Nokia Lumia 1520 mini rumored; device to feature 4.3 inch screen, 14MP PureView camera
A published report out of China indicates that a "mini" version of the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet is on the way. The device will reportedly be named the Nokia Lumia 1520 V and will feature a 4.3 inch screen, down sharply from the 6 inch glass found on the full-sized version of the phone. However, the screen on the "V" will keep the same 1080 x 1920 resolution employed on the larger model. That could result in one of the highest pixel density figures on a smartphone.

The rest of the specs include 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. A 14MP PureView camera is on back and a 3000mAh battery powers the whole shebang. The phone is expected to be unveiled after Windows Phone 8.1 is released in April. There is also some thought that this is an international version of the unannounced Nokia Lumia 929 aka the Nokia Icon. However, that phone is expected to launch at Verizon with a 5 inch display.

Take this report with the proverbial grain of salt until we get some official word from Nokia. Check out the slideshow for a couple of glimpses of what is allegedly the Nokia Lumia 1520V.

4.3" 1080p = 512 ppi. That's insane.

I think they should stay at 1280 x 720. More than enough...

Maybe it saves battery but if the difference is marginal then by all means, the more the better.

There is difference between 1080p and 4k. 4k is more sharper and picture look more clear And have more ppi. So we can think 1080p in 5inch and 4k in 4.3inch.

Doubt that's going to happen... 720p is more likely.

I think the same. but 720 also good

23. g2a5b0e unregistered

I completely agree. Not gonna happen. Those are the kind of rumors that never pan out. If this device does exist, it will be 720 & the battery will not be anywhere near 3000mAh.

I agree, but speculating is fun. 1080p on a display less than 5" is pretty much useless, but it would still be cool.

Oh yeah it is powerful and may beat any mini device... Though it won't be international version of lumia 929....and it won't have 3 rows as it is possible for 5+inch phone

Good specs, nice camera - if it has the same or better processor, I'd take it.

You don't know there no impossible word in Nokia dictionary.

35. g2a5b0e unregistered

If that was true, Nokia would be sitting on top of the smartphone world. They're not even in the top 10.

Actually, I can deny it. At the rate they're going, they're still not going to be in the top 10 in a year. I do love their industrial design--some of the most solidly built phones around. Besides that, I remain unimpressed.

Dude its not about selling phone its about innovation damn it. Learn something that what we are talking about.

what good is an amazing phone if nobody buys it?

66. g2a5b0e unregistered

Don't tell me what it's about. I know sales don't mean everything, but I hate to break it to you. Nokia isn't the most innovative company out there. That's not to say they aren't great. I believe they are, but they'll never see any serious market penetration only making smart devices on an OS that has 4% worldwide market share. What good is your innovation if most people will never have the opportunity to make use of it?
