If Nokia wants to be taken seriously in the high-end mobile landscape, it definitely has to continue doing what it’s been doing these past months, pumping up top-shelf Lumias of different sizes with premium specs such as high-res displays and mind-blowing quad or octa-core CPUs.
By the looks of it, that’s exactly what the Finns have in mind for the purported Lumia 1820 and 1525, the former of which shall land sometime in March and the latter in September.
Said to resemble the eight month-old Verizon-exclusive [easyazon-link asin=”B00CQAOIIC” locale=”us”]Lumia 928[/easyazon-link] from a design perspective, the Windows Phone 8-powered 1820 sounds pretty much like a Samsung Galaxy S5 carbon copy in the hardware department. Assuming what we’ve recently heard of the S5 pans out.
So both giants are tipped to measure 5.2 inches, sport 2K resolutions, pack quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 juice, 3 GB RAM, and massive batteries (3,400 mAh in Lumia 1820’s case). Nokia will of course insist a little extra on camera capabilities, with Xenon flash and whatnot, plus offer 32 GB built-in storage, likely with no microSD support.
Sound good? Maybe too good to be true? Too bad it’s mere unsubstantiated gossip, revealed by an obscure new Twitter user going by the nickname of “NextLeaks”. Well, no reason he shouldn’t be right though, so just for the heck of it, let’s also list this aspiring leaker’s take on the Lumia 1525 features:
- 6-inch 2K panel
- Quad-core Snapdragon 805 SoC
- 3 GB RAM
- 3,400 mAh battery (chargeable by solar display)
- 32 GB internal storage
- MicroSD card slot
- 25/30 MP rear-facing camera
What say you, guys and gals? Truth or BS?
