Nokia Lumia 1820 promises 2K display, Snapdragon 805 CPU and 3GB of RAM

With all the talk of the Nokia Normandy lately you'd be forgiven for thinking Nokia didn't actually already make, y'know, Windows Phones.

So with Mobile World Congress just five weeks away now's a good time to hear rumours on Twitter of what could be Nokia's next flagship Windows Phone – the Lumia 1820.

And it sounds to be quite a piece of work, though we'll say right at the start we're not sure whether we should actually believe any of it. But we'll get to that, first let's focus on the good stuff.

Like talk of a 5.2in “2K” display – that's a 2048 x 1080-pixel screen to you and me – and the latest Snapdragon 805 processor.

The good news continues with claims of 3GB of RAM, a Lytro camera with Xenon flash, 32GB of flash memory and a 3400mAh battery.

Apparently it'll look not unlike the US-only Nokia Lumia 928, which without any visual reference we can only take to mean very middle-of-the-road Lumia. Which is fine if the insides are as promised.

We will say we previously heard talk of a Lumia 1820 back in November, and it was claimed to have a metal unibody and Lytro-style camera then too, so there's form here at least.

But here's the thing: while we're used to hearing about upcoming phones from the likes of the normally trustworthy @evleaks, this is the debut Twitter offering of someone called @NextLeaks.

We'll just have to wait and see whether we have a rival Twitter-loving mobile insider on our hands, or a flash-in-the-pan charlatan rehashing old rumours.

We're told to expect an announcement at MWC 2014, with availability expected as soon as March, so it won't be too long till we know for sure.
