Report: UK to Get Nokia Lumia 1520 on November 25

Nokia's Lumia now 1520 has a rumored UK launch date of November 25. The phone just went up for pre-order in the United States and is set for launch on November 22 in the USA. However, so far, we haven't heard much from Nokia regarding the UK launch.


Retailers have highlighted a November release here in the UK, but TechRadar points to Unlocked Mobiles, which is taking pre-orders for the device (at £600 SIM-free) and says shipments will be shipping on November 25.  If true, that would put the phone's UK launch the Monday after its Friday, November 25 debut in the USA.

The Lumia 1520 was confirmed last month and features a 6-inch display with a 1080p resolution (the first among Windows Phone 8 devices), a quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC clocked to 2.2 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, support for up to 64 GB via microSD, and a massive 3,400 mAh battery. Of course, it wouldn't be a flagship Lumia without a great big camera to go along with it. Sure enough, the Lumia 1520 packs a 20-megapixel BSI F/2.4 PureView snapper complete with Carl Zeiss optics and OIS.
