The launch of the Lumia 1320 was clearly overshadowed by its sibling, the Lumia 1520. Surely the Lumia 1320 was intended to be a mid-tier phablet for those in need of a big display on a tight budget, but that doesn’t change the fact that the spec differences with the Lumia 1520 made some users prefer to pay the extra cash. We’ve heard rumors of Microsoft’s smartphone plans for 2015, and today we learn more about the successor of the Lumia 1320.
For the purpose of this post, we’ll dub this smartphone the Lumia 1330, even if that data isn’t yet confirmed. New leaks claim that this device will be met with a dramatic overhaul when it comes to its cameras and specifications. The reports mention that the back camera will receive a boost from the current 5 megapixels, to a 14 megapixel PureView sensor, and that the front camera will also receive a boost to Microsoft’s new 5-megapixel selfie shooter. We also hear that even though the display resolution won’t change from 720p on a 5.7-inch display, the processor will now be a Snapdragon 400 chip, along with an Adreno 305 GPU, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage.
No dates were provided for the launch of this smartphone, but we expect MWC to be the closest probability in March.
