In just barely over one week, Nokia World is set to kick off in Abu Dhabi, bringing us news of what’s rumored to be half-a-dozen-some new devices. We’ve had plenty of opportunities to guess what will be present, and the one real sure thing – the one model no one seems to doubt will actually make an appearance – feels like the Lumia 1520 phablet. Apparently we’re not the only ones anticipating its launch, as we get to see in this leak of some 1520 cases.
This find is only really tempered by the use of a 1520 stand-in (with the very same screenshot we’ve been seeing in renders for a while now), rather than an actual handset, but based on the number of shots we’ve seen of in-the-flesh 1520 hardware, everything looks to be in just the right spot – all that button placement and cut-outs on the back align properly.
We know, it’s not the most attractive case in the world, but that’s hardly the point. Alongside the 1520, next week’s announcement may also include models like the 929, 1320, and 2520 tablet.
