First photo of the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet revealed, dwarfs the Lumia 1020

At the end of September, Nokia is reportedly going to reveal at least two new devices here in New York: their Windows 8 RT tablet, codenamed Sirius and the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet.

The Lumia 1520 will feature a huge six-inch 1080P display, a polycarbonate body (not metal) with a 20 MP PureView camera akin to the Lumia 925’s design, specifications that we revealed last week from our verified sources. The device will also feature a quad-core Snapdragon CPU and Windows Phone 8 GDR3 for the new 1080P support.

The image above was leaked to us and while we cannot confirm it, we have a suspicion that is accurate. For one, it comes with what looks like an optional back case with a front cover to protect the display. We also wouldn’t be surprised if it adds Qi wireless charging capability as well. It's placed next to what appears to be a Lumia 1020 for size comparison. 

The other bit of evidence is that the display and bezel appear to closely match that of a leaked bezel from back in January, back when Nokia’s intention of making a phablet device were becoming clear. Everything from the Nokia label to the sensor locations to the thin bezel at the bottom appear to correspond. While not a slam dunk conclusion that at least favors a positive interpretation of the leaked photo.

We'll also note the standard proto.nokia.com etching at the bottom, as found on all Nokia tester phones.

Finally, with the display turned on we can see that as we would expect, there are three columns of Live Tiles now, including the ability to fit one double wide next to a medium sized tile. That feature would be needed due to the increased 1080P support found in GDR3.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 is expected to land on AT&T under the codename 'Bandit' and other carriers by November.

Windows Phone Central has not vetted the source of the image, so we cannot verify at this time. We will try to dig deeper and see what we can find.

  • Oh yeah. That red looks delicioius. Also I think I'm really going to like the amount of tiles I have above the fold on the 1520. 
  • It would look really crazy to pepper it with the small tiles and nothing else.
  • That'll be a fun thing to try. This phone looks sexy. I refuse to call it a ph...t.
  • I hate the word phablet too. It just sounds... wrong. lol
  • Would have been easier to call it a tone.
  • Tablone?
  • Toblerone?
  • +1520
  • best comment. awesome
  • Big Phone?
  • Small tablet? :)
  • 5.5" is more appropriate size for my taste.  They might be forced to use 6" in order to sqeeze in the third column.
  • I would imagine that physical size has nothing to do with tile size support but rather that resolution and aspect ratio matter more.
  • LOL. Good one @wookie301. And I thought I was the only one who didn't like "phablet".
  • I agree... anything above 5" should be called... an XLP (Extra Large Phone)
  • I always keep saying it like "faplet" and THAT is awkward
  • I really hope this device come's with built in wireless charging, that cover looks to me more like a kickstand for the device ... Fingers Crossed !!!
  • I think it won't.. There is a wireless charging shell attached to it. Look at the edges..
  • I dunno it looks more like a flip case as it looks like the bit under the 1020 is attached.
  • Oops.. I didn't see it.. Just ignore my comment.. Thanks :)
  • Although the people below stating it's unlikely that they will build wireless charging into a device until the standard war has ended have a very valid point (as dissapointing as it is)
  • It looks to me that the flip case may have keyboard, that would be great.
  • It looks like it has a tri-fold design, much like the ipad folding covers.
  • I'll get one if I can find it in Cyan!!!! Lol
  • Yes more Cyan Please!!!
  • You took the words right out of my mouth. Cyan all the way!
  • Count me in too. Through in the 41MP preview variant, expandable storage sd slot, built in Qi, and it would be right up there with about perfect. The only thing to make it better would be a delicious 5 row high quality slide out keyboard (hell make it an optional accessory even with a built in extra battery) and it'd be perfect at that point.
  • +1
    literally PERFECTION (with an optional keyboard that is)
  • Why is the app menu button sit so high❔... When scrolled all the way down it shouldn't go almost 3/4 the way up the screen.. What's up with that❔
  • Because there's not enough tiles on the home screen to push it down to where you need to scroll.
  • It might be because of the lack of apps. The picture shows the 1520s screen only with a handful of apps so the menu button has to be a bit more to the top than usual.
  • Good explanation..
  • I think it's intentionally left blank to hide new features in Windows GDR3 - my guess is toggle switches for quick access to settings like wifi, BT, etc..
  • I agree I like the red. Also, am I the only one who noticed the case the phone is in? It is like a mini Smart Cover or something similar to what BlackBerry did with a Z10 case (their Flip Shell). I like it.
  • My precious :p
  • Why is it running phone os?
  • Because most phones around the 6-inch and under mark will probably run Windows Phone, while 7-inch and up will probably get Windows 8. (Until the two crash and become one OS)
  • Which is in 5 yrs time?
  • I'm predicting a year and a half from now. Complete conjecture.
  • What does the Galaxy Note run?
  • It runs a malware software that collects user data sold for money. Very different from this.
  • And the kids love it!
  • lol nice summary.
    you forgot to mention viruses :P
  • Lol
  • Great shot rockstarzzzz I'm going steal it next time see the question
  • That was funny. :)
  • +∞
  • Yes, it does..
  • @rockstarzz: Best answer ever!
  • Haha. :D
  • +1520
  • ROFL, dude you just made my day :D
  • Runs hyperbole and tears.
  • I want the truth!    You can't handle the truth! Good one!
  • This made me laugh too hard...
  • Atleast that has youtube and google maps. What does WP have? 
     
