CGC introduces Nokia Lumia 1520 in Qatar

Consolidated Gulf Co. (CGC), the distributor for Nokia in Qatar has announced the local availability of the new Lumia 1520, Nokia’s first 6-inch Lumia smartphone. The Nokia Lumia 1520 comes with a 1080p Full HD screen with an enhanced start screen featuring an additional 3rd column of live tiles, allowing people to get to their favourite apps faster with less scrolling.

“With the Nokia Lumia 1520, the first 6-inch Lumia smartphone, we’re significantly expanding our Lumia portfolio applying our industry leading design. With our latest imaging innovations and the best from Microsoft brought to a new form factor, we’re helping people to capture the world around them and do more on the go,” said Vithesh Reddy, General Manager, Nokia Lower Gulf.

Thanks to the 20MP PureView camera with optical image stabilization, oversampling technology and zooming capabilities, people can easily capture and edit high quality pictures and tell better stories. Nokia Lumia 1520 brings personal stories to life with Nokia’s the new Nokia Storyteller and Nokia Camera. The bigger screen also makes it easy to use the Microsoft Office on the go.

Commenting on the local launch, Tawfeeq Salem, CFO of CGC said: “The evolving consumer landscape in Qatar have expressed interest in high-end phablets over the recent past. The launch of the Nokia Lumia 1520 in Qatar is testament to our continuous efforts to deliver on the pulse of the local consumer demand and we are confident consumers will embrace the benefits of a large screen on the latest phablet available in the market”.

Telling stories better on a large screen

Creating the best high quality images gets even easier with Nokia Lumia 1520 and its 20MP PureView camera with optical image stabilization. Building on the imaging innovations and experiences introduced with Lumia 1020 and now optimized for a larger screen, the Lumia 1520 comes with the latest imaging innovations from Nokia, including the new Nokia Camera. Nokia Camera integrates the most popular imaging modes – Pro, Smart, and video – into one seamless picture-taking experience. As with the Lumia 1020, the images can tell several stories with the camera’s zooming, reframing and cropping capabilities, and dual capture of low and high resolution pictures.

For the outstanding video experience, the Nokia Lumia 1520 camera captures full HD video with crystal-clear audio. The phone also boasts Nokia Rich Recording with four microphones, providing directional stereo recording capability to capture distortion free audio from the preferred direction for accurate and clear sound.

For the first time, PureView imaging meets HERE maps with the launch of Nokia Storyteller merging the two signature Lumia experiences together seamlessly. Re-live memories in a new, dynamic, and interactive way with Nokia Storyteller that automatically integrates pictures with HERE location information into a chronological picture journey on a map. Zooming out of a picture reveals points of interest tagged to the map with contact info, user reviews and even driving directions. Viewing the images on the map makes memories truly come alive with auto playback of video, animated images and sequential movement in a still picture.

Enhanced start screen for seeing more

A third column of the Windows Phone live tiles on Nokia Lumia 1520 allows people to bring more of their important content to the start screen and see more of their calendar, email, notes and music at a glance. Also, an update to the Nokia Glance screen brings notifications on missed calls and new emails to the standby screen.

Featuring integrated wireless charging, the Nokia Lumia 1520 takes advantage of the new portable wireless charging plate DC-50 from Nokia to help stay charged easily on the go.
