Poses with its arm around the 1020
We're expecting the rumoured Lumia 1520 to be uncaged at the end of September in New York, but unfortunately for Nokia there's this thing called the internet where pesky leaks are all too common.
The latest of which is a picture purporting to show the new Nokia phablet side by side with the Lumia 1020.
Now, we're no strangers to leaky pictures here at TechRadar and we've seen our fair share of fakers. So all we'd say is that it's not unreasonable to suspect this could be a simple mock up.
But if it is, it's a strong one. The Lumia 1520 Windows Phone has been rumoured to have a 6-inch 1080p display and 20MP camera.
The size seems to measure up in the pic and we can also see what appears to be an attachable cover
Other said specs include a quad-core Snapdragon CPU and the Windows Phone 8 GDR3 update that will support that 1080p display.
As for the name of the phone, this has come courtesy of the phone industry's worst nightmare @evleaks who tweeted "Nokia Bandit = Lumia 1520". Nokia Bandit sounded weird so this makes much more sense.
Nokia's Sirius-codenamed Windows 8 RT tablet is also expected to make its debut at the late September event. Looks like Nokia's all about the big stuff right now.