    WP is a ghost town. Do these phones too catch virus? freeze or do a BSOD?
  • It has Youtube apps which are great, and Nokia Maps, which are free to download and keep on the phone. No streaming needed.
  • Butthurt huh?
  • Quite right. This one collects user data for the NSA for nothing.
  • +1520
  • $649
  • "phablet" stands for "phone/tablet" - i.e. a phone big enough to be considered a tablet.
  • Because its a phone. It still runs phone os. Phablet just means that its a phone with a size similar to a tablet.
  • HOLY SHOOT this looks awesome. 
  • That's what she said.
  • Doesn't really work in this situation.
  • And I thought I was the only one to think this was a poor time to use the phrase...
  • "That's what." -She
  • lol well played bro
  • I wonder if girls use this joke as much but with 'he said'.
  • No. Girls aren't so stupid.
  • except when they drive cars :)
     
  • +hit and run
  • +text and smash
  • Or talk.
  • I think girls would use 'phablet' like.. Hey how long does your boy has it?.. Like a normal phone, and yours? Like a PHABLET XD
  • MyLady thinks a six inch is the optimum size (and that thicker is better)
  • Must resist...
  • I'd love one....but I'm not spending another dime on AT&T if the 920 is how all my products will be handled by them.
  • Agree
  • I've had a few issues with my 920. The last issue was a cracked screen courtesy of my 3 year old. I almost would've had to jump through hoops to get a new one from At&t without using an upgrade. Leaving infuriated and nothing resolved I went to the Microsoft Store and for $99 I was given a NEW 920 any color i would like, i had the Black one and changed to Cyan, and a 2 year warranty covering everything except for lost or stolen. Any issues i have from here on out I'm going back to the Microsoft Store. Upgrades as well will be done through them also.
  • +1520 MS store FTW! ;-)
  • That's like complaining about how your teenage kid crashed your 3 year old Civic and Honda wouldn't give you a new one for anything less than what they would normally charge.
  • I don't think your expectations were reasonable. You (or your kid rather) were responsible for damage and now the carrier has to give you subsidized pricing? Also, how is this an issue with your 920? This is an issue you have with at&t.
  • Looks like a huge 8x
  • Or a huge 720
  • A huge 720, Yes, thats what it is.
  • Is it possible for the 3 rows of tiles to come to the smaller screen, or logistically it won't fit in an aesthetic way on a less than 5in screen?
  • Sam posted something like 6 months back with this layout on a 920 & for me it would work.
  • I don't think you would be able to fit three mediums on a L920 even if you squeezed them together to ensure there was no spacing it would not work. Imagine it may work for displays about 4.8 inchs at the minimum but that may be a stretch.
  • I did a screen shot of the tiles from Sam's old post and I liked it. So for some maybe not but I personally liked it.
  • I just did it on my Lumia 820 too and it looked really awesome!!
  • Umm. The screens dimensions can be whatever. Its the resolution that matters. Because the tiles are all a set pixel size not dependent on the inches of the display.
  • 3 rows I believe are only for devices that have 1080 screens
  • Very interesting; looks like an odd aspect ratio.  Is it 16:9 like the 8X?
    I hope it has WP on it and not RT.  RT should be only for true tablets and not phones!
  • This is a phone. Not a tablet or PC. It will have WP OS. The dont put RT on phones.
  • WP8
  • Well if it's 1080p then it will be 16:9 not 5:3. (15:9 like the 92x series and such using 768p)
  • Good point, thanks!
  • Ridicoulous ! 
    It looks pretty genuine to me... especially with the cover.. will be a shame if it doesn't come with a pen. 
  • It's a trip to me that just a few years ago having a pen (stylus) was one of the worst things a device could have. Things had to be "finger friendly".
     
