Nokia Lumia 1520 Release Date Slated For Nov. 22 Through AT&T


Earlier this week, it was reported that AT&T would begin selling the Nokia Lumia 1520 on Nov. 15. Now, both Microsoft and Nokia have revealed that the world’s first Windows Phone phablet will actually be released on Nov. 22 via AT&T’s network.

Lumia fans can begin pre-ordering the device today through both Microsoft and AT&T’s website, with a choice of black, red, white and yellow. AT&T will only offer a 16GB model of the Lumia 1520 at launch, but a 32GB variant will be coming “in the near future.” Owners will have to use the 6-inch device’s microSD storage expansion in the meantime.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 is selling for $199.99 with a two-year AT&T contract, and the carrier claims the handset will ship on Nov. 19. Built-in wireless charging is limited to the international edition, but AT&T subscribers can purchase a shell accessory to enable the technology.

Unveiled at a press event on Oct. 22, the Nokia Lumia 1520 is the first Windows Phone smartphone to support quad-core processing and 1080p display resolution. The newest Lumia addition comes equipped with a  2.2-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 20-megapixel PureView camera with Carl Zeiss optics.

The launch coincides with the release of Microsoft’s Xbox One gaming console, and Nokia is rumored to launch its Lumia 2520 on the same day as well. A recent leak discovered by WPCentral also suggests that the first Lumia tablet will sell for $399.99 via Verizon with a two-year contract. This is $100 less than the $499 price that Nokia announced at the slate’s unveiling.
