Lumia 1320 joins the pack as cheaper Nokia offering

Nokia gives us a not-so-unexpected surprise

Nokia has revealed the Lumia 1320, a low-end smartphone which was bandied about previously with the codename "Batman."

The device arrived during Nokia World, shown off as part of the Nokia Beamer app which allows Nokia users to share screens between one another. As expected, it's specs are comparable to the Lumia 625.

The biggest selling point of the low-end device is it's screen, which like the 625 before it, tips the scale on the larger end, coming with a 6-inch display that's pegged at 720p.

Under the hood the Lumia 1320 houses a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, a handy microSD slot and 4G connectivity.

Not so fancy

In the camera department the Lumia 1320 is no where near as well equipped as the 20MP toting Lumia 1520, with this budget offering lumped with a 5MP rear snapper which Nokia claims will shoot 1080p video, although we're wary of the quality.

There's also a 0.3MP camera, although bar the odd video call it's probably worth avoiding.

The Nokia Lumia 1320 features removable back covers, meaning this could be tiered more towards the youth market, a demographic that will appreciate the microSD slot and the range of colors it arrives in: orange, yellow, black and white.

Under that rear cover lives a sizable 3400mAh battery, and the plastic housing is a rather chunky 164.5 x 85.9 x 9.79mm and weighs a wrist crippling 220g.

Despite the 720p display, you're still getting the necessary space with the six inch scren to have the extra column of Live Tiles on the home screen a la the Lumia 1520 - happy face.

The Lumia 1320 will be coming to China and Vietnam early next year, with other markets to follow - we hope this means the likes of Europe and the US.

In terms of a the Lumia 1320 price it will set you back around $339 (around £210, AU$350) which certainly places it at the lower end of the market.
