Multiple reports have suggested that Nokia is currently working on a new phablet device — not its 4.7-inch, recently-announced Lumia 625 — but this is the first time that a leak has produced visible evidence. An image of the purported 6-inch phablet surfaced today, showing off what is expected to be the front panel of the new Nokia Lumia phablet.
Chinese site ICtech released the image via its Weibo account and given the publication’s solid track record with leaks, the image is likely valid. The publication also noted that Nokia is already in the midst of mass-producing the device, which will reportedly feature a massive 6-inch display. As the image shows, the device will also offer an extremely slim bezel along with a front-facing camera.
If the rumor proves true, the large screen will place Nokia’s newest device among the largest phablet handsets on the market, alongside devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Mega series. Considering that the display seen in the image easily dwarfs the hand holding it, the report appears accurate.
Not much else is known about the handset as this point, though speculation indicates that the device could surface as early as the end of this year.
