Since today there’s less news about the Microsoft-Nokia acquisition floating around, we can return to business as usual: writing about Windows Phones. Specifically, the Nokia Lumia 1520 aka the rumored 6-inch device that is expected to launch in November.
There have been two high profile leaks of this device lately, including a real photo of the 1520 and a screenshot from the 1080P display revealed by @evleaks.
One of our Windows Phone Central Forum members, Rohan Vg, threw his modest PhotoShop skills at the problem and combined those two images into one (seen above). It gives us a better look at what the finalized device may look like.
Revealed: Lumia 1020 (L) and the Lumia 1520 (R)
We’re not 100% sure of the scaling next to the Lumia 920, but the rest of it looks as expected--a giant Lumia Windows Phone. The 1520 is supposed to sport a 6-inch 1080P display, quad-core processor, 20 MP rear camera and Windows Phone 8 GDR3. The device is headed to AT&T, according to the Verge, though our sources expect it to be a limited-exclusive as the device will also head to Verizon soon thereafter. Details remain murky at this time.
Speaking of things being unclear, the fate of the September announcement may be in question now with Microsoft’s purchase of Nokia potentially altering plans. Stay tuned.
