    Nokia Lumia 1820 with a 5.2in 2K display, 3GB of RAM and Lytro-like camera could be on the way

    Nokia could blow us all away at Mobile World congress with two high-specced mobile delights

    Nokia is set to make quite a splash at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month, if the latest whispers turn out to be true.

    According to @NextLeaks, Nokia will reveal its Lumia 1820 flagship at the show, and it's got quite the spec list. To put it mildly.

    A 5.2in 2K display, a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM are all said to be included in the 1820, along with a 3,400mAh battery, 32GB of expandable storage and a camera with a Xenon flash and Lytro-like technology which allows for post-capture re-focusing.

    Phew.

    Not only that, but it'll reportedly have a similar design to the metal Lumia 925, and it'll be available in March.

    BUT THAT'S NOT ALL...

    As if that wasn't enough, a second phone – the Nokia Lumia 1525 phablet – will also make an appearance, sporting the same hardware with the exception of a 6in screen, a 25/30MP camera and – get this – some form of chargeable solar display.

    It sounds like a spec-fiend's wildest dreams come true, but we're approaching it all with very cautious optimism.

    Unlike trusted leaker @evleaks, @NextLeaks is a brand new unproven account, but certain details like the Lytro-like camera do match up with 1820 rumours from late last year.

    Fingers crossed eh?

    3GB Ram? too unreal because i think even 1GB is actually enough...

    Unfounded, ridiculous, and weird... By the way, he said the 1820 would look like the 928, not the 925. Which makes the whole thing even weirder.

    Nice and all but will they do anything especially better than current devices? The 1520 isn't that much faster than the previous gen and only offers size as its differentiator and "future proofing" isn't a valid reason since nothing now or on the horizon is set to take advantage of those high specs.


    So apart from bragging rights I don't find these devices that exciting but that's probably because I have a 1020 which is recognized as having the best smartphone camera so for my new device to interest me it has to take that crown first before I consider any other upgrades worthwhile.

    maybe this is the international version of the Icon/929 - if it looks like the 928, sounds like it is to me..........It may even be the 929/Icon itself, and they are waiting until MWC to release the thing (which would really **** me off, considering im holding out for it, and im stuck with my old Galaxy Nexus, which is the absolute worst phone ive ever owned.

    So when Goldfinger is the 8.1 Flagship, would that mean there would be a new flagship device before it? I'm not that sure about if Nokia would do this!

    However, Lytro and 2k screen.. Amazing!! :D

    This sounds like someone's wish list rather than a real device. Odds of it coming to my carrier is practically zero.

    There is truth to these rumors because I've read the same a few days back on a major media site. Hopefully Nokia sells an unlocked version of these with US lte bands. Because we already know all too well how ATT neuters them.

    agreed. I used to think that this ATT exclusivity relationship was a necessary evil. But Nokia has really stepped up the game and MS seems to be following suit. Their phones are generating a lot of buzz on their own. It's time to open up the floodgates and make some serious inroads with the high end hardware.

    The 1820 I like, but I don't see it coming at MWC. I think after.

    I have been waiting for the Lytro-style Pelican imaging camera to arrive. The 2k display seems like overkill, but it's always nice to have top tier specs (whether we need them or not). It seems to be a natural human weakness to crave the newest, latest, greatest - hence, the spec wars. :(

    Yeah, the 1020 should've had pelican technology! That would've been sweet!

    From the mouth of Pelican Imaging...they HOPE their sensors will make it into devices from a couple of partners in Q1 or Q2 of 2015.

    @nextleaks has deleted the tweet about the "Nokia Lumia 1820" and some silly tweet about the Samsung Galaxy S5.

    Like I said, completely baseless and unreliable. https://twitter.com/NextLeaks

    Yea, not surprised. You know, the model number doesn't even make sense to me. Since this would be a WP8.1 device, you'd think it would deserve incrementing the number to maybe xx3x or x3x.

    I agree completely... I expect any 5" flagship to be a 93X variant... 1530 more like and weird to replace it so fast... we are over due the 63X 83X and 93X with 520 and 720 shown off at MWC 2013 something is coming.... this is like the longest they have gone with out a device release. That and the 929\Icon is nowhere to be seen.... Before Christmas I believed we would see WP8.1 at WMC 14 but Mary Jo seems adamant it will be April at Build. While I think she probably the one who would know what's going on I cant see them waiting that long... Especially if the rumours are true and they are going to show off Windows 9 at Build...

    Back on topic, If this is true this could be the first time WP phone grabs the lead in a spec war, one that isn't camera orientated... but I don't think that will happen with out 8.1

    Spec guys are drooling over this but what about features? I am a feature guy. If said device has 32G of DDR5 Ram but still does the same thing it does not I wouldn't be to excited but then again if it had 1TB storage I would be excited cause it would be like an external HDD.

    Everybody assumes they know nokias number scheme but they really don't. Nokia went from 900 to 920. So what makes ppl think they'd go to 930? Why not 960 or 937? Can't base your belief of these rumors off of the number scheme

    And to take that a step further, who gives a rat's a$$ what number they use? The capability will speak for itself. Call it the Nokia Lumia Prancing Pony for all I care.

    Especially that devices might not be called "Nokia Lumia", as Microsoft is taking over.

    I think they will still be called Lumias. Microsoft has the rights to the name for 5 years and I don't see any good reason to change the name, at least not right now.

    I believe Microsoft said they will be releasing phones in the Nokia name since it is a known name but this is sourceless i read it somewhere i am not sure

    They could only release phones with Nokia's name on the Asha series feature phones. Part of the liscencing deal. But I expect any interest in the Asha series by MS to be extremely short lived when compared to the L52X series success.

    I actually am still cheering for "Lumia" to be the brand name of MS produced smartphones instead of releasing them under the "Microsoft" name. That would be a good way to keep a link to the Nokia name.

    That "1820" 5.2" display would be perfect for me. Any other top end goodies would be bonus.

    I, by the way, will not believe this gossip until a few more leaks come out. This just seems to be one of those "pie in the sky" leaks.

    I'm waiting for the phone that takes noticeably better pictures than the 1020 in a body like the 1520. Curious to how this Lytro will perform.
