Nokia Lumia 1520 announced: 6-inch phablet with PureView 20-megapixel camera

Nokia Lumia 1520

Another long-time rumored Nokia device has been officially announced – Lumia 1520. The world’s first Windows Phone phablet rocks a 6-inch full HD screen with “super sensitive touch,” and an awesome camera on the back: PureView 20-megapixel with ZEISS optics, optical image stabilization, 2x lossless zoom, oversampling, dual LED flash. Just like the new tablet, this phablet gets its power from a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core chip, sports an LTE radio and comes with rather decent battery of 3,400 mAh that can be wirelessly charged. Moreover — and again like many other Lumia products — it will be available in multiple color version, including yellow, white, black and glossy red later this quarter.

Finally, let’s not forget 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage that can be further expanded with microSD cards. Price is set at $749 before taxes and subsidies. First markets to get the Lumia 1520 include Hong Kong, Singapore, U.S., China, U.K., France, Germany, Finland and other European markets, with others to follow afterwards.

Such big screen apparently makes the Lumia 1520 “perfect for playing games and watching videos,” and a new, third row of live tiles allows for “easy access to people and content that matter most.”

    Don’t like phablets… But I like this camera.
