The purported Nokia Lumia phablet, commonly referred to as "Bandit" or "Lumia 1520," has just leaked online again, but this time from a trusted source.
Rumors, leaks and speculations regarding an upcoming phablet from Nokia have been abundant in the last few weeks, but the source of the leak is of great importance when it comes to the credibility of the rumor.
The purported Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet, previously dubbed "Bandit," has now surfaced online in a new image from none other than famous tipster @evleaks.
Most leaks and rumors from @eveaks have proved to be correct so far, which makes the tipster a credible source in such instances. The newly-leaked image from @evleaks reportedly shows Nokia's first foray into the phablet market: a super-sized Lumia smartphone, brightly-colored as expected.
The Nokia Lumia 1520 would launch with a generous 6-inch 1080p touchscreen display, making the device not only the first Windows Phone handset to sport such a large display, but also the first to offer full HD (1080p) resolution.
Nokia has been making noticeable efforts in moving toward the high-end segment of the market and this upcoming phablet seems to be the cherry on top. Nothing has been confirmed so far, but the Nokia Lumia 1520 is expected to launch as a top-end phablet with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
Moreover, the phablet is also expected to rock a high-end 20-megapixel rear camera and challenge Samsung's just-unveiled Galaxy Note 3 phablet. Windows Phone may not be as popular as Android, but the Nokia Lumia 1520 may attract plenty of phablet lovers to the platform if its rumored specifications prove to be accurate.
In terms of launch date, the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet will reportedly make its official debut on Sept. 26. Nokia is also rumored to unveil its first Windows RT tablet on that same date.
It remains to be seen whether the company will indeed introduce devices with larger displays soon, but all signs point in this direction. Nokia has yet to confirm such plans, so take all rumors with a grain of salt for now. Evleaks may have a great track record with unannounced devices, but even that is no guarantee on the accuracy of leaks.
