Leaked Nokia Lumia 1520 specifications confirm what we already know

Lumia 1520 Render

Nokia World will soon be upon us (in fact, we're already on our way out there), but that's not halting leaks and more from being published. Evleaks, a Twitter profile which has been fairly accurate in the past, has posted what are reported to be specifications of the Lumia 1520 - aka. "Nokia Bandit." While we'll be able to bring you the announcements, hands-on and more from the event floor, what are we looking at here?

Rum: 8

According to the tweet (see below image), the Lumia 1520 is set to sport the Snapdragon 800 CPU, a 6-inch 1080p display, 2GB RAM, 20MP PureView camera, Qi wireless charging (with compatible covers), and will be available in 16GB and 32GB configurations. Which colours will be available? Black, White and Yellow.

Evleaks Lumia 1520 Specs

These specifications match what we've previously covered (along with the 3,400mAh battery) and what we expect to see at Nokia World. The Lumia 1520 is believed to be heading to AT&T for $699 off contract. We'll have more details in the coming days. Who's excited for the Lumia 1520?

GelvinGSM says:

What about external storage? Any idea about a microSD?

Earlier leaked photos confirmed micro SD storage.

tissotti says:

on the live pics you can see the MicroSD slot and the tray for MicroSD next to SIM tray and slot.
On the leaked live pics you can also see the Lumia 1520 showing Lumia 1520 having 32GB card inside. 

TechBizJP says:

We'll have to wait for that tomorrow my good friend..

ArthJar says:

It is tomorrow by noon, since Abu Dhabi is some hours ahead.

Jf.Vigor says:

Its 7:30am there now. Means they are 8 hours ahead. So if anything it wouldn't happen until (at the earliest, and not knowing the exact event time) 4pm EST Monday.

KasakDesign says:

My next upgrade will be this phone

Rick Smits says:

My next upgrade isn't til 2015 :(

eww, cheapskate /jk
But, you should forget about getting under contract all together. Buy unlocked, enjoy the free world.

Josh Harman says:

I'd rather enjoy $500+ in my pocket and good network coverage.

xmarklive says:

I think you mean 500 now 1100 later ???

hal Turnage says:

I rather enjoy my Xbox One with that $500. Lol. And stick with my 1020

scdkad says:

Not here in the US. Very few people pay full price for phones. $700 is a waste of money for something you're gonna use for only a year or so..

andrewb65 says:

@ scdkad
You sir, make no contribution to dispelling the myth that Americans are intrinsically dumb.

Penny_1 says:

In the US, most carriers don't offer any monthly rate discounts for buying a phone off contract. You pay exactly the same price every month whether you get the phone subsidized or off contract. If you are probably going to stick with the same carrier for the next couple of years anyway, subsidized is the smarter option here financially.

scdkad says:

Thank you for posting this-Let's see if Mr. andrewb65 can comprehend!

welsbloke says:

I am pretty sure you can find plans that do not include a contact based phone but it will require a bit of digging around. I will say that my experience is the US market does not make this easy but I believe they exist although the distinction and value is definately less. This is something the networks in the states need to work on and probably one of the reasons why the iPhone is doing so well when in Europe for example it is declining and the budget windows phones are on the ascent.

Michal Varga says:

That is actually wrong - you can find plenty cheap plans - pretty much every carrier now has its own MNVO that gives you a 30 - 50usd plan with everything unlimited. If you have a 90usd plan, which you usually need, you save hundreds of dollars by buying phone outright and getting on the cheap month to month plans in comparison to paying 199 + 90 a month... So, yeah, you mister are wrong. 
(Aka - if I had my iPhone on att, it would cost me 2359 in 2 years, while on t mobile it's 1900 in 2 years with comparable plan... And my phone is unlocked thus I get to use it with local sim cards when I travel.)

