It's the weekend, and that means yet another rumor concerning Nokia's plans to release tablets and larger smartphones and phablets is making the rounds on the Internet. We have been hearing rumors about Nokia working on a Windows 8 tablet for over a year now and even posted our own concept for such a device. The phablets reports are more recent but they have gotten a lot of media attention in the last few months.
Our concept for a Nokia Windows RT tablet, which we posted over a year ago.
The latest such report comes from MyNokiaBlog, who claims, via their unnamed source, that Nokia is working on a 10.5 inch tablet that's just 8.5 mm thick, along with an 8.5 inch tablet. Both will come in a variety of colors (Green, Black, Pink, Blue, Green, Yellow, White) and both will be made of aluminum. The tablets are also supposed to have advanced Zoom cameras, although details were not revealed.
The same article also claims that Nokia will launch a new set of Lumia smartphones with larger screens. Here's the breakdown: The Lumia 525 will have a 4.5 inch screen like the current Lumia 920, while the Lumia 625 is supposed to have a slighly bigger 4.6 inch screen. The Lumia 725 will have a 5 inch screen, according to this article, and the Lumia 825 will have an even bigger 5.2 inch display. The Lumia 926 is rumored to have a 5.5 inch screen.
Finally, this rumor claims that in June 2014, Nokia will release a phablet with a screen size of between 6 and 7 inches. The tipster apparently told the website, "This information is not a fairy tale … You’ll hear more soon from Nokia." We should soon find out if this info is indeed correct.
