Back in November of 2013, Nokia announced a number of new devices, the most notable of which was arguably the Lumia 1520. Why? Because the Nokia Lumia 1520 was a landmark device that included all the features that Update 3 made available to the Windows Phone 8 platform. Massive phablet-sized screen? Check. Full HD resolution? Check. Top-shelf processor? Check. So when will the Lumia 1520 reach the Philippines?
The answer is now, it seems. While the Nokia Lumia 1520 hasn’t officially been launched within our shores just yet, it appears that some stores already have it in stock and are selling it to the public. Rv Cuarto, Editor in Chief of Nokia Revolution says:
I’ve visited two Nokia stores and found out that the Lumia 1520 is now available ahead of the official launch here in the Philippines. It is now being offered in selected Nokia stores and retail outlets nationwide. I’ve also seen the Lumia 1320 dummy unit but stocks availability and pricing is yet unknown.
Right now, the Lumia 1520 is selling at a discounted price of Php30,590. Looking to grab one? It’s available in black, white, yellow and red and can be found at select Nokia Stores and MemoXpress branches. Here are the specs in case you need a refresher.