You're right! That's why you don't go to the carriers for cell service...you only buy the phone from them either with a friend or family members account at a carrier or buy one from a place like 'Best Buy'...then you go to an MVNO like Net10 or StraightTalk and get a T-Mobile or AT&T compatible SIM card...this will allow you to use the phone on the carriers' networks even if the phone is locked to AT&T or T-Mobile...as long as you have a SIM card that is compatible for that corresponding network...six months after purchasing you can get the unlock code...come on people, do some research...MVNO's have cheaper plans and allow you to bring your own phone...I am currently running an AT&T Nokia Lumia 920 on StraightTalk with full 4G LTE and the same service that AT&T customers have without a cell phone bill due until next April...I have the best phone of last year (bought last year) and if I want I can buy a new one this year...I'm not locked to a carrier. Not bragging but being sensible...I make almost two thousand a week and I still look for the most sensible deal...if you only make $300.00 a week, why are you trying to buy a $500.00 phone anyway? A cellphone + plan should not be bought if its price is greater than you make in a one week check...stop following the Jone's and live according to your means and by God, stop Whining!

scdkad says:

Since you didn't understand my post I guess I'll just put you on my "dumb foreigner" list.
Read my lips: you don't get any discounts off your bill with any carriers in the US just because you make a dumb financial move like paying $400-$700 for a phone. If you are living at home with mommy and daddy and have lots of disposable income then more power to you.

ramrac says:

I can just slam my hand against my forehead. Nothing else.

scdkad says:

Sorry if I offended anybody but when a nitwit like andrew65 assumes all 320 million Americans are "intrinsically dumb" I gotta say something.

Wyn6 says:

Actually, that's not quite true. Bring your own phone to T-mobile and pay only $50-$70 per month. That's a discount vs the other carrier's $100+ per month.

Paul Acevedo says:

Andrew, please don't insult other users or groups of users.

I paid $450 for my Lumia 920 + $543 for one year of StraightTalk (AT&T LTE compatible SIM) + I'll pay another $543 next year = $1,536
A friend of mine paid $199 upfront for his Lumia 920 + $85 per month for 24 months for AT&T same LTE network = $2,239
$2,239 - $1,536 = $703 savings for the same coverage/same network
However I have unlimited calling, texts, and data and no phone bill for a year
He has a monthly payment and unlimited calling and texts but only 4 Gigs of data
Yes, enjoy the free world!

IceCrush says:

and you get to sell your phone unlocked after 2 years for maybe $250 !! ;) or 1 year for around $350 and get a newer phone :D

Thank you @Habibul_Habibullah
@scdkad - do you understand it yet? Think outside your little bubble. 
 

OMG55 says:

Me too, but gonna wait to see if surface phone gets released in 2015 after Nokia deal goes through

vincentchuck says:

The tablet phone :) can it do smth special with the advantage of big screen? Like multi tasking

tissotti says:

Nope. GDR3 has already been announced you know and available for developers. 

CobraJ82 says:

That's what I have.

LaNiQuE says:

My upgrade is next month but It's way too big I also wouldn't be able to make fun of my sister with her huge note if I get it

karelj says:

My gf and I are holding off upgrading until WP 8.1 and the hardware that will be released around that time. We are hoping for a high end 4.7" - 5" model.

jonathanrn says:

Not sure if there will be huge leaps forward in hardware with 8.1 .. The 1520 seems to have the high-end specs to match even a high-end Android phone.

True, but there may be other hardware differences between 8.0 and 8.1. Maybe a notification LED to accompany the notification centre? I really want a notification light...

TK2011 says:

Notification light would be nice but the Glance screen with notification info will do for me.

Jf.Vigor says:

If they just made the start button an optional notification light, no more hardware nor added costs needed

Sobr0801 says:

Just got a 925, have a upgrade next year for the next flagship.

Sunofabob says:

I'm replying to this thread because the arguments are interesting. We save more money in subsidized plans. Especially in the short term which is what really matters. In the end, its whatever. I don't like behemoth devices like these so I will stick with my 920 at least until mid 2014 when a legitimate upgrade shows up.

