Has the first photo of the 6-inch Nokia Lumia 1520 been leaked?

The rumors about Nokia launching a 6-inch Windows Phone 8 smartphone sometime in September have been gaining steam in the past few days, including a new report that the official name for the device will be the Lumia 1520. Now the first image of what the phone may look like has allegedly been leaked on a website.

The site is WPCentral, which got the image from an unnamed tipster. The photo shows the rumored Lumia 1520 next to the latest Nokia smartphone, the Lumia 1020, and as you can see the screen on the 1020 is dwarfed by the huge display on the rumored 1520.

The image also shows what looks like an optional wrap around cover for the Lumia 1520 to cover its huge display. Otherwise, the phone, at least on the surface, appears to share the same kind of design for its case as its smaller Lumia brethren.

As we have reported before, the hardware specs on the rumored Lumia 1520 are supposed to include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, support for a 1080p resolution display, and a 20 megapixel PureView rear camera. Nokia is expected to officially announce the phone, along with a possible Windows RT tablet, at a press event in New York City on September 26th.

Anyone else notice it's got the extra column of medium tiles that's been rumoured for high res GDR3 devices?

It looks a little tall for its width. Sort of like my iPhone 5. They should make it a little wider. I was hoping this would be the phone to get me back in the Windows club.

I personally prefer to 'taller' big phones, easier to hold and reach around while still getting the benefits of more content on your screen

it could surely benefit from a few more default tiles - it looks 50% bottom bezel!

Hopefully Samsung will produce a Note-like device which will be sold at 50% original RRP within 6 months. Ativ Note FTW!

I'll need to get a Bluetooth headset if I buy this! Seriously though... Im torn between this or getting Sirius and keeping my Lumia 900 a bit longer.

I really want this! I'm afraid it might be a little on the big side though and fear a 5.5" might be out shortly there after? Any rumours on that yet? Using an iPhone 4s atm and need to swap it out ASAP!

If thats real,do want. I'm pretty sure I read Lenovo was also coming out with one of these monsters running WP too. Oh and I bet there's going to be an HTC HD8

Except this forces you to buy a carrier plan, while a tablet can be WiFi only.

Not at all; I have a 920 and it is unbranded, as well as my previous 900 and 800.
Granted this is some kind of a phone so it would make sense to take advantage of such functionality.
Personally I would prefer a 5" smartphone and a 8" device, with handwriting capabilities of course, to use as agenda but phablets seem to be very popular nowadays.

Not to mention the forum post was made at 3:53PM while the WPC article was made at 5:34PM AND the image on the forum post has no watermark while the one in WPC does. Amusing to say the least.

?? Or those who don't care about the forums can read here on the front page?

Lol because there's much more information on the Forums... They even mention in the Forums that they posted the thread before WPCentral did, which is the source for this article. It'd make sense to read up about this topic before writing a news article about it... And at least use your own Forums for information and a reference too.
