    Nokia developer & AT&T listings gives more force to #Lumia1520 coming to T-Mobile with inbuilt wireless charging.

    Device Details -- Nokia Lumia 1520

    RM-938 now listed as US variant, not global variant. The RM-938 has 32GB of storage and Qi wireless charging.
    If it is for T-Mobile they better stock up with all they can, there will be waits for this one.

    There are four variants

    RM-937 Global variant, LTE 1 3 7 8 20
    RM-938 US variant - Went through FCC, LTE 2 4 5 17
    RM-939 China variant
    RM-940 AT&T, Went through FCC, DTM removed, no Qi charging, LTE band 4 disabled, 16GB, LTE 2 5 17

    I think they are all LCD display

    at&t verizon and t-mobile getting variants of this new phablet would be very good for the platform. my only question is, how long after at&t releases their version will it take for t-mobile and verizon to release theirs?

    I know I will be waiting :O I was waiting to see where that variant would land. I was expecting it to be on some Canadian carrier since they tend to get models with the 1700Mhz band. If it lands on T-Mobile that would be amazing! it would come with wifi calling! I'm currently rocking a Telus Lumia 1020 and it's awesome on T-Mobile!

    T-mobile is not getting the 1520, but you can buy the global variant and use it on T-mobile.

    The global variant, RM-937, does not have the T-Mobile LTE band.

    Do you have a source that says T-Mobile is not getting the 1520 ??
    It's an AT&T exclusive. That's more than well documented.

    but then in the same sense the AT&T has an exclusive 1520 with 16GB, AMOLED Display without wireless charging, while the 1520 that was announced has 32GB, LCD, and wireless charging...

    Does DTM being removed mean you can't do voice/data at the same time?

    That's my fear. The 920 exclusivity led to Verizon's delayed release of the 928 and T-Mo's delayed release of the 925 (all for the most part the same device with minor differences). I want to be optimistic though, so here's to hoping! (But in all seriousness, it's probably also the Rogers variant and I'll likely have to import it...)

    yeah I decided that AT&T variant wasn't worth my money and just bought a 925 for $400 yesterday. Maybe a year or so from now I'll pick up the 1520 from tmobile. However, my android died on me and I'm ready to make the jump to windows phone now, so the 925 will have to do

    Must be nice to just make pronouncements without doing your homework. My money is on the Nokia Developer site when it says that the RM-938 is a US variant and then lists T-Mobile's exact bands. The OP has it right although you never know about the 32 GB until it is actually announced. This will not take six months either since it has already gone to the FCC and is on the developer site. Sometimes it really helps to actually check the links.

    Even though I kinda hate this phone ( giant size with no real reason/extra features ) this being on tmobile would tempt me slightly. I just bought a Note 3, and I kinda like it. but I do miss being a WP user.

    AT&T is my primary carrier with grandfathered data. I won't swap my 1020 for this phone since I actually want something I will keep with me. On the other hand I have a secondary T-Mobile line and currently use a 521 to enable wifi calling, primarily at home. As a secondary and occasional phone the 1520 makes more sense on T-Mobile because I don't have to have it with me constantly. The size is still an issue but the specs and hot swappable SD make access to its features when I want them attractive. I could get an adapter and swap the sim card back to the 521 when I need true mobility on that line. That also gets around the wireless charging issue that AT&T has saddled their version with. I see the 1520 as basically a have around the house device. Maybe throw it in with a travel kit and use it in a hotel room. Limited practicality otherwise and it has to compete with true LTE tablets in that space.

    There's no such thing as a 6" AMOLED, at least not for third party clients. Samsung makes all the AMOLED displays, and they keep the best and latest for their own phones. The Galaxy Round has a 5.7" display. So does the Note 3. All other phonemakers get last gen AMOLED displays from Samsung. This includes the penTile 4.5" on the Lumia 925 and 928, and the 720p 4.7" and 5" on the Moto X and latest Droid.

    Please stop insisting there is a 6" AMOLED, when Nokia doesn't even make its own displays. Samsung doesn't even have one available to sell to them. And if they did, it would cost a pretty penny.

    AMOLED is newer than IPS LCD, but it isn't necessarily better. They each have their flaws. I think IPS is still the far superior solution at the moment. I am well aware of the pitfalls of AMOLED since I have been using AMOLEDs since the first SuperAMOLED branded display came out from Samsung.

    I totally agree. In practice I think IPS LCD is the superior solution for smartphones. A 6" AMOLED screen would be one insane power hog if you had anything bright at all. Then there's the aging issue. And the tinting.

    Well if this is true, (hopefully it is) I bet there will be a mass exodus from AT&T by those who can switch.. I mean who wants to be saddled with a carrier that is far up its own behind that doesn't give two hoots about its oem's partner or it's customers?

    By killing the 1520 the way they did is going to cost Nokia hellova alot of potential revenue, as the 1520 could have broken the LSD market for WP8 (I just loathe the term phablet lol.. sounds like a obese tablet imo).

    Sure they stripped out qi for the vapourware standard because of their allegiance but that doesn't explain why they crippled the internal storage (other than forcing people to pay for their AT&T Locker service like they removed tethering).. I have yet to see a PMA case or cover or accessory marketed and sold to consumers.

    Yep, because nokiapoweruser have never been wrong before right? Oh yeah, Elop word>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>this guy word.

    Sometimes it really helps to actually check the links.
    Or realize this is a rumor, that go against the facts that Elop and co. stated at the Nokia World last week!

    It isn't about Nokiapoweruser, it is the actual link to the Nokia developer site. The AT&T exclusive can easily be short-lived. How long was T-Mobile's exclusive on the 925? Also, we have already seen the variant trick where a phone emerges on another network with a slightly different model number. The FCC filing isn't a rumor and neither is the Nokia developer designation of that model as a US variant. The only thing Nokiapoweruser did was put the pieces together since that variant definitely does not match the AT&T model coming out this month. My money, considering ALL the facts is on a T-Mobile version emerging by early next year. Sorry about the sarcasm though.

    When have an AT&T exclusive WP8 been "short-lived" though? The 920 & 1020 are still AT&T exclusives, though.

    How long was T-Mobile's exclusive on the 925?
    A couple of months or so, but the 925 was a "timed" exclusive. So Yeah, T-mobile doesn't have a exclusive deal with Nokia like At&t and AT&T's exclusives stay exclusive to At&t, just saying.

    Also, we have already seen the variant trick where a phone emerges on another network with a slightly different model number. The FCC filing isn't a rumor and neither is the Nokia developer designation of that model as a US variant.
    There were four variants, then five variants, and now there is only three variants.

    Oooooo, Nola75, don't do it, do not bet against Elop. Seriously though, When A WP8 become a exclusive to At&t, it's never short-lived but remains a exclusive to Att, unlike T-mobile. No biggie, sarcasm does not bother me. FYI, I honestly have no problem with the 1520 being on T-mobile. I just do not believe it will ever come to T-mobile.