There should be some wind around this thing's launch, I think MS+Nokia would want it to be their their flagship!

Agent-P says:

Apple keynote is the same day and that'll dominate headlines.

mrcraggle says:

I can only imagine the Nokia stuff will have a tiny footnote on the Verge while Apple dominates top stories and forces all other stories half way down the front page.

I want to see at least as much effort as samsung put into its Galaxy Note

SargeT says:

+1520!!! Absence of red 1020 is why I'm still on 920 :(

rodneyej says:

I thought it came in red❔❔

Jf.Vigor says:

Red signifies evil, fire, devilish. I.e. Hell
Are you all satans minions? Reveal yourselves now

DreadVenom says:

Hello... U called. Joking. I got red 920 becoz 1. Its rare(in uk anyway) and 2. Becoz it looks like a beast.

cesar ruiz1 says:

Yes I'm Satan I will burn all, buy Nokia phones now or you will all burn with me. Butthead.

ryraansh says:

The one in the header image is kinda red.

DennisvdG says:

Really excited for this phone!, but I worry it's to big...

Me too !!! 6in is going to be crazy

I deal with it everyday and you get used to 6 inches

Rishicash says:

Tempting. Very tempting. :)

that's pretty small >:))

DennisvdG says:

I hope you're right :)

Rockartisten says:

Maybe you have gotten used to it, but has your girlfriend gotten used to it. ;)

Aryan Angel says:

That's what she said.

Reflexx says:

That's NOT what she said

ATT, & Verizon got new phones, but what about T-Mobile?????

Capsloc says:

Yes, what about T-Mo?? :'(

raycpl says:

Take my money... again!!!

Ahh wat money ??? Ur debt ? Oh okay i understand :P

Im due an upgrade in three weeks. Dunno wether to get the 1020. Wait for this. Or wait for the "new" 1020

txDrum says:

Well a new 1020 likely won't be out for at least until next August, while this comes out now.

devize says:

has to be the 1520, unless you're seriously into photos. The 1020's hardware is very old and the 1520's camera by the sounds of it should do a good job too. Unless it's too big for you I'd take the 1520 in a heartbeat.

spectre51 says:

Really wish they would have cyan devices more. Would love this or even a 1020 in cyan.

Rishicash says:

Many like Cyan and ask for it but they don't offer it anymore for some strange reason. It is also a color that is unique to Lumia like the yellow is and is good for branding.

Beijendorf says:

Nokia seemed to have lost it when they not only stopped the cyan colour option, but also made the claim "We love all our children equally" when asked why they don't include things people ask for, like Xenon flash, Qi charging, etc in all their phones by default.
 
They're hard to read and a little bit crazy. If it weren't for the outstanding quality and software support, they'd have gone bust so long ago.

Rishicash says:

Parents tell the red-headed step child that they love it equally but when it grows up it learns the truth.

rodneyej says:

Once again Microkia lets Apple, and others, take what sets WP aside.. It's almost like they don't want WP to stand out....

enzom09 says:

On another site they showed it would be coming in cyan. Bing it!

Shambels says:

I like my tablet and I like my phone...but I don't want them combined so I'll pass. Looks good though!

MrTimSmith says:

I'm getting it. My upgrade isn't up until April but I coincidentally qualify for AT&T next on November 10th. Check yours by dialing *NEW#

glassadam says:

Didn't know about that. Thanks!

SleepyTheDon says:

Would be great for T-Mobile to get a 32Gb+ device exclusively for 3-6 months like the big boys

lubbalots says:

Lets forget tmobile. Like sprint, there all in for Apple.

SleepyTheDon says:

And that sucks TREX balls because the iPhone is NOT that great to me.

lubbalots says:

The market loves the iPhone. They hunger for those gimmicks like siri and finger print scanner. They love those 500,000+ apps. They wow at the gold iPhone.

