After launching the Lumia 1320 in China and other parts of Asia in late December and January, Nokia has now set a date for the 6-inch smartphone to debut outside that region. Today, the company announced the Lumia 1320 will be released in the UK and Ireland on February 24th.
The email press release stated that the phone will be made available from a number of wireless carriers in the UK, including EE, Virgin Mobile and Carphone Warehouse, along with many other online retailers; specific pricing was not announced.
The large 6-inch screen has a LCD IPS display with a resolution of 1280×720. Inside, there's a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with a clock speed of 1.7GHz, along with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of on-board storage, with a microSD card slot for adding up to 64GB of additional space. The Windows Phone 8 device is basically a budget version of the Lumia 1520, with a less powerful processor and lacking the 1520's 20 megapixel PureView camera. Instead, the 1320 has a 5 megapixel rear camera.
There's still no word if the Lumia 1320 will make its way to the U.S.
