The Nokia Lumia 2520 is said to sport a 10.1-inch, 1920 x 1080p IPS display and come packing a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.  Around back, the Nokia tablet is expected to include a 6.7-megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens. Previous reports also indicate that the Lumia 2520 will be available with 4G LTE connectivity, as evidenced by a leaked photo of a Verizon 4G LTE logo on the back of one of the tablets. Battery life for the tablet is estimated at roughly 10 hours, though that’s sure to be cut down when using LTE. 

Nokia’s Oct. 22 event could also see the debut of the company’s first Windows Phone 8.1 handset, the 6-inch Lumia 1520. That handset, will be the first Windows Phone to launch with a 1080p display. Previous reports pointed to the Lumia 1520 hitting store shelves on Nov. 8 for AT&T for $299 with a two-year contract.

We’ll bring you more information from Nokia’s October event. Stay tuned.
