Nokia Lumia 1520 Is Now FCC Approved

Finnish mobile phone maker, Nokia, is gearing up to launch its first ever phablet, a large screen Lumia powered by Windows Phone 8. Rumors suggest that the device will his store shelves as the Lumia 1520.

No idea when it will hit the store shelves, but the smartphone has emerged over at the FCC.

The smartphone is expected to arrive with a 6-inch touchscreen display, and while we have heard quite a bit of gossip on the specifications, they are still only supposition for the time being, until Nokia officially launches the device and confirms the hardware.

October 22 is supposedly the date when the device will go official — the company has already confirmed that its Nokia World Event will be held in Abu Dhabi on this date.

At the FCC, however, the handset is listed in two different flavors.

One comes with the model number RM-938 and the other goes by RM-940. According to this report, the only difference between both variations is the presence of built-in wireless charging in the latter. Both handsets are set to launch with support for LTE bands 2, 4, 5 and 17.

And this means they will very likely arrive on shelves over at AT&T.

Along with these details, the FCC listing also reveals the dimensions of the Lumia 1520. It is said to be 81mm wide and 152mm tall, with no details of how thick it is. You do some math, and the screen size actually comes down to be lower than the reported 6 inches.

But we should have the full details as we approach the official unveiling later this month. Stay tuned.

    I can no longer visit this site because of that obnoxious intrusive floating ad hawking that book. It popped up 3 times while reading this article, and once when I started typing this comment. This is really to bad because I liked reading articles on this site.
