The first Windows Phone 8 device with a full HD display
The Lumia 1520 is Nokia’s entrant to the ‘Phablet’ market. Samsung, HTC and Sony have all
stamped their authority on the phablet world and now it’s Nokia’s turn to add to the mix. I’ll be covering the Nokia Lumia 1520 over the next couple of weeks identifying some of the main features in more depth to give you a better understanding of what exactly Nokia’s entry phablet has on offer.
Nokia have introduced a 6-inch ClearBlack IPS LCD (1920×1080) display on the Lumia 1520 making it the first Windows Phone 8 handset to run such a display thanks to a software update, and boasts a pixel density of 368 pixels per inch, improving on the 334ppi that feature on the Lumia 1020.
Most of Nokia’s Lumia handsets have featured ClearBlack displays and they’ve continued this trend with the 1520. Nokia’s ClearBlack technology gives deeper blacks and better viewing angles, high brightness mode also features; this will increase the luminance of the screen by up to 20% in sunny conditions. The next enhancement is the inclusion of sunlight readability which will tune the display so that details are much more clearer and crisper in direct sunlight.
Super sensitive touch is another welcome highlight that lets you interact with your display using your finger nails and even with gloves on. Nokia have spent a lot of time researching the technology behind super sensitive touch and were the first manufacturers to implement this technology on a smartphone.
The 1520 has an extremely toughened Gorilla Glass 2 display, Gorilla Glass offer visually stunning; sleek smartphone and tablet displays whilst providing exceptional damage resistance to the scratches and bumps of everyday use.
