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.

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.
