6" Nokia Lumia 1320 outed with 3400 mAh battery: 'going large at a lower price'

6" Nokia Lumia 1320 outed with 3400 mAh battery: 'going large at a lower price'

That elusive Batman phone that leaked here and there before today, is finally official under the title Nokia Lumia 1320 for $339 before subsidies, rollout early next year, in orange, yellow, black and white. It fits the niche for those who'd like a really big-screen, yet midrange Windows Phone device that won't break the bank.

The 1320 sports a 6" 720x1280 pixels supersensitive IPS-LCD panel with Gorilla Glass 3 protection, a 1.7 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400, 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory plus microSD slot, and 5 MP camera with flash on the back. The kicker is that this thing not only sports 4G LTE and HSPA+ connectivity like the 1520, but it borrows its huge 3400 mAh battery as well, so you can expect some record endurance from it.

Moreover, most of the new apps and imaging innovations found from the Nokia Lumia 1520 are present on the Nokia Lumia 1320 as well, and will be coming to existing Lumias around the world with the next software update called “Lumia Black”. This one will begin rolling for older Lumias in early 2014.

The phablet's dimensions aren't for the faint of heart, as you can expect from a 6-incher, at 164.25 x 85.9 x 9.79 mm and with a weight of 220g. As we mentioned, the Nokia Lumia 1320 will be available in a choice of orange, yellow, black, or white, and is coming first to China and Vietnam early next year, then to other Asian markets, India and European markets. It carries an estimated price of USD 339 before local taxes and subsidies, says Nokia, which is a pretty good deal for those who want a big screen handset on a budget.

This is probably the best priced budget phablet in the market right now

i think in my personal opinion 1.5 years back Note 2 with 2GB ram better than this .. and very cheap also.. 720P on 6inch is like 480P on galaxy grand ! will wait for reviews.

Brand new Note 2 in the box is not available anymore in my country. And the second handed Note 2 is still $500. Nokia 1320 is better, better design & better build quality. Lol, the display of 1320 is like samsung galaxy grand? 245 ppi vs 187 ppi you say are the same? Note 2: 267 ppi Lumia 1320: 245 ppi Grand: 187 ppi in my experience, 218 ppi already looks smooth in my Lenovo A800. 245 is even smoother.

completely wrong , 1.5 year old(by android devices standards ) means the update cycle will end soon while this new device still has an update cycle to live . not to mention , this has same hardware as the 1 gb ram 92x phones so no app restrictions and a smooth experience as it gets.

Good budget phone. Nokia knows how to keep their customers happy. If only MS could be a little bit faster with updates like Android or iOS.

I don't know how many updates Android has in a year, but these phones have the 3rd in 12 months. How often do you want to update your phone?

for that price, this sounds like a really good phone.

720p 6" screen? Oh wait, we still have 720p 32" TVs. Screen res is one of the many things in the smartphone world we've come to take for granted.

Yeah. I have a Fonepad that has a 7" 1280x800 screen. They'll be approximately the same PPI. Totally livable, especially considering there's not that much to do on Windows Phone except for watch Netflix and browse the internet....

Well, I'm an android fan, but WP8 app selection has improved massively and there are a lot more top-notch games.

Wow. That price tag is great. This will be a great backup phone that can work like a 6" Netflix tablet for my kids while my SIM is in a phone with a full featured OS. Or I'd totally buy this as a toilet surfer tablet.

Great value for money device. I think 1GB of RAM is enough for Windows Phone right now. So this phone is a good shot. That's a well done from Nokia.

20. taikucing unregistered

I'm sure this phone will win in the market like India, Indonesia, and etc. I'm sick of random Chinese phones, mediatek and overpriced mid-end Samsung plastic crap.

I think nokia should have started with phablets in the 5" category. Taking a jump from 4.5" to a gagantic 6" screen seems a bit strange. I am not really sure how people will react to it as the current lumia phones (920/925) are as heavy as a brick. As compared to 220g of this phone mega 5.8 weighs 182g.
