Earlier @evleaks announced that a new phone listed as the “Lumia 1525” would be coming to T-mobile soon, we speculated that it was most probably a Lumia 1520 refresh with WP 8.1 and new colors. Apparently we were pretty right about that except that according to @evleaks it will also carry a new Soc chip, rocking the latest Snapdragon 801 processor.
The Lumia 1525 from Nokia by Microsoft is a Windows Phone 8.1-powered 1520 with the SoC upgraded to a Snapdragon 801. Besides T-Mobile, it’s also going to — wait for it, wait for it — AT&T and Verizon.
Currently the Lumia 1520 has a Snapdragon 800 processor, which is quite decent in itself; but a refresh is always nice. Unfortunately a refresh might mean that we won’t be seeing a newer version for a while longer as its just been given a second breath of life.
