Nokia Lumia 1520 appears at the FCC, possibly headed to AT&T

Nokia Lumia 1520 appears at the FCC, possibly headed to AT&T
Not long ago, the Nokia Lumia 1520 for Verizon was spotted at the FCC, and now, we have come across what looks like a couple of variants of that same smartphone, but tailored for use on another carrier. They are listed under the model names RM-938 and RM-940. What's the difference between these Nokia Lumia 1520 variants, you ask? Well, according to the FCC filing, the latter comes with built-in wireless charging capabilities, while the former needs a separate case in order to charge wirelessly, hence the metal pins on its back. Furthermore, the LTE frequencies supported by these Nokia Lumia 1520 models include bands 4 and 17, making them potential candidates for the AT&T network. 

The Nokia Lumia 1520 is expected to be announced on October 22, becoming the largest Windows Phone smartphone in the company's portfolio. Rumor has it that a 6-inch 1080p screen has been chosen for this device, placing it right into the phablet category. On top of that, it could be the most powerful member of the species, with a Snapdragon 800 SoC beating under its hood

Of course, the evidence found at the FCC doesn't guarantee that the Nokia Lumia 1520 is indeed coming to AT&T, but it surely increases the chances of that happening in time for the holiday season.

If I were to EVER jump on the WP bandwagon, THIS would be the phone I would get. It's such a nice phone. Too bad about the OS though. WP 8 to me is better than iOS 7 in my opinion.

As much as I love WP for what it is, I do hope we get a much more feature rich and equally quick and fluid WP next year. Perhaps, if MSFT isn't getting too much market share in US, it may actually try promoting WP devices in countries like India, China, etc by providing freebies (ex: a free w/l charger w/ a Lumia 925), etc. I love this device personally but the focus on American market is getting too much. We don't even have the 1020 yet.

Wonder whether we'll see that hover to zoom feature or whether it'll be one of the first phones to feature Cortana when the jump to WP Blue becomes inevitable. Afterall, the SD 800 guarantees it's future proof credentials.

This will be the phone that everyone will want over Christmas. The reviews are going to be great. Windows phones need to be 6inch minimum.

Is the final screen size defo 6 inches because pocketnow are speculating otherwise. I don't particularly like or trust pocketnow, they always doubt everything, even when a leak is crystal clear.

I think this device will have really thin bezels. Dimensions are 152 x 81 with a 6 inch display. Galaxy note 3 is 151 x 79 with a 5,7 inch display..
