A GeekBench test was uncovered detailing a new 18.4-inch tablet possibly from Nokia.

Nokia is primed for a major comeback after it released new smartphones recently, one of which sold out in just 60 seconds after it was launched. All stocks of the $245 Nokia 6 were completely wiped out in just one minute after it was officially released in China last Jan. 19.

As impressive as that may be, Nokia seems to be not done yet. The company is planning on an Android tablet that leaves most of the competition behind, at least in terms of size and some specifications.

The GFXBench test shows that the Nokia tablet will run on Android 7.0 Nougat. The operating system is actually listed as Android FIH Edition. FIH Mobile is the company that owns the rights to the Nokia brand fueling talk that the tablet is a Nokia device.

Specifications

According to reports, the 18.4-inch tablet is not just about size. Aside from the latest operating system, the likely Nokia device will have features only seen in some high-end tablets. It will come with the 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC, Qualcomm Adreno 540 GPU, and a 2560 x 1440 pixel touchscreen display with 5 finger gesture support.

The rumored Nokia tablet will also come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal memory. It has two cameras, front and rear, that comes with 12 megapixels each. The cameras will also have UHD (4K) 3840 x 2160 video recording capability. As for connectivity, the Nokia tablet will be capable of 4G LTE, Bluetooth, Compass, NFC, and GPS.

Other Features

Among the Nokia tablet's other impressive features include an accelerometer, barometer, pedometer, compass, gyroscope, light sensor, and proximity sensor.

One report is questioning whether the Geekbench test showed the wrong measurements as it believes the 18-inch sizes reserved for laptops. It must be noted, however, that Samsung has already released a tablet with the same size. The Korean tech giant's huge tablet was released back in Nov. 2015.
