    I would still wonder even if it is just a rumor.
    What captivates me about the 1520 is that is thinner than the 929. Heavier doesn't phase me, it is thickness that throws me off, but that screen size on the 1520 is too much.
    My Lumia 810 is fine on the screen size for me but like I have stated on another topic, it's too bulky and the Dual-Core cannot keep up with me.
    Quad-Core is a must, even if it 1.5GHz or faster.

    Wouldn't the Lumia Icon (929) be the mini-1520? LoL Same specs, smaller screen....

    I sure would like to know if the 929 is going to be available on AT&T soon. I plan on getting the 1520 soon but if the 929 was available soon if wait for that.

    Right but it is thicker than the 1520, and "thinner" is my pet-peeve.

    Really! That's excellent news. When and where was that announcement? If it 100% gonna happen I'll wait for the 929. A 5" screen is what I really want anyway, I was just gonna settle for the 1520's 6"er but I think I might just wait now.

    the 1520v/Mini is a made up rumor. The 1520 can be thinner because the parts can be spread out and not stacked.

    If anything, the Icon and the likely unannounced 929/930 international model would fill the spot.

    That was just for the 1520, not for a smaller model.

    For the time being the 929 is as close as it gets to a mini. Unfortunately a smaller case size meant a thicker device since something had to give to fit it all in a 5" device.

    It's settled, then. No need to hope, I will just buy the Nokia Lumia 1520.

    If they made a mini version of the 1520 (which is ridiculous), it would not be as slim as the 1520...
    Also, it's not so much about how many cores, it's more about the GHz

    ...and about work per clock cycle and the latency between cores.

    I'm also hoping to see newer LPDDR implementations soon.

    Exactly why I want the 1520, the 2.2GHz processor got my attention first hand. Just that more cores working together benefits at some points.

    Morpheus is correct, the work per clock cycle and latency do come into play, just like laptop and desktop processors.
    Hoping for the new DDR modules, as well.

    thought the 929 (icon) was exclusive to Verizon just as the 1520 is exclusive to at&t in the states.

    id say you could fit it all in such a thin device just a smaller screen and a smaller battery? id say the 3,400 battery takes a fair wack of the internal space in the 1520?? the design of the 1520 is nice id like too see a mini version instead of an international version of the icon , id expect to see one of the two though for the 8.1 release an international icon is more likely then they can release that camera module again in different areas under a different name ;-)

    Look at every other "mini" phone out there (gs4 mini, one mini, z2 compact etc...)
    None of those mini phones are as thin as their bigger counterparts.... So why would Nokia be able to do pull that off but not any other company?

    Also, haven't you noticed that the 1520 design is very similar to the 925?? The 925 is pretty much a mini 1520!

    I think we'll see the 930 (920 successor) as a first 8.1 device, and then later on the 935 (925 successor) will come to some specific carriers because of all that BS exclusivity you guys have in the us
    (no 1520 mini)

    The Icon is thicker because Verizon didn't want a camera hump, added built in wireless charging and wanted similar look & feel than the 928. Otherwise the phone would look like the 925 with a bigger screen. The Icon is actually thinner by a bit & lighter than it's predecessor the 928.

    "Exclusive" is a short term word now. I believe it's down to 6 months. So when 8.1 falls, maybe AT&T will get a GSM version..

    the z1 compact is pretty much identical bar the screen size and battery to the z1 , like I say if you think about it why couldn't you put the 1520 into a 925 shell?? apart from the screen and battery its only a cpu and gpu upgrade a bit more ram the camera is taken care of by the hump anyways isn't it?

    the only reason the 1520 is so big is for the screen and the superb battery you could easily trim it down and make a 1520 mini with the same cpu , the same gpu , the same ram , the same camera , a micro sd slot , wireless charging etc , even if they took wireless charging out a 1520 would be very very possible

    the z1 has a camera with a bigger sensor then the 1520 but has no camera hump and that is about 1520 thickness , maybe just a tad thicker , so I am sure they could make a phone with the 1520 design just a bit smaller specially if it had the camera hump like the 1520 ;-)

    the only reason others haven't made a high end mini is because they have been rinising the flagship name and then selling an underspecced mini version with the flagship name to make more money

    It can probably be done, but it won't be called the 1520 mini because that makes absolutely no sense, seriously what's the point in making a mini phablet... It's just a regular smartphone! It's gonna be the 935 for you :)

    yep it wont happened but that doesn't mean it couldn't be done , the uk etc will get an international version of the icon , I am pretty sure of this , it means nokia can use that camera module and cpu/gpu/ram in 3 phones in different markets , icon , 930 , 1520 and gives them more time for the next big thing ........ its good for business for them really

    I like the icon but I hope the international version has a micro sd slot ;-) I still wont change from my 1020 64gb though ;-) itll take another big sensor , xenon wielding power house to make me leave this lil yellow beaut lol ;-)

    So, why bother even hoping for it to have a Micro SD card, then?
    Now, you guys are making me want to wait for the Lumia 930. XD
