Just of October 22, Nokia announces the Lumia 1320, a phablet to sell for budget-minded consumers. During the launch event happened in Abu Dhabi, Nokia announces two new smart phones that are touting same 6-inches screen but differ in offerings.
The Nokia Lumia 1320 is a phablet that is like the 1520 and some other Lumias (exception is the 925), it has polycarbonate plastic body with different striking colours of your choice such as yellow, orange, white and the usual hue, black. The Lumia 1320 has rounded corners. At the right side are the physical buttons such as volume rocker, lock/switch, and the dedicated camera buttons.
As for the panel, the Nokia Lumia 1320 is only equipped with 6” 720p (1280 x 720) display so to give way for Lumia 1520’s 1080p display. While on top is the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for tough touch display. The touch panel is said to be supersensitive even if you are wearing gloves or having long fingernails.
Take at the back is the usual and abused 5-megapixels camera with auto-focus sitting just below the LED flash and can record 1080p video @30fps. You could also found the Nokia logo here printed in the center beneath the camera sensor. Round the front there is a VGA camera for video conferencing and so for selfies.
The Nokia Lumia 1320 is blessed because it is a GDR3 ready Windows Phone 8 monster meaning you can get enhance performances and additional features such as like rotation lock, some UI changes, driving mode and sync to pc for text messages. Also there will be additional columns to the Live Tiles at the start screen so to accommodate devices with larger screens.
Inside the device is the computing power of 1.7 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU paired by 1 GB of RAM for smooth and reliable Windows Phone experience. There’s also the presence of 8 GB of internal memory that can be expanded via microSD slot which can hold up to 64 GB external memory card capacity. And the Nokia Lumia 1320 is supporting both 3G and 4G LTE.
So what can you ask for a mid-range Windows Phone like this? Maybe a quad-core processor can make this lumia 1320 your bet but as far as Microsoft’s mobile operating system is running really and undeniably smooth and slug less, you can really get a good performer smart phone even without a 4-core CPU. Aside that you can also get the Nokia’s exclusive apps including Nokia Music, Here Maps Nokia Camera and Storyteller. But maybe a 5-megapixel shooter is a downside of lumia 1320 because of that some can offer higher camera pixel at same price point. Speaking of the price, the Nokia Lumia 1320 will be available in first quarter of 2014 first in China and Vietnam with the estimated price of $339 before local taxes and subsidies.