  • That's what I call the Steve Jobs effect.
  • No need for a pen, its a lumia. Use a dagger or pneumatic drill as a stylus, itl bw fine!
  • Haha, gold!
  • or a car key... :)
  • Its a toss up between this and a 7inch windows 8 tablet for me. I don't see the point in getting both but I can't see myself using this as a phone and I hate Bluetooth earpieces. Maybe ill use a wired headset...
  • Why is it a toss up? .. They are two completely different OS.. It is what do you want a phone or a computer?.. Lol
  • Go 7" W8. You can do so much more with it. And the apps will come eventually.
  • That's not a 920. The Nokia logo is in the middle, not the top right. Could be the 1020.
  • You can see the hole for the lanyard strip and the matte black shell. it's a 1020 for sure. 
  • ^this
  • It's a 920... Look @ the way it curves in @ the bottom.
  • Wrong, look at the Nokia logo and lack of 920 smile, its a 1020 (black)
  • who cares, they're both the same size.
  • It looks more like a black 925, look at the rounded edges
  • Yup, think I can safely say this is too big for me but for you hulksters out there, enjoy!
  • That's too what she said!
  • LOL
  • She didn't say it to me though. :(
  • I dunno guys, when I zoom on the edges of the device it looks photoshopped. I'm calling fake.
  • Yeah the bottom right looks a bit dodge
  • Sorry folks, while I see what you are talking the jaggyness is due to the photo being blown up on the site. The original has no such distortion. Update: I added a zoomed/cropped of the original and I think you'll agree that it looks less jagged?
  • The noticeable lack of any sort of glare and the placement of the arrow button seems odd. Guess I'm glad my screen is fully utilized.
  • The glare is on the left side edge where I'd expect it...
  • The arrow button seems kinda high,, even for its highest position..
  • Nope, it has a wireless charging cover on it.
  • It is a photoshop. I opened it up in PS and zoomed in. You can see a distinct block of black that was rubber stamped and in some cases on the right hand side of the bezel where it was sloppy done. For some reason the entire bottom third of the screen has been blacked out. Hate to say it, but most likely a fake somehow. 
  • I thought the placement of the "Apps list" arrow was odd, but maybe that is because there aren't enough apps pinned to fill-up the whole screen?
  • I can't wait to see what everyone who thought the 920 was too heavy have to say about this. They might take it a step further and sue Nokia because they can't lift it.
  • I guess these people are weaker than 4 years olds, my little nephews and neices young as 4 have no problems playing or sharing my L920 lol. Kids these days they don't want to play board games like Ludo, scrabble, connect4 etc they wanna play consoles, call of duty, GTA because either their older siblings play it or their folks just gave up caring.
  • It might be lighter...
  • I actually considered that possibility -- in which case, Nokia won't get sued. Everybody wins, lol.
  • Sorry.. But why would you want a phone that big! To big to hold just looks like one of those fool who have one of those big android phone....but it would appeal to some i guess...but not for me
  • You might now want it, which is perfectly fine. However, devices like the Galaxy Note indicate there is a market for devices in this range. Nokia would be a fool to make a compelling offering with Windows Phone for people that like gigantic phones. 
  • Sam maybe he has small hands ;)
  • Agree with on the idea that people want a big phone, just saying when you see people walking around talking on these type of large phones..in my opinion they just look like try hard look at me and my big phone people...but i do see the practicality of having a big screen but for me 4.5 is big enough..note until my eyes fail then i get a big screen phone lol
  • I don't think people like/want a big a phone so much as they want a big-ass screen and are willing to carry around *whatever* in order to have it.
     
     
  • Yup, I just hope Nokia doesn't start making all their high end phones 5+ inches, 4.5 is the sweet spot for me as well. I can hold and use the L920 completely one handed (even wrap around it).
  • Probably won't happen. I think the 9xx line will continue along the same size. What Nokia is doing is opening up a new line of Lumias with the 1520 numbering.
  • This. I don't really like the idea of talking into something that big, but it will save me from carrying a phone and a tablet for most of my needs.
  • Bluetooth.
  • For most of us considering one it is a matter of trade-offs. Before I got a smart phone I had to carry around my phone, plus a laptop. Now I have a L920 and I only need the laptop occasionally. The hope for this kind of device is to be able to have 1 single device, and leave everything else behind... but that depends as much upon the software set as it does the form factor. Personally I would have like to have seen a 5-5.5" screen, but if 6" is what is available and it does everything else that I want then I am not going to complain any because it keeps me from having to lug around an 8lb laptop ever again.
    But for non-business use I would agree that there is little point. For personal use just give me a nice 4" screen and I'll be happy, but if I am expected to type out the occasional email, edit word documents and send them out, and other such things, then give me something nice and big I can work with.
  • Feel free to shoot me down but I think it actually looks like a 928 with silicone case that it's sitting next to for size comparison
  • Looks like the double wide tile won't be occupied the whole widths of the screen. Awesome news.
  • Sick of the clip ons for Nokia. They need to have wireless charging built in. One of the main reasons I didn't get the 1020
  • I thought this at first, too. But then I realized it's brilliant. You keep the phone as thin/light as possible for people who don't want wireless charging. And eventually all the "super mega body armor" cases start to include the wireless charging coil as part of their design. It's a win for everyone.
  • Yes it's genius because it's quite possible other standards will gain the upper hand. If Qi doesn't stick, then you can just replace the clip on to a different standard wireless charger.
  • So then what if Qi does not win the standards war and remaining Qi products get ridiculously expensive (as if they weren't already)? When the L920 came out it was 'clear' that Qi was going to win, but now people are not so sure. It is much better to keep with external charging covers for now, then if one of the other standards takes off it is no big deal to swap out a different charging cover. But in the future when a standard is a clear and sure winner then I agree that it should be a stock feature built into the phone again. It is a paper thin copper wire, it is not adding any thickness or weight to the design.
  • Why are there no buttons in the bottom of the screen?
     
