With Nokia currently peddling its first ever phone/tablet device in the form of the Lumia 1520, it’s looking like the Finnish company isn’t going to sit back and rest on its laurels as a new Lumia 1820 smartphone and 1525 “phablet” device look to be on the way.
The Lumia flagship smartphone is looking set to be a bit of a beast from Nokia, as the Lumia 1820 will be packing a 5.2-inch display with a 2K resolution and will run a super speedy Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with a massive 3GB of RAM to boot!
This will combine with the Windows Phone 8 OS and all of Nokia’s bells and whistles and could spell a big push from Nokia in the phablet market which is currently dominated by Samsung and its Galaxy Note range. With Nokia’s suite of apps including Nokia Drive, Nokia Music and the excellent Nokia Camera all included in the Windows Phone 8 OS it makes any Nokia handset a pretty impressive package.
What’s more, the 1820 is rumoured to also have a meaty 3,400 mAh battery to keep it that big screen powered and an additional 32GB of expandable memory plus a camera with a Xenon flash. Finally, reports suggest that the device will feature a metal unibody design similar to that of the Lumia 925.

The 1525 is rumoured to share the same specifications as the Lumia 1820 (2K resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM) but this time with a 6-inch display, 25/30MP camera and a brand new chargeable solar display.
The information on the handset comes from a new source, @NextLeaks on Twitter, so should be taken with a pinch of salt. The next logical step for smartphone displays is 2K, although we’re a little unsure on the likelihood of a 25/30 megapixel sensor.
It’s a busy time for leaks as the Mobile World Congress tech event is just around the corner in February and many handsets are already lined up to be released at the event in Barcelona.
