Nokia Bandit phablet to be called Nokia Lumia 1520
After getting first solid rumors on Nokia’s upcoming 10.1-inch tablet, the Nokia Sirius, today information surfaces about Nokia’s 6-inch phablet, the Nokia Bandit. The Nokia Bandit will actually be called the Nokia Lumia 1520, according to @evleaks.

And that’s about all the new information. We cannot derive much from that number - Nokia’s current flagship is the Nokia Lumia 1020 and all major releases of the company this year end with ‘20’ - the Lumia 520 and Lumia 720. Nokia is also releasing upgraded devices derived from an existing product under the ‘25’ suffix. Such are the Nokia Lumia 925 which is an evolution of the Lumia 920, and such seems to be the Nokia Lumia 625, a supersized version of the Lumia 620.

Clearly, with the Nokia Lumia 1520, the Bandit, we are talking about a device that will kick off a brand new category, and it will be Nokia’s first phablet, a device larger than a phone and smaller than a tablet. The Lumia 1520 is expected to feature a 6-inch 1080p display and run on Windows Phone 8.

I think it is to differentiate the phablets from normal phones. Its a good decision in my opinion.

900 => Flagship with normal size.
1000 => EOS flagship.
1500 => Phablet.

By releasing 3 different flagship products they will be in the limelight throughout the year.

I'd prefer the phablet be closer to the others in number, e.g. Lumia 1100-series, although there were some 1100s previously that were budget models, as I recall. That way the phablet could be Lumia 1100, 7-8" RT tablets 1200, 10"+ RT tablets 1300, 7-8" Win8 tablets 1400, and 10"+ Windows 8 Pro tablets 1500. Not sure if Lumia should be applied to the actual tablets though, maybe another name or continue the Booklet name

I don't like this trend where phones are getting bigger and bigger. :(
I prefer a 720p, 3.7-4.0 inch display. That should be more than enough for me.

Honestly speaking, my hands are not big enough. Agree. But I don't understand how that made me sound boring. Even I love all the Lumia high-ends. Its just this 6 inch phone that made me worry if it was a little too big. (Just my personal feeling again!)

Some might possibly be in agreement with you about larger smartphones being less appealing. However, Samsung has proven there is a definite market for Phablets, and Nokia will be wise to try and capture some of that for themselves. This machine sounds great to me, and I can hardly wait for it to hit the streets...

Yeah. This sound fair. But I don't want to compromise on having a smaller processor or RAM, though. Hope they'll strike a perfect balance in size & specs for guys like me. :)

720p upgraded Lumia 620 would be perfect, but I think there is also a high demand for phablets.

12. UdhaiyaPrasanth (Posts: 76; Member since: 05 Sep 2012)


Yeah. But do they have to have that 6 inch screen? 5-5.5" is not good for a phablet? (seriously this is not to offend any phablet lovers here. Just asking!)

I have the LG G pro. 5'5 screen isnt enough,,. Windows 8 will look beautiful on a 6" screen..

iboy? You serious? I've never used an apple product in my whole life. Personally, I don't have anything against samsung or apple. But I love Nokia for some reason. Maybe its because I'm from India and I grew along having Nokia phones. So, that comment up there shows the concern I have for my favorite OEM and my own personal opinion about large screens. I was in no way dissing Nokia or any other company here. Just learn to show some respect.

Good thing there's the 520, 620, and 720 then.

If 1520 = flagship, then maybe 1420, 1320, & 1220 will be mini versions of 1520. All I'm wishing for is, they shouldn't downgrade the specs too much (like Sony Honami).

Nokia is clearly stepping it up in all the right directions: this phablet sounds awesome, and will undoubtably have Nokia's amazing Pureview camera technology, in addition to a powerful CPU and GPU, as well as a 1080P display to boot...

Samsung and Apple had better move over - Nokia is back!!!

"Samsung and Apple had better move over..."

Really? is that the best you could do? Do you think these companies are your local small companies? Just look at their profits before you start commenting.