    Edit: Nevermind, missed that sentence in the article about it.
  • Column, not row.
  • It's not a spreadsheet. Rows can be in any orientation.
  • Looks like the just release Lumia 625.
  • Hey Daniel, that looks like a Lumia 1020 to me on the left, look at the left side of the black phone, you can see the thing where you would attach the thing. I dont know what its called haha but yeah, pretty sure its a 1020 on the left :)
  • Its is a 1020
  • That thing you attach to the thing is the thing you want when carrying around such things as this.
  • Ooooooooooooooooo!
    I'm gonna need bigger pants.
  • My body is ready. Specifically, my hand.
  • Now that's what she said.
  • If the HTC DNA can have wireless charging built in and still be thin, what's up Nokia.
  • I think at this stage, it's not good for Nokia to do a built-in charger when the accepted standard can change at any time. As usual, that rotten apple thing has decided to use somehting other than Qi so it has put the market in a flux. Until the standard is established, it's good that Nokia has the replaceable clip-on cover for wireless charging.
  • I'm not too fond of it. The screen seems like it needs to be wider, not longer.
  • personally the absolutely last thing I want is to have wider device than this. It can be even longer imo.
  • How much ram in the 1520? I'd like 2GBs at least
  • Most likely given display and camera.
  • Today's bing wallpaper on that 1020. #developing.
  • I have a pic of the Lincoln memorial during the MLK speech on Bing.
  • Hmm, that may be the next one for us, tomorrow-im in the UK. Are the wallpapers region specific?
  • That should have been your wallpaper yesterday. 
  • have you noticed that they didnt add that image to the lockscreen? they did the same about a month ago for gay rights, that image was never added to the lockscreen.
  • Two steps ahead of you. That wallpaper comes from yesterday in UK, Australia, Japan, and Germany. It's the current wallpaper today in New Zealand. 
  • ? The wallpaper in the pic there is my current Bing wallpaper here in the uk.
  • Had the note and note 2 good phones, but when you talk or take pics, well I felt like a rod at least but damn that is a nice looking phone! I may wait for nokias tavletw!
  • That's a Lumia 1020, not 920. The Nokia symbol on the front of the 920 is on the right side, not in the middle. You can also tell it's a 1020 because the capacitive buttons and Nokia symbol aren't reflective like they are in the 920.
  • If this comes to ATT, I have a feeling they will be quick in pushing the GDR3 update, with the downside being they'll skip the GDR2 update altogether.
  • @aaa6112 it will come to ATT first with other carriers following. And it comes with GDR3 already installed, as stated in the article.
  • Looks Like Verizon Red to me Please please please 
  • What is that on top of the 1020 it looks like an anal dildo...... Scary....
  • Wow, it's a tripod mount dude. Get your mind out of the gutter.
  • Now now, let's not judge...may have suffered a traumatic experience at one time in his or her life...
  • Made my evening xD
  • Lol!
  • iLOLed
  • Hahahahahahah :D
  • I know I just wanted to see at least 10 people's reaction...
  • the fact you know what an anal dildo looks like is what's scary.
  • Not just a dildo but an "anal dildo". Thanks for letting us know the difference.
  • Pen support seems to be missing.
  • Exciting to see, but leaks really kill most of the excitement for the formal unveiling. The 1020 event would have been phenomenal if the device hadn't leaked before hand.
  • I think i've finally found the phone that i'll purchase when my contract is up in February
  • Ooft! Gotta say I do quite like the look of that... If it has a stylus then this will probably be my next phone (I've played with a few friends' Galaxy Notes and while it's pretty big, I didn't feel uncomfortable using it...
     
    Still, there's still the Lumia 825 and 930 to turn up before Christmas so I'll wait and see what they bring. If the 930 brings a 1080p screen but in a thin 925-like form factor and a 20MP camera I'll probably go with that.
     
    I'll be buying an 8" Windows 8/RT tablet once they come out so a 6" phone too might be a bit overkill...
     
    It does look rather comically large in this photo though...
     
