6-inch Nokia Lumia 1520 Windows Phone
The Nokia Lumia 1520 is the biggest Windows Phone device that has been launched so far. The phone packs a massive 6-inch Full HD (1080p) ClearBlack LCD display with Gorilla Glass 2 for extra protection.
The screen features a sunlight mode and can be operated while wearing gloves. The display is big enough to fit a third column of Live Tiles.
Under the hood, the phone hides a powerful quad-core 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of internal memory with support for up to 64 GB microSD cards.
As it is typical of Nokia, the company put a lot of effort into building the phone’s camera. The 20-megapixel PureView camera offers dual LED flash, Carl Zeiss optics, lossless zoom, and optical image stabilization. There is also a 1.2-megapixel wide-angle, user-facing snapper.
The Lumia 1520 comes with a new Storyteller app that automatically sorts your pictures in chronological order to take you on an unique journey. Other features include a 3,400 mAh battery, dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS/GLONASS navigation, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and more.
