Verizon version of Nokia Lumia 1520 spends some time with the FCC?
The FCC recently received a big visitor. And by big, we mean screen size. The Nokia RM-927 visited the Feds and mobile ad network AdDuplex previously noted the same model number and said it was for a device heading to Verizon, carrying resolution of 1080 x 1920 and had the GDR3 update installed.

Well, off the top of our heads, that immediately brought up the Nokia Lumia 1520. The first Windows Phone phablet meets all of those characteristics, especially since we showed you a picture of the device dressed up in white on Friday, wearing the Verizon 4G LTE brand. The phone at the FCC supported Big Red's CDMA and LTE frequencies and was a world phone with additional support for GSM and HSUPA.

The diagram shows the camera and flash in a different location than the AT&T model. It also doesn't show a camera bump, most likely because it is thicker than the version heading to AT&T. One thought is that Verizon wanted a higher capacity battery and the extra girth makes up for a larger cell. We should know more on September 26th when the phablet is expected to be unveiled. A launch of the Nokia Lumia 1520 is expected in November, in plenty of time for the holidays. In fact, hold on to your seats, Verizon customers. Since the Verizon supported model went through the FCC first, there is some talk that the phablet will launch first on the nation's largest carrier before it is available for number two (AT&T).

Nokia is going out in style folks this may be Nokia's last model smart phone before it's smart phone division becomes Microsoft's. this is the first time they put out a Nokia Lumia smart phone on America's 2 largest carriers at the same time. they should have done that with the Nokia lumia 1020. A lot of people wrongly put down Nokia's Last Ceo Mr Elop because he chose Android over Windows smart however he allowed his people to experiment in Nokia;s labs to port Android to Nokia smart phones. Mr Elop oviously may have had the Android OS on special Nokia smart phones. Nokia would have ended up still the number one Windows smart OEM which they are and have Android smart phones for sale too and maybe become the number one Android smart phones OEM too. If the deal falls through then that is how it will be Elop wont be Nokia'a Ceo and Nokia will make Android and Windows smart phones. Nokia could still die because they are having financial troubles although they are the number one Windows smart phone OEM and are making profit selling them.

I would say this is the first time they've had one of the Nokia Lumia flagship phones on several carriers at once. Technically the 820 (at&t), 822 (Verizon), and 810 (T-Mobile) were all available at the same time and were more-or-less the same phone internally (save for radios).

This needs to be on EVERY major carrier. Period. Even Shi- I mean Sprint. Even better if U.S. Cellular and the MVNOs get it too. Sales sales sales sales sales sales sales sales!
