Qualcomm tweets Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet will sport Snapdragon 800

It wasn't completely clear until now what silicon will be in the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet,  though Qualcomm's current best mobile chipset, the quad-core Snapdragon 800, seems as a prime candidate.

That debate might be coming to an end, despite that the handset hasn't even been announced by Nokia yet. Qualcomm itself confirmed its Snapdragon 800 is in there, responding to a tweet, then quickly retracted the statement, realizing some non-disclosure agreements are still in place before the official unveiling, but the cat is out of the bag.

It's not certain if Qualcomm was also confirming pixel-binning 20 MP camera that is rumored to be in the Lumia 1520, but it surely confirmed the Snapdragon 800 chipset, so we know at least some of the monster specs speculated will ring true.

The Note 4 will eat its lunch, and the lunches of five of your friends, Lamia Lovers! ;-)

Well, as much as I like that Nokia is finally entering the phablet space, there is not denying that the Note 3 easily beats the Lumia in terms of features. WP simply doesn't have anything (that we're aware of yet) to compete with what the Note can do. We all know WP is the cause of that, not Nokia. I can only hope that at the very least the Office apps have been redone to include more features given all the new screen real estate. Of course, maybe, just maybe this device is for those who simply want a gigantic phone without all the extra "stuff" that others have to offer. It would be a ridiculous thing to do, but maybe they have to pitch it that way because of the limitations of WP right now.

What features is WP lacking that you speak of❓ What extra stuff do the others have, and what limitations does WP have❓... Are you listening to the comments being made by other's about old issues that WP7x had,, or have you personally used WP inside, and out, for a good amount of time to know what it has to offer❓... We're on WP8 now, and this is a very, very useful OS... If you haven't ever owned a WP8 device then you have no idea what you're talking about...

Android lovers will always brag that their cracker jack OS has a million more features, but they like to skip over the part that it also has a horrible malware problem that is non-existent on WP8...

Samsung has a very nice features but no quality. All there phone made from plastic. I like Nokia because their phones is heavy duty. The problem is now, that Microsoft bought Nokia which maybe will cause a really bad shift.

It has been stated that nothing will change except a more unified experience.. Everything remains in place, that includes innovation, design, and quality..... Who gives a rats ass about the name at this point❓... It's time to move forward..

Again, I think the argument is more oriented as to how often Microsoft will update it's software or hardware guidelines in the future to support the newer technology that is going to be released. We are on the heels of some great Intel processors that are about to hit the market as well as 2560 x 1600 resolution screens (as I've pointed out before, not really necessary but it's something you can market). Then there's the question of how much RAM will be supported or what sort-of RAM can be used. The list just goes on and on, but as long as Microsoft updates their software/hardware guidelines every quarter then they should stay at least with the curve.

Are Nokia going to use the same sensor from the Z1 or a 20 MP sensor from Toshiba?

Aside from cutting edge specs, I want all future Windows Phone from Microsoft to be called as 'Nokia-something' not as 'Microsoft-heaven-knows-what' or 'Windows-Phone-I-don't-freaking-care'!
