Leaked Bandit screen shot  (Source: evleaks)
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 Nokia “Bandit” 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.

Still no matter how you customize it, it's still an ugly mess.

Agree to disagree. I find the layout of the WP start screen to be superior than any of the "ugly mess" I've seen on Android and iOS.

And yeah no offense, but that's not a very effective comeback when like 95% of the smartphone-buying public hasn't tried it either.

It just goes to show that people like you are dissing the platform and spreading false information that ordinary people see which turns them away from trying it, thinking that it sucks without ever even seeing it in real-world use. Maybe you should refrain from commenting on the usefulness of a product before you use it. (Your opinion on a WP8+ device holds no merit if the last one you tried was WP 7.0)

Oh come on, that is so low.

If that was true I would own an iPhone right now, because when I first tried Android all anyone ever talked about was how much it "sucked".

I would also probably own Bose speakers *shudder*...

You might be shocked about how easily ordinary non tech-savvy people are influenced by what people like us say. Even a slight inaccuracy due to not being up to date with what is offered by a platform is taken completely 100% to truth. I know some people who are still convinced that Windows 8 doesn't even have a desktop.

Also maybe my experience was a bit different, but when Android first came out all I heard about was how it looks so cool and new on the new Droid.
