Nokia's allegedly upcoming big-screen Lumia 1520 phone may have taken its latest bow courtesy of a leaked image.

Displayed by Twitter account @evleaks, the image shows two yellow Lumia smartphones with the title "Nokia Lumia 1520, 2013." The actual display size is difficult to discern in the photo, but it does appear fairly massive.

Codenamed Bandit, the Lumia 1520 will reportedly offer a 6-inch 1080p screen, giving it the largest and sharpest display among all Windows Phone handsets. Bandit could be the first of many 1080p Windows Phone devices to come from Nokia. The 1520 will also reportedly include a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor, a 20-megapixel rear camera, and be built with a polycarbonate body.

Nokia could unveil the 1520 by the end of September at a New York event, blog site Windows Phone Central said late last month. The Finnish phone maker is reportedly planning a launch event in New York for September 26 and 27.
