Are you ready to wrap your hands around the gorgeous Nokia Lumia 1520?
We unveiled the Nokia Lumia 1520, our first large screen smartphone at Nokia World in Abu Dhabi last month. And today, sales of this stunning device begin in France, with sales in Hong Kong, Italy, Russia, and the United States kicking off later this week.
The Nokia Lumia 1520 features a vivid 6-inch, 1080p full HD ClearBlack screen, and is the first Nokia smartphone with “Assertive Display” technology. With three columns for Live tiles on your Start screen, you will truly be able see and do more on the device.
Additionally, you will enjoy a 20-megapixel PureView camera with optical image stabilization, enhanced sensor technology, oversampling and outstanding zoom capabilities. Connect to the Windows Phone Store, and you can quickly add both the Nokia Camera app, and the new Nokia Storyteller app (available in beta) to relive your memories and share better stories with your friends and family.
Your videos will be enhanced with the four directional stereo microphones that are built in to the Lumia 1520 – another Nokia first, and actually an industry first, too. And of course, you can use the new Vine app, too.
You can easily expand the built-in memory of the Lumia 1520 by adding a microSD card, boosting your storage capability big time. You will have plenty of room for all of your videos, images and other memories that you capture on your new device. For best experience, we recommend using a new and fast microSD card.
And, let’s not forget that the Lumia 1520 comes with Microsoft Office built in, so you have the flexibility to work when you need to; and it includes a massive battery with integrated wireless charging (Qi compatible). This powerful combination means you can manage to easily log a whole day of work and enjoy entertainment like movies and games without worrying about finding a place to charge up.
