Nokia Lumia 1520 and 1320, the 6-inch giant Window Phones

Nokia has officially announced its latest smart phone and the first phablet, the Lumia 1520. The new Lumia 1520 is announced along with its low-end counterpart, the Lumia 1320 features a massive 6-inch display, making it the largest Windows Phone ever released. The 1520 is also the first Windows Phone with a 1080p screen and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 processor.

Lumia 1520 is a huge piece of hardware and if you thought the 4.5-inch display on Nokia’s previous range of Lumia devices was large, then the 1520 dwarves it in comparison. Similar to the existing Lumia range, the Lumia 1520 includes a polycarbonate body and is available in red, yellow, black, or white.

While the 1520 is 3.36 inches wide, 6.4 inches tall, and weighs 7.37 ounces, despite being only 0.34 inches thick, is strictly for a 2 hand use mainly because of it’s build. The new LCD display is bright and vibrant and has great viewing angles and deep blacks.

Lumia 1520 has got quad-core, 2.26GHz processor and 2GB of RAM which houses a 3,400mAh battery, built-in wireless charging, and support for LTE networks. Nokia is using a new, lower-resolution version of its 41-megapixel PureView sensor with 20 megapixels. It has optical image stabilization and the PureView capabilities of zooming in after you take a picture without a loss of quality. The PureView zoom level is limited to 2x on the 1520, as opposed to the 3x zoom on the 41-megapixel Lumia 1020. Nokia also revealed that the long awaited official Instagram app will be available for Windows Phone in the coming weeks.

The Lumia 1320 on the other hand is another big device from Nokia, but it's a lower-end device for an entry level buyer. It drops the 1080p display for a 720p panel, steps down to a dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of RAM, and has a standard 5-megapixel camera.

Both the Lumia 1520 and 1320 run the latest version of Windows Phone 8, which enables the larger, higher-resolution display and new quad-core processor found in the 1520. While the 1520 will be available in black, red, yellow, and white in the US, UK, France, Germany, China, Hong Kong, and Singapore, while the 1320 will be in orange, yellow, black, and white in China and Vietnam at first. Both the phones are expected to be available before the end of the year.

The price for the Lumia 1520 will be around $749 and the Lumia 1320 will be $339.
