The age of large screen Windows Phone device is dawning. According to the latest reports on the matter, Finnish telecom giant Nokia is reportedly gearing up to launch its first device to pack a screen larger than 5 inches in September.
In fact, the company has been long rumored to release one such large screen smartphone, but now a recent report over at Reuters pretty much appears to confirm it. The news site is claiming that Nokia is ready to unleash the device at a press event set to take place in New York this September.
You may recall a certain Nokia device codenamed Bandit that was reported to be in development.
And judging by this new report, this handset in question could be none other than Nokia Bandit, which is said to a 6-inch full HD touchscreen display. In fact, WPCentral is claiming that they have managed to confirm that this new device is indeed the one codenamed Bandit.
This particular phone will be powered by a quad-core processor, and will run the GDR3 flavor of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system.
Plus, just as previous rumors have suggested, the phablet is set to arrive with a 20-megapixel camera on the back — one that should provide users with a great camera experience — but the handset will feature a small camera bump.
The device should, nevertheless, pack a thin and slim body.
Nokia is apparently set to announce the smartphone on September 26, and interestingly the company is also said to be planning the release of a tablet the very next day, if reports are to be believed.
File this as a rumor for now, but we should have more information on this matter very soon.
