Leaked Bandit screen shot
Leaked image shows extra columns of tiles on the home screen
A leaked image has turned up on Twitter (courtesy of evleaks) that claims to be a screenshot from the big-screen
smartphone. The screenshot shows a reworked on screen for Windows Phone specifically designed for larger screen devices – in this case, 1080p. The Nokia Bandit is supposed to have a six-inch screen and the expanded Start Screen shows two extra columns for titles.
Previously leaked details suggest that Nokia's new phone could be called the Lumia 1520 when it's officially launched.
Current Windows Phone devices only have enough space for four columns of the smallest tiles. The Starts screen on the 1520 shows six total columns of small files. Other rumored specifications for the Nokia smartphone include a QUALCOMM 800 Snapdragon processor, full HD resolution display, and a 20-megapixel rear camera.
The phone is expected to launch a Nokia press conference to be held in New York on September 26.
This has been a big week for Microsoft and Nokia with Microsoft announcing that it is
purchasing Nokia's hardware division and other assets for over $7 billion

"Not to call you out here, but could you explain why you think WP8 looks like it's from the 1990's?"
It's the flat UI. Looks like Windows 3.1 to me. I like the tiles OK, just the color scheme is old. It's kind of like a Dodge charger to me. New, but still old.
Not doing it for 15+ years and going back to it doesn't make it new, but that is just a matter of taste. I prefer the Aero Win7 look to the flat Win8 look as well.
