dell, LG, Samsung...to name a few...they might make a phone that never gets released... or make one run at it...or recycle hardware from Android...none of them truly committed...just getting their name mentioned in a Microsoft Press announcement...

As a university of Oregon Alum and Duck fanatic I could rock a yellow phone in the left hand and a green phone in the right and seriously turn some heads this fall during football season :) 

With University of Oregons mega branding I always thought some kind of yellow Lumia promo would be a match made in heaven. Put a Nike swoosh on it to and you would sell a million in Oregon alone. Hmmm MicroNikea has a nice ring to it :)

Then I can rock a red phone in the left hand and a black phone in the right and say Stanford owns the Ducks.  Thanks for the idea!

I wouldn't say own in this modern era over the last 4 years we won 2 in a row, you won 2 in a row. Our wins were against the Andrew Luck Toby Gerhart teams yours were against the Marcus Mariota led teams so both teams were loaded with talent in all those games, and playing the brand of football they are known for, speed vs power. This years game is the tie breaker and can begin to lay claim on who owns who in the conference, but realistically it needs to play out over a couple more years

I will give you props for rocking a red/black phone as long as you know Oregon innovated the idea :)

I wouldn't really do it because that would be ultra-nerdy and probably not well-received by football fans.  Nevertheless, I'm just having fun with you and it's always nice to identify a fellow Pac-12 alum.  I don't think it's quite even because the Cardinal has won the last two in a row, but I do understand that the period of ownership has been relatively brief.  We'll see what happens this year!

This SUCKS for Tmobile customers. If I had a 1525 option I never would've got a Note 3.

I wanted a cyan 1520 so bad, but since Nokia didn't seem to make one, I ended up buying the yellow one... It's nice and all, don't get me wrong, but a cyan 1520 would've looked so much nicer and would've been a fitting sibling to my retired cyan Lumia 900...
Uh well... :-)

I really like the 1520 but there are some issues with the screen sensetivity, speaker cracks, wifi and others that make me think twice. I have the Note 2 and never had problems. I love the camera on the 1520 and other things but dont know if i would like the IE. The zoom seems quite different and from what i have seen when we double tap the text doesnt resize to screen. If i buy it, it will be my first WP.

Thanks, Nokia, for releasing the green Lumia 920 I wanted so badly. I'm not mad having the beautiful yellow 920 at all, but I would have preferred a green one...
Here, have this river I cried for you.

WP CENTRAL should give 'voice' to the 1520 owners to explain wich are the problems that they are facing with the 1520. It could turn out to be usefull to some how make some pressure to Nokia sort out those issues that should not be on a flagship smartphone like Nokia Lumia 1520. I hope that WP CENTRAL can help those that helped this site grow...

It would be nice if ATT would bump the storage memory up to 32gb withe the relaunch and have support for the 128gb micro SD cards.

because it green does that mean it uses less energy, thats a joke. I like it I want to be a filmmaker and its kinda green screen green

From the current colors I'd purchase the 1520 on either yellow or black. But I wish we had some other colors to pick like cyan, green, orange and dark blue.
