On Thursday, an image of an upcoming Nokia smartphone surfaced, showing what very well may be Nokia’s first phablet smartphone. The images came from Windows Phone Central, the same publication that confirmed the specs from a leak issued by The Verge detailing the purported 6-inch phablet.
According to the image, the new purported Nokia device will certainly be worthy of the phablet moniker, as the large handset easily dwarfs the sizable Lumia 1020. Unfortunately, besides showing off a red casing design, the image does little to bolster the claims of previous spec leaks.
The Lumia phablet — which may be released under the title Lumia 1520 — will supposedly feature a 6-inch 1080p display, a quad-core processor, a 20MP rear-facing camera and will run on an updated version of Windows Phone (GDR3) aimed at supporting 1080p displays.
The leaked photo actually suggests that the purported Lumia could support GDR3, as the display appears to be housing three columns’ worth of tiles on the Windows Phone home screen, a feature that will be added in the next Windows Phone update. Of course, it’s worth noting that this image has yet to be confirmed and could have easily been tampered with to align with previous rumors.
According to previous reports, Nokia will be expected to unveil the new phablet sometime later next month.
