Evleaks once again gets the scoop on an unannounced smartphone

Earlier this week, a screenshot of the long rumored 6" Nokia Lumia 1520 smartphone was leaked. The image showed the expanded Windows Phone 8 UI thanks to the extra screen real estate and increased resolution (1080p display).
 
Today, evleaks posted press shots of the Lumia 1520 showing it from the front and back. The shots also confirm the revised UI.

When the Lumia 1520 launches later this month, it is expected to feature a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and a 20MP rear-facing camera.

Nope, I still say the biggest issue for most people is the butt ugly UI.

On a more personal level, I have reservations about any associations with Micro$ith.

I just hope its $600 or less. I switched to T-Mobile and bought a 521 to try for awhile. I like the OS so far, not missing Android, but I want better hardware. This could work.

But if its $700 and a Nexus 5 is $350, I am buying the Nexus 5.

Yeah, I think I'm going to do this. Nokia 521 for $130 no contract, and then $30 a month for unlimited data and 100 min talk time. Just use skype to talk to people you know, and use the 100 min for everything else. My last 2 years on verizon has cost me $2420, I'm starting to think its not worth it.

Yeah I was on Verizon too. $87 a month for 24 months, now I am paying $35.

I could be wrong but I don't think T-Mobile has true unlimited data like Sprint does. Once you hit a cap, they throttle you. Skypeing all the time will make you hit that cap pretty quick.

Depends on the plan. They throttle the plans with a listed data number.

A nexus 5 is going to be $350 no contract, is it going to be on Tmobile?

It has the LTE capability for it according to the Anandtech piece. No reason it shouldn't work on T-Mobile. Worse case scenario you might have to buy it off Google Play and spend the $10 for a T-Mobile sim.

So you have no MS products of any kind, nor work for a company that uses MS products of any kind?

God help me, I'm agreeing with Nortel lol.

Yes you should be worried.

Yeah, similar mindset here.

For me it's also another thing: Microsoft dominates the OS/Office-arena and they've been doing very well in the last generation of gaming consoles. I don't want them bullying their way into the mobile space.

I don't like how these Megacorps spread like cancer.
Samsung is the worst, give it another two years and every electronic consumer device will be made by them or have at least 90% of parts from them.

I had so rooted for BlackBerry to make a comeback, but I guess when you race against these giants, one missed step is all it takes - you'll never catch up again.

What are you talking about? Samsung was a nobody in the mobile world not that long ago. The only reason they are popular now is because they make good phones. Are you seriously going to cry about a company doing good?

I'd personally rather be on Microsoft software than that advertising Google junk anyday. I was really waiting for a high end Windows Phone and I think I found it. I'm looking to go all in on Windows everything from tablet to phone.

Nortel, it is no longer 1995. I would wager a bet that you've never used Windows Phone other than a 2 minute demonstration at a store (I bet even that's pushing it).

I say this because using Windows Phone is not a "live with" platform. It is one of the most original and one of the best products they've ever released. It is a pleasure to use.

Now, having blind hatred towards Microsoft, you're not impartial enough to know that. Your bias holds you down and gives you lack of credibility for the platform as it's more than likely you've never used it.

I bet you're the type of person who goes out of their way to make sure everyone in your social circle doesn't use Microsoft products. What a sad life you must lead.

Unfortunately that's not saying a whole lot.

Because Apple is so much less "evil".

They are, they just saved me from buying books off Amazon for $10 instead of spending $15!

SuperJobs to the rescue!

LOL. You should be thankful they didn't raise it to $20