Hoekie says:

You forgot /s. Nobody, outside the US at least, cares about those gimmicks. Frankly most laugh about it. Android crushes iphone world wide with WP being the running up party.

jholso says:

i keep going to the store and playing with the note 3 i seem to have no problem with the size. But its deff to big for my wife.
If the specs hold true, ill be purchasing this baby on launch day. Sadly for my bank account, out of contract.

Dantekai14 says:

NoKia also coming in league of Specs war.

txDrum says:

Windows phone could use a spec boost. As smooth as the UI is, it still pages behind others when it comes to things like app loading times. Nokia Pro Cam could really benefit from the S800 for instance.

Sarang68 says:

Time for my 920 trade in which i hope Nokia will do.

Jf.Vigor says:

I'll take it in 16gb flavor black with flip over, on November 8th or sooner please :)
Can't wait to throw my 64gb SD card in there (that I originally for for my surface pro but I'm doing just fine without)

Jazmac says:

I'm still holding out for windows phone 8.1. This is cool but I can't forget that I'm on AT&T.

txDrum says:

Well we have the developer preview program now so yeah

Josh Harman says:

That's GDR3, not 8.1.

I really want more color choices again. Yellow just isn't "me", and black and white are boring.

Rishicash says:

You are not alone.

lubbalots says:

I wan less polycarb and more metal to add premium look and feel.

LaNiQuE says:

Cyan needs to be back as a standard color no sure why it's not

how1ard says:

Headline should read "Nothing to see here".

budney says:

This is my next phone, but I will be waiting for non-branded version.

I would be excited if it was to go to t-mobile lol

I want the 1320 on AT&T!

DJCBS says:

Couldn't care less for this device...the L1320 on the other hand...that's the one I'm eyeing.
I would prefer them to offer bigger memory though. I've found that more and more 32GB is a minimum acceptable (specially since we can't install Apps on microSD cards). I would prefer if instead of 16GB they would offer 64GB models. The better the cameras, the higher space photos take (I'll only buy a L1020, for example, if I manage to get the 64GB version). And yes, I know about the cloud. Except you don't expect people to have could services on their vacations, do you? No, you do not.

textomatic says:

If you're going on a vactation you should have ample time to back up all your pictures from your 1020 and remove them from your phone to clear up some space.  You could also remove the apps you less frequently use.  But if you happen to have a laptop or Windows 8 tablet with you on your trip, at the end of your day, you can sync your pictures to it and make space on your phone for the next day.

DJCBS says:

Well, I don't know many people who travel with their laptop's or tablets behind them. Not when going on vacations.

Anyway, if you make a camera-phone, you should be able to sport both things without the need to sacrifice any part of it. Having to remove apps just because the phone takes heavy pictures, shouldn't even be in question. That's what I think the L1020 got wrong by either not making 64GB more general or providing a microSD card slot.
If you want to make a camera-phone, you should make it so that none of those two worlds collide, and so that we don't have to "prepare" the phone for a trip just because the memory isn't sufficient.

Josh Harman says:

I agree.
Why make the "worlds best camera phone" without an SD card or sufficient internal storage?

Jf.Vigor says:

Save on phone until you get to WiFi to upload to cloud. I don't think you can fill up 16gb in pictures while on vacay

DJCBS says:

Except from those 16GB, almost 3 are occupied by the OS. Then you also have the Apps you normally need on a phone. In the end, you're not left with much space. Oh and forget any of the better Xbox games, 'cause each of them occupies over 1GB.
If you use you phone to take those normal day to day photos, sure, it's fine. You get back home, you take the photos out, end of story.
But on a vacation scenario, you can't really do that. And uploading to the cloud may bet less easier if your Hotel has crappy internet (or charges you outrageous amounts for its use).

Blacklac says:

People underestimate the amount of photos you can get on a 1020. Your not gonna fill it over a week vacation, unless all your doing is snapping pics and not enjoying yourself.

