When AT&T announced its launch plans for the Nokia Lumia 1520, the big blue carrier said that a 32GB model would be joining its 16GB sibling "in the near future." It looks like the future is now, folks, because AT&T has started selling a Lumia 1520 with 32GB of built-in storage in its online store.
The 32GB Lumia 1520 is priced at $249.99 with a two-year commitment or $639.99 full retail. To compare, the 16GB model costs $199.99 with a contract and $584.99 without. Outside of the pricing and storage differences, these two Lumia 1520 variants are exactly the same, right down to their 6-inch 1080p displays and 20-megapixel PureView camera. One other tidbit that's worth noting is that while the 16GB Lumia 1520 is available in black, red, white and yellow, consumers that want to double their internal storage with the 32GB variant currently have black as their sole color option.
Even though it's arriving a couple of months after the Lumia 1520's initial launch, it's still nice to see the 32GB variant of Nokia's newest Windows Phone finally hit AT&T's virtual shelves. Both the 16GB and 32GB variants do include a microSD card slot for user-expandable storage, but some folks just plain want as much memory on their smartphone as they can muster, and that's where this 32GB Lumia 1520 comes in.

UPDATE: AT&T has officially announced the availability of the 32GB Nokia Lumia 1520. Just as I noted earlier, the more capacious Lumia 1520 is priced at $249.99 with a two-year contract and $639.99 without, while the 16GB model is $199.99 and $584.99, respectively. AT&T Next pricing for the 32GB Lumia 1520 is set at $32 per month with a Next 12 or $24.62 per month with Next 18. AT&T has also confirmed that the 32GB Lumia 1520 will be offered only in matte black and is available exclusively online.
