Yap, am surprised how they packed the built-in wireless charging into that slim frame, considering that was supposedly what made the 920 bulky?
I guess since the phone is much bigger, they were able to distribute the components more

LCD panel The 920 requires another frame inside the phone to support that, instead of having the screen and glass together.

This is actually the best phablet I've seen with a good camera. Check out HTC One Max (No OIS, 4MP), Sony Xperia Z Ultra (No OIS, ridiculously small sensor, 8MP yet overcompressed, too noisy, & too slow), Note III (still average).

There seems to be a trend of OEMs cutting down on camera with it comes to big screen.

Nokia should advertise this hard, and compare against the horrible quality of other phablets as a selling point.

yeah knw what you mean.. If the 1020 gets the third row of live tiles, it'd be perfect!

1520 looks great, can't wait to see the actual product in hand.
Yeah I hope 1020 gets it! Saw a post by joe belfiore saying that it's not the screen resolution that allows for third row of tiles but the screen size that matters. Let's hope nokia feels that 4.5 inches is enough to convince them to allow 3 rows or tiles on our 1020

Just afraid that having the 3rd column will results in much smaller tiles and difficult to tap onto. Hope that it will be an option for individual to turn on / off with the 3rd column though.

L1520 look impressive, if it packed with L1020's 41mp camera inside, I will buy it.

Too bad, will skip it & will still go for L1020 instead.

sorry ah, concentrating on getting Spiral for my Marvel's Avengers Alliance game ... what did i miss?

Anyway, as said two days ago, I LOVE STEPHEN ELOP for announcing that Singapore would be one of the FIRST countries to get the Lumia 1520.

I am dying to lay my hands on this 6" Beast ...
time to use my Royal Kaypohness to find out the exact date this beast is launching then prepare to QUEUE for it!

I am currently loving my 1020, and getting a lot of comments on FB, twitter etc about the quality of the photos... but just a little pissed at having to use a wireless charging case. But then, I like the camera grip so I guess its a trade off (though the camera grip could do with more battery life).

So... do I also get the 1520? Yeah of course, I've owned all the Lumina's so far, and I really want to see what the 1520 can do with its upgraded specs over the 1020. And maybe the 20Mp camera is enough, who knows?

Just not sure about 6" in my pocket, guess time will tell...

I'm not really excited about the 1520 since I already have the 1020, so I'm just waiting for this to become available here.

Definitely. 1520 uses Qi standard for the wireless charging too. So existing plates and that will work.

The 1520 & 1320 should be very popular. My guess is even more popular than the 1020. Certain markets like Taiwan and Singapore love big screens.

I think MS made the right decision in not allowing 3 columns on <5" devices.

For me, this's WAY TOO BIG! But anything that increase WP marketshare is great!

6" just too big especially guys who usually put it inside the pants pocket.

Girls might be confused especially inside a pub at night under dimmed lighting

Nokia should have made 1320 a 5.5" so that customers have more choices!

If the 1320 is a 5.5" plus 1080p display. I will jump for it as my very first Lumia device!

Bad decision by Nokia! Very bad!

Why leh? 5.5" like the Note 2 already cannot put in pocket. I think the GS4 is more or less the biggest a guy's jeans can accommodate. Anyway the 1520 is meant to compete with all the Ultra-size phablets launched this year.
