Specs leak once more for Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet
With the unveiling of the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet on Tuesday just days away, another leak of the 6 incher's specs have graced us with an appearance on this lazy Sunday. What gives these specs a touch more believability is that they came from a tweet sent out by evleaks, who has already proven himself to be a reliable source of information.

On the other hand, the tweet really just confirms earlier leaks, but you know something, that's not a bad thing after all. Thanks to the GDR3 update (which debuts on this phone, by the way), the Nokia Lumia 1520 will sport a 6 inch glass with 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. That should give the display on the handset the highest resolution on any Windows Phone. And we would be amiss if we didn't point out the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor driving the unit.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 will offer 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of native storage, a 20.7MP PureView shooter on the back, and built-in Qi wireless charging technology. The phablet will be offered in black, white and yellow. We expect to see the device launch via AT&T the second week of November for $299.99 on contract, and while not listed on the tweet, there should be a pretty hefty 3400mAh cell powering the model.

With all of the momentum that the platform has come up with in the low end of the marketplace, this is a big turning point for Windows Phone. The GDR3 update now allows Microsoft's mobile OS to compete on a more level playing field with Android. Now if only Microsoft could work something out with Google for an Android or iOS style YouTube app.
