Nokia Lumia 1520V mini surfaces with 4.3 inch 531ppi display
Nokia launched the Lumia 1520 back in November when it became the company's first phablet and it's since proved hugely popular. Therefore its no surprise to learn that Nokia is planning a mini version of the Lumia 1520.
The news broke via Digitimes in China, who we have known for many years and who more often than not have been a very reliable source of leaks. The smaller version of the 1520 has been identified as the Lumia 1520V (mini version) and can be seen in the photo above.
The specification for the Lumia 1520V is reported to include a 4.3 inch HD display screen with a 1080p resolution which equates to a whopping 531ppi.
The processing power comes via its Snapdragon 800 processor whilst the memory includes 2GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board memory. The battery weighs in at 3000mAh and it'll be equipped with wireless charging support, while the operating system listed was Windows Phone 8.1
Some people found the 6 inch phablet far too large for them so the smaller Lumia 1520V would be a welcome addition to the portfolio. This was enforced by our reviewer when we carried out our Nokia Lumia 1520 review when he commented ”It’s a fabulously designed device, although it is too big for most pockets.”
There is an outside chance of us seeing the Lumia 1520V at Mobile World Congress next month or at least an announcement that its on its way. 3G will ensure we track its development and post more as soon as we learn more.
