Qualcomm tweets Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet will sport Snapdragon 800

Qualcomm itself confirmed its Snapdragon 800 is what will be powering the Lumia 1520 phablet, responding to a tweet, then quickly retracted the statement, realizing some non-disclosure agreements are still in place before the official unveiling, but the cat is out of the bag...

The Note 4 will eat its lunch, and the lunches of five of your friends, Lamia Lovers! ;-)

Well, as much as I like that Nokia is finally entering the phablet space, there is not denying that the Note 3 easily beats the Lumia in terms of features. WP simply doesn't have anything (that we're aware of yet) to compete with what the Note can do.
We all know WP is the cause of that, not Nokia. I can only hope that at the very least the Office apps have been redone to include more features given all the new screen real estate.
Of course, maybe, just maybe this device is for those who simply want a gigantic phone without all the extra "stuff" that others have to offer. It would be a ridiculous thing to do, but maybe they have to pitch it that way because of the limitations of WP right now.

What features is WP lacking that you speak of❓ What extra stuff do the others have, and what limitations does WP have❓... Are you listening to the comments being made by other's about old issues that WP7x had,, or have you personally used WP inside, and out, for a good amount of time to know what it has to offer❓... We're on WP8 now, and this is a very, very useful OS... If you haven't ever owned a WP8 device then you have no idea what you're talking about...

OMG, Rodneyej1 is a Typical Windows Fanboy hahahahaha. I understand that you can feel the bankruptcy of your Beloved MS/Nokia also the Boredom and being Useless of their Phones and O.S. Hahahaha. Only few few people likes Nokia Windows phones nowadays since they are Boring and can't do many stuff Like other Android phones from LG, Samsung,HTC. hahaha! R.I.P by the way to Nokia!

Ok then.. Answer my question.. What can't WP devices do❓ What makes them so useless❓....Have you owned one❓Have you used one for a reasonable amount of time❓... Do you know everything that they have to offer❓ If not your comments are pathetic...

Android lovers will always brag that their cracker jack OS has a million more features, but they like to skip over the part that it also has a horrible malware problem that is non-existent on WP8...

note 3 has just arrived. but you talk about note 4 this early! i can see where note 3 is going. u droid monkeys never get satisfied from ur latest android device. this is deeper than is**t!
21. allawi (Posts: 19; Member since: 16 Sep 2013)
Samsung has a very nice features but no quality. All there phone made from plastic. I like Nokia because their phones is heavy duty. The problem is now, that Microsoft bought Nokia which maybe will cause a really bad shift.
33. rodneyej1 (Posts: 3576; Member since: 06 Jul 2013)
It has been stated that nothing will change except a more unified experience.. Everything remains in place, that includes innovation, design, and quality..... Who gives a rats ass about the name at this point❓... It's time to move forward..

Again, I think the argument is more oriented as to how often Microsoft will update it's software or hardware guidelines in the future to support the newer technology that is going to be released. We are on the heels of some great Intel processors that are about to hit the market as well as 2560 x 1600 resolution screens (as I've pointed out before, not really necessary but it's something you can market). Then there's the question of how much RAM will be supported or what sort-of RAM can be used. The list just goes on and on, but as long as Microsoft updates their software/hardware guidelines every quarter then they should stay at least with the curve.

You know what? Your absolutely correct. +1 Doctor.
5. iDroid8 (Posts: 155; Member since: 16 Oct 2012)
Yeah, it was always a nice os but microsoft always kept the hardware a generation older. Now its ready to face the world!

35. Samsungadroidrules (Posts: 104; Member since: 28 Jul 2013)
Papss, You sure? So what can your Beloved Nokia Phablet can do? Text-Call, Play very Poor-Low Quality Games and Gimmicky Camera? Come on, this phone will sure become a Flop just like the all of the Windows Phone released. hahaha
40. CX3NT3_713 (Posts: 2028; Member since: 18 Apr 2011)
I agree., who really spends hours, gaming on a phone? Lol
2. IliyaBeshkov (Posts: 248; Member since: 09 Jul 2012)
Are Nokia going to use the same sensor from the Z1 or a 20 MP sensor from Toshiba?
6. theminolaboy (Posts: 128; Member since: 18 May 2013)
Aside from cutting edge specs, I want all future Windows Phone from Microsoft to be called as 'Nokia-something' not as 'Microsoft-heaven-knows-what' or 'Windows-Phone-I-don't-freaking-care'!

UHD display??! Did I read it correctly?
If yes, Uhu!!
If no, at least FHD, awesome too
15. raunak (Posts: 507; Member since: 12 Oct 2011)
it says that the processor suports uhd, doesnt say anything about the phone other than it's "awesome".
11. dax0330 (Posts: 23; Member since: 01 Jun 2012)
Great. Nice processor upgrade but still lame OS.
19. papss (unregistered)
Lame posters...great platform
24. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1635; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
"great platform"...In your opinion....everyone else says no....
30. rodneyej1 (Posts: 3576; Member since: 06 Jul 2013)
Yeah, but you guys who say it's lame haven't ever owned a WP8 device so if you say its lame it doesn't matter... Your opinion is useless❗.. We who know the OS well, and have used iDroid, say that its relatively good.. Our opinions about the OS mean more than yours even if we are the minority.. It's called experience..
37. Samsungadroidrules (Posts: 104; Member since: 28 Jul 2013)
How much did the Poor Windows PAID YOU TO ADVERTISED their Boring, useless Junk OS and Phones? Yes Experience the Cheapness, Boredom and Useless of windows phones. hahahaha!
43. arnolddhara (Posts: 3; Member since: 20 Sep 2012)
and you are allowed to favour any platform of your choice yet you are not PAID
29. rodneyej1 (Posts: 3576; Member since: 06 Jul 2013)
From your experience's owning a WP8 device, and using it extensively, how is it lame❓
41. CX3NT3_713 (Posts: 2028; Member since: 18 Apr 2011)
Might not be rhe best OS, but atlease it doesnt lag , or require a reboot every 4 hours or so
12. zuckerboy (banned) (Posts: 898; Member since: 22 Dec 2011)
there is no need to launch event cuz we already know everything about device :D
14. Yes-Sir (banned) (Posts: 58; Member since: 16 Sep 2013)
No one will be buying this, when Note 3 destroys this.....
25. g2a5b0e (Posts: 3481; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
It's a little crazy to me that with this new update, Nokia will be just skipping over the Snap Pro & Snap 600. I mean, to go from the Plus/400 to the 800 is a HUGE jump. Seems like overkill considering WP devices run rather smoothly on the year & a half old hardware. I hope they don't use this as an excuse to raise prices rather sharply on their devices.
31. rodneyej1 (Posts: 3576; Member since: 06 Jul 2013)
That 1080p screen is going to run much better with the 800, and playing games on the larger screen will have much better graphics with the upgraded GPU.. The 800 has it's purposes here, and is nowhere near gimmick.. Also, WP8 does run good enough with the current DC processors, but high end isn't about good enough... This device needs to be super competitive... As far as cost goes,, this device isn't intended for those on a budget... Once again, this is a high end device...

Yeah, but that's not Nokia making Android devices, so you're not getting what you wished for... The real Nokia will be making WP devices for years to come,, no matter what the name is... WP wins,,, and you loose.. Just stick with Samsung❗
38. Samsungadroidrules (Posts: 104; Member since: 28 Jul 2013)
