When the Nokia Lumia 1520 launches it will be the largest Windows Phone device ever. It will be so big that it will sit comfortable in the category of smartphones known as “phablets”. Devices that are much larger than your average smartphone, but smaller than a mini tablet. It will go head to head with the very successful Samsung Galaxy Note devices running Android. These are brave new waters for the Windows Phone platform. And it looks like you might only 15 days away from holding it in your hands.
It’s hard to challenge the accuracy of leaks from @evleaks on Twitter. So when he says the Nokia Lumia 1520 launches on the 26th of September we tend to believe him. Curiously, that’s the same day that Nokia has an event planned for New York City.
What’s the Lumia 1520 all about? The device will have a 6-inch display with a 1080p display. It will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor from Qualcomm. Additionally it will have 32GB of storage with an SD slot for microSD cards. Pictures will come from a 20MP sensor that captures 5MP and 16MP images simultaneously. This will all have GDR3 and Bittersweet shimmer as the OS powering it. Be sure to check out some of the leaked screenshots of Bittersweet shimmer.
