Nokia is heavily tipped to launch the first Windows Phone device with a six-inch display later this month: images of the Nokia Lumia 1520 have already leaked and now so have the specs and indeed, its potential launch date.

As well as a 6-inch full HD display, the device is believed to have 2GB of RAM, a serious Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 32GB of built-in storage and, if that weren't enough, a MicroSD slot for further expansion.

As well as a bigger, better screen, the phone will herald the first major update to the Windows Phone operating system. As well as support for full HD, the reworked OS will also feature a new Driving mode for using a handset in the car.

Nokia is also currently working on a Windows-powered tablet and there's a strong possibility that the company's first slate could also debut at the same event.

Windows Phone devices have struggled to attract apps from a number of the world's biggest internet and tech companies, most notably Instagram and Google, but in just over a year, the phones have managed to knock BlackBerry off the number-three spot in terms of global smartphone sales.

Whether or not it can build on this progress remains to be seen, but in terms of imaging technology, Nokia Lumia Windows Phones remain unrivaled in terms of their photography capabilities and for some consumers, this performance is proving enough to tempt them to make the leap of faith.
