Chinese technology publication, ICTech has published an image of the alleged front panel of the first Nokia Lumia phablet on its Weibo account. The image clearly shows a slim bezel with Nokia branding on top beneath the earpiece. The publication also claims that Nokia has already started mass-production of the device and it would feature a 6-inch display. The image of the slim bezel also shows space left for a front camera and the sensor.
Not much is known about the device except the leaked front bezel image. But if the rumours are true then we might get to hear more about the phablet, soon.
It's worth pointing out that a Financial Times report had said that Nokia intends to launch a number of flagship devices later this year, including a supersized tablet phone. The publication had cited people with knowledge of the company's plan to report the development, who said that the phablet would be similar in size to the Galaxy Note but will have advanced specifications.
If the report turns out to be true, then we can expect Nokia's phablets to compete with the likes of Samsung's Galaxy Note series smartphones and the Mega series phablets.
Meanwhile, Nokia earlier announced the launch of the Lumia 625 that sports a 4.7-inch LCD screen, the biggest seen on a Nokia phone yet, and includes 4G connectivity. The device is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor alongside 512MB RAM and 8GB internal storage that can be expanded by another 64GB via microSD card. The device includes a 5-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front-facing camera. The 4.7-inch screen sports a 480x800 pixel resolution. The Nokia Lumia 625 runs on Windows Phone 8 with Nokia's Amber update and is powered by a 2,000mAh battery.
