Nokia Lumia 1520 gets certified in China
A familiar looking device was spotted at China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center. This is the agency in the country that is equivalent to the FCC in the states,and the familiar device was the Nokia Lumia 1520. This is the first Windows Phone phablet and is expected to be unveiled on September 26th. According to a new tweet from evleaks, the launch date for the Nokia Lumia 1520 has been pushed back to October 22nd.

Thanks to the GDR3 update installed on the phone, the device will have a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution on a 6 inch screen and will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. A 20MP PureView camera will be on back, with Carl Zeiss optics. A 3400mAh cell should keep the lights on for most of the day, and a 32GB capacity microSD slot will be available to expand storage.

Make no mistake about it, the Nokia Lumia 1520 is a major release for the platform thanks to the GDR3 update. We've now seen the phablet get certified in the U.S. and in China.


Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

startscreen can be organized the way you want you decide how it look ... you can pin unpin choose default tiles color, tiles size, which tiles/apps should be on top ..... etc

The photo frame has more bezels than Xperia Z1 and Lumia 1520, you guys can bash the photo frame if you want to. Enough with the bezel argument already, those who want a bezelless phone get the LG G2. What's the point of arguing about bezels? The bezels won't magically disappear, it's still there! Those who complain about the bezels on the Z1 is an idiot, don't you know that water-resistant/waterproof phones must have bezels? The S4 Active failed on the water test is because of the less bezels.

Seems to me you've been holding that in for awhile. Relax, I'll let you ride my Ferrari as soon as I park it on the bezels of the Z1 lol. Just kidding.

I try to understand this wierd fixation about bezels... Seens too me like one of the least important aspects of phone. But, then again, I praise construction and camera above all other aspects and I am sure it clouds my judgement as well.

I don't mind bezel (good thing since I like Nokia phones lol) but what I do hate on screens is when it's off you can see lines in the screen like circuits or something.. My n4 had them and it drove me nuts.

Bezel looking huge because side of live tiles they leave some black space on screen, but when u see white background u will notice smaller bezel.

Don't tell me u confused the entire area "under" the tiles as bezel. The bezel is only half the thickness you thought it was. Look close! Clearblack is definitely the winner here.. LOL!!

let's say the hardware will be great, amazing. still, most people if not all will not buy this phone cause it runs Windows os (and i will add, typical nokia ugly design) = nokia failed. nokia, face reality, people either choose android or ios.
