Nokia Lumia 1520, the long-rumored, big-screened smartphone, which has finally been announced at Nokia World in Abu Dhabi. With a 6-inch display it’s the biggest Windows Phone ever, and its 1080p resolution is a first for Microsoft’s mobile operating system.

The new Lumia 1520 is a top-end phablet that comes with a 20MP BSI F/2.4 PureView camera with OIS and Carl Zeiss lens. There's also something Nokia calls the Refocus Lens, which is a fruit of the company's Scalado acquisition; this lens is like a software-based version of Lytro, which uses "clever algorithms" to let you change the focus of your photo after it's taken. (This lens will debut on the 1520 and eventually make it to older Lumia devices, such as the 900 series.). It's 8.6mm thick, 85.4mm-wide and runs on a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset. The handset also has 2GB RAM, 32GB expandable storage, 3,400mAh battery, NFC and wireless charging.

At the international unveiling of the device, Nokia said it will be priced at $749 excluding taxes.

Nokia is expected to soon launch its Lumia 1520 phablet in the Indian market and has already listed the device on its official website for the country. The India website of the company does not have the local pricing of the handset.
