The Lumia 1520 may have grabbed the majority of the headlines during Nokia’s Abu Dhabi event this morning, but it’s not the only new smartphone to have been revealed. Joining the Lumia 1520 is the Lumia 1320, which is also another smartphone/tablet hybrid device, but with a slightly lower specification, and a considerably lower price.
Nokia has decided the 6-inch display seen on the Lumia 1520 is worth repeating on the Lumia 1320, but instead of the 1080p resolution, it has 720p. This drops the pixel density down to 245ppi, but it still boasts Nokia’s TrueColor and ClearBlack display technology.
While the quad-core Snapdragon 800 fits inside the Lumia 1520, the Lumia 1320 comes with a dual-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, along with 1GB of RAM. There’s also less internal memory, with only 8GB as standard, but the microSD card slot remains to increase this by 64GB.
Owners of the Lumia 1320 won’t get the same PureView camera either, as the phone has a 5-megapixel lens on the rear, and a basic 640 x 480 pixel video call lens above the screen. The feature list is completed with Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, 4G LTE, GPS and an FM radio.
As you’d expect, the Lumia 1320 is much cheaper than the Lumia 1520, and has been given a $340 price in the U.S., which is around £210, making it less than half of the range-topping phone. It’s a great price for a phone with such a large display. Nokia hasn’t committed to a UK release yet, saying only that it’ll be coming to Europe at the beginning of next year.
