It’s finally here. Nokia World 2013 is in full swing and the expected has finally happened. Nokia has announced the Lumia 1520, a device with many firsts for both Windows Phone and Nokia. It’s a device many have highly anticipated, one that is set to rival large smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy Note family of devices. Here are the full specs for the Lumia 1520.
Like we’ve reported in the past, the Lumia 1520 is packing a 6-inch display. That display is notable for sporting a 1080p resolution, a first for Windows Phone. It’s gorgeous and has your favorite features like Nokia’s ClearBlack technology, super sensitive touch, great visibility in sunlight and Gorilla Glass 2.
Imaging is another area Nokia is very strong and the Lumia 1520 looks like it’ll live up to those expectations.

With the camera module you’re getting Zeiss optics, optical image stabilization, 2X lossless zoom with oversampling, and dual LED flash for lighting up the scene.