DJCBS says:

See the thing is: one isn't expected to use the L1020 just for photos. If you're spending 600-700€ on a camera-phone, it's because you intend to use both the camera AND the phone. Otherwise for that same amout you can get an even better DSLR.
Also, if you buy a L1020, it's because you're obviously into photography. Otherwise you'd buy the L920 which is the exact same phone minus the camera. If you're into photography, you take more photos than the average person.

di_Genius says:

@DJCBS I think most of these WP owners r just adapting to WP I'm coming from win mobile 5.0 through to 8, Nokia L925 even though the phone is nice 16 gig don't make it these days with 1 gig plus games hi res photos and videos I don't need cloud storage r uninstalling just to make space give me SD slot if u r going to do 16 gig so I can put photos, music and videos on SD card apps on internal, I've a 32 gig S3 with a whole bunch of 1.2 gig games and still have space my L925 only have asphalt 7 the only 1 gig game and its full.

Jf.Vigor says:

Not new. I had a Windows phone 7 day one.
But I've never really had memory problems. I actuall manage my memory and don't just expect my phone to hold infinite amount of data. The cloud storage helps with pics and videos but even if I never deleted them off my phone, I never have problems. I've had a LUmia 920 since it came out and I still have 16GB free. I could have much more if I just deleted games I'm NEVER gonna play again, and I know I'm not the only.
 

DJCBS says:

Of course you're not. I'm not saying that everyone needs 64GB of memory on the phone. I'm saying I would prefer if they would offer the 32GB as the minimum and then a 64GB one (or a 32GB with microSD).
People who don't need that much storage as you, wouldn't be losing anything. If anything, they'd have storage to spare. Those, like me, who need way more space on the phone, would also be happy because we wouldn't be constantly struggling to get memory (yes, because let us also remember the darn "Other" storage problem that was never properly fixed, not even with GDR3 yet)

andrewb65 says:

I carry over 32gb of music on my current phone. There's no way I can replace it with a device having less than 64gb unless it has a microSD card slot.

Josh Harman says:

Where are you going on vacation, Siberia?
Anyway, 16GB is fine with me (with a 64GB SD card). 8GB is ridiculous though, I don't think any phone should have that low of storage.

DJCBS says:

If I went to Siberia I wouldn't need that much space. Snow tens to look pretty much the same.
But I travel a lot through Europe and the Caribbean. Places which gorgeous cities and places that quickly fill a camera with pictures. 13GB of useful memory if ok as long as you don't use many Apps and aren't that much into gaming. Two things I do (try to take a 12 hour flight from Europe to the Caribbean without any sort of entertainment...).
the inclusion of microSD cards would help a lot. Still, it wouldn't solve the problem with the Apps, since you can't install those on the card for some reason I don't know...

Jf.Vigor says:

Sounds like you have money to spare. Mind Buying me the 1520 in 2 weeks? Gonna be hard to get it with the Xbox one coming out right around the corner

Paul Acevedo says:

16 GB really isn't enough for people who play a lot of games, though. The more complex games tend to be 500MB-2GB, which fills it up pretty fast. And more storage space is always better.

glassadam says:

Fully agree with you on this one, DJCBS.

xrs22 says:

Matte finish would be nice choices as well with gloss finish.

ImSoWade says:

I definitely agree with that

Dave Blake says:

I'm in, the money is in the bank

topleya says:

I assume as its 1080p this is a 16:9 screen?

calebt says:

Can't stand those square corners. I would switch to windows phone if HTC made the HTC One for win mobile.

Jf.Vigor says:

Doesn't look like that at all in the photos leaked by theverge a month or so back. This is just a render

cdbstl76 says:

win mobile???? Do you mean WP? Win mobile is dead

lubbalots says:

You'd probably miss Nokia's exclusive updates and support.

