For those who were interested in seeing the latest Windows Phone from Nokia known as the Bandit, they will have to wait longer.
Rumors circulated around the net on Monday that this phone will be delayed until late October due to the latest company buyout by Microsoft.
The Nokia 1520 was scheduled to be released along with the latest Nokia tablets at the Nokia event in New York. But, the phone delay has come as a result of the company taking a second look at the hardware and pricing for it, and a possible new date of October 2013 to be announced.
Rumored 1520 Specs
The Nokia 1520 is the biggest Windows Phone ever according to the latest specs The phone is expected to have a 6-inch screen, a 1080p screen, 2GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 800 processor, a huge 32GB storage capability, and a SD slot for those looking to expand the phone further.
With all the publicity surrounding the Microsoft and Nokia purchase, the company more than likely wants to slowly introduce mutual products until the hurdles are out of the purchase. The phone sounds like it is in production and they might be wanting to roll the unit in masses at the retail level around the world as well. Either way, Microsoft will certainly make Windows Phone fans happy with this phone, but it may have to wait until late October 2013 to be in the hands of many.
Lumia 1520 Vs Note 3
The battle of large screen phones is also a direct aim at Samsung and the Note 3 which is expected to be released in October. That phone at 5.7″ is clearly aimed at those who want a huge phone and screen and who want more than just a standard phone. The Lumia 1520 will keep those Microsoft fans who desire a huge screen and a fast processor with lots of storage very happy.
The Lumia 1520 has been rumored a lot, but is more rumors than anything. We have specs, but a delayed release date. This phone should be announced last next month, but Microsoft will need to have those units ready for the holiday season to matter at the cash register.
