Nokia's Lumia 1525 is a beefed-up 1520

Sadly, Nokia did not launch the Lumia 1525 in its Lumia IFA 2014 event. It did, however, launch the Nokia Lumia 730 Dual SIM, Nokia Lumia 735 and Nokia Lumia 830.

Nokia is gearing up to launch a flagship phablet running Windows Phone 8.1, according to evleaks. Here we reveal everything we know about the Nokia Lumia 1525, including release date, price and specs. Also see: What to expect from Nokia at IFA 2014.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 cost £550 at the time of our review, although you can now buy it on Amazon at as little as £340, and it's available on a contract from £38 per month. 

The slightly lower-spec Nokia Lumia 930 has also just been announced, and is going on sale at £33 per month from 17 July.

PhoneArena.com also says the Nokia Lumia 1525 has a 6in (1440x2560, 490ppi) touchscreen display, 3GB of RAM, a 3,400mAh battery and support for microSD. And it claims there will be a 25- or 30Mp camera and "some sort of solar-charging display panel".
