FINNISH PHONE MAKER Nokia will unveil its rumoured Lumia 825 phablet device in New York next month, Reuters reported on Wednesday.
Citing the usual "sources familiar with Nokia's plans", Reuters reported that Nokia will unveil its rumoured phablet device in September.
Reuters said its anonymous sources were unable to reveal any further details on the Lumia 825 phablet device. However, from previous tipster rumours, we can expect the phone to feature a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor along with a 5.2in HD 720p display. It will also run Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system, unsurprisingly.
Nokia has apparently got more than the so-called Lumia 825 up its sleeve too, with the Reuters report adding that "Nokia has developed more than one new mobile device" for the glitzy New York unveiling, possibly its leaked Windows RT tablet or its mooted HD 1080p Windows Phone device codenamed the Bandit.
If Nokia's rumoured Windows RT tablet makes an appearance, we know what we can expect from that too. Speculation suggests it will feature a 2.15GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, a HD 1080p screen, Windows 8.1, full sized USB ports and 32GB of internal storage. Like Microsoft's Surface Pro tablet, it reportedly will also come with an attachable keyboard and included stylus.
As for the Nokia Bandit, which we're really hoping is just a codename, expect a full HD 1080p display, a quad-core processor and a 20MP rear-facing Pureview camera. Given the handset's top-end specifications that are not presently supported by Microsoft's software, it's likely to ship with an updated version of the Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system.
Nokia was not immediately available for comment. µ
