Nokia Leaks Details of Its First Oversized Lumia Handset

By Jamie Condliffe on at

With Windows Phone 8 now geared up for larger displays, you can expect to start seeing correspondingly large handsets. Like, for instance, the much-rumoured Lumia 1520—which Nokia has now leaked details of.

The company has prematurely posted details of its first larger Windows phone on its official Chinese Tmall store. There are no images, but there are specs: it looks like the handset will sport a 6-inch 1080p display, a 20-megapixel PureView camera and be powered by a Snapdragon 800 CPU. The store claims it would weigh in at somewhere around $800 (£495 if directly converted and ignoring any added taxes).

The leak could be a genuine mistake ahead of Nokia World later this week. Given we've been expecting a larger phone from Nokia some time this month we might just see it officially before the week is out. Possibly. Maybe. [Tmall via Engadget]
