Rumours suggested that we might see the Lumia 1520 – Nokia’s alleged 6-inch Windows Phone – announced on September 26th, but an official launch event has apparently been pushed back. Both Reuters and The Verge report that Nokia has delayed the announcement of the device due to its recent acquisition by Microsoft.
Reuters says that the launch has been pushed back “several weeks”, but The Verge believes that a rescheduled announcement will come in mid-October. The site also says that Nokia is mulling a new location for the event, which was rumoured to be held in New York.
Nokia’s Lumia 1520 would mark the first time that Windows Phone has entered into 6-inch territory. The device is believed to have a 1080p display, along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC and a 20-megapixel PureView camera. Windows Phone will also see an update to support the new 1080p resolution, adding a third row of columns and giving owners even more space for their various tiles on the homescreen.
Update: It looks like Nokia will be ready to show off the Lumia 1520 on October 22nd.
