At this year’s Nokia World, the Finnish manufacturer presented three new Lumia models that it will be releasing out in the wild. The Lumia 1520 and 1320 are the first 6-inch Windows Phone models release by Nokia and the Lumia 2520 will be the first tablet from Nokia running Windows RT. Here’s a brief overview of the three new models.

Lumia 1520

The first 6-inch Windows Phone “phablet “comes in the typical Nokia Lumia design and will be available in a medley of assortment of colors: black, red, yellow, and white. As well, it will sport the ClearBlack display technology that will provide larger viewing angles and improve the readability when using the device in the sunlight. Furthermore, the 1520 will be equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 for protection and scratch resistance. Nokia will be putting a Snapdragon 800 processor for the first time into this new device.

The cream of the crop for the Nokia 1520 will be the Pure View camera: a 20-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization. Not only will this provide a ton of possibilities when it comes to the photos taken, but will improve the quality of images when using the zoom function. In addition, there are four microphones for improved noise reduction and to improve video conferencing on the device. The Lumia 1520 will be available for $749 US Dollars off contract.

Lumia 1320

Nokia also released another 6-inch device with the Lumia 1320, which is basically just a “mini” version of the 1520. It will feature the same screen size, scaled-down hardware, and other features similar to the 1520 at a reduced price. Trying to fit in with the crowd of other manufacturers that have released “budget” devices that are similar to their flagship models, Nokia has brought the 1320 to the tablet. One of the weirder things about the 1320 is that, in fact, the 1320 is larger in dimensions that its “big brother”. Thankfully, it will sport the same 3400 mAh battery that the 1520 will have as well. Check out the rest of the specs below in our comparative table. The Nokia Lumia 1320 will be available in orange, yellow, black, and white and will retail for $339 US dollars.

Lumia 2520

And enter into the fray Nokia’s first venture into the tablet market with the Lumia 2520. Sporting Windows RT, Nokia is hoping to boost its stylish smartphone design to a much larger device. The Nokia 2520 will be sporting LTE capability and the same ClearBlack display that is found on its smaller counterparts. Additionally, the Lumia 2520 is equipped with a nifty little feature for the people on the go: the 8000 mAh battery can be charged to 50 percent within 40 minutes of charging. The Nokia Lumia 2520 will be available in red, cyan, white, and black and retails for $499 US dollars.

While all this is fine and dandy and I'm a secret fan of Nokia, I can't help but wonder when they are going to get around to releasing a phone that has Android on it, or really, just not Windows Phone. Here's to hoping.

    Since Nokia was already bought by Microsoft, I don't suppose there will ever be a Nokia phone with Android. Maybe only if current Nokia employees create a new company to achieve that.

    what is with Nokia's obsession with 20? We have the 820, the 920 and now the 1520, 1320 and the 2520...
