Along with their first Windows tablet, Nokia recently announced their first 6-inch smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 1520. The Nokia Lumia 1520 brings a gorgeous 1080p Full HD experience to the Nokia lineup, just in time for the holidays. Packed with a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 processor, the Lumia 1520 is designed to deliver console quality 3D gaming, surround sound, better battery life and the most advanced and reliable connectivity with industry-leading 4G LTE wireless technology.

The larger screen makes it easy to appreciate the incredible clarity of the photos you can take with the Lumia 1520’s 20-MP PureView camera. With optical image stabilization (OIS) images are sharp even in the dark as well as oversampling and zooming technology similar to the 41MP Lumia 1020.

As with other devices running on Windows, Microsoft Office is pre-loaded including Word, Excel, Powerpoint and now Outlook, so documents can be edited and shared easily for even more productivity on the go.

The Lumia 1520 is also loaded with exclusive photo apps including Nokia Storyteller that automatically integrates your pictures with Nokia HERE location information to collate a chronological picture journey on a map and Nokia Rich Recording that brings video to life with superior audio capture using four built-in microphones. 

Like many other Nokia smartphones, the Lumia 1520 also charges wirelessly for ease of charging and fewer wires cluttering your nightstand. Available in yellow, white, black and glossy red, the Nokia Lumia 1520 is expected to start shipping in late 2013.
