Leaked Nokia Lumia 1520 pics suggest a supersized, 1080p Windows phone coming soon

Does the world want or need a six-inch Windows phone? Nokia is betting on yes.

If the leaks from this morning are to be believed, the world finally be closer to getting the supersized Windows Phone it didn't even know it wanted.

The oft-reliable @evleaks, posted an image of what it claims to be the Nokia Lumia 1520, a large-display'd Windows phone, which will be released before the end of 2013.

The new phone is rumored to be the not-so-secret Nokia Bandit, the codename for a supersized (six-inchish) Windows phone. If the rumored (and decidedly unofficial) specs prove true, the 1520 would probably compete directly with the just unveiled 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3.

Whatever the new device is, it was certainly already in the pipeline long before Microsoft's recent acquisition of Nokia. While the next year will reveal what specific plans Microsoft has in place for its new hardware wing, Nokia's recent Lumia strategy has bet big on bleeding-edge camera specs, such as the Lumina 1020's 41 megapixel camera. It would then stand to reason to expect some top-shelf camera specs from the 1520, which will find itself competing against the Note 3's not-at-all shabby 13 megapixel camera that boasts the currently pointless, but still impressive ability to capture UltraHD 4K video.

The Verge has reported specs culled from unnamed sources that the new six-inch phone will boast at least a 20 megapixel camera, a 1080p screen (a new and as-yet-unannounced resolution for Windows Phones), and Qualcomm quad-core Snapdragon processor.

Windows Phone. Still hangin' in there.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
