It's red, large and in charge; press render of Nokia Lumia 1520 tweeted
A tweet from evleaks on Friday morning revealed the soon to be introduced Nokia Lumia 1520 done up in red. The Windows Phone powered handset is expected to be introduced on October 22nd in Abu Dhabi. The first model to contain the GDR3 update will also be the largest-screened phone using the platform.

We expect to see the Nokia Lumia 1520 in red, black, yellow and white sporting a 6 inch 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution, driven by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. 32GB of native storage is on board and a 20MP PureView snapper will be on back. Throw in a nice sized 3400mAh battery and you have a drool producing unit that could give some of those Android flavored phablets a run for their money.

Speaking of the green stuff, the Nokia Lumia 1520 could be priced off-contract in the neighborhood of $700+. Yes, we know that this is a rather exclusive neighborhood indeed.

this is the first best powerful and features pack device from Nokia. looks compact and less bezel and slimmer. Perfect device. IF this device have android we know it can go in selling like hot cake category.

Nokia can do instantly but i don't know why ms can't do instantly.

Smaller bezels, thinner phone, front is 920 and back is 925, 20 MP camera, highest possible specs (SD800, 1080p display, etc..), 32 GB internal memory + Micro SD card and most importantly very large battery.

They put all the good things from their previous flagships and low end phones in this phone.

Good job Nokia.

Have you actually tried to use the WP OS for a daily driver?
Why is it lousy cr*p?

Bought the Lumia 920, used it for some time and sold it to get the Nexus 4, I'm very satisfied with my choice, and btw, I lost lot's of money in the exchange process because nobody wants Nokia, neither wp.
Now the Lumia was a good phone, but the lack of applications plus the stupidity if whatsapp for wp made it unbearable for me.

What???? hahaha.... no one need Nokia? You may just started using phone so you know nothing about phone. Question, why does Microsoft need to buy Nokia devices and services if no one need it?

to promote their wp os using the good nokia hardware, that's why.
I said nobody wants Nokia, not "nobody needs Nokia".
Try to understand what you read before you comment because that would be a smart thing to do.

Each OS offers users different options. Personally, I really don't care if WP is smoother, the lack of ability of removing the tiles and customizing the phone the way I want to kills it for me. And btw, my N4 is plenty smooth enough.

That's my observation and choice. Others can agree and disagree as they want, choice is good.

Wait what? You can have an empty scrwwn if you choose I thought. You can pin and unpin any app and remove any app. That is what was explained to me.

What's left if you delete the tiles and what else can you replace the tiles with? That's the problem, it all revolves around tiles. If you love tiles, great, but some of us don't.

64. Bernoulli (Posts: 1437; Member since: 01 Sep 2012)


Eh you actually can remove tiles, unlike android you don't even have to root the phone to remove and permanently delete carrier bloatware, but you are right, while androids may lag and offer pathetic cameras it's all about choice for the consumer

Pocketnow are the most impartial site and they always reflect WP in a positive manner. The tech sites you mention that hate WP are more than likely The Verge, BGR, Gottabemobile, CNet and Gizmodo, the first two being quite Anti-MS and Anti-Nokia but very Pro-Apple. Especially gottabemobile, every column is almost dedicated to IOS so got sick of that.

This looks interesting. I havent liked windows yet, but I might take a look and see if it can draw me away from the One Max. Either way both will be amazing phablets.

As much as I like how big it is, I've got too much invested in apps' in the Play Store; can't give up tTorrent Pro, Groove IP, PDA.net/FoxFi, MDScan, etc. The many games I've paid 99¢ for I can do without. But, not giving freebies like tubeMate, Showbox or MultiWindows - can't live without MultiWindows.

Size is nice, though.

This is not a 6" device mark my words. And if it would be i would be very wrong but when i saw the leaked size you can't put a 6" screen inside it, otherwize you would have almost no bezels.

Probably a great device, but until they put a File Manager and ability to sync outlook and not have to sign into a microsoft account, I guess im sticking with my oldschool stuff.
Still kinda hoping that they kill Windows Phone and replace it with RT, but thats just my personal taste, I like having a computer in my hand.

congrats... thin bezels at last...

next,

1. make the device thinner and lighter...
2. use a faster cpu/gpu..
3. use a nice audio dac...
4. add more apps...
5. bring back file explorer...
6. switch for desktop mode (you know, just like the start button in wm days?)

The nokia OS does eveything other OS's do. It's a smart phone. You can get on the Web you can make calls. How does it suck? Its all personal preference. I mean come on you guys are talking sh@t to eachother on a cell phone tech site! I bet your all really tough!
