After several leaks that have already surfaced, it is now expected that Nokia will unveil a Lumia phablet on October 22 at a Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi.

A listing on Nokia’s official Tmall shop (run by Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba) for the Nokia Lumia 1520 has all but confirmed this, as spotted by Engadget. The handset, which is retailing for CNY4,999 ($820) is listed as arriving in October 2013 — and at six inches with a 1080p screen, it is truly a gigantic smartphone.

The page does not have images of the Nokia Lumia 1520 at the time of writing, but a poster highlights the fact that it runs on a Snapdragon 800 processor and has a 20-megapixel Pureview camera.
