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.

It really has nothing to do with needing excuses. I do feel that (like BB) you cannot enter a market with very entrenched, fairly well liked encumbents and bring specs that are 1-2 years old compared to the competition. When you are trying to gain marketshare, you need a differentiator.

I personally do not likes the looks of Win Phone at all (even though it still looks better than IOS). I am (at least in the past) a big microsoft supporter, and have win8 on one of my computers at home (have since it was released) and still hate the look of the tiles, and that everything advanced is much more difficult to get to.

The biggest issue for me is I like choices, I do not want a company to tell me what I can do, what I can install (or not) and lock me into one infrastrucure. With Android I like that I can install custom roms and still have full support. While I really dont use other app stores (since I think Google Play is so good), I love that I have the option to. I think choice is good for the consumer. If I wanted a walled garden I would choose the one that has the best library (IOS) since I would not have a choice of other app stores.

If MS had not tried to copy Apple with their walled garden approach, this phone would have been what made me really think about switching, as it seems like a beast and should still be relevent in 2 + years. I dont need to have the latest greatest all the time, but do want something that will last and still work the entire time I have it.
