It seems Nokia is already working on a 6-inch Lumia Windows Phone device. Sina Weibo user @ictech today leaked an alleged image of a display panel of a 6-inch Lumia Windows Phone device. As you can see in the image above, the device has a very thin bezel with usual Windows Phone standard buttons in the bottom. Since the image is from production already, there are two possibilities. Either Nokia is making some prototypes for testing or the device has already entered mass production.
Few months back, FT speculated about such device as below,
Those with knowledge of the company’s plans said that the most innovative will be a device that can work as a phone and a tablet – known as a “phablet” – similar in size but with more advanced specifications to Samsung’s popular Galaxy Note.
This will be the Finnish group’s first move with Lumia into the larger screened mobile smart devices market, where rivals such as Apple and Samsung have already established a dominant position.
With Windows Phone GDR3 update supporting 1080p screens is coming in next few months, I will not be surprised if Nokia releases this 6-inch Lumia phablet by this holiday season.
What do you think of such device from Nokia?
