Smartphone insiders @evleaks tweeted a simple, but straight-forward message about the Nokia 6-inch Windows Phone 8 device codenamed "Bandit," denoting that it will officially be called the Nokia Lumia 1520. @evleaks has a longtime track record of being correct with the information they release, so we think the chances are pretty good that we'll be hearing the name Lumia 1520 soon.
Hints of a Nokia 6-inch phablet, a phone/tablet hybrid, first cropped up in a leaked photo back in July, and was discovered last week to be in testing at AT&T under the codename "Bandit."
What we have heard so far is that the Lumia 1520 will have a 6-inch screen with 1080p resolution, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and at least a 20 mega-pixel rear camera. The Bandit will resemble the Lumia 925, with a slight humped back to make room for the high-end camera components. And of course, it will be running Windows Phone 8 with GDR3.
Nokia is clearly trying to expand their reach to larger devices with the Lumia 1520, and even more so with the recently outed Windows RT-powered "Sirius" tablet. The "Sirius" looks like it will debut at an event Windows Phone Central first told you about, set for September 26-27 in New York City.
With two days dedicated to the event, perhaps we'll even see the Lumia 1520.
