Nokia is going big this year. Only on Monday we told you about the company’s first tablet, codenamed Sirius, and today we are back with new about another huge device. This time round it is a phablet, a hybrid between a smartphone and a tablet. The device, codenamed Bandit, apparently will be officially called Nokia Lumia 1520. The news comes from @evleaks, and knowing the famous tipster’s reputation, this is most probably the name the handset will bear.
6-inch Nokia Lumia 1520 Windows 8 Phablet
The Nokia Lumia 1520 first popped on radar over two months ago, when a photo suggesting that Nokia is working on a bigger than average device appeared on the internet. According to a report from last week, the phone will be headed to AT&T by the end of this year. It looks like the carrier is currently testing the device. The Nokia Lumia 1520, or Bandit, will be the first Windows Phone-powered phablet coming to the market.
Not many technical details are known at the moment. We hear that the handset will feature a 6-inch display with 1080p resolution and will house a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The camera is rumored to offer no less than 20 megapixels.
Due to the employment of high-end camera components, the Nokia Lumia 1520 will certainly not break any world record of thinness. The phablet will run Windows Phone 8 with GDR3 updated, which you might have guessed from the presence of 1080p resolution and quad-core processor.
