Nokia has never been the most skilled company in terms of keeping a tight lid on rumors and leaks concerning its not yet official products, but the soon to be unveiled Lumia 1520 still seems like a prime candidate for the title of worst kept secret in mobile tech history.
Initially known as “Bandit”, the world’s first ever Windows Phone-based phablet and also the first to pack quad-core power and sport a Full HD screen has been captured on camera about two weeks ago. And then again on Friday, and then again on Sunday.
Sounds like a PR disaster in the making for Nokia, but at least all of these leaked images keep the company in the limelight. We are after all talking quite a lot about them when Sony and Samsung have just announced new devices and Apple is almost ready to do the same.
But let’s see what exactly we can make of 1520’s photos. For one thing, the physical resemblances between it and the Lumia 920 or 925 are uncanny. On the other hand, there’s a lot of extra screen real estate for this new thing, which is obvious when compared with Sony’s Xperia Z1.
What else? Oh, yeah, it appears Nokia is not quite ready to go the HTC route and come out with all-metal phones… yet, so expect the 1520 to rock a polycarbonate (read: plastic) outer body. As far as specs go, I’m afraid there won’t be a 41 MP PureView cam on the back of the 6-incher, but a still sizzling hot 20 MP unit is in the cards.
Alrighty then, now how about scheduling an unveiling event already,
