Nokia unveiled the long-rumored Lumia 1520 phablet earlier this week at a press event in Abu Dhabi. Nokia announced then that users can get the phablet for $749 without any subsidies and taxes, and will be available in the fourth quarter of 2013 in Hong Kong, Singapore, U.S., China, U.K., France, Germany, Finland and other European markets.
Recently, the handset was spotted on NStore.it, Nokia’s Premium Partner, who’s taking pre-orders of Lumia 1520. Users can reserve their unit by paying €99.9o with a €699.90 final price. This is something high, but the retailer mentions that the deliveries will be made by the end of November. The global version of the handset will come with a 32GB internal storage.
Interestingly, we checked a few retailers in the UK, but couldn’t find it anywhere except Carphone Warehouse. The retailer listed the device as “coming soon” with an expected availability date of October.
The handset comes with a gigantic 6-inch full HD display boasting a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset with a clock speed of 2.2GHz and 2GB RAM. Other specifications include 32GB internal storage with a microSD card slot, 20MP rear camera with PureView technology, 1.2MP front camera and runs Windows Phone 8 Update 3 out of the box.
