Nokia’s Lumia 2520 tablet isn’t the only thing to spring forth from the company’s Abu Dhabi event which took place earlier today. Two new Lumia handsets, the Lumia 1520 and the Lumia 1320, are also going to be following the Lumia 2520’s launch sequence by appearing in the States and China before the end of the year.
The Lumia 1520 is a smartphone in every sense of the word, sporting the same processor as LG’s G2 and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3. That’d be the Snapdragon 800, running at 2.26GHz, and Nokia have opted to pair it with a 6-inch 1080p display. 2GB of RAM, a 3,400mAh battery and a 20 megapixel PureView camera round out the hardware specs and Nokia have included wireless charging LTE for the device to boot.
Nokia’s Lumia 1320, on the other hand, is a little lower down on the specification scale. The 1320 features roughly half the specs of the 1520, namely a Snapdragon 400 CPU and 1GB of system memory with the camera taking the largest knock, dropping from 20MP to a more conventional 5 megapixels. The 1320 will also feature a 720p display instead of a 1080p screen.
Both handsets will be running Windows Phone 8 and the 1520 is set to be priced at $749 (R7,400, more or less) while the 1320 will cost $339 (R3,350). Halve the specs, halve the price it seems. South African launch and pricing details are not yet available but Stuff will update once that information is known.