    As for whether the photo is genuine (Though I'm sure we'll have a device that looks like that), I'm unsure. Points in favour is that it uses the same kind of corner clips all of Nokia's current covers do (this is a negative for me aesthetically, I don't care for the look at all and it would be a shame if all the covers were like this) but points against are the Office tile being theme colour rather than Office coloured and the Win/Search/Back keys not being visible. Unless they're doing that cool thing HTC used to do where they rotate when the device is held horizontally they should really be visible...
     
    I guess we'll find out in a month!
     
    P.S. I hope Nokia bring back cyan with these next wave of devices. The lack of a cyan 920 or 1020 killed them for me.
  • Yes, the lack of cyan was abit annoying especially when they said it would be an AT&T exclusive colour I was hoping they would have the cyan colour for international release. But was disappointed so settled for the L920 in white since I needed to upgrade from my omnia pro B7610 lol.
    I thought I was going blind at first when I saw the back/win/seach keys but yeah they are no visible and there are no place holders which is odd. I don't see Nokia adding a setting where you could turn them off lol.
  • Big, just big. If you want a big screen get a tablet. They are portable. Where does it stop. When does it become a tablet. It's only a inch smaller than 7" tablet. Just a gimmick. Make it inch bigger call it a tablet with Windows 8.
  • Is that a S4/iPad like cover?
  • Looks more like an S4/925 charching cover to me.
  • i'm raising the BS flag.  look where the apps arrow is on the 1520, there is like a 3rd screen space left at the bottom.  That is either photochop or something is screwed up with the resolution on that thing.
  • Uhhh... the more stuff you pin to the start screen the further down the arrow moves.
     
    So... yeah... :-/
  • Don't think intellar has noticed it does move down  to the bottom / sticks to last row of tiles :P.. But the lack windows logo, back key and search key are eyebrow raising to the say the least. But on the flipside its a prototype so things can change.
  • Gigantor!
  • Isn't this the same blue phone that was posted here as a blurrycam shot couple of months ago? It also had the extra column of tiles
  • Good call.
  • That was never verified and it's blurry as hell http://www.wpcentral.com/nokia-phablet-lumia-1030-reportedly-revealed-blurry-photo
  • Eh to small. Let me know when an 8 inch Lumia comes out!
  • This looks awesome
  • Nokia is doing a great job. This and the 1020 are exactly the kind of attention-getting devices WP8 needs right now. The 1020 and 1520 will be aspirational devices for many people who can't afford them ... but it may get them interested in the platform and they will purchase one of the less expensive WP8 devices.
  • I love how its big enough to run Windows RT :D 
  • Wonder if this will fit in my nice new CR-200 car cradle/charger...
  • OMG...I'm loving it. Make it high-end and I'm in.
  • The end is high
  • Note the apparent accessory cover that likely combines wireless charging and a screen protective cover!
  • when do small screens become fashionable again?  I want a 2.5" WVGA phone.
  • I am not a fan of big screens either but no premium device seems to have a small screen anymore. I want a premium device with a screen no more than 4 inches. Basically Lumia 920/925 internals in a Lumia 620 chassis! Willing to pay Lumia 920/925 money for it
     
  • Wish granted. Here is latest Nokia phone launched today. Nokia 515 premium build
     
    http://www.nokia.com/global/products/phone/515
  • I didn't read the comments, so this could already have been said.
     
    1. No buttons shown or at lesat they aren't lit up.
    2. Why is the home screen scrolled up so far? The little right-arrow should be in the lowe-right corner with tiles just above it if they have truly scrolled to the bottom of the screen. Ehh.. maybe the build of WP it was running just didn't have fit & polish ready yet.
  • I hope it doesn't have software buttons.... my other fear is that is where they have put the notification center, and as you pull the start screen up more your notifications would appear there. I sure hope not.
  • I would prefer physical buttons.  I'm always hitting the search button on my 920 with the ball of my right thumb.  It's really annoying.  Also, any time I pass my phone to somebody to see a picture or whatever they inevitably grab the phone and hit one of the three buttons.  They always hand it back to me and say something like "Uh, oh.  I think I messed it up."
     
    I don't like the iPhone, or even Apple for that matter.  But I do really like the feel of that Home button.  Or whatever they call it
  • All Lumia button lights turn off at a certain time, so that means little The arrow is because nothing is pinned to the Start screen, totally normal. The arrow is not by default bottom of the display
  • But the buttons on my 920 have a metallic coating making them highly reflective so visible even if off....or was this special to the 920 only?
  • True and interesting point. Hard to say at this point with one picture.
  • I exactly thought the same thing but now that I also have the 925, I can tell you it's not. However low & medium end Lumias look a bit different there, more cool white light but less noticeable within limited angles of vision. (e.g 520 & 720)
  • I've never notied my 928's button illumination turn off if the screen is still on, but I can't say that I've paid that much attention to it. Good call on #2, it's been so long since I've seen a home screen with no pins I forgot all about that.
  • AT&T exclusive.
  • i want that phablet soo badly!!
     
