Nokia’s launching the first Windows Phone devices sporting large 6 inch displays.
The Nokia Lumia 1520 is a high-end phone with a full HD display, a 20MP camera, and a premium price tag of $749 before subsidies. But if size is more important to you than the other specs, Nokia is also offering the Lumia 1320 with a 720p screen, a 5MP camera, a slower processor, and an unsubsidized price of $339.
The Lumia 1520 features a 6 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage, plus a microSD card slot.
In other words, it’s kind of like a smaller version of the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet, if the tablet ran Windows Phone software instead of Windows RT.
The phone also has a better camera, with a 20MP PureView camera featuring ZEISS optics, 2x lossless zoom, and even support for shooting full HD video with optical image stabilization. There’s also a 1.2MP front-facing wide-angle camera.
Nokia’s new handset also features four microphones for Nokia Rich Recording, which lets you capture stereo audio whether you’re holding the phone in landscape or portrait mode.
The phone has a 3400mAh battery, support for wireless charging, and it’ll be availabel in black, white, red, or yellow colors before the end of 2013.
Like the idea of a big phone, but don’t like the high price tag of the Lumia 1520? Nokia also offers a model for about half the price.
The Lumia 1320 has a 6 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel display. a 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 dual-core processor, a 5MP rear camera and 0.3MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage, plus a microSD card slot.
This model has a 3400mAh battery, but no wireless charging, and it has 1 mic instead of 4.
The Lumia 1320 will be available in black, white, yellow, or orange, and it’s expected to sell for $339 before taxes and subsidies.
