With Nokia’s highly anticipated October 22 press event looming larger and larger on the horizon, we all got caught up of late in trying to guess the exact line-up of new products to be unveiled and kind of forgot about the big picture.
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! After cheekily smiling to the camera several times, Nokia’s Lumia 1520, also known as “Bandit” (old habits die hard), has been slapped with a probable unveiling date just a few hours ago and now has even more details attached to its name.
Nokia’s Lumia 1520, expected to be the first phablet powered by Windows Phone 8, has been revealed in excruciating detail in a set of leaked photos.
Windows Phone 8′s GDR3 update is slated to bring support for 1080p resolution displays, and a leaked screenshot shows how the Live Tile interface on the OS’ homescreen will be affected as a result.
Nokia’s upcoming 6-inch Windows Phone 8 device, codenamed ‘Bandit’, will be called the Lumia 1520 when it launches, according to the all-knowing evleaks.
Rumors of Nokia’s alleged first “phablet” have been coming our way left and right over the past few weeks, pretty much already setting its existence in stone. But if there was still someone who doubted a “Bandit” was imminent, all reluctance shall be shattered to pieces today.
Although it’s technically not yet confirmed, it’s no longer a national secret that Nokia is working on a 6-inch “phablet”. Codenamed “Bandit”, the big guy is reportedly headed for AT&T and could be the first WP8-based device to come with a full HD screen and quad-core CPU in tow.
Nokia is allegedly working on a 6-inch Windows Phone device that will be released later this year. If the rumours are indeed true, then this will be the first Windows Phone handset to come with a 6-inch screen.
