More Nokia Lumia 1520 details surface, AT&T launch expected early November

We’ve said this time and again – The Lumia 1520 is probably going to be amongst the last smartphones we see from Nokia as it plans to sell off its device business to Microsoft at the start of next year. The device will be the first phablet in the Lumia lineup, but not the only one as the company is rumored to be working on a 5.2-inch Lumia 825 handset for the mid-range segment.

We’ve seen the Nokia Lumia 1520 leak many times now, in press images and in the wild. A good deal of details has been disclosed as well, and new rumors have even cropped up. Recently, famous leaker @evleaks tweeted that the device will be unveiled on September 26, but WPCentral notes that the launch date may change. The website holds the GDR3 update responsible for the possible delay, stating that it hasn’t been finalized as yet and GDR2 is still to roll out to every handset. If Nokia does show off the smartphone this month, it most likely won’t launch until early November. So far, only AT&T has been listed as a candidate for offering the phone in the US.

The website has also managed to find out that the smartphone will have a 3400mAh battery which is the largest to be seen in the Lumia range.
