Nokia today at the Nokia World: Abu Dhabi unveiled its latest devices to join the ever-growing Lumia family: the Lumia 1320 and 1520; and its first-ever Windows tablet, the Lumia 2520.
Sporting a 6-inch ClearBlack with Full HD 1080p and powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, the new Lumia 1520 is poised to be the flagship smartphone from Nokia. The device basically re-purposed the same premium design present on its siblings but the engineers managed to improved the “high brightness mode and sunlight readability algorithms” present on its PureView devices (920, 925 and 1020) via the “assertive display algorithms”. Rather than simply processing the whole display content with one set of parameters, the Assertive Display on the Lumia 1520 runs at an individual pixel level to make the screen more readable. The device comes with a 20-megapixel PureView camera powered by Zeiss with a front-facing camera clocked at 1.2mp; an Optical Image Stabilization and the over-sampling capability that is also present on the Lumia 1020. Photo enthusiasts will have an easy time taking shots too with Nokia combining the Smart Camera and Pro Camera via the Nokia Camera which will be made available in the coming days to all Lumia with PureView camera; add to that was the announcement of RAW DNG support coming to both Lumia 1520 and 1020. The new Nokia Lumia 1520 is priced at $749 and comes in red, white, yellow and black.
The Nokia Lumia 1320 on the other hand, is a 6-inch mid-ranged device powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 which is not really bad for your gaming experience. Major drawbacks are the screen which was downgraded to 720×1080; and the rear-camera 5mp and an underwhelming 0.3mp VGA front-facing camera. Shipping out early next year, the Lumia 1320 will be available in orange, white, black and yellow priced at $399.
We all saw this coming. Introducing, Nokia’s first ever tablet, the Nokia Lumia 2520. The 10.1-inch tablet runs Windows RT with a 1920×1080 display and follows the design (and flashy colors) of its Lumia devices siblings; and sports a 6.7mp rear camera with an f1.9 Zeiss lens and a 2mp front-facing one. The built-in storage is clocked at 32GB which can be expanded to up to 32GB microSD card. There’s a multi-purpose kickstand too that also serve as a kick-stand and can actually increase the battery life. The Lumia 2520 will be available in November, priced at $500 and available in red, cyan, gloss white and matte black.
The Lumia 2520 directly competes with Surface RT and depending on your preference, both of them offers a set of advantages over the other.
Of course, these devices come with a built-in Office Suites and HERE Maps that works even on offline mode. Head past break for technical specs comparison between the Lumia 1320 and 1520; and the Lumia 2520 and Surface RT.
