Nokia Bandit Lumia 1520 rumor

A Verge forum member has published a photo of what is rumored to be the Nokia Lumia 1520, a massive device with a 6-inch, 1080p display. While we're unable able to fully confirm the image, it does appear to be authentic based on its consistency with previous leaks.

Earlier this month, sources familiar with Nokia's plans told The Verge that AT&T was testing a giant-screened phone going by the codename of "Bandit" with the same sized touchscreen as what is shown in the photo. We also learned then that Nokia's 6-inch Lumia would use Qualcomm's Snapdragon quad-core processor and be the first of many Windows Phones to incorporate a full-HD screen. A photo of what is rumored to be display glass for Evidently Nokia can't keep a secret a giant Nokia phone leaked in July. And the Twitter account Evleaks revealed this week that the Bandit would be sold under the Lumia 1520 name. On Wednesday, Windows Phone Central also reported that AT&T and other carriers are looking to start selling the Galaxy Note rival by November.

Nokia's roadmap is coming in to clearer view thanks to other leaks — which have been quite common for the company. A couple weeks ago, photos of a Nokia Windows 8 tablet leaked. We also have seen details about a 10.1-inch Windows RT tablet that Nokia is planning, which would feature a 1080p display and a price in the same range as Apple's iPad.
