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.

I am all excited about a phablet windows phone... but there are a few issues to contend with:
1) 6" with that kind of bezel is rather huge. No issue with the screen size alone, but that bezel is going to be the breaking point on size for many people (possibly myself included). Something in the 5-5.5" range would gather a bigger following, but I understand that a 6" device will get more press.
2) The thing that makes phablets like the Galaxy Note series so amazingly useful is that they come with a custom UI and UX which brings a lot of non-standard features to the device. Simply having a large Windows Phone is going to bring very few advantages over the smaller cousins of this device like the 940 (or whatever the next gen 920 will be) which will likely also have a quad core CPU, bigger camera, bigger GPU, and ram but in a much more pocket-friendly size.
Outside of that I am looking forward to this device. My 920 can almost replace my laptop already. Something with a larger screen and a few more features may help my poor laptop the rest of it's way into retirement.
