Nokia Lumia 1520 mini rumored; device to feature 4.3 inch screen, 14MP PureView camera
A published report out of China indicates that a "mini" version of the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet is on the way. The device will reportedly be named the Nokia Lumia 1520 V and will feature a 4.3 inch screen, down sharply from the 6 inch glass found on the full-sized version of the phone. However, the screen on the "V" will keep the same 1080 x 1920 resolution employed on the larger model. That could result in one of the highest pixel density figures on a smartphone.

The rest of the specs include 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. A 14MP PureView camera is on back and a 3000mAh battery powers the whole shebang. The phone is expected to be unveiled after Windows Phone 8.1 is released in April. There is also some thought that this is an international version of the unannounced Nokia Lumia 929 aka the Nokia Icon. However, that phone is expected to launch at Verizon with a 5 inch display.

Take this report with the proverbial grain of salt until we get some official word from Nokia. Check out the slideshow for a couple of glimpses of what is allegedly the Nokia Lumia 1520V.

4.3" 1080p = 512 ppi. That's insane.

I think they should stay at 1280 x 720. More than enough...

Maybe it saves battery but if the difference is marginal then by all means, the more the better.

There is difference between 1080p and 4k. 4k is more sharper and picture look more clear And have more ppi. So we can think 1080p in 5inch and 4k in 4.3inch.

Doubt that's going to happen... 720p is more likely.

I think the same. but 720 also good

23. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2105; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)


I completely agree. Not gonna happen. Those are the kind of rumors that never pan out. If this device does exist, it will be 720 & the battery will not be anywhere near 3000mAh.

29. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3882; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)


I agree, but speculating is fun. 1080p on a display less than 5" is pretty much useless, but it would still be cool.

Oh yeah it is powerful and may beat any mini device...
Though it won't be international version of lumia 929....and it won't have 3 rows as it is possible for 5+inch phone

If that was true, Nokia would be sitting on top of the smartphone world. They're not even in the top 10.

q2 2013- 7.xm lumia
q3 2013- 8.xm lumia

Actually, I can deny it. At the rate they're going, they're still not going to be in the top 10 in a year. I do love their industrial design--some of the most solidly built phones around. Besides that, I remain unimpressed.

Don't tell me what it's about. I know sales don't mean everything, but I hate to break it to you. Nokia isn't the most innovative company out there. That's not to say they aren't great. I believe they are, but they'll never see any serious market penetration only making smart devices on an OS that has 4% worldwide market share. What good is your innovation if most people will never have the opportunity to make use of it?

Voting for 720p. But casual end user will buy it becuase say FULL HD is better then HD, even he will never notice the deifference or can use the higher density. But battery suffers. That is why i would like the 720p. Actualy, it will be mix of the best ergonomy of 4.3" and power!

With those specs, this would be gladly welcomed for those who feel phone sizes are getting too large but still want top of the line everything! Probably will be another ATT exclusive so its a no go for me!

Same here. If it has a 720p with 4.3" screen. It will still have a very sharp screen and a killer battery life with 3000mah.

the image is fake...as far as i remember Joe from Microsoft said that 6 tile space wont come to just any phone with a 1080p screen....it would have to do with the size of the screen of the phone...and 4.3 definitely doesn't fit that description

@41 try metrotube for YouTube. Secondly if the number of devices is growing, hopefully the number of users will grwand there for the. Number of apps. Though the situation with apps is a mindset not the truth

This case size is a better fit for the Human hand to hold. Folks now that Windows smart phones can use all the High tech gear that is available for smart phones to use. Microsoft can turn it's Attention to giving Windows smart phones the software Features that Android and Apple Iphones have that Windows smart phones now do not have. If you own a Windows 8 smart phone rejoice it's going to be upgraded to the more
Powerful Windows Phone 8.1 OS and will have new functions added to Windows smart phones.

If it comes to pass NICE. I hope that all carriers in the US get it. So far it seems that AT&T has a tight lipped deal with Nokia like there 5yr Apple deal. They get everything 1st with a 6mth or 1yr jump LOL.
