The event invite doesn’t show a lot of details, apart from three hashtags and a desert. The three hashtags: #blazing, #stories, #innovationreinvented seem to point at the powerhouse Lumia 1520, set to come with a quad-core processor.
As for the setting, this points towards a Middle Eastern launch, possibly in Abu Dhabi according to evleaks. Nokia has a few potential spots, with London being a favorite and possibly Finland, considering this will be the last launch for Nokia.
The Lumia 1520 will be the first “phablet” phone on Windows Phone OS, with the six-inch full HD display. The Lumia 1520 is also set to sport a quad-core Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM and 22MP rear camera, not as big as the Lumia 1020 but still a beast.
Nokia may also have the new Windows Sirius RT tablet at the event, this has had some negative feedback already, with moderate specs, Windows RT and a $499 price tag. It doesn’t seem like an optimum purchase, considering some Windows 8 tablets are currently on sale for less.
Still, this is probably the last event we will see with Stephen Elop getting on stage as the Nokia CEO, with 32,000 employees from Nokia jumping ship to Microsoft. Microsoft acquired Nokia for $7.71 billion a few weeks ago and news has come around that the move may have been to stop Nokia from switching to Android.
