Alleged Nokia Bandit screenshot hints at Lumia 1520 moniker

Nokia’s devices and services division may have been bought by Microsoft, but the company still has quite a few new exciting devices coming this year. And now, EvLeaks is back with more Nokia Bandit news and this time, the tipster has a screenshot for us. For those still unfamiliar with Bandit, it’s the rumoured Nokia phablet with a 6-inch 1080p display, which it’s said the company will soon launch as Lumia 1520.

Today’s leak shows a screenshot of the Bandit. The screenshot has an odd resolution of 1820x1023 pixels. The time shown on the device is 15:20, which is in line with the rumoured Lumia 1520 name. If that pans out, this could very well be the screenshot that will be used in promotional material for the phone. There’s also an L next to the signal indicator, which suggests this one will come with LTE connectivity.

While there’s not much by way of specs about the Bandit, rumours have said that it would have a Snapdragon 800 SoC, which means a quad-core CPU clocked at 2.2+ GHz. The large display is said to have a full HD resolution and will reportedly run the GDR3 update for Windows Phone 8, which is optimised for full HD displays and brings extra Live Tile sizes for the Start Screen, along with an extra column.

We can see all the usual Nokia software accoutrements promoted in the screenshot – from Nokia Camera to Music+ to HERE. But there doesn’t seem to be any new software feature developed for the Bandit.