Jf.Vigor says:

My gf dropped and cracked her 820. At&t sent her an 8x. She sorely misses the 820

lubbalots says:

I miss pre-Amber as my 920 photos and videos were better before. Amber brought so much noise and graininess.

topleya says:

I know what you mean, one of the reasons I got an Ativ S

mbooks says:

Think this should have a stylus to compete with G Note. Too big for me buy know there's a market for large phones

GelvinGSM says:

Sadly, the last phone from Nokia. Will miss this brand forever. No others comes close to what Nokia has offered.

Jf.Vigor says:

Oh hush it'll be the same

Josh Harman says:

Not only that, but it's also not the last phone before the buyout.

Beijendorf says:

Actually Nokia has more phones planned for early 2014, before the Microsoft takeover. Rumours point to a second smaller phablet that may or may not have a plenoptic camera, depending on if the rigorous Nokia testing shows the technology to be ready for consumers. So this is absolutely not the last pure-blooded Nokia smartphone.

The Abu Dhabi event is however the last Nokia World event for now. We'll see if Nokia rejoins the smartphone market after 2015, or if they settle for everything else they produce as a major corporation.

Saurabh3321 says:

Fit all that in a 4.8 inch screen and I'm sold!
6 INCH is insane!!

xRiceyx says:

Agreed. Think I'd be tempted even though I just got a 1020.

Saurabh3321 says:

Me too!
I just got a 925 a week back

Beijendorf says:

Sounds to me like you want the 1320 instead then. Exact same specifications, except it has built-in wireless charging and a 5 inch screen.

topleya says:

That's the one I'm waiting on

anandv427 says:

Can't even play the mkv format..haha having big screen..enjoy playing some stupid games...$699..no proper multitasking too..fed up using windows phone...sry fan boys.

Lol, mkv on a phone. Xbox doesn't do mkv either, and we saw how that worked out. Go back to your basement.

lubbalots says:

What's mkv and is that significant?

Josh Harman says:

Its a video format that is used primarily with HD... and no, it's not significant because it's not widely used.

erzhik says:

Show me one mobile OS that can play mkv videos out of the box. Tip: Guess what? Android can't without 3rd party apps.

anandv427 says:

Yes dude..for android there is mx player for mkv formats..the restriction on video hub is preventing other media players to come to this platform....any way hoping the best to come on 8.1...

erzhik says:

Its clear you missed the "out of the box" part. Out of the box means without use of any other third party apps or services. The OS itself doesn't play mkv just like any other OS.

anandv427 says:

Yup agreed with out of box...but we don't have any apps even

lubbalots says:

Is the real purpose of buying a smartphone for games? I suggest a 3DS if games is your shindig. For multitasking, I'm not sure if any platform has a proper one.

Paul Acevedo says:

Some people do tak egaming ability into account when choosing a smartphone, yes. Not everybody feels like carrying around an extra device to play games on, even if it has nice physical buttons and such.

TechAbstract says:

"Yxplayer for WP8" app can play mkv format on WP8

Dusk22 says:

Would buy if on T-Mobile. Might even sell my Yellow 920 and HTC One.

lubbalots says:

Lumia 920 will get support 2-3 more years. The HTC One will be dead once the next flagship arrives next year. It happens with most Android phones. I don't know how folks have so much money to give away to Samsung. Anyway, I wouldn't sell the 920.

dxtr says:

Any rumors on how thin it will be?

Josh Harman says:

This thin (.....).

Some of that info isn't correct, but whatever.

Jf.Vigor says:

Lemme guess... color and memory choices?

Lol big fail dont comment numnuts :P update the article. :D
And yes i feel your suggestion he's leaks are a little misleading :)

Acbuono5 says:

Is this phone running GDR4 or something? Because last time I checked, Ms word, excel, and ppt was still part of Office and you can't pin Word or excel separately to the start screen?

iamakii says:

You can pin Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OneNote on the start screen.

