Nokia Lumia 1520 expected release date and price are right here

The leak also revealed pricing for the Nokia Lumia 1520. If legit it would mean that the phablet would not only have the largest screen of all Windows Phone handsets, it also would be the most expensive. According to the report, the device will be priced at $699 off-contract, which surpasses the previous record holder. That would be the Nokia Lumia 1020 which was stamped with a $649 off-contract price when launched. There is some speculation that AT&T will lower the off-contract price a little while the subsidized price will probably be $299.99.
The latest rumored specs include a 6 inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. The unit will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, with 2GB RAM on board. There is 32GB of native storage that can be expanded with the use of a microSD slot, and the phablet is equipped with 4 microphones for Rich Audio Recording (you have to say that with an echo in your head). A 3400mAh cell powers the phone. The Nokia Lumia 1520 will be available in red, black, yellow and white.
The Nokia Lumia 1520 is going to offer a lot of firsts for the platform. Thanks to the GDR3 update we have the largest screen, the highest resolution screen, and a rather powerful set of silicon with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. Will this be a major turning point for the platform?
- Display 6.0" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 20 MP / 1.2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, Quad-core, 2200 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3400 mAh(25.1h 3G talk time)

Same people making it, just the name is changing, like when Lenovo bought IBM's hardware division. It's like not being friend with a chick when she gets married and changes her last name. Same person, different name.

I hope that isn't the real subsidized price. AT&T was having a hard time selling the Lumia 1020 at that price and they are still having problems selling the handset at $200 on contract. They should put the starting price at $200 so that they undercut the Note 3. Other than that, the specifications look good so far. Just need to wait until the announcement day to know for sure what I think about the device.

I like what the Lumia 1520 is showing, but im going to stay with the Note 3 when it comes out. hopefully AT&T isnt going to have this phablet at $300 at the time of the release because we all saw how long the 1020 stayed at $300 until the price went down. Id have to see this phone in person before I can say if the 1520 will give the Note 3 a run for its money...............and ours lol
