Design & Hardware

The new Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet launches Windows Phone 8 into the mixture of phone and tablet. With a 6-inch full HD display, Nokia Lumia 1520 offers  the largest screen on any Nokia Lumia or Windows Phone so far. The most amazing thing about Nokia Lumia 1520 is that this is the Nokia phone to support 1080p HD resolution. It has a super fast quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and nano-sim functionality.
