Earlier this week, prolific tech leaker Evleaks announced to the world that the Nokia Lumia 1520 would launch on Sept. 26. Now, however, WPCentral is reporting that although Nokia will announce its rumored phablet this month, the Lumia 1520’s release date won’t actually arrive until early Nov. when it launches on AT&T. The launch is likely tied to Microsoft’s GDR3 update to Windows Phone 8, which will allow the operating system to run on a larger display with a 1080p resolution.
WPCentral also claims to have learned that the Lumia 1520 will sport a massive 3,400mAh battery, actually giving it a slight edge over Samsung’s newly announced Galaxy Note 3, which sports a 3,200mAh battery. The device will also reportedly feature four separate microphones for high quality audio recording. Nokia’s upcoming smartphone is also rumored to ship with a 6-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 800 processor, a 20-megapixel PureView camera, and 32GB of storage with a microSD card slot for adding additional memory.
Nokia hasn’t made much of an effort in the recent past to keep its upcoming products a secret, and the Lumia 1520 is no exception. We’ve already seen a a huge gallery of photos for the phablet, which has a similar design to the Lumia 1020 but without the camera bump. The Finnish company is also allegedly prepping its first Windows RT tablet, which is currently codenamed Sirius.
