Nokia Reportedly Preparing The Lumia 1520v, A Mini Version Of Its Phablet

What do you call a mini phablet? Wait, don’t answer that! Nokia it seems is preparing something special for those of you that did not sign up for the large screen Lumia 1520 because of its ridiculous size.

And I mean ridiculous size in a good way here — many people prefer large 6-inch or more screens.

But if you are not one of them, then you may be interested in what is cooking up over in Finland. Nokia is apparently ready to bring the Lumia 1520 to the midrange market by launching a smaller version of it, and also doing away with some of its more costly features.

Long story short, the phablet is doing rather well in many markets around the world.

And now Nokia wants to make it even more affordable. As WMPowerUser reports, the company is working on a smaller version of the Nokia Lumia 1520, one that has been recently spotted in China as the Lumia 1520v.

This upcoming handset will come with a 4.3-inch AMOLED screen with support for a full HD (1080p) capacitive touchscreen. This is in contrast to the huge 6-inch screen on the vanilla Lumia 1520.

Most of the other features will remain the same, though some changes are to be expected.

In terms of specs, however, you can expect the Lumia 1520v to pack in 2GB of RAM, 32GB internal memory, a 14 megapixel PureView camera along with support for wireless charging. It will not come with a microSD card, unfortunately, so there you go.

Of course, this is an unofficial report for now, but you might be able to purchase the mini version of the Lumia 1520 sometimes after April — soon after Microsoft officially unveils Windows Phone 8.1.
