Riding on the high of the previous success, the Lumia 1020, the Finnish smartphonemaker is gearing up to release their next handset, the Lumia 1520. We’ve already seen trusty @evleaks’ press render, and the device specifications, and now more images have surfaced online actually depicting what we assume to be the Lumia 1520.
In the picture, the Lumia 1520, codenamed Bandit, is sporting a 20 MP PureView camera, with a Carl Zeiss lens, now a standard for the company as seen in the 1020. Based on the image, we can also expect the phone to be 4G + LTE compatible, and likely to hit Verizon. It is also plausible that a modified version of the phone may be released with other US carriers, like the 920 on AT&T and 928 on Verizon. Another fact we can gleam is that the device is quite large, probably close to the 6-inch phablet mark.
To quickly review the specifications, the device will likely come with a 6-inch 1080p display, powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. It is speculated to come with 32 GB of internal storage, microSD card expansion, and a 3400 mAh battery. It will likely run on the GDR3 update on WP8. As can be seen here, the camera speaks for itself, the form factor around 6-inches, the speakers at the bottom, and a dual-flash.
The phone is rumored to release in late October, and hit stores by November. This is much later than the September release earlier anticipated, possibly delayed by the Microsoft acquisition. Given that the makers of the WP OS have now acquired the company responsible for championing their OS, we can expect great things from the dynamic duo. This will likely be the last of the Nokia Lumia series, and they truly made a big splash.
