Nokia World event to kick-off at Abu Dhabi on October 22

The press shots of the rumoured Nokia Lumia 1520 (aka Bandit) phablet surfaced online, just weeks ahead of the the company's Nokia World Event in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Prolific Twitter spy, @evleaks, has posted a press image of a red hued Lumia 1520. The image is consistent with the earlier photos of the Nokia phablet which have been leaked in the past few months. The snapshot shows the front-side of Lumia 1520's monster screen featuring multiple (five) tile icons placed side-by-side in a single row. [To view the Lumia 1520 image, click here]