Acbuono5 says:

I know you can with OneNote since its a separate app. Its not part of the office hub...how do u pin word and etc to the start screen?

BDBDBD says:

You can pin specific Word or Excel documents on the homescreen. Not sure though if you can pin the Word or Excel apps themselves.
 

clappenings says:

Will probably get it. Held off the 1020 this long

erzhik says:

Looks like I'm signing another contract. Sucks cause I wanted to move to TMob.

vitaliano says:

I'm also waiting to hear what t-mo will get, if anything and when. But if I stay with att, I hope to pick up 1020 with $0-$99 up front in a month.

Sean Lee1 says:

Does anyone know if they'll actually anounce the carriers at this event on Tuesday?

clappenings says:

More than likely I'd say yes

They have to have red , that's what I've been waiting for. Yo Nokia wake up.

2tomtom says:

Agreed, they have to have Red, please!

joeynox says:

At 6" this device is a dud

gevabar says:

I still think to many tiles in a row, looks like a cluttered mess....i have said this before, can't change my mind, they should have designed the UI with more back space like surface

Jf.Vigor says:

Cant wait to have this amount of real estate. There are so many minor tiles I'd love to pin to my 920 start screen but it would make it too long

xmarklive says:

Yes yes yes I agree

Josh Harman says:

Just make the tiles larger, boom, less tiles.

pmich says:

I completely agree. That's why all my tiles at the top of my screen are the same color. The rest are large wide tiles with relevant info. It actually looks really nice. these pics they show look so cluttered

Bruno H says:

So no built in Qi, huh? Seems like wireless charging is unimportant for Nokia...

Jf.Vigor says:

According to this, the covers allow it. They're still in the game. I just think it made the phones too fat. I love my 920 but it's a fat bich

DreadVenom says:

U are correct. Nokia is fully behind Qi but due to user feedback about the weight and thickness of the 920 they decided to remove inductive charging from within the devices for now until it is feasible to have the design of the 925 w/ built in wireless charging.

iamakii says:

Still waiting for 1320 to leak ;)

Hoekie says:

Me too. All of Lumia 1520 specs seems be clear by now.
Very curious what the Lumia 1320 will bring specswise.

And again....WHERE THE HELL IS THE 64GB??? This is starting to become a deal breaker. I looked the other way two years ago, but this option should be the norm already. This really isn't that frigin' hard.

Josh Harman says:

Get a 64GB SD card.

Paul Acevedo says:

Won't help with games until we can install games and apps to the SD crd.

Paul Acevedo says:

I'm hating that as well.

Why doesn't Nokia have cyan anymore? :/

Jf.Vigor says:

Because apple patented it lol

wetworker says:

My next phone. A 64GB version would be nice.

donebrasko says:

What if a windows phone doesn't offer SD slot? I wish my 928 did

TheDarKnight says:

Better come on Verizon

Wait a second. All of Lumia phones are 5:3 480x800 and 1280x768.
This one is 16:9 1920x1080.

Beijendorf says:

I always thought Nokia used 16:10. Weird format, the 5:3. And yes, Nokia joined reality and started making the standard format, otherwise it'd be like a TV-manufacturer who refuse to switch away from 5:4 screens.

Well the ratio was 5:3. And actually I kinda liked 5:3. It isn't too tall. And not too wide like the iPhone 4s (4:3) Old TVs had 4:3 ratio not 5:4.
It maybe possible that the resolution is 1920x1152. Also most of the apps are optimised for 5:3 not 16:9.

