Verizon version of Nokia Lumia 1520 spends some time with the FCC?
The FCC recently received a big visitor. And by big, we mean screen size. The Nokia RM-927 visited the Feds and mobile ad network AdDuplex previously noted the same model number and said it was for a device heading to Verizon, carrying resolution of 1080 x 1920 and had the GDR3 update installed.

Well, off the top of our heads, that immediately brought up the Nokia Lumia 1520. The first Windows Phone phablet meets all of those characteristics, especially since we showed you a picture of the device dressed up in white on Friday, wearing the Verizon 4G LTE brand. The phone at the FCC supported Big Red's CDMA and LTE frequencies and was a world phone with additional support for GSM and HSUPA.

The diagram shows the camera and flash in a different location than the AT&T model. It also doesn't show a camera bump, most likely because it is thicker than the version heading to AT&T. One thought is that Verizon wanted a higher capacity battery and the extra girth makes up for a larger cell. We should know more on September 26th when the phablet is expected to be unveiled. A launch of the Nokia Lumia 1520 is expected in November, in plenty of time for the holidays. In fact, hold on to your seats, Verizon customers. Since the Verizon supported model went through the FCC first, there is some talk that the phablet will launch first on the nation's largest carrier before it is available for number two (AT&T).
