The 6-inch Bandit is actually Lumia 1520, Sirius=10.1-inch tablet
Last week we informed you that Nokia is planning a 6-inch Lumia phablet codenamed “Bandit”. The Bandit was said to come later this year with the GDR3 update. Today, the pretty accurate source of mobile news @evleaks reveals the real name of the smartphone. According to @evleaks, Bandit will be called Nokia Lumia 1520.
Lumia 1520 or Bandit is going to be the first Nokia phone with a 1080p display resolution. It will probably have a very thin polycarbonate body and no less than 20 MP rear camera. Lumia 1520 is currently being tested at AT&T and is expected to hit the US market before year’s end.
In other news, Nokia is preparing a 10.1 inch tablet. It is codenamed `Sirius` and it resembles the Lumia products. Sources close to Nokia reveal that it will be lighter and thinner than the current iPad. Sirius will pack a 6 MP main and a 2 MP front-facing shooter, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and 2 GB of RAM. The storage is said to be 32 GB, but the tablet will have a microSD slot for an expansion. The Nokia Sirius tablet is expected to be unveiled during the New York event in September 26th.
