The age of full HD, 1080p resolution Windows Phone smartphones is finally upon us. There have already been reports about Nokia’s 6-inch smartphone, codenamed Bandit.
And the latest one the matter is that the phablet is already in testing.
Microsoft is adding in support for higher pixel resolutions in the upcoming Windows Phone 8 GDR, and Nokia has long been rumored to be planning the launch of a large, Windows Phone 8 smartphone.
Now is appears that some more information on the matter is now available.
The upcoming device, supposedly codenamed Bandit, is now said to have been confirmed with a 6-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering a full HD resolution, being the first out of a long range of 1080p handsets powered by Microsoft’s OS.
The Verge is reporting that the upcoming handset will be housing a quad-core Snapdragon processor inside, along with a 20 megapixel (or higher) camera on the back. Both these elements mean that this is a high end device, if not an outright new flagship smartphone.
Additionally, Nokia Bandit is also reportedly very lightweight and thin. The device is being tested with Windows Phone 8 GDR3 as of this writing.
The new report also has some pointers about the Nokia Lumia 925 — the company is expanding availability of this particular smartphone, and it is set to become available for purchase in the US on more wireless carriers in the near future.
AT&T is said to be currently testing the smartphone.
