Based on our latest report, the 6-inch Nokia Lumia 1320 was expected to hit the stores at the beginning of 2014 but apparently Nokia decided that there was no point in waiting any longer and released the phone yesterday (December 27th). The device is priced at $339 and currently is available only in China. In the weeks to come, the Lumia 1320 will go on sale also in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and “other countries” which most likely refers to Europe. At the moment it is unclear whether the phone will ever make it to the US, but chances that it will are rather slim.
Nokia Lumia 1320 vs. Lumia 1520
In some aspects the Nokia Lumia 1320 is similar to the high-end Lumia 1520 phablet, however, in order to keep the price at lower point the Finnish manufacturer had to make some sacrifices in terms of hardware.
The Lumia 1320 features a huge 6-inch Gorilla Glass display, but the resolution is 720p instead of 1080p, delivering pixel density of 245 ppi. The quad-core 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor of the Lumia 1520 was replaced by a dual-core 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip and paired with 1 GB of RAM and 4G LTE connectivity.
The handset also comes with 8 GB of expandable storage and comes equipped with 5-megapixel rear camera. On the plus side, Nokia packed a massive 3,400 mAh battery inside the Lumia 1320, the same as the one found on the Lumia 1520, which should provide up to 21 hours of 3G talk time and 100 hours of music playback on one charge.
One of the coolest apps pre-loaded on the phone is HERE LiveSight which allows you to use the camera to help you locate your car. Other apps include HERE Maps, Nokia MixRadio, Instagram and more.
