Yesterday, Microsoft accidentally spilled the beans about the launch of Nokia Lumia 1520. The handset’s pre-orders went live on the Microsoft Store showing a release date of November 15th, but it seems it was incorrect. After it was spotted by the entire blogosphere, Microsoft pulled the handset from the online store. A new report suggests that the release has been pushed back by a week, and the most powerful Windows Phone phablet will now see the daylight on November 22nd.
The folks at WPCentral got hold of an inventory screenshot that shows both the Lumia 1520 and Nokia Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet with an expected launch date of Friday, November 22nd. Verizon Lumia 2520 will come in both black and red with 32GB storage option and LTE connectivity while the folks at AT&T will sell the tablet in black with 32GB storage and LTE.
Nokia Lumia 2520 Windows RT 8.1 tablet comes with a 10.1-inch display with 1080p resolution, 2GB RAM, Snapdragon 800 chipset, 32GB storage with memory card support, 6.7MP camera and a massive 8,000 mAh battery.
Nokia Lumia 1520 comes with a massive 6-inch full HD display boasting a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset with 2GB RAM, 32GB storage (AT&T’s version is rumored to come with 16GB) with a microSD card support, an impressive 20MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics and run Windows Phone 8 Update 3 out of the box.
AT&T will launch the Lumia 1520 in all four colors and will be priced at $199.99 with a two-year agreement with AT&T. The off-contract price was listed as $549 on the Microsoft Store’s listing of Nokia Lumia 1520.
