Nokia Lumia 1520 specs, release date, price roundup: 6" WP phablet to come with 20 MP camera and 4 HAAC mics

0. phoneArena posted on 21 Oct 2013, 07:50

Nokia will be going all out with its first phablet, it seems, as leaked Lumia 1520 specs show that the company is throwing the kitchen sink of what it is capable to produce in mass quantities at the moment. It will be the best-equipped Windows Phone ever, and the one that will introduce the wonders of quad-core processors and Full HD displays to the platform for the first time. Let's recap what we've heard on the hush-hush so far about the Nokia Lumia 1520...

Note 3 or 1520? The problem is 1520 might be available next year in my country. If that happens, I might just go with Note 3.

Only if windows phone can remove all its "restrictions in the name of security" it would be more appealing.

Humble opinion; Nokia has never been as good of a phone as HTC, Motorola, Apple, and Samsung. The specs look sweet and the camera stellar but still a lower end company.

I checked out the 1520 last weekend. I actually stand corrected on this one. Note sure I would exchange for the Note 3 but sill wouldn't mid running it for a month or so.

If it doesn't have a Wacom digitizer it's just more (much more) of the same. I would love to take notes on my Windows Phone with One Note like I do with my Samsung Ativ 500t -- handwritten with the stylus -- and have them sync across all my devices. This isn't an exciting device at all. I've had all the recent Nokia flagships so I'm used to disappointment. It'll lack all the features that WP lacks, maps will be iffy, plan on a restart when you want to share that data connection and the music player will stop randomly.

It will also lack the massive malware library that typically infests Android. Enough said.

Wow-we wow wow, I'm just glad that the most folks are happy. Maybe one or two complained about the 6" size, but this time last year, anything over 4.3" was frowned at. :) I'm a Note Man myself, but i say long live the phablet.

this will be my next phone. wp8 has all the apps now that i use on android. 6tag (instagram app that's actually better than the official instagram app on android), 6sec (vine app that is very good), facebook beta that is WAY better than it used to be, official twitter app that's very nicely done, and a couple other apps that i cant even get on android.

this phone looks very nice and has very good specs. only negative right now for me is it's 6 inches. but then again i said 5 inches would be a negative for me and now i like it. amoled display is my fav display tech, i love the deep blacks and in wp8 you can actually adjust the saturation of the display to your liking.

"A beefy 3400 mAh battery is pegged to keep the Windows Phone 8.1 lights on...". Come on, Daniel P.! Really, you don't know what version will the Lumia 1520 run? It's not Windows Phone 8.1, which is expected in Spring 2014, it's GDR3. Please, correct that, it's a shame!

If AT&T gets it first I will stay will Android. Nokia wonders why they can't sell phones when they offer their best phone for only one carrier. I would own a 1020 if they launched for Verizon. Last chance for Nokia to get me on board, I dont buy out dated tech.