  • I hope i can have 3 columns on my 920 soon, too!
  • I am actually surprised. It looks very nice.
  • What is that thing written at the bottom of the phone???
  • proto.nokia.com
  • This will be great for baking cookies! (Nothing else to say as I abhor the simple "phablet" idea)
  • Great - I love cookies. Now I can bake them and eat them too.
  • I hope they don't just stick stock Windows Phone 8 on this, that would be a disaster. I'm expecting some stuff dedicated for the large screen like redesigned native apps. A stylus wouldn't hurt either.
  • Eh? What do you mean "stock Windows Phone 8". WTF -- this isn't Android mate! lol
  • Stick touchwizz on this bad boy, i wants me some super-lag :P
  • You don't know what a stock build of an OS is? It's a build that comes straight from the developer with nothing extra in it. The HTC, Nokia, Samsung stuff you see on phones is stuff added AFTER they get the OS from Microsoft. So if Nokia is building a phablet they need to redesign Windows Phone to adapt to the large screen. Add stuff like a split screen keyboard. Just go use a Galaxy Note and you'll know what I mean.
  • Of course I do (I was being sarcastic), and like I said mate, this isn't Android -- WP8 is about stuff baked in, and not the shite you want.
  • I'd buy it, 6in is legit just wish it could run the RT version, that'd be legit
  • Wrong use of legit
  • Looks cool and a little disproportionate
  • I really hope this is not true. Looks like a big Lumia 720. I have a black Lumia 920 and think the design is nice but I really want Nokia to make a new design for the phablet, an aluminum body would be really nice...
  • Those that ask if it will have a pen I can tell you that it won't, but maybe you will have a chance to buy one separately.
  • I'm as giddy as a school girl over this!
  • What's with the butt plug? Hahahaha
  • AT&T Again, seams to me that if you want a WP that is new you have to be on one carrier. or you get the 6 mo old tech on other carriers in 2014. I love WP but not enough to mover to AT&T I bought the L925 great device yes but it's still 6 old mo tech. I really don't think the exclusive thing is that good for the OS. but then Nokia is the only real player in WP.
  • It will be great if it can dual boot between wp8 and windows rt.....
  • Oh wow.! I LOVE IT.! This would be my next phone.! Glad to be on WP ;)
  • I wasn't that excited for this until now.
  • I want.
  • So who's gonna hold that thing up to their ear and talk on it?
  • LOL
    That's how I feel about everything bigger than my 822.
    I know this is the wrong place to say anything good about the iPhone, but I really like how small it is.
    I guess I'm old school, but I really don't subscribe to these big phones.
  • Bluetooth. Repeat after me...bluuuuuuuetooooooooth. Ohmmmmmmmm. Again... Bllllluuuuuuu......
  • Actually looks pretty nice for a phablet, I think I'll stick with smaller screens though.
    :)
  • I really have no interest in having a phablet at the moment. My 925 satisfies me enough for now. My only concern is the Nokia tablet or the new and improved Surface Pro
  • This will likely be my next phone.  Though I'm a little bit concerned at the size.  I've been waiting for a phablet with a 1020 camera and if the rumored specs are right, the camera will certainly be good enough for me.  I was really hoping for a 5.5 or so size.  6 might be pushing it.  I've been holding my nexus 7 and seeing if I could hold that as a phone and I guess I can so the 6 inch device with a smaller bezel should be ok, but I'm still a bit hesitant with that.  As long as they don't try to pull that 299 on contract crap with this one, I'll likely be a day one purchaser and keep my 920 as my backup.

