Leaked Nokia product codenames hint at more Windows Phones

Nokia is reportedly planning on revealing a Windows RT tablet in the coming months, but several more product codenames leaked on Wednesday likely hint at future Windows Phone devices from the Finnish smartphone developer.

The @evleaks Twitter account, which is known for releasing accurate information and photos of upcoming mobile devices, tweeted the following message about Nokia's future products, though no information was provided regarding what each of the codenames may refer to:

Despite the lack of clarification from the reputed tipster, a rumor from Tuesday indicates the product codenamed "Bandit" will be a 6-inch Windows Phone device, probably the phablet that's been rumored for so long. That smartphone will reportedly release alongside the GDR3 update for Windows Phone 8, which will provide support for 1080p screens. Additionally, @evleaks previously revealed Nokia was working on a product codenamed "Rivendale," though that was likely a typo of "Rivendell." Speculation mounted that the codename referred to an upcoming Nokia tablet.

Recent rumors indicated that tablet would be a Windows RT device with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 system on a chip; it will also reportedly be the first Windows RT tablet to feature USB 3.0 support. The tablet could be revealed as soon as Sept. 26 at a New York press event.
