Earlier this week we heard about the Nokia Bandit, a big-screen superphone rumored to be coming soon. Now, a report by Reuters has clarified at least part of that rumour. According to the article, Nokia may have several new devices to reveal in September, and at least one of them will have what the anonymous sources call a, “large screen.”
Apparently, Nokia will be holding an event in New York, the same place it revealed the Lumia 1020, sometime next month, but it has yet to officially confirm a date. Reuters sources say Nokia has more than one phone to show off, and one will have a display measuring over 5-inches.
This all fits in with the device known as the Bandit, which could have a massive 6-inch display, a 1080p resolution, and be powered by a quad-core processor. Its release depends on Microsoft’s next version of Windows Phone, as it includes support for full-HD resolutions and quad-core chips. Without the update, known as GDR3, Windows Phone hardware has to make do with dual-core power and 720p displays.
In addition to the Nokia Bandit, we’ve also heard about the Lumia 825, another quad-core Windows Phone, but with a smaller 5.2-inch, 720p display. Lastly, talk of a Nokia tablet running Windows RT 8.1 have been gathering again, and it could join both these smartphones at the New York launch event. Now all we have to do is wait for the official invitations to be sent out.
