In this gallery, we offer a visual tour of the recently released Nokia Lumia 1320, a mid-range Windows Phone device with a large six inch screen and LTE (4G) connectivity. The smartphone, built around a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor, is available in white, red, black, and yellow, and is now on sale in select markets, with a price tag of £270 / $339 (before taxes and subsidies).
The latest addition to the Lumia range is essentially a low cost version of the Lumia 1520; a similar comparison could be drawn between the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 720, but the device also offers a complimentary choice to the Lumia 625, Nokia's current mid tier hero device.
The lower price point of the Lumia 1320 has been achieved by cutting a few specification points. The most obvious of these are the processor, RAM, and camera, but also notable is the use of a single HAAC microphone and the reduced size of the internal storage. On the plus side the cuts made to the Lumia 1320 are less severe than those for the Lumia 520 and 620. For example, the Lumia 1320's screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 3, usually only found in higher end devices. More importantly, the on board sensor package includes a compass, though not a gyroscope, allowing for full use of the HERE software suit, including augmented reality based functionality.
