Nokia’s rumored Windows Phone phablet made another appearance today, popping up on The Verge forums in a new photo. The device, which was initially called the “Bandit,” but is now being referred to as the Lumia 1520, appears fully assembled and functioning.

Based on multiple reports, the Lumia 1520 is expected to sport a massive 6-inch 1080p display and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The Windows Phone 8 handset will allegedly launch this Nov. on AT&T, though not exclusively. That means Microsoft will need to release the GDR3 update for its mobile OS sometime this fall, since the current software doesn’t support any of these rumored specs.

Nokia appears set to release a few new devices this fall as it continues to expand its line of Windows 8 devices, with the Lumia 1520 coming later this year and a Windows RT 10.1 tablet expected to launch next month.
