Nokia Lumia 1520 - Two more photos of the 6-inch device leak from China

It’s an early Sunday morning but leaks are leaks and they know no boundaries. Tonight (or this morning), two more photos of the Lumia 1520, Nokia’s 6-inch phablet device due in November, have come forward from China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center—basically their FCC.

The photos themselves don’t reveal too much more on an initial pass, just what we already know: the world is about to gain a really big Lumia Windows Phone. The specs for the 1520 should bump Windows Phone into the forefront of large screened devices, especially with its 1080P display, Snapdragon 800 CPU, 32GB of storage (and microSD). We recently revealed that the device will also feature an industry leading 3400 mAh battery to power the device for an extended period.

Combined with its rear 20 MP camera (dual shot 16 MP + 5 MP, akin to the Lumia 1020), the Nokia Lumia 1520 is expected to go on sale for AT&T in early November with a later release for Verizon. Since China is evidently testing the device as well, it’s safe to assume that this massive Windows Phone will launch worldwide in the near future.

The Lumia 1520 along with Nokia’s tablet were expected to be revealed later this month in New York City, but Windows Phone Central has heard this event was cancelled and now @evleaks suggests an October 22nd date. It would make sense for Nokia to announce the Lumia 1520 in late October with a two week lead before an actual release. That is how the Lumia 1020 and Lumia 925 were recently handled too.
