A leaked picture suggests that Nokia is working on its biggest smartphone ever featuring a 6-inch screen.
Nokia is on a product launching spree, rolling out as many as seven handsets in a span of just four months. Now, a leaked picture suggests that the Finnish company is working on its biggest smartphone ever, which will compete against the likes of Samsung Galaxy Note III, Sony Xperia Z Ultra and Huawei Ascend Mate.
The leaked photo comes courtesy a Chinesemicroblogging website, which has leaked also several devices in the past. The image shows just the front panel with the Nokia logo on top and the standard three-key layout of Windows Phone smartphones at the bottom. The display has space for a front-facing camera and very thin bezels on the side. The report by Weibo user ICTech claims that the screen size is 6-inch and the device is already under mass production in China.
Microsoft is due to release its GDR3 update for Windows Phone mobile operating system. This update will bring several new features to the platform, including support for quad-core processors and 1080presolution displays. It will also introduce another row of home screen Live Tiles, which will help phablets make full use of the big screen.
Earlier, a blurry image of this device did rounds in tech circles, with rumours saying it will be named Lumia 1030. A report by UK’s Mobile Today says Nokia will unveil its 6-inch phablet in the fourth quarter of this year, priced between $620 and $780.