  • Surely they will produce something in the 5" range.
  • Let's hope so , i'm very excited about this device but i hope Nokia produces a Lumia with 5.5" screen and the exact same specs as this phone, quadcore fullhd etc, and i hope they will built in wireless charging, i hate covers so much ....
  • No built-in wireless charging for now till the industry can settle on one standard. The fruit company is going to use something other than Qi so we might end up with something else as the accepted standard.
  • Please oh please have wireless charging. Don't leave it out Nokia. This is my next phone
  • +1520!!!
  • The situation with wireless charging standard is in a flux for now so it's not wise for Nokia to use built-in wireless charging when it could go Qi or some other standard. At this point, the swappable clip on is the wisest thing Nokia can do.
  • Today I got the wireless charging cover for the Nokia Lumia 925, if the rumors are true and the 1520 is spotting a wireless charging cover too I just hope one thing: that the Nokia designers fix the terrible error of blocking the phone speakers. For God's sake. I will be very hard on my review of the accessory if so...
  • It's not blocked...not really. Look closely and you'll see a thin channel to allow the sound to come out. 
  • I must differ on this one pal. If I learnt something from my mechanical design courses and my car system hobby was not to play with sound and thin spaces. A speaker that finds a very close interference make bounces over itself, making the sound to lower at least 40%, but the worst is the mechanical damage suffered by the speaker membrane that drop its lifespan incredibly. Not to mention how the equalization suffers.
  • Whether it is effective or not, I'm not committing to, I'm just saying Nokia took it into account and adjusted the design to allow the sound to channel out. 
  • Ok, then you are right but I also must say that it was poorly designed in that matter. Any regular decent sound engineer will tell you that at least tiny wholes (that won't mitigate the whole cover solid structure) would solve a lot of the forthcoming problems with the extensive use of the speakers. The tried to fix this by adding those 2 leveling dots around the speaker to create that channel you mentioned but that actually fix nothing but gives an incorrect security that the device is working at its best when it's not. That's all.
  • Then just bore tiny holes through it then - problem solved.
  • Oooooh!!! Who loves me and wants to get me one? ;) that's pretty awesome
  • Yep, can't wait! This is my next phone!!
  • The photo look like fake because the arrow that we use to goto app list should be placed at right bottom and in the photo it is little above from the normal place like it was photoshop...
  • That's not actually true. The button is relative to the amount of tiles on the display.
  • I can't wait to get my hands on that phone!
  • Really loving my Lumia 1020, but the phablet is my Kryptonite. I ... Must ... Resist!!
  • My next phone? Hmmm..
  • Question, will there be an option to make the double wide tile a triple wide tile or able to cover the whole width of the screen as it currently does? I honestly can't stand the medium sized tiles and only use double wide and small. I love double wide covering the screen for tiles that live update such as Wpcentral's tile. Would be great to be able to get even more info on the tile with the larger screen and increased resolution.
  • Love it!!!
  • Give it to me.. OMG I have been waiting for this to come out..
  • But is that GDR3?!
  • Most likely.
  • If it's going to have 1080p and quad-core cpu, and the rumors are all saying it's going to have those, then it can't be anything other than GDR3. So yes, GDR3 it will be.
  • OH BOY!!!
  • The way the screen cover seemms to fold sugest a landscape oriented kickstand... will we gwt a landscape Start Screen with it?  Hmmm...
  • I'm thinking this is the 825 phablet not the 1520. Do you have any reason to believe that it is the 1520 over the 825, Daniel? It looks identical to the 820 only bigger to me and it looks pretty flat (no camera bump), although the case might be flush with the hump I guess.
  • Will it come with a pen?? Not that its a big deal but it would be cool
  • No, no stylus.
  • Well, if that is indeed true then my decision is an easy one... no stylus, no purchase
  • The really interesting thing is, it looks like it doesn't have the typical three WP buttons on the bottom.
  • Now that we have the phablet category covered can we get a 4.0" lumia flagship with a 41 mp sensor. I'd get it in a heartbeat. K thanks.
  • It looks so slim for a big phone also !! :)
  • If this has a stylus, with a place to store the stylus, and some stylus specific functions. This will be my next phone. If no stylus, then the next iteration of the 1020 will be it.
  • Looking at the folds in the cover, I bet the cover can be folded back to act as a stand for the 1520 (like the iPad)
  • Excellent observation, would be neat if it was attached via magnets, and could turn the screen on an off as well
  • even better
  • looks like a big 820 with an ipad-like cover.  I prefer the aluminum shell we've been seeing.  Especially in that concept pic with that gunmetal grey. 
  • Verizon exclusive plus worldwide release like the 925.
  • Ok guys you ready to have your minds blownnn!!!!!????? It is going to dual boot windows RT /WP8!!!!!
  • Notice nobody responded to this... Troll.
  • That's awesome. If that's real i am sold already.
  • Expandable memory please. Oh what do I care. It'll be exclusive to fAilT&T for a year anyway.
  • Does anybody else think 6 inches is a little too big? Then again I'm still stoked.
  • Nope
  • Call me skeptical, but I just don't think 6" is a good size.. 5.5" sure, but not 6 :(
  • I am a little skeptical. I am afraid it might suffer the 'hybrid' curse: the worst of both worlds. Too big to be comfortable as a phone, too small to be appealing as a tablet. Nonetheless, I am intrigued. I will definitely consider it once I get my hands on one.
  • I want the 1920 ❕❕❕✔✔;)
  • O-P-U-L-E-N-C-E
  • Anyone wana buy a yellow 1020 with black charging plate and camera grip?!?!?! Lol
  • Ridiculous big. You failed this time Nokia. 5.5" would have made this phone a great addition to Lumia line though.
  • Oh snap! I've waited for so long to get a 5+ inch Windows Phone. Although it'll be exclusive to AT&T... Guarantee it
  • Nice.
  • Yes plz
  • Saving my pennies for the Verizon release date...
  • Fake. Note the blocky-ness at the bottom of the tablet... Photoshopped poorly. Oh well. I'm sure there's one coming out. But that ain't it. Isn't there someone out there who can check the pixilation to verify?
  • Wow, My 620....you really got a BIG brother out there. Say , Hi!
  • I want this phone!
  • Will the 20MP camera use the oversampling technology?
  • Missed opportunity not taking the pic with 1020.
     
