Nokia is reportedly planning to launch its largest 6-inch Lumia 1520 codenamed "Bandit" September 26, 2013, in an event in New York.

While the leading smartphone makers have ruled the market with big screen phablets, Nokia has chosen to tread the smaller path till now. Several leaked reports suggested that the Finnish maker is also planning to join the phablet race soon, but there has been no official confirmation on the news. The leaked images and unnamed sources confirm that the Finnish giant has been working on its own 6-inch Windows Phone smartphone. It may all just be rumors but we'd love to see a bigger screen from Nokia.

Of all the reports confirming the existence of Nokia Lumia 1520, codenamed "Bandit", the latest word from a highly rated source of mobile leaks - @evleaks has revealed that the monster Windows Phone will be launched September 26.

"Nokia Lumia 1520: launches 9/26," read a clear-cut tweet from @evleaks. The popular mobile tipster has a history of accuracy on information about devices and launch dates. So we may have all the reasons to believe that Nokia will officially confirm its entry in the phablet race with the Lumia 1520 soon enough.

Previously, sources also revealed some key specifications of the upcoming Nokia smartphone. Although the information was not revealed in detail, it is expected that the yet-to-be announced "Bandit" smartphone will feature the largest 6-inch full-HD display, Nokia's biggest ever, and run on the Windows Phone GDR3 that will support Snapdragon 800 quad-core chips, as well as 1080P support.

The device will also have 32GB internal storage and an option to expand via microSD card. It will also sport a 20 megapixel camera, of course, after touting its new camera technology in Lumia 925 against leading mobile makers such as Apple and Samsung.

If you may have missed, @evleaks also leaked a high-resolution image of Nokia Lumia 1520, earlier this month.
