After long weeks of speculations, rumors and various leaks, the Nokia Lumia 1520 has finally been unveiled in Abu Dhabi and every leak out there was right, apparently. This is Nokia’s very first phablet with a 6 inch display.
It measures 8.7 mm in thickness, weighs 209 grams and will be available with wireless charging and a colourful polycarbonate shell. The newcomer has a microSD card slot, a 6 inch Full HD LCD screen with PureMotion HD+ and ClearBlack technology, plus a 2.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 800 CPU. There are also 2 GB of RAM inside, a 3400 mAh battery and Windows Phone 8.1 as the OS.
The battery should offer 11 hours of video playback and we’ve also got the usual connectivity offer, with 4G LTE, NFC, AGPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and microUSB. At the back there’s a 20.7 megapixel Pureview camera with Carl Zeiss lens, optical image stabilization, 2x lossless zoom in stills and a brand new app, that combines some of the features of the previous camera apps.
A point that stands out among its specs is the presence of 4 HAAC microphones, excellent for audo capture. This device is expected to be available next month with a pricing of around $749 off contract.
