Nokia’s Lumia lineup of Windows Phone devices have been relatively successful in the market. The company has long been rumored to be working on a tablet as well as a phablet, which is basically a cross between a smartphone and a tablet. Phablets have displays larger than conventional smartphone but smaller than 7 inch tablets. According to The Verge, Nokia has a 6 inch 1080p display touting phablet up its sleeve, codenamed “Bandit.” Said to be one of many 1080p Windows Phone devices that Nokia will release in the future, the Bandit is reportedly powered by a quadcore Qualcomm processor.
The report further says that the Bandit will have a slight hump at the back, similar to the Lumia 925, to accommodate its 20 megapixel camera. Reportedly fashioned out of polycarbonate, the Bandit is said to be very light and thin. It is said that Nokia Bandit phablet is currently being tested at AT&T and may be launched in the U.S. by the end of this year. Nokia itself has dropped no hints of an upcoming phablet, let alone one with a full HD 1080p display. If the rumor does turn out to be true, it is possible that the device might be launched around the holiday season.
