Nokia Lumia 1520 cyan version leaks, phablet gets teased in new Glance Background screenshot
Nokia might be teasing the upcoming Lumia 1520 phablet with the Glance Screen snapshot it posted on Twitter. The tease is actually for the new Glance Background beta, which lets you put, well, backgrounds to show while your screen is off, besides the usual time and notifications. 

Observant folks have noticed that the time on the screenshot with the tiger below is exactly 15:20, alluding to the grand unveiling of Nokia's first phablet next week. Meanwhile we also had the Lumia 1520 leak in cyan, in addition to the black, red and yellow colors rumored so far, but we'll know for sure come October 22nd.

As for worries about screen burn-in and battery drain if you use the new Glance Background feature for Nokia's Lumias, the company has seemingly addressed those as well:

What's so amazing in that? It's looks like a very minor feature to make such a big thing about. Samsung also have such a feature, but hardly they mention it anywhere.

Which Samsung devices have this? I think this is cool and woild like to have it as well. I have the OG Note at the moment waiting to see what drops at the end of the year to get something new.

I believe the Note 2 was the first Samsung phone to have this feature. The S4, Galaxy Round, & Note 3 also have it. It's called Quick Glance.

Nokia's marketing team deserves a massive bonus. Most of their ads are simply ingenious.

Nokia did a good job. I used to have it on my Nokia n8. Today, I have it on my lumia 820. I put a really nice pictures. You could adjust them to get the perfect look.
