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.

If it comes to pass NICE. I hope that all carriers in the US get it. So far it seems that AT&T has a tight lipped deal with Nokia like there 5yr Apple deal. They get everything 1st with a 6mth or 1yr jump LOL.

This case size is a better fit for the Human hand to hold. Folks now that Windows smart phones can use all the High tech gear that is available for smart phones to use. Microsoft can turn it's Attention to giving Windows smart phones the software Features that Android and Apple Iphones have that Windows smart phones now do not have. If you own a Windows 8 smart phone rejoice it's going to be upgraded to the more Powerful Windows Phone 8.1 OS and will have new functions added to Windows smart phones.

@41 try metrotube for YouTube. Secondly if the number of devices is growing, hopefully the number of users will grwand there for the. Number of apps. Though the situation with apps is a mindset not the truth

Nokia and Microsoft should focus on improving app store rather then pushing devices to the market I have Nokia 1520 and can't find top apps like google + YouTube etc,

Microsoft or Nokia can't do nothing about google+ or Youtube, google is the one refusing to create them ..

the image is far as i remember Joe from Microsoft said that 6 tile space wont come to just any phone with a 1080p would have to do with the size of the screen of the phone...and 4.3 definitely doesn't fit that description

Just give me 720p with that 3000mah battery and I'm fine.

Same here. If it has a 720p with 4.3" screen. It will still have a very sharp screen and a killer battery life with 3000mah.

With those specs, this would be gladly welcomed for those who feel phone sizes are getting too large but still want top of the line everything! Probably will be another ATT exclusive so its a no go for me!

Voting for 720p. But casual end user will buy it becuase say FULL HD is better then HD, even he will never notice the deifference or can use the higher density. But battery suffers. That is why i would like the 720p. Actualy, it will be mix of the best ergonomy of 4.3" and power!
