The next major Windows Phone device from Nokia has been leaked. Codenamed Bandit, it’s just about one of the most exciting phones we’ve heard about which runs the Microsoft OS, as it features a full high definition screen and a quad-core processor.
According to tech site The Verge, the Nokia Bandit will be made from polycarbonate, just like several of its current top of the range phones, and will be slim and light. The 1080p screen may measure up to 6-inches, putting it in the region of what we expect the Galaxy Note 3 to boast, and equal to other rumoured hardware from HTC and Sony. A quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor could provide the power.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about a quad-core Nokia phone, or a phablet sized device from the company. Recently, the Nokia 825 was leaked, potentially powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 400, and before that, a front panel said to be from a Nokia device with a 6-inch screen was spotted. It seems, once it gets the chance, Nokia is going to make the most of the latest Windows Phone advancements.
The camera, an important part of any modern Nokia, isn’t expected to match the Lumia 1020, but if the report is correct will still be a very respectable 20-megapixels. As the Bandit’s high-end specification relies on future updates of the Microsoft operating system, we won’t be seeing its official release just yet. However, Nokia is apparently already testing the phone with networks in America, and it may be announced before the end of the year.
