Nokia's first phablet effort, the Lumia 1520, turned out to be a 6" slab, stuffed to the gills with top-shelf smartphone tech like a 20 MP PureView camera, 4 HAAC mics, and the groundbreaking Assertive Display technology, and now we have its official pricing from Europe...

You are drunk.. you can't compare this beast to the N series. If that's the case we should compare it to the note series too

Beast? Just coz it has 6-inch screen? 1520 has almost same hardware components as Nexus (5 or whatever it's called). It will have a better camera sensor and mics. Does that make it double the price? Nope. Nokia is just ripping you off like Apple.

You forget bigger screen and battery. . But I'm sure it helped your case to leave that out. Take your Goggles off.

Good lord - that's almost a grand (USD) for this phone. I don't care how awesome a phone is; theres absolutely no justification paying that much.

That's out of contract, buddy. Phone cost to be produced, and profits are what keep a company alive. $749 isn't that bad for a phone. Go look on eBay as to what people are asking for certain devices. There 'are' justifications for paying that much. If you can afford to pay and want it, then one should pay. If not, look else where, simple as that.

Don't call me buddy. I'm not your friend.
$749 for a phone isn't that bad? Really? I can't think of any more expensive.

I would never buy an iPhone - or any phone for that matter - at full retail. To each their own, but spending 600+ on a phone isn't for me. that's all I was trying to say.

Note 3 anyone?

I pay out of contract prices to avoid being on contract. It's a BIG money saver in the long run. Look it up, 'buddy.'

still i will wait for a lumia with following specs
5 inch screen
41 mp camera(lumia 1020)
full hd screen
& the same battery here.
May be the 1020 successor

i'm waiting too.
Lumia 1520 is a beast.
Lumia 1520 with 41 MP Pureview is a monster.

Even at 90fps the optical image stabilization in the 1020 trumps sammys plastic

And here's where I'm curious. Judging from the earlier leak of 7 codenames I've made a list:
Orion = Asha 500
Pegasus = Asha 502
Lanai = Asha 503
Shorty = Lumia 525? (Earlier Shorty was a speakerphone)
Bandit = Lumia 1520
Sirius = Lumia 2520
Rivendell = ???
I wan't to know what that leaked unknown codename is for. Is it for the rumoured second smaller phablet with a 41 MP camera? Is it the full-aluminium chassis some regard as a fake? Is it the Lumia 929?
Come on Nokia, give us a clue!

Maybe the 929 going Verizon. 5" and almost same as the bandit. Just cross your fingers.

Android phone? maybe but there is only a small chance.
29. Beijendorf (Posts: 278; Member since: 27 Aug 2013)
My best guess for Rivendell is the first Nokia with a light-field camera (Pelican Imaging, PiCam) with their 300 megapixel sensors. Possibly even higher megapixels, since the 300 megapixel version is almost a year old when Rivendell is due for release.
