The retailer is only offering 24-month contracts with Vodafone at the moment, starting at £38 a month, which provides unlimited minutes and texts, as well as 2GB of data and no upfront cost.

If you pay a £79.99 upfront cost instead, you can get an increased data allowance of 6GB on Vodafone's 4G network instead of 3G for the same monthly cost.

Further up the pricing structure, there is a £48 a month option with a £19.99 upfront fee, which includes 12GB of 4G data on top of unlimited calls and texts.

Meanwhile, reports have emerged that the device is currently delayed in the US from a proposed 22 November release to December 2.

The Lumia 1520 is the first Windows Phone device to use a proper 1080p Full HD screen and comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 20-megapixel PureView camera, as well as the new 'Nokia Camera' app and functionality.
