For those pre-ordering an AT&T Nokia Lumia 1520, if you want to enjoy wireless charging you’ll need to pick up a wireless charging case. That’s the bad news. The good news is that Incipio is now listing a wireless charging case for the Lumia 1520 on their website. The bad news part two is that the case is out of stock.
The charging case is listed as being made of rigid Plextonium (high density plastic) and has all your customary cut-outs for the 1520’s buttons, ports and microphones. However, based on the pictures, it looks as though you’ll have to remove the case to access the Lumia 1520’s expansion card slot.
It also looks as though the Incipio case adds a bit of bulk the Lumia 1520. The recessed camera opening is described as having flash diffusing rings but also makes the case look twice as thick as the charging case for the Lumia 1020.
The Incipio Lumia 1520 case is running $49.99 and is only being offered in black. It’s listed as “out of stock” with no availability date listed. You can find all the details here at Incipio’s website.
While disappointing that AT&T opted to remove the built in wireless charging abilities on the Lumia 1520, will those picking up the 1520 opt for a wireless charging case or be content with the old school plug-n-charge method?
