It’s been almost nine months since Nokia announced the enormous Lumia 1520 handset, alongside its first Windows tablet, the Lumia 2520. As we reported a couple of days ago, the 2520 is said to be on its way to T-Mobile US, and now it seems that the 1520 may be joining it there in some form.
The Lumia 1520 was announced back in October 2013
According to @evleaks, a previously unheard-of device, known as the Lumia 1525, will make its way to T-Mobile at some point. No further details were revealed, but common sense would suggest that the 1525 is a variant of - or a successor to - the flagship 6-inch Lumia 1520.
At this stage, it isn’t yet clear if the 1525 will simply be a refreshed version of the 1520, or if it will be an entirely new model. Nokia’s numbering scheme for its devices isn’t quite logical enough to draw any conclusions from the similar model names, as the Lumia 620, 625 and 630 have shown.
T-Mobile has recently launched the brand new entry-level 4G handset, the Lumia 635, replacing the Lumia 521 in its range, which was itself a carrier-specific version of the ultra-affordable 520. It is possible that the company plans to introduce the 1525 as a unique variant of the 1520, although whether or not T-Mo intends to give its specs a boost for the launch remains to be seen. AT&T currently remains the only US carrier to offer the Lumia 1520.
