A new Nokia device coming August 28

See on Scoop.itTechnology News & Updates

If you thought that Nokia was going to sit quietly after the Lumia 1020 announcement, you were wrong. Remember, when we reported Nokia’s product road-map for the rest of the year. It included Dual SIM Lumia smartphones with Nokia tablet and a phablet. The report said that Nokia is planning to launch a new device every month from August onwards. We don’t know what exactly this means because; we simply can’t have a brand new Lumia smartphone or a feature phone from Nokia every month. It just won’t make any sense but, what it could really mean is more accessories to go with. Having said that, Nokia is sending invites for an event, scheduled for August 28 in Moscow, Russia.

So, will it be a new device? Could it be a Nokia tablet? We doubt that. Nokia Lumia tablet or a Full HD phablet will have to wait until Microsoft brings the GDR3 update for Windows Phone operating system. The update will allow manufacturers to come up with better processors (Quad-Cores rumoured) and 1080p Full HD support. It could just be another feature phone from Nokia at the Moscow event.

Techno Geek silhoutte‘s insight:

Nokia is indeed working on a phablet. The rumour-factory is after this for some time now and now, there’s a strong report from The Verge that says the Nokia phablet is codenamed ‘Bandit’ and, it will pack a 6-inch display with Full HD 1080p support. Furthermore, Bandit is going to be the first Windows Phone device that will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. No word on which Snappy it will house.

The other interesting thing about Nokia’s Bandit or Lumia phablet is its rumour about 20MP shooter. If correct, this should be a powerful phablet from Nokia, it will have Windows GDR3 update for WP8, 6-inch Full HD display, quad-core chip and 20MP camera.

It still has a few months to go. A possible November unveiling is much more likely. The device is said to be in testing phase for AT&T.

Nokia Lumia 625 is official, comes with a 4.7-inch display

See on Scoop.itTechnology News & Updates

Just like Nokia promised, something big has arrived and most of us knew about it.

Techno Geek silhoutte‘s insight:

Nokia Lumia 625 features a 4.7-inch WVGA display with scratch resistant Gorilla Glass 2. It packs a resolution of 480×800 pixels at a pixel density of 201ppi. The display allows sunlight readability, high brightness mode. It has colour enhancement plus, the all important super sensitive touch (can be operated with nails and while wearing gloves). The phone is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor with 512MB RAM. For storage, it provides 8GB of internal memory, which can be expanded externally up to 64GB via microSD card slot. It runs Windows Phone 8 operating system.

The rear gets a 5MP autofocus (with two-stage capture key) camera with LED flash. The camera should work more than fine for the photographer inside you, thanks to the Nokia Smart camera and Cinemagraph. It can record 1080p videos at 30 frames per second. The front houses a VGA camera.

Although, it is good to watch Nokia coming up with big displays for non flagship devices, the 4.7-inch display would have been fantastic for Nokia Lumia 1020. The Windows Phone GDR 3 update should allow manufacturers to bring even bigger displays, the 5-inch phablet types with Full HD resolutions and quad-core processors. So, yay!
