Notorious phone leaker, @evleaks claims that Nokia's alleged Bandit phablet will be dubbed as the Nokia Lumia 1520. In a tweet he says, "Nokia Bandit = Lumia 1520". Unfortunately, the serial leaker has not revealed any other details about the alleged Nokia phablet.
Nokia's current flagship smartphone is the Lumia 1020 which features a 41-megapixel camera, while the company's flagship smartphone in 2012 was the Nokia Lumia 920 that introduced PureView technology on a Lumia device (at least partially).
Earlier, The Verge claimed that the Finnish handset manufacturer was currently testing a 6-inch device running an updated version of Windows Phone 8 OS. The site further claimed that the company had code-named the device as 'Bandit' and was expected to include a full-HD (1080p) display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor. The report had also noted that the alleged Nokia phablet would ship with a 20-megapixel rear camera and may borrow the rear panel features of the Nokia Lumia 925 to accommodate the camera.
However, the device may not be unveiled before Microsoft rolls out the GDR3 update to existing Windows Phone devices. Microsoft is reportedly testing the GDR3 software update for Windows Phone 8.
Previously, a Chinese technology publication published an image of the alleged front panel of the first Nokia Lumia phablet on its Weibo account.
