Nokia Lumia 1320 unveiled with 6-inch screen and cheap price tag

Lumia 1320 Colors

Alongside the first large screen Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 1520, we also saw a cheaper version announced at Nokia World. The Lumia 1320 is it, and although it shares the same 6-inch display as its sister phone, the resolution is lower. This, along with some other spec alterations, has dropped the Lumia 1320 price to a more reasonable level, making it perfect for emerging markets.

The Lumia 1320’s screen has a 720p resolution, but is still one of Nokia’s ClearBlack IPS LCD panels, so like the Lumia 920 it should still look great. Inside there’s a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor with 1GB of RAM, bringing it into line with Nokia’s older Lumia phones, rather than the pumped-up Lumia 1520. It also has 8GB of internal storage backed up by 7GB of free SkyDrive cloud storage, and there’s a microSD card slot that can provide up to a further 64GB worth of space.

Like the other specs, the main camera isn’t up to the Lumia 1520’s high standards, and is instead rated at 5 megapixels, but is still capable of recording 1080p video at 30fps. There’s also a secondary front-facing VGA camera. Nokia has added 4G LTE connectivity to the Lumia 1320, which is good news, and other features include Bluetooth 4.0 LE and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. There’s also a built-in FM radio and support for HD Voice, while the battery is rated at a whopping 3,400mAh which should deliver up to 21 hours of 3G talk time.

The body has a rounded design and it comes in several vibrant colors, including orange, yellow, black, and white, which CEO Stephen Elop explained are intended to appeal to a “younger crowd”. So, all this should mean the phone comes in pretty cheaply, right? It does, as the quoted price for the unconnected model is $340. That’s less than half the Lumia 1520. However, at the moment we’re not expecting a U.S. release for the Nokia Lumia 1320. It’s currently set to launch in China and Vietnam in early 2014, with other Asian markets, India, and Europe to follow.
