Here’s a close-up shot of Nokia’s gigantic Lumia 1520

The Lumia 1520 is going to be considerably larger than any smartphone Nokia has ever manufactured, and a newly leaked photo shows how the large display is put to great use on Windows Phone’s Start screen.


It’s immediately noticeable just how much information can be displayed on WP8’s homescreen when you have the advantage of a huge screen of 1080p resolution. The Start screen can accommodate six small Live tiles horizontally, which should let users add more app shortcuts and in turn have less need of swiping to the left to access the installed apps list. Don’t worry if you’re not going to be getting the Lumia 1520, as any WP device with a 1080p display and the WP8 GDR3 update will be able to make use of the increased Live tile count.

The Lumia 1520 is expected to be unveiled at a press event in New York City on October 22nd, and will be the first Windows Phone device to feature a quad-core processor (the Snapdragon 800 to be exact, which was seemingly confirmed by Qualcomm itself) and a full HD display. A 20-megapixel PureView camera is expected to take care of the imaging duties, and it will reportedly launch for $699.