CanGueler says:

This device is just impressive

Joel H18 says:

Does this mean that when you buy the phone it'll come with the wireless cover?!

rplyons says:

Still no confirmation on if it's AMOLED or IPS TFT Display

Jf.Vigor says:

I'm buying either way but if it were AMOLED, I'd be counting the days by the seconds until this was released

I am sure it is AMOLED so the stand by clock doesn't drain much battery.

lubbalots says:

I don't understand the 367ppi?

cybermoose89 says:

Thought it was going to be in red as well curses id still go for it in black though

EMINENT 1 says:

No red again? Do they just not want me to buy this?

navidee says:

Until under 5" wp8 phones come out with quad core, I'm just dandy with my 1020.

pmich says:

The 1320 is exactly that. 5inches quad core and 1080p. Won't be long now

terrdogg says:

Fake... The time on the phone just happens to be 15:20

Jf.Vigor says:

Lol you're new here?

cybermoose89 says:

Price tag for the uk that's roughly £437

hal Turnage says:

Nokia should've left the phablets Alone until some software could really take advantage of the screen size. 5" would've been more appreciated.

Josh Harman says:

I think they should have had phablets a long time ago. To appeal to the huge Asian markets that eat these things up.

nbolmer says:

Bummer about charging covers. Adds about a gram of weight. Charging covers are grossly overpriced, ruin the looks of the device, and prevent the use of an actual protective cover

Jf.Vigor says:

I rarely ever drop my phone. But if I do, I'd prefer to have this wireless charging cover on it than not

nbolmer says:

Sure, but that's not the point.

Paul Acevedo says:

Yeah, I hate that you'd need a different case in order to rock the wireless charging cover.

xmarklive says:

Microsoft need longer tiles like what is available in w8.1... Damn that looks like a cluttered mess but hey I guess I kinda like messy I guess I kinda do maybe.

Jf.Vigor says:

Lol... And agreed. We need a 4x4 tile badly

I carry my phone in my front pocket. That probably won't work with this beast. One more year with the venerable 920, and then go with whatever follows the 1020.

Jf.Vigor says:

I put my 920 in my pocks this morning and it left a huge bulge next to my other bulge. They were competing for prominence. So I'm gonna have to figure out how I'll wield this 1520 beast

procen says:

LMAO! I think the 920 beat you with size and thickness. :-P

AureeOle says:

Why doesnt tmobile get one??

Who needs such a big thing? Too big for a smartphone, too small for a tablet experience. I'm not sure this will be a success for nokia.

dfeghali says:

Only 2 GB of ram? It should have 4GB for better quality apps and and multitasking.
And ram is cheap now even the note 3 has 3GB

You must be an android user. Even 3GB ram is an over kill for a smartphone. Also windows phone doesn't need extreme power to run smoothly.

Paul Acevedo says:

No such thing as too much RAM.

GSOgymrat says:

I dropped and damaged my 920 a couple of months ago. The case is cracked and the camera doesn't focus properly. I was going to replace it with the 1020 but then I heard about the 1520 and I've been waiting for release. If the 1520 lives up to expectations it will be perfect for my needs. I have been wanting a large screen phone since before they existed and with the great camera, expandable storage, Qi charging, large battery and WP operating system-- I am very excited.

Tell us about the 929/1320!

CobraJ82 says:

I'm fuking in!!!!

TechniqS says:

So where is the Aluminum version? A la "1525" :) Sorry but Nokia really got me with the 925, I hoped that they would continue this type of body alongside the polycarbonate for everyone else.

MrGoodSmith says:

This might be the last Nokia flagship

Connor Bunch says:

Why do you say this? The last Nokia flagship for what?

MrGoodSmith says:

Because once the Microsoft acquisition is finalized we will not see phones holding the Nokia brand

treiz says:

It will be mine!!!

Zeroplanetz says:

With the note 3 having 4k video recording I wonder when we will see it in our nokias?

Connor Bunch says:

It would be absolutely amazing if the lumia 1520's camera was 4k video capable!

Zeroplanetz says:

The funny thing is I think for instance the iPhone 4 or 4s even has the ability of 4k but its locked down because that's how apple does it. Releases incremental upgrades and calls it revolutionary. So makes one wonder what can be done already but isn't being opened up. Because they need something for later upgrades.

scdkad says:

1080p not good enough anymore lol
