Not quite sure where these additional camera details have come from (the other specs seem to be rumour round up  – e.g. wireless charging for global), reddit doesn’t seem to question it.

An interesting notion that the camera won’t be taking full 20mp shots like the 808 nor 1020 takes full 41mp due to the X sensor that doesn’t just ‘crop’ when switching between 16:9 and 4:3.

Improved OIS would be interesting to see what Nokia’s engineers have done over the 925/1020. Improved pano would be great as anything would frankly be better than the current implementation. The Nokia Camera app has been said to be the merger of Smart Cam and Pro Cam, a wish by some reviewers on the 1020 camera experience.


The MicroSD card was one of the first nice rumours we heard about the 1520 as well as the 1080p 6″ screen powered by a quadcore snapdragon 800 CPU and 3400mAh battery.

Hopefully, Nokia will present the 1520 amazingly like the 1020. Although the specsheet was completely revealed prior to launch, Nokia’s keynote was the most captivating that they’ve ever made and would be one to remember across the industry.

    Looks more TALL than WIDE. Or am I wrong?

    • Janne

      As the first 16:9 Lumia this is, that would be expected yes.

  • weirdfisher

    I hope Nokia can release a Lumia 1025 with upgraded processors and screens and camera app before the ms aquisition

    • chris wayne

      hope so too!, i guess that the pro cam app would be a lot faster on the snapdragon 800

      • torcida

        Just look how fast the cam app on the 808 is, with a 1.3 GHz single core!! 😉 😛

        • Weirdfisher

          I think thats because of the dsp rather than the cpu

  • Alvester

    Who’ll be presenting this phone I wonder.

    • Marcel D. Juhnke

      Stephen Elop of course. Though he isn’t CEO anymore, he is still EVP of Devices & Services and therefore still in charge of Nokia’s mobile division.

    • Elop, who else?

  • box

    I really hope Nokia gives this a strong start by having no carrier exclusives (at least for GSM). T-Mobile US has been the only US carrier to constantly offer a Nokia phone for the last decade.

    • efekt

      I don’t think Nokia is “there” yet, in terms of market-share, to be able to drop the carrier exclusives…
      Maybe if or when Nokia would grab 20%+ of the market, that’ll be possible.

    A 6 inch phablet measuring 152*81*8.7 mm and weights only 160g? Seriously?

    What rivals could possibly stand up against such a phone?

    • Jomppa

      No, if the size really is 152*82mm then the screen will be 5.7 inch. Bezels on all pics and renders are equivalent to this.

      • Iki

        That’s what I think too, because the Note 3 have a 5.7inc screen and is the same hight. When I see the small bezels on the Note 3 there’s no way that Nokia is gone squeeze a 6inc screen on 152mm body.

        • arg0

          Indeed the device has comparable size to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. However, the leaked pictures suggest a wider bezel. I guess that’s a drawback of the fabula design and rounded device edges: although they make the device feel nicer in the hand, they increase overall width.

          Moreover, there’s one leaked pic that shows it next to an iPhone 4S. By taking some rough measurements and making proportions, that picture suggests that the Lumia 1520 is about 89mm wide. Maybe that was a fake Lumia 1520, but I don’t hold my breath for the above specs.

    So the AT&T version doesn’t get Qi built in. Figures. AT&T hasn’t allowed headphones to be packed in a while either. It better be worth it, size , design and weight wise.

    In my opinion the grill and hump look Huawei cheapo.

    Also, that hand looks like it belongs to someone descendant from India or Pakastan. However its most likely shot in Abu Dhabi

      Wow! You can predict the lineage of people just by looking at photos of body parts? You will soon make DNA tests obsolete

    • Subashish

      It’s amazing how in a blog on Nokia you managed to concentrate on something specified under eugenics. Hats off for noticing the finger and also running a tirade against Nokia’s design. If that looks cheap I bet you must be using one of those Sams*** trashboards with flimsy plastic matchbox externals.

    Even if this debuts for the price of 1020, I am going for this for sure. Lumia 925, though very well priced, lost because no extra storage capacity.

  • torcida

    Small tiny camera lens, big bump (OIS needs/eats some space)… I’m curious.

  • sbw44

    What’s the sensor size? ALso how man Haac mics does the 1020 have?

  • sbw44

    Also does WP support 60/120fps video recording?

  • Patata

    Does such a huge phone really need a nano sim? Or is it just that MS / Nokia wan’t to copy Apple that badly?

    I feel really sad that a phone with such a brilliant hardware is gonna fail coz of that crappy os

  • Caesar

    Actually I’m a bit confused about the AT&T and global variant ? Do both will have the same design, or the global will be thicker and without bump ?

    And what about the 1320 then ? Is it gonna sport a 5″ screen or is it the global version of 1520 ? Those rumors are confusing.

    • theflew

      Regardless of the confusion at least we’ll know in 7 days.

      • Caesar

        Yes indeed.

  • Shane


    Are these likely to be quite accurate (i.e. 90%+) specs, or way off? About to get a 1020 but now I’m not so sure… I don’t care about the much larger display, in fact, I’m not a fan of anything at 5.5″ or above, but everything else looks pretty good. Camera may not be as good overall, but if it’s close in most areas & better in 1-2, then that may be what tips me over. I guess I’ll just go ahead with the 1020, it’ll be many mth before it’s in Australia anyway, so I can always sell & upgrade, just a PIA!

    As much as I would like to have a bigger screen, I don’t think I am ready to downgrade the camera from 1020…

    • Shane

      For me it really depends n how much of a downgrade it is…
      The rest of the specs are considerably better (if they’re to be believed).

      • Shane

        n = on
