Good news for Windows Phone fans in Brazil, as Nokia plans to launch some of its high-end smartphones soon. Unlike previous occasions when Nokia smartphones were released in the country more than 6 months after being officially announced, this time, customers in Brazil will have access to new smartphones earlier than expected.
WMPoweruser reports that Nokia has already sent invitations to a press event that will take place on February 17 in Sao Paolo, Brazil. This is just 2 days ahead of Valentine’s Day, which is why the invitation has been designed with related content.
Unfortunately, there are no mentions of any smartphone releases, but sources close to the matter claim that Nokia plans to introduce the Lumia 1320 and 1520 in Brazil.
There’s no telling whether or not the phablets will be available for purchase right away or a few days later, but we suspect that Nokia will disclose more details on availability on February 17.
Obviously, the Lumia 1520 will be the more expensive of the two, while the Lumia 1320 is aimed at those who are looking for a more affordable Windows Phone phablet.
The main differences between the two phablets are the processor, memory and main camera. The Lumia 1520 comes packed with a powerful 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, and Adreno 330 graphics processing unit, 2GB of RAM and 16/32GB of internal memory.
The smartphone also boasts an impressive 20-megapixel PureView camera with Carl Zeiss optics, OIS, autofocus, dual-LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording.
The Lumia 1320 is equipped with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, an Adreno 305 graphics processing unit, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory.
On the back, the phablet sports a 5-megapixel photo snapper with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, while in the front, there’s a secondary VGA camera for video calls.
