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.

Not really true. Windows RT is just Win8 compiled on ARM. For obvious reasons it cannot run x86 apps, and for security reasons it cant run unsigned code. Otherwise identical. As of Windows Phone 8, it also shares the same NT kernel as Windows 8, and is very similar in nature to Windows RT, just with a slightly different "start screen" and no desktop. Once WinPhone Blue ships I bet you'll also start seeing the ability to write once and ship to all three platforms via the store once they unify a few more components of the OS like the compositor.

WP would have all kinds of stuff stripped out of it from full blown windows, no?

I'm sure there are things stripped out, but it's the full NT kernel and functionality. Full DX11 API. Same graphics kernel, same drivers, etc. Today's tablets have the same hardware as phones do and they run just fine, so why wouldn't a full copy of windows work?

In fact I recall hearing a while back of someone who got Win8 up and running on an old WinMo 6.5 phone which had a compatible ARM chip. It was a bit sluggish, but it was also super old.
