New snapshots of Nokia Lumia 1520 put it side by side with Sony Xperia Z

A series of photos were published on Sunday that show the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet; the device is expected to come to market with a 6 inch screen, 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor inside, 2GB of RAM and the GDR3 update. Some of the pictures show the unannounced device sitting next to the Sony Xperia Z and you can see how the Windows Phone phablet dwarfs the 5 inch Android handset...

It looks like that is actually the Xperia Z1. On picture 1 and 11, you can see a shutter key, which was not present on the Xperia Z.

So every Nokia camera is "PureView" now. Way to water down the "PureView" brand established by 808, Nokia.

yeah its been like that since the 920... well sorta, not every one is pureview. only 92x series and above. for the 920 it was redubbed pureview phase 2 because of the lenses and OIS

I think windows Rt would make me sense on phablets instead of windows phone!

Geez, is Nokia worried about Sony for some reason? First a post mocking their attachable lense now comparing the new flagship's size to theirs?

Read the source of the article again - it says The Verge is the original source, not Nokia. But even if it were Nokia and they were worried about Sony, then the last thing they would do is make direct comparisons.

Oh com'on man, chill. Don't let your fanboyish nature be seen. It just showing the size comparison. To show how big na Lumia 1520 is. Not to mock Sony. Sheesh, fanboys getting dumb by the day..

The bezels have actually thinned out, they are thinner than the Xperia Z1's. In the first picture the 1520 doesn't looks that much bigger than the Z1 but in picture 4, you can almost fit the entire Z1 in the 1520's screen frame. Have to admit, I saw the Z1 and ultra in person and despite not being Sony's number 1 fan, they both looked pretty damn good! But the 1520 is looking to be a beauty/beast and the super phablet that WP8 needs!

I'm pretty surprised by how thin it looks in black. I may be the minority but I hope they keep some of the trademark black on the top and bottom bezel.

Looking at the camera bump, i'm guessing it will have the 6-element camera that came with the 925...a Pureview phase 3 on that giant will take the comfortability right out of it's handling.

I just found out it may have oversampling by questioning the dude who sourced the pics. It takes 16 and 5mp photos.

Would be better if the guy that leaks this side by side with a Z ULTRA

Or the Note 3. Or heck, the One Max. We haven't seen enough of that.
