While Nokia is preparing to release a Lumia 525 at the very low end focused on music, the company is also readying a large-screen handset in the same budget category. Twitter account Evleaks first published the "Batman" codename, and sources familiar with Nokia's plans have revealed to The Verge that a handset will fit into Nokia's portfolio of devices just above the existing Lumia 625. Nokia picked a 4.7-inch display for the 625, and we're told that the company will ship Batman with a large-screen too.

We understand that the handset is designed as the top low-end Windows Phone, but the specs will be similar to the existing Lumia 625. Nokia is said to be including a 5-megapixel rear camera on the Batman and a forward-facing VGA camera. Although it's a low-end device, Nokia is planning to ship it with its new Nokia Camera app that combines the Pro and Smart Cam features of its existing apps. The Batman will likely debut later this year and it joins other devices including the 6-inch Lumia 1520 and a 5-inch Lumia 929. Nokia's Lumia 1520 and Lumia 929 devices will sit alongside the Lumia 1020 as the high-end Windows Phones for this holiday season.
