Nokia South Africa has unveiled the company’s first 6-inch Lumia smartphone to be made available in the market – the Nokia Lumia 1520. The model will be made available in a variety of colours, including black and yellow.
“The Nokia Lumia 1520 comes with a 1080p Full HD screen with an enhanced start screen featuring an additional 3rd column of live tiles, allowing people to get to their favourite apps faster with less scrolling. Thanks to the 20MP PureView camera with optical image stabilisation, oversampling technology and zooming capabilities, people can easily capture and edit high quality pictures and tell better stories,” Nokia said in a statement.
In addition to the 1520, Nokia also unveiled the Nokia Asha 500, 502 and 503 for more price-sensitive consumers. The new Asha models are expected to arrive in South Africa starting in March.
“We are significantly expanding our Lumia portfolio in more ways than one with the Nokia Lumia 1520. With our latest imaging innovations and the best from Microsoft brought to a new form factor, we’re helping people to capture the world around them and do more on the go,” said Shaun Durandt, Nokia’s GM for South Africa.
The 1520 will be made available on contract starting at R449 per month in South Africa.
