Nokia brings with it 2 new Large Lumia Phablets to Nokia World

Lumia-1520-wireless-charging_632

Nokia World is upon us, and that of course mean’s that Nokia had phone’s up their sleeves – and they duly delivered. Unlike previous years where the focus was cameras, this year something else was the center of focus – Screen Size and specs. The Lumia 1520 is Nokia’s newest and most powerful phone ever, and it’s biggest as well, measuring a very large 6-inches.

Let’s take a look at the specs below:

  • Processor – 2.2 GHz Krait 400 Quad-core processor (Snapdragon 800)
  • Display – 6-inch IPS LCD Clear Black Display with 1920 x 1080 resolution (367 PPI) and Gorilla Glass 2
  • RAM – 2GB
  • Storage – 32 GB with Micro SD Card slot (up to 64GB)
  • Camera – 20 megapixel camera Pureview Camera with Carl Zeiss Optics (1080p HD video recording at 30fps), 1.2 Megapixel Front Facing Camera (with OIS)
  • Battery – 3,400 mAh
  • Weight – 209 grams
  • Size – 162.8 x 85.4 x 8.7 mm
  • OS – Windows Phone 8 (With Nokia Black update)
  • Colours – Yellow, white, black, red

Obviously this is a huge phone for the Windows Phone lineup (pun intended). It’s certainly a massive phone by anyone’s standard because 6-inches is a lot of screen real estate. Windows Phone has finally added support for 1080p screens and Quad-core processors, bringing the WP8 lineup up to date with top end Android offerings for the most part. And on par with the Sony Xperia Z1, Nokia have added a 20 megapixel camera take take pictures on the move. It’s no Lumia 1020 in the camera department, but it’s certainly going to be a good enough camera for everyone to use. It’s also incredibly thin at 8.7mm (while not as thin as the Galaxy Note 3 which is 8.3mm, it’s got a bigger screen, a bigger battery, and a better camera).

The only downside to the Lumia 1520 would be the weight, where it tips the scale at a hefty 209 grams – though extra weight would be expected due to the size and specs, as well as the build quality. Either way, it’s being priced at $749 unsibsidized, so expect pricing to be different when it hit’s your country soon.

Nokia’s second announcement, is also a large 6-inch phablet. But unlike the Lumia 1520, it’s a phablet focused towards the lower end market for a device this size. We certainly think it will sell more than the Lumia 1520, simply because it’s been priced at a surprising $349 off contract, which will appeal to very many people who have been looking for large phones.

  • Processor – Dual-core 1.7 GHz
  • Display – 6-inch IPS LCD Clear Black Display with 1280 x 720 resolution (245 PPI) and Gorilla Glass 3
  • RAM – 1GB
  • Storage – 8 GB with Micro SD Card slot (up to 64GB)
  • Camera – 5 megapixel camera (1080p HD video recording at 30fps), VGA Front Facing Camera (with OIS)
  • Battery – 3,400 mAh
  • Weight – 220 grams
  • Size – 164.2 x 85.9 x 9.8 mm
  • OS – Windows Phone 8 (With Nokia Black update)
  • Colours – Yellow, white, black, Orange

It’s the cheaper version of the Lumia 1520, with lower specs, without being cheap in build or specs. It still has a dual core processor and a 720p screen, so you won’t have to deal with a bad screen or lag. This could be a game changer in the phablet market if Nokia can get it across for what it is.

Expect this to be launching very soon as well.
