Nokia Bandit Phablet to be dubbed Nokia Lumia 1520
You may have already heard about Nokia’s phablet and now it seems like name of the device has been leaked. The device which was codenamed Bandit will reportedly bear the name ‘Lumia 1520’. The new rumor came from @evleaks twitter account.
There was a leak of Nokia phablet’s front-panel before, and with this new information, we could almost confirm that such a huge device from Nokia is in the pipeline. The device number also has similarities with Nokia Lumia devices launched recently or the major releases from Nokia this year. As you know, major releases like Lumia 1020, 920, 720 from Nokia end with two digits that is “20” except the Nokia 925 and 625 which were upgraded version of Nokia 920, and Nokia 625 respectively, and this indicates the name of the Nokia Bandit phablet’s real name could be Nokia 1520.
Anyway, there is no much information for the device such as other features like processor, camera and display resolution but some report suggests Snapdragon 800 in the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet.
If the Nokia launches this phablet, Nokia Lumia 1520 will be the first phablet from the company and will rival its counterpart Samsung Galaxy Note series even though feature-wise Lumia device could be far behind the Galaxy Note series. Nokia Lumia 1520 is expected to features a 6-inch 1080p display and the OS will certainly be Windows Phone 8.
Nokia has anno0unced a wordwide premier for August 28 and this event taking place in Moscow could at least tease this new device and also the Windows RT tablet, but take this with a pinch of salt. We will keep you posted.
