Nokia’s long rumored 6-inch Lumia 1520 is reportedly set for an early November launch. The 1520, which has been leaked more times than we can remember, is expected to be the largest Windows Phone 8 handset to come to market, and the first to be made available with Microsoft’s updated Windows Phone 8.1 operating system preloaded.

According to Windows Phone Central, the Lumia 1520 will hit AT&T store shelves on Nov. 8 for for $299 with a two-year contract. The handset’s big debut is reportedly scheduled for two weeks prior, on Oct. 22. Previous rumblings surrounding the Lumia 1520 had the massive smartphone set to launch on Sept. 26, though it appears that date may pass without any news from Nokia.

Normally such wide ranging reports on a handset’s launch date would be suspect, but the Lumia 1520 is a special case. Rumors regarding the smartphone’s launch have been circulating for several weeks. But with Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Nokia’s mobile device, the companies may have decided that debuting a new smartphone so close to such a major business development would have a negative impact on the Lumia 1520′s potential sales.

The 1520 is expected to feature a 6-inch, 1920 x 1080-pixel display and sport a 2.15-GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM. Available colors for the handset are expected to include black, red, white and yellow. The Lumia 1520′s rumored $299 asking price may seem a bit steep, but it matches up with what Samsung originally charged for the Note and Note II. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more information about the 1520.
