Nokia’s intentions to introduce a large screen device are fairly obvious by now. It has been long rumored that the Finnish smartphone company is working on a phablet class device that would bring a large 6 inch screen to Nokia’s Lumia hardware. The image leaked earlier today corroborates all that we know about the device. Placed next to the Lumia 1020, the handset appears positively gargantuan.
With the screen switched on, we also seem to be getting our first look at the upcoming GDR3 update that would bring support for 1080p screens, faster processors. To make use of all that screen real estate, Windows Phone will now allow you to place a double wide tile next to a medium sized tile. Additionally, a third row of tiles can be placed on the homescreen. The leaked image closely resembles an image that had earlier this year that claimed to depict the front panel for the upcoming device. Additionally, the engraved proto.nokia.com text is true for all Nokia prototype devices.
It also appears that the phone will ship with a smart cover accessory of sorts. We should expect to see Qi based wireless charging built into said accessory. Rumored specifications for the handset include a quad core Snapdragon CPU, 20MP PureView camera, 6 inch 1080p display all built into a polycarbonate shell. The device is expected to be announced at an event late next month alongside the company’s first Windows RT tablet. We’ll keep you posted as and when we find more details.
