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?

  • That is amazing. Love the green
  • Seems greener.
  • +1520 for the title
  • /\ THIS
  • I love green but this too much neon green for my taste. Wish it were a darker green.
  • I love how Dan is casually sipping an appletini in the background lol not a bad job these guys have got at all
  • THIS. lol
  • Best part of the video!
  • +1520. Good on you, Dan.  That green looks great!
  • Well it is the same colour as the phone...
  • 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!
  • Blech! They should call it "Kermit Green".
  • It's more of a 'Snifter' green than lime green.
  • I totally want this
  • 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.
  • Always dreamed about a green 920.. ;(
  • I would love to but already have white L1520. I would consider if I'm in market for one.
  • Ehhhh maybe chicks will rock it!
  • Personally have never seen the attraction of these loud colours, professional, classy black for me!
  • Which they have those options as well.
  • 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
  • Same here. Professional black for me as well.
  • If the Icon came out in that color on Verizon, my sister would jump on it when she got to upgrade from her 822.
  • When?
  • I love green, but I wish that this was a glossy finish. Nokia, please bring back glossy polycarbonate bodies!
  • Yea I agree, glossy would look better.
  • I actually prefer matte. I had a glossy red 920 and it was a fingerprint magnet.
  • Same, I have a glossy 820 and would definitely prefer matte next time. I just like the texture and look a lot more.
  • I bought a charging cover (yellow) and it is matte ;-)
  • 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 purchased the yousave clear one piece hard case on amazon. It looks great on my yellow 1520. $5.
  • Would perfer a matte glow in the dark lime green
  • No, matte is much better!
  • 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.
  • That just means you have dirty ass hands.
  • 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
  • Amazing.
  • 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.
  • lol, how many pluses do I have to give this to make it come true????
  • Hey Mr. Sabri, typo on seved I think you meant served? Don't mean to correct you but its there.
  • fixed, thanks
  • Dan I just wanted to say that you all have the coolest job!
  • Come to the states....Please!
  • Looks sooooo damn awesome!! :-)
  • I will swap my black one out for the green if it comes to att
  • 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.
  • Awesome.
  • 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
  • lol liked that? Mark's idea.
  • Yeah! I always like when videos start by making me laugh. ;D
  • Even the drink is colour coordinated with the green Lumia 1520 :D
  • He was having lemonade, as he says when god gives you lemon, you make lemonade
  • lol Dan looks so smug in that
  • Too Oregon for my tastes...
  • If he's referring to what I think he's referring to, then I like this guy.
  • the Ducks?
  • Hate the Yucks
  • Haha Ducks suck. Go Broncos!
  • 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!
  • Yesterday Cyan was only a Color
    Transcendence
    April 18
  • April 18th? I didn't get it.
  • http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2593966848/tt2209764?ref_=tt_ov_i lol
  • Lol! I see what you did there. ;-)
  • Cyan is certainly better than Cherry Blossom Pink.
  • Green is cool.
  • If they only could shrink this to 5" with same specs and keep qi and SD.
  • Is that not the 930? I know it's thicker but you have to put that 20mp camera somewhere haha.
  • It doesn't have SD. Posted via the WPC App for Android!
  • Except they dropped the SD card support on the 930 :(
  • And the 1520 does have a 20 MP camera.
  • I sure as hell would! Especially if it meant I would get 8.1 sooner!
  • I've been literally waiting forever for Nokia to make my favorite color!!!
  • Lime green is my favorite color!
  • I'd upgrade from my yellow 920 to that....
  • It looks great, but I like the orange one more. :)
  • I'd love to trade in my black 1520 for an orange one!
  • 930 in orange looks awesome.
  • 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.....  
  • Que chulo! I am green with envy
  • I just bought my yellow 1520 3 weeks ago , i guess i should've waited
  • 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!
  • Terrible low light quality and video? Where did that crawl out from?
  • Damn Vodafone only stocked my L1520 in black ... :(
  • 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!!!
  • every 1530 has expandable storage,att version just doesnt have qi,has everything else
  • woops i meant if it has 32 g of storage instead of the 16 g :P i jumped the gun on that :D
  • 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.
  • Soooo, where is the green 1520 headed? Pray tell.
  • Anyone know if this is still staying only AT&T or is going to go to other carriers? (US ver.)
  • Why didn't they think of this when they were making 1020. :-/
  • Glasgow Celtic fans are gonna love this...
  • +1520
  • Sure. If it's not on Verizon or AT&T.
  • +1020
  • I'd kill for such a phone (written from a red Lumia with a limelight green cover :D).
  • I want It! But, I like the 930 better
  • Would love info on this, I'm hoping I'll be able to swap the shell at some point
  • Hands on with 930, where is it???
  • My question is that is wp8.1 features are all covered?
  • This green looks awesome
  • 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
  • Green sounds sweet if I owned anything green. I'll pass
  • 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.
  • Does the line green look the same on the lumia 930?
  • Would you say he's green with envy?
  • i will wait for the Lumia 930.
  • But does it glow in the dark?
  • Prefer the yellow or white. Never mind, I want this babe with 8.1 in any colour!
  • Sinestro's not jealous, plus he already has his 1520.
  • @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?      
  • They're hording the blue color to sell it later at a higher price. xD
  • Should have made it Boston Celtics dark type of green, not this light color green
  • No way. Dark colors = boring.
  • 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.
  • Is it me or  the Lumia 1520 is looking smaller over time? 
  • Here^^
  • Will any 1520 or 930 come to T-Mobile?? That's what I want to know.
  • Hell yea!!!
  • Great for St Patrick's day. Lol
  • 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.
  • Seems slow..*
  • I would
  • I'm going to get it, but I really wish it had virtual buttons. :..[
  • Too girly, sucks.
  • But is it made out of recycled plastic? Green series... Would be a marketing idea.
  • Aww, you missed an opportunity to use "envious" in the title to create a pun, I like puns.
  • 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...
  • I'd get one since my old standbys of cyan and yellow aren't available.
  • 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...
  • Lime green is pretty damn solid. But admittedly, I would've liked a brilliant emerald green.
  • This one for the Green Activist in you.
  • 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!
  • I love lime green not green...
  • Very cool color!
  • I'll stick with black. Its every color and no color.
  • I want.
  • My son would LOVE that.
  • Oh hellz yeah ill rock that!!
  • Does it have 32gb and qi wireless charging? Wake me up when it does.
  • Exactly. I'll buy a rainbow-colored 1520 if it shows up on AT&T with 32gb and qi wireless charging.
  • Great colour but got a bit annoyed when the presenter announced it No-keeya.
  • I definitely would. That's a definite head-turner being so large and vibrant. Plus it's a pretty powerful device.
  • Whoa!!!  That hurt my eyes.
  • New Lumia 1520 - The Incredible Hulk.
  • ^^Excellent!
  • 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.
    IT'S AWESOME!!!
  • 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?
  • Hulk will be jealous
  • I find the choice of 4 colors only rather limited (Nokia used us to have a wider range ...).       _________________________________________________ iphone 5s prix ipad mini 2
  • I would SO do this! Maybe even have my car painted to match. Definitely if it glows in the dark:)
  • Green.... ok, did they finally fix their blunder and integrate the wireless charging or just change a $0.90 case?
