Nokia Lumia 1520 ‘Bandit’ Leaked Photo Looks Massive

Nokia-Lumia-1520

An image of Nokia’s rumored 6-inch Lumia 1520 has hit the Web, and the mammoth handset looks like quite the beauty. If the 1520, which was was previously codenamed “Bandit” becomes a reality, it will be the largest Windows Phone smartphone ever, and the first to sport a 1080p display.

According to The Verge, which posted the image, the Lumia 1520 should come packing a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The phablet may also feature a 20-megapixel or higher image sensor, which should make for some excellent photos. This phone would face off in the growing phablet market against the Samsung Galaxy Mega and the LG Vu.

Rumor has it that the Lumia 1520 will go on sale some time in the November time frame. That seems to fit nicely within the timeline for Microsoft’s long-awaited Windows Phone 8 update. That software release will feature, among other things, the ability for Windows Phone 8 handsets to support 1080p displays.

Multiple carriers will reportedly sell the Windows Phone phablet, but so far, only AT&T has been mentioned by name. Initial reports had the Lumia 1520 making its debut at the IFA 2013 Berlin conference. But Nokia isn’t hosting any major press events at the show, which makes it unlikely that the company will reveal anything, let alone its biggest phone ever.