    ENHANCE!!!
  • Coming from a HTC trophy, to 8x then to Droid DNA, I can not wait for this phone. I love my droid but more often then not I find myself using my wife's 822. They say that wp downside is lack of apps, but the truth is wp has quality apps versus quantity. Quad core and 1080 large screen is all I was waiting for to finally go back.
  • I would love to have that thing! If its ever released for Verizon I'm getting one. Not that I actually need a phone that big. Lol.
  • I'm loving WP+Nokia but...it seems they're stuck in a design loop.
  • What unlike apple and Samsung? Nokia has the most variety and if you cry loud enough they will make it different (925)
  • Thank God, they didn't place micro USB on top. It would have spoiled the design. The device is amazing. Although its difficult to make out how thin bazel is. But hope the overall size isn't bigger than Note 2
  • Update it to 8 cores cpu + 8 cores GPU total of 16 cores advanced enough for the battery to last 12 hours in use 1 week idle on 1080p!!!
    that will be awesome.
  • forgot to say add 4 GB RAM
  • Looks fake....why aren't there tiles all the way to the bottom...and the arrow on the bottom right isn't all the way to the bottom
     
  • Something is dodgy about this pic for one the arrow for app menu is far too high and that light reflection should be partially on red phone too, I'm tipping a PhotoShop scam
  • This will definitely be my 920 replacement as soon as it is available. Combined with the Sirius, Perfect.
    Cant wait for the official announcement! 
    Go Nokia !
  • Hulk going to be happy to join windows phone camp XD
    awesome phone
  • Where are those standard 3 buttons? They gone missing.
  • I'd like one if a variant comes to T-Mobile!!!
  • SOLD!
  • Not metal body? Disappointing.
  • proto.nokia.com guess what.. Its a prototype site! U guys should take a look at that webpage
  • Its funny how they still use a charging plate on a phone that size. Still I'm going to get one!!
  • Anyone know when/if it will be released in Europe?
  • Why is the arrow so far from the bottom of the screen?
  • What is the release date for Germany?
  • No Nokia, NO!
    Those soft edges and the poor way the screen seem to match up with the polycarbonate makes it look like a budget phone! Either this is the 825, or they completely failed at the design department.
    I was so excited for this phone when I first hear of it, now all excitement has been taken away. You can't make a flagship look like some cheap plastic crap with poorly matching edges and toy-like soft corners, Nokia.
  • Accidental double-click. Please ignore.
  • Will this support wp7
  • I want this phone. It would make it so much easier to edit documents on the go. I won't lie, I use my phone for work a bit and have to edit/access many different documents and a PDF would look good on this. I still like my 925 so I may have to buy this separate and swap SIM cards when I need some MEGA help... jejeje
  • Hope Nokia makes a phone with 5 inch display... That's my sweet spot.
  • Where is my stylus & 3000mah battery? 
  • If my focus didnt just die, i totally would have held out for this beast!!!! ill be purchasing a 1020 in the meantime. i cant deal with this 3 year old android phone im using in the interim...im in hell without my WP!!!
  • The tiles seem rather small, though at least you can fit more apps on the screen. I wonder if there may be issues with mistakingly opening an app because the tile is too small, such as using a tablet with a Windows UI (not 8), a pain to be very precise on where you tap.
  • Give me a microsd slot, and I'm sold
  • Because of its size it probably will not have wireless charging, although I sincerely hope I'm wrong.
  • "... dig deeper and see what we can find." That's what she said..... = P
  • This better have orientation lock! There's nothing worse than using my 920 while laying down only to have it swing landscape every time I move my hand.
    Seriously apple and android have had it for years. Heck even windows 8 supports it. We don't need a massive software release to support orientation lock.
  • One, please!
  • I would just like to state that im still rocking a 900 because everytime im ready to upgrade there's a new lumia I was set on this 1020 now must wait and see what this 1520 turns out to be.
  • Wow the phone looks awesome, Nokia is doing great.
    http://www.techgreet.com/nokia-lumia-1520-rumors/
  • Where are the three basic buttons , the home button , the back button and the Bing search button ???
  • Wow that thing is sick!!
  • Why there is no light at the home button?
  • This will be my next work pha... thing.... this and a smart watch and I will find myself in WP heaven.... just imagine my sharepoint form on that thing.... darn, I am starting to drool....
