Nokia's 2014 flagships claimed to be Lumia 1820 and Lumia 1525, great specs in tow

Nokia's 2014 flagships claimed to be Lumia 1820 and Lumia 1525, great specs in tow
For what it's worth, one new and yet unproven leaker account on Twitter claims to have more information on the rumored Nokia Lumia 1820 and Lumia 1525 flagships for the year.

As you can see in the tweets, the handsets are said to be loaded, with the Lumia 1820 sporting a 5.2" 2K display, Snapdragon 805, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, and large 3400 mAh battery, as well as a camera with Nokia's post-shot focusing technology and Xenon flash. The design is said to be similar to the Lumia 928, which is certainly slimmer than the current flagships Lumia 1020.

The other one seems to be an upgrade to Nokia's first phablet, the Lumia 1520, dubbed Lumia 1525, and will feature the same hardware specs and 2K screen resolution, but come with a 6" panel and 25 or 30 MP camera on the back, offering some sort of solar charging display panel, too.

Nokia's 2014 flagships claimed to be Lumia 1820 and Lumia 1525, great specs in tow
Now, this is just one random tweet, allegedly from a new insider setting up shop, or wishful thinking from a fan. It may or may not materialize this way, but we've heard already back in the fall about a potential Lumia 1820 that will have Lytro-style camera and metal unibody design. The leak doesn't rehash the design part, only fails to list a microSD slot, whereas the Lumia 1525 is said to have one, so we can assume a unibody design for the 1820 indeed, especially if this huge battery pack pans out. A Nokia phablet upgrade has also been bandied about, though not in the level of detail that the leak above reveals about the Lumia 1525. 

The question, besides the obvious dubious nature of the tweet, unconfirmed by a second source, is whether these weren't only plans in play before Microsoft swooped in and acquired Nokia. Now that even the Lumia name is up in the air, nothing can be speculated about the future Nokia flagships until something is actually announced, whether at MWC, as rumored for the 1820, or in the fall, as claimed for the Lumia 1525. 

Moreover, Windows Phone supports up to 1080p displays now, so 2K panels could mean another version is in store to be released soon, or perhaps just an update to the existing WP 8 edition, not to mention the Snapdragon 805 part, which won't be in devices before May. Microsoft, however, is said to be fronting extra Windows Phone manufactures with up to $2.6 billion to go towards the development of their own handsets, so eventually it has big plans for the mobile OS this year. Nokia seems to still be pivotal to them, though, if those leaked specs come even partially true.

I,m waiting for Wp8.1, till then great specs, just like the Note3, but with a S805. This would be Nokias finest 5.2inch screen. Wp8 is missing alot of feautres, that even the Lumia920,928,925, and 1020 all combined could not sell near a million, due to the Wp platform. Majority of users do not like Wp, aswell as me, if there was a notification then i don't mind giving it a go. Nokia needs to get rid of Wp and try another platform, then there would be greatsales of Nokias highend phones..

Exactly. But the lack of notifications is just the tip of the iceberg.

alterecho@If you hate WP8 so much, then why do you spend all of your free time posting comments in response to the articles related to this platform? Maybe you're a shut-in with nothing better to do with your time than post the same old arguments. It's getting old...

Extradite: "Majority of users do not like Wp, aswell as me". You are not a majority; WP8 OS is rapidly gaining market share, and is currently the fastest growing mobile platform on the planet.

Phones are great but only one thing need update OS first. Then we can talk. Go Nokia. This two phones looks like legendary. And will be great innovation if you put solar charging, but I'm sure Nokia always do innovation.

Yes, they need to update the OS as quickly as possible, i still remember that you replied to my comment a few months ago and asked me to wait for 1820 instead of 1520....i am waiting...:)

yea but the similarity in specs is worrisome. it suggests that they will be carrier locked. I'm holding out on getting the icon pending an announcement on the 24th. if its not going to be released for a long time or if its carrier locked on at&t again ill just get a icon.

I can buy any standard Windows phone in Finland without a carrier lock and that's the way we typically do here. Some buy with one, two or three year contract, but you may still put another SIM in. We don't think the "price" of a top model is 199 or 299, but the full off-contract price. In the US people pay much more using the expensive contracts while any goods in the huge market place with low taxes is very affordable.

Seems a bit too unreliable ! Seems like someone copied GS5's rumoured specs and pasted it against Lumia. 'The design is said to be similar to the Lumia 928 which is certainly slimmer than the current flagships Lumia 1020' - How is this possible with 3400 mah battery ?! Currently 928/1020 has 2000 mah and with increase of 1400mah there will be a seriously increase in thickness and weight, which is already quite high compared to other flagships ! Just sounds too good to be true, IMO

Never tought about making a device bigger? The phones you mentioned all have 4,5 inch screens. A 5,2 inch device will obviously be bigger.. I think all flagship phones this year will have 3gb ram and a QSD805, Not only the GS5. Many of them will also have 2k displays.

First time smart phone buyers who used Microsoft Office and Windows Desktop OS recognise the name microsoft and assume the phones will be good. They PAY for it........and regret later

You mean you regret it? Not everyone has ADD and need to tweek every possible thing. I happen to love wp8 far more than MySpace.
