    According to evleaks, there is going to be a 1525 on T-Mobile. Would you consider it? I have an unlocked 1520 on T-Mobile, but may seek out and get the 1525, so that all bands are supported

    Came here to post. Exciting :D. Even though I already have a unicorn 1520.3.

    This is a total guess re: specs I'm sure, but FWIW: Nokia Lumia 1525 specs

    I am so ready to get this! Just yesterday I sid to a friend that I was going to jump ship and get the 1520 on AT&T, and then this. So happy. Now I just need a release date. This has made my year. Anyone want to buy a lightly used 925😊

    If anything it might be called 1530 because windows phone 8 runs on x2x and 8.1 are running on x3x (pre installed)

    I just got my 1520 two months ago. I really hope it's not something more than a carrier variant like the 521.

    I know this is sort of off topic, but what's the difference between a 1520 and 1520.3?

    1520.3 is the unlocked international version with US LTE support.

    Those phonearena specs are ridiculous. But the model number begs the question, how will this improve upon the 1520. My guess is screen resolution or processor. I don't think there would be a benefit to more RAM. A metal chassis would be awesome, but that's a lot of work I'd imagine.

    Edit: So those specs came from an old @nextleaks rumor. Why would phonearena publish that junk?

    I have a 925 on T-Mobile and I have been dying to get the 1520.3 but just paying $630 up front is way too much. If there really is a 1525 coming out tmobile I would love to get it, but what about the Mclaren????? I mean Mclaren is also coming to tmobile but would you rather get the mclaren or 1525? I'll just have to see what the specs are myself and I guess I'll decide then. What would you guys most likely choose, McLaren or 1525?

    The "1525" is supposedly just a carrier variant of the 1520 to fill a device gap while the McLaren is a latest-and-greatest hero device. The choice appears to be simple.

    I hope T-mobile will not gimp the specs like At&t did with the 1520.

    Even though the 1520 hasn't been out long, I really hope the 1525 bring the snapdragon 801 and Qi wireless charging.

    The Lumia 1525 from Nokia by Microsoft is a Windows Phone 8.1-powered 1520 with the SoC upgraded to a Snapdragon 801. Besides T-Mobile, it’s also going to — wait for it, wait for it — AT&T and Verizon.

    I thought the SD 801 would be a given. I really think this has a lot to do with the screen sensitivity issue. My theory all along has been that it has something to do with the way parts of the hardware interacts with the SD 800.

    BTW, don't you remember which US carrier was supposed to get the green 1520? I presume it might be actually the 1525!
    Aaaaa, I want a green shell for my 1520 =\

    Finally!!! TMobile will have a high-end WP device. Like my L925, but really want something like the 1520, so I'm hyped that a 1525 will come soon. I guess I'll wait to make the "Jump."

    1520 isn't the only phone with screen sensitivity issues. 1020 has the same issue. Many non Lumia's have it too. Price you pay for these newer high sensitivity screens.

    You're right, but it seems to be a lot more prevalent in the Lumia 1520. But there are other devices running on a SD 800 that have it as well. If the sensitivity issue is resolved in the 1525, I'll be pretty convinced that the SD 800 was the main culprit.

    Wonder which colors will arrive at which carriers. Green and orange seem like sure bets somewhere now.

    Do the Icon and 930 have the issues as well? Seeing as they are S800 devices.

    I would just like to convey the roumors:
    • It would feature a 25/30 MP camera
    • It would have 3GB DRAM
    • It would have a 4K screen resolution
    • it would have a 3400mah Battery
    • it would have a solar charging touchscreen
    • It 'may' have the 3D touch

    If these rumors are true, we will have a sure shot winner on our hands, provided all this comes at less than $800, ideally $700-750.

    Please if anyone has any rumor (I don't expect any news just yet) about the launch date please update us all ASAP!!!!

    .
    I wonder why would anyone call it an 'issue' it is just that when the screen mode is high sensitive, it may record even warmth or very slight variation in air pressure, when we hold or move our finger, just over the screen. It is a functionality. if you don't want it, set the sensitivity to low and you won't have this 'problem'
