We have recently unboxed the Nokia Lumia 1320, the budget-friendly version of the Nokia Lumia 1520. The device is still not widely available, but you can grab one on eBay if you can’t wait any longer. Nokia Malaysia has also just announced their pricing and availability for the Lumia 1320. It will start selling there on January 17th for 1199 MYR (approximately $369 USD).
In an emailed press release, Dick Yoong, the Country Manager of Malaysia and Brunei of Nokia says:
"Building on the success of the Lumia 1520, we looked to further expand our innovation offering by bringing the best Lumia experiences from Nokia and the latest from Windows Phone to a large screen smartphone, at a more affordable price."
The Nokia Lumia 1320 features a 6-inch 720x1280 display with a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, microSD expansion, 3400 mAh battery and a 5-megapixel camera. While the Lumia 1320 has a lower price point than the Lumia 1520, it still brings high-end experiences such as streaming unlimited music for free with Nokia MixRadio and downloading your favorite playlists for offline enjoyment. It also offers navigation and mapping services from HERE Drive and HERE Maps, which come pre-loaded.
Nokia Lumia 1320 buyers will also like that the device’s 6-inch display supports super sensitive touch so that it can still be used with long nails or even with gloves on. Gorilla Glass 3 is also included.
Of course, at a lower price, there will be some sacrifices. The Lumia 1320 has a less powerful processor, lower screen resolution, lower megapixel count, less internal storage, and less RAM than the Nokia Lumia 1520. We’ll have our full review of the Lumia 1320 soon for more details.
If you’re in Malaysia, are you picking up a Lumia 1320 on the 17th? Let us know in the comments!
