Rumor: Nokia Lumia 1520 will get a 3400 mAh battery

While we wait patiently for Nokia to officially announce its expected press event for the 6-inch Lumia 1520, a new report claims that the next Windows Phone from the folks in Finland will have a very large battery indeed.

WPCentral reports, via unnamed sources, that the 1520 will have a 3400 mAh battery inside, which would be the largest battery by far for any phone in the Lumia family. This seems logical since it has to power such a huge display. By comparison, the recently announced 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will have a 3200 mAh battery when it launches later this month.

The same story from WPCentral also claims that the 1520 will have four microphones, in part to help when the device is being used simply as a phone. In addition, the smartphone is described by its source as "really thin, but it has some weight to it."

While Nokia is expected to announce the 1520 late in September, the actual launch of the smartphone is rumored to occur sometime in November. That's also supposed to be the case for the rumored Windows RT tablet from Nokia and both devices are reportedly debuting in the U.S. exclusively on AT&T initially.

Really do not get the need/want for big phones like this. I have not seen anyone on a phone that big or even anyone with a Galaxy Note. Are they really that popular?


seem to be, its a case of balance really. If your email/doc editing/note taking etc. (anything that a lends itself to a bogger screen) more than making/receiving calls then it maybe for you.

most things i do with the phone is working on the screen .. i really hardly hold the phones up at my ear anyways. so why not have a big screen to use the screen with its full potential?

Where are you from? I live in a metroplitan center and many small (Asian women) have Samsung Note (OG and 2). Hell, some even have the 'Mega'. These are huge phones, bigger than their forearms! To each their own, I guess!

I have a Note [1] because I really like the big screen. I have fat fingers and it helps to have a larger onscreen keyboard. Also, I like being able to adjust the DPI to low levels while still being able to read the text. If only the 1520 had the same camera as the 1020... It would be perfect... As it stands, I probably won't be able to wait for 1520 and will have to get the 1020.

Yeah... they got most of the things I need to upgrade from my Lumia 920 including a MicroSD(HC?) card slot, larger battery, and full HD screen resolution with a better camera. If they had just put that 41MP camera in it, It would have been a perfect upgrade.

Why with the carrier exclusive?! I really don't understand that with the market so competitive now.

because the carrier will do alot of promoting. Nokia was cash strapped,they have to,do this. Expect things to change with the ms takeover.

Microsoft owns the Nokia name for at least 10 more years.
