Nokia has released big-screen phones in the past, however, the vast majority of the company’s offering cannot be classified as phablet. We have heard before that Nokia is working on a 5.2-inch phablet-like device and finally we are starting to get some details. Apparently, the phone in question is the Nokia Lumia 825. The name suggest a mid-range handset and so do some of the rumored specs. If it’s true, the phone will be aimed mostly at emerging markets.
Nokia Lumia 825 Phablet-like smartphone
The Nokia Lumia 825 is expected to be launched some time in October. The date may be subject to change, though. Everything depends on Microsoft and its GDR3 update to Windows Phone 8 smartphones. If the company manages to finish its work on the update on time, we should see the Lumia 825 in about two months. However, if Microsoft experiences any delays, we may need to wait for the phone until December.
The Nokia Lumia 825 is believed to be a budget smartphone, thus no part of the hardware is expected to be high-end. The phone will supposedly sport a 5.2-inch display, but the resolution is said to be a mere 720p HD. The processor will pack four cores and possibly it will be about 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 based on ARM’s Cortex-A7 architecture. Considering the handset’s destination, it will most likely come with dual-SIM support. Other rumored features include Miracast and NFC wireless connectivity, and the QuickCharge option.
