The black 32GB Lumia 1520 RM-938 from Nokia puts a high-end camera into a phablet style smartphone for those who never want to be without a good camera. Smartphones are quickly becoming the go to device for taking pictures and with a 20MP main camera sensor with optical image stabilization, RAW still capture, dual LED Flash, 3x digital zoom, and full manual control all available on the Lumia 1520 you won't have to compromise on image quality when you leave your dedicated camera at home. Along with still photos, you can record video at resolutions up to 1080p at 30 fps. Once recorded, you can then upload your video or photos directly to social media straight from the Lumia 1520. In addition to the enhanced rear facing camera, you can make Skype calls, record video, and capture stills with the 1.2MP front facing camera.

The Lumia 1520 also features 6.0" IPS LCD display complete with a 1920 x 1080 resolution and a pixel density of 368 ppi. The enhanced ClearBlack IPS display supports super sensitive touch screen technology giving you complete control over all of your apps. The ambient light sensor adjusts the display to match the current lighting conditions while the integrated accelerometer adjusts the display to match the phones viewing position.

Inside the Lumia 1520 you'll find a 2.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM memory giving you the necessary processing power to run a variety of applications and games. Along with enhanced processing power, this smartphone includes 32GB internal storage memory perfect for downloading applications, storing pictures and videos, and much more. If the 32GB internal memory isn't sufficient, you benefit from 7GB free cloud storage and a microSDXC card slot capable of holding memory cards up to 64GB.

With a variety of connectivity options the Lumia 1520 keeps you in the know wherever you go. This smartphone is compatible with select 2G, 3G, and LTE GSM networks. Along with the ability to connect to cellular data networks, you can also connect to 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac compatible Wi-Fi networks while Bluetooth 4.0 technology makes it easy to connect wireless devices such as Bluetooth headsets. This version of the Lumia 1520 also supports Qi wireless charging with any Qi compatible wireless charger (sold separately).

If a music player is what you are looking for, the Lumia 1520 has you covered. Download music apps like Nokia MixRadio to create subscription free customized radio stations. Along with Nokia MixRadio, you also have the ability to download a variety of Internet radio applications and even listen to FM radio directly from your phone.

If you ever get lost simply utilize the HERE Drive+, HERE Maps, and HERE Transit applications to get back on course. These integrated navigation applications provide turn by turn directions along with points of interest, routing options, live traffic information, turn-by-turn walking directions, public transportation routing guidance, and much more.
20MP Nokia PureView Camera with Zeiss Optics
The main rear camera of the Nokia 1520 features a headline-grabbing 20MP, but the camera on the Nokia 1520 has far more then pixel count going for it. The image sensor is back-side illuminated and is 1/2.5", which is larger than typical smartphone cameras. This means that the individual 20 Million photosites on the 1520's image sensor are no smaller than the photosites on most smartphone cameras. In front of the image sensor is an impressive 6-element, 26mm equivalent, f/2.4 lens with Zeiss Optics, further making sure all 20MPs don't go to waste. The image sensor is also slightly larger then the lens circle which allows for both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios to capture as much of the lens's image circle as is possible, both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios capture about 19MP of entire 20MP sensor.

The Nokia 1520's camera also features optical image stabilization, which allows the camera to use slower shutter speeds and gather more light without adding motion blur from shaky hands. And if you need even more light the 1520's dual LED flash will produce great looking results for enhanced pictures in lower light conditions. The front of the 1520 also features a 1.2MP front facing camera for video chatting or capturing more candid photographs. The PureView camera can capture images in JPEG or RAW in 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratios. It can also record 1080p HD video at 30 fps with up to a 3x digital zoom.
PureView Sampling and High Resolution Zoom
The Nokia 1520 lets you save full resolution JPEG or RAW photographs if you desire maximum quality, and is also able to downsample the full 20MP to ultra-sharp 5MP photos for easier sharing with social networks or email. The downsampled 5MP photos can be saved simultaneously with the full resolution ones, or you can just save the 5MP photos to save space on your phone. The ultra high resolution image sensor also allows for a high quality digital zoom, as a 5MP photo at 2x zoom is still capturing the full 5MP center of the 20MP image sensor.
Full Manual Control with Nokia Pro Camera
Complimenting the 1520's high end camera is the Nokia Pro Camera app. When using Nokia Pro Camera you have easy access to manual controls like ISO, Shutter Speed, White Balance, Exposure Compensation, and Manual Focus. You can edit all of these settings manually or set some to automatic and choose which ones you want to edit. White balance modes include cloudy, incandescent, fluorescent, daylight, and automatic; and ISO selection includes ISO 100, ISO 200, ISO 400, ISO 1600, ISO 3200, ISO 4000, as well as automatic. Other Nokia Camera Apps are included like the Panorama app for stitching together panoramic photos, Cinemagraph for creating sharable movie-like animated images from several photographs, and more.
GSM / LTE Wireless Connectivity
This phone is designed to work on select GSM networks and is 4G LTE capable. LTE is an advanced cellular network data protocol capable of data speeds so fast that they compete with wired broadband internet providers. With an LTE connection, this phone should have no problem streaming HD video, downloading apps, uploading photos, or anything else that requires a high-speed data connection. The phone is also backwards compatible with 3G and 2G data for instances when you can't get LTE. In addition to cellular wireless, this phone also features Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.
