Nokia Lumia 825
Nokia is rumoured to be working on a smartphone with a rather large display, reports GSMArena citing a report on Dospy.
The smartphone in question is being referred to as the Lumia 825, and it is rumoured to sport a large 5.2-inch display with a resolution of 720p. If these rumours hold true, it will be the first smartphone by the Finnish giant to sport a display larger than 5 inches. As for the processor on the Lumia 825 smartphone, the report states that it will feature a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and the only other information on this smartphone is that it may be released in October this year.
The leaked spec sheet
Reports and rumours about Nokia developing smartphones with larger displays have been around for sometime now.
Last month, a photo of the front panel of the 6-inch Nokia Lumia handset leaked. Notable in the picture is an incredibly thin bezel – one of the thinnest that we have seen in a phablet. There also appears to be a tiny hole where we think a front-facing camera will fit in.
The Lumia phablet is slated to be a direct competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy Mega series and Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra. The phablet is set to run on the latest (at the time) version of Windows Phone 8.
Back in June, we saw reports stating that Nokia has been working on two phablets. The report states that one of the phablets, which is expected to be launched between September and October this year, will come with a camera similar to that of Lumia 925 and will carry a 5.5-inch or 6-inch display. We’re assuming that the leaked picture shows this phablet.
The second smartphone, which will be launched by February 2014, is expected to feature a better camera than the first phablet, with a higher megapixel count (presumably the same camera featured on the Lumia 1020); it could also have a Lytro-style camera, which lets you adjust focus after shooting an image. Nokia has been rumoured to be using Pelican Imaging’s 16-lens array to improve the photography experience on smartphones.[source:Tech2]
