Nokia Announces the Lumia 1520


Nokia announces the Lumia 1520 phablet phone! Smart phones have gone through many evolutions in shape design and size. The latest catch is oversized handsets! We tend to blame the oversized revolution on the Note series devices as they were not the first; they surely made the trend popular. Nokia however has been pumping out brand new Lumia smart phones for quite some time with no supersized fires in sight, until now! The new Nokia 1520 introduces a new size of smart phone into the Windows Phone line up and brings with it an expected host of color options and a new variation of Windows Phone 8.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 has circling the rumor mill for quite some time now and what makes it unique has all but been confirmed. Back in September the oversized Lumia was ousted as its press renderings appeared in the headlines. In October the Lumia 1520 was pictured in the wild sitting next to a Lumia 1020. Today Nokia took to the state at their Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi to announce a handful of new gadgets including the first Lumia tablet, a mid range phablet, and of course the long overdue 1520. The Lumia 1520 starts with the likes of Windows Phone 8 as its operating system and gives users touch access with its super sized 6 inch full HD LCD display. Internally the device is said to be the most powerful Lumia yet and uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 system chip that offers up a quad core 2.2 GHz processor, Adreno 330 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and expandable micro SD memory options up to 64 GB. Around back the 1520 houses a 20 mega pixel camera with dual LED flash while a front facing camera offers up a 1.2 mega pixel sensor. Additionally we can expect GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, micro USB 2.0 and NFC connectivity. Pricing on the Lumia 1520 starts at $750 and will be subsidized via At&t exclusively…for now.
