Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 Phablet Rumors; 40-Megapixel Phone And Updated Lumia 920, Too?
Nokia has been cranking out Lumia phones at a steady pace and they have become favorites in the Windows phone world. Nokia will reportedly launch a few more flagship Lumia smartphones this year. The lineup is expected to include the first Windows Phone 8 phablet, a Lumia with a 40-megapixel camera, and an updated Lumia 920.
Sources told the Financial Times that Nokia would be entering the phablet world this year. The Nokia phablet reportedly would be "similar in size but with more advanced specifications to Samsung's popular Galaxy Note." Microsoft has held a tight leash on the kind of hardware that can run Windows Phone, and the current iteration of Windows Phone 8 does not support full 1080p HD resolutions or 5-inch displays. A report surfaced last week that claims Microsoft is planning to release an update for Windows Phone 8 this year that will add support for 1080p resolutions and 5-inch and higher display sizes. The sources described the phablet as Nokia's most "innovative" smartphone to launch this year.
The report claims Nokia will launch a Lumia smartphone that will put major focus on image quality. The Lumia is expected to use Nokia's Pureview imaging technology and be equipped with a 40-megapixel camera. The smartphone will reportedly be the first quad-core powered Windows Phone 8 smartphone. The reported release date for this smartphone is sometime in July.
The sources also claim that Nokia will launch a "lighter and more advanced version of the existing flagship Nokia Lumia 920." This sounds like it could be the Nokia Lumia "Catwalk" leak we just reported or the recently leaked Verizon Nokia Lumia 928, and not an actual redesigned Lumia 920.
Take all of these rumors with a grain of salt as Nokia has once again said "no comment" when asked about their upcoming smartphones. If the rumors are true, Nokia still has quite a few exciting tricks up its sleeves this year.
