The mammoth Nokia phablet is backed by the 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 series quad-core CPU, Adreno 330 graphics engine with 2GB RAM, sumptuous enough for multi-tasking and play power-intensive games with less drag. It also comes with 32GB inbuilt storage (expandable up 64GB) and a high-capacity 3400 mAh battery, which can run the phone for 32 days under standby mode.

Like all high-end Nokia smartphones, Lumia 1520 too comes loaded with top-of-the-line camera specifications. It houses a feature-rich 20.0-megapixel PureView main camera boasting of LED flash, 6-lens element Carl Zeiss optics, OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) sensors, BSI (Backside-illuminated image) sensor, high-resolution (loss-less) 2x zoom and on the front side, it flaunts a 1.2-megapixel wide angle HD snapper.

According to reports, the new phablet is priced at ₹46,999 and will be available in bright red, yellow black and white colour variants starting from Monday.
