Nokia Lumia 1520 Details Leaked Ahead of Nokia World

Several rumors over the past week have mentioned tentative plans for Nokia to launch a new smartphone for power users are gaining traction today.

The company’s official online retailer for China, Tmall, accidentally posted some of the specs for the Lumia 1520.

Engadget caught the listened and mentioned a 6-inch full 1080p screen and a 20-megapixel camera and a Snapdragon 800 from Qualcomm.

Nokia is hosting a big event on Tuesday – the Nokia World conference – and the manufacturer was rumored to have been prepping a new flagship phone to their Windows Phone lineup. If this listing is accurate, it certainly seems that the rumor mill was right.

The would retail for just over $800, which falls right in line with the top-end phones from other manufacturers sans contract.

    As this is due to be the first and flagship phone for Windows Phone after GDR3 it was never going to have the 41MP camera on it from the off although 20MP is still rather high for a standard lens so it will be interesting to see what they have done to get there. I am sure though that early next year, perhaps around the time of WP8.1 we'll see the upgraded lens appear on a Nokia device and I think that is what everyone will be waiting for to finally move to WP. Windows Phone 8.1 with full HD screens, Snapdragon 800 processors, 64GB storage and support for SD cards, wireless charging and then the PureView 41MP Camera... What more can you want?

    It will be interesting to see by next summer just how manufacturers will try to entice us all to upgrade any further.

    Today Nokia will host an event and they should also show the Lumia 1320 (alias Lumia 929). It has a 5" screen, a Snapdragon 800 with a Adreno 330, 32Gb storage, 2Gb RAM, LTE, etc ...

    Awesome, they should have paired the Lumia 1020 with powerful hardware so the 40mp pictures wouldn't take so long to capture or load. I loved my first smartphone which was an LG Optimus 7 but LG's quality is questionable at best since that model suffered from a stuck on boot issue which makes it useless. Using an iPhone 4 now and can see the appeal with the apps, I can find anything on the iPhone but that doesn't mean its better, I had a lot of apps on the Windows phone that were better than what I have on the iPhone, especially my beloved PC Remote Server app.

    Next phone on my list is an HTC One. I want to see what all the fuss is about with Android.

    Great hardware and luckily in runs Windows8... Why, because it meanst we now have great hardware options in Android, iOs and Windows platforms. So far windows8 has not been supporting very highend hardware. Now users can chose a phone they like, with operation system that they like!
    For me these highend phones are too expensive, but they have a halo effect, and these specks will come down to middle range phones in few years, so this is a great thing for competition in phone busines!
    For me the 1320 is more interesting case because of the price but hopefully there will be 5" version too because I have not so big hand and so the 5" size for a phone is more suitable, but I am sure that that 6" version allso have succes among those who like big phones. It is important to have good specks in different sizes!
