The Nokia Lumia 1520

Nokia’s first-ever phablet-sized Lumia is now available to Irish customers through Vodafone Ireland. With a 6-inch display, the Lumia 1520 allows more room for productivity, with the added benefits of Nokia’s PureView camera technology.

The enlarged display on the Lumia 1520 makes room for a third column of full-size tiles on the home screen, while also making it easier for power users to create, review and edit Microsoft Office documents on the fly.

The display is rich 1080p full-HD and features the high standard of outdoor readability we’ve come to expect from this range.

The Windows Phone 8 device houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage and a 3,400mAh battery in a polycarbonate monobody measuring less than 9mm thick.

Revealed in October last year, the Lumia 1520 continues Nokia’s tradition of high-end phones with high-spec cameras. The 20MP PureView camera on the 1520 features Zeiss optics, optical image stabilisation and oversampling and lossless zoom technology similar to the photographer’s favourite, the Lumia 1020.

There’s a dedicated shutter button for all your point-and-shoot needs and, in this device, Nokia has combined its picture-perfect Pro Camera and multifunctional Smart Camera apps into one, Nokia Camera, so you can access manual controls and take 10 5MP photos at once in the convenience of a single app.

The 1520 also comes with Nokia Storyteller, which lets users view photos by timeline, favourites or by location on an interactive map that also includes points of interest, reviews and contact details. For HD video with audio to match, the 1520 also features Nokia Rich Recording, which captures sound using four built-in microphones.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 is available now in black exclusively from Vodafone Ireland, from free for bill-pay customers.
