First Look: Nokia Lumia 1320: a 6-inch Windows phone on a budget

1:34 /

The Nokia Lumia 1320 packs a 6-inch screen and the latest Windows Phone 8 software but doesn't charge the Earth for it.

I'm Andrew Hoyle for CNET and I'm here with Nokia in Abu Dhabi taking a look at its new Lumia 1320, a 6-inch Windows Phone 8 device with a fairly affordable price tag. Now that 6-inch display makes the 1320 a really big beast to the phone. If you've got quite small hands, this probably isn't for you but it does give you loads of room for watching videos and checking out your photos. It has a 720p display, which isn't quite the full HD of its big brother, the 1520, but it's still seems fairly sharp and it's bright and bold. Around the back, you'll see the same polycarbonate design that you'll find on a lot of Nokia Windows Phones. It's available in white, in orange, yellow or black if you're not too keen on colors. You'll find the 5-megapixel camera on the back and it's repowered by a 3,400 milliamp/hour battery, which should keep it going for a plenty of time. [unk] the latest version of Windows Phone 8 which crucially allows you to have 3 rows of tiles. That makes a lot of sense on a phone this size as you can really cram in a lot more information. It's powered by a 1.7 gigahertz dual-core processor. Again not challenging the quad-core of its bigger brother but it should give plenty of juice of the essentials. It doesn't have the same impressive specs as its bigger brother, the 1520, but at $339 it is a lot more affordable. We'll find out more about the phone when it goes on sale towards the end of the year. I'm Andrew Hoyle for CNET and this is the Nokia Lumia 1320.
