Nokia Has A Phablet With 41MP-Camera In The Making [RUMOR]
If the rumors are true, Nokia will release a 'phablet' device equipped with a huge 41MP lens later this year. The phablet (a combination of a phone and a tablet) will feature a large screen that's similar in size to Samsung's Galaxy Note, but will be more advanced.
The report comes from the Financial Times (Paywall) (via The Inquirer) which reports that Nokia, in its efforts to expand its Windows Phone 8-based Lumia smartphone portfolio, is apparently working on a supersized tablet phone measuring five or six inches, which will offer more advanced specification than the Galaxy Note.
The report does not detail what those advanced specs are nor does it mention if the phablet is looking to take on the Galaxy Note, Note 2 or its upcoming successor. However, it's assumed that the phablet will run Windows Phone 8. Nokia appears to be banking heavily on this upcoming phablet as the company hopes the device will give it a jump start in its struggle against Samsung and Apple.
The report says the Finnish phone maker will release its first 'advanced' Pureview Lumia handset later this year, which will come with the same 41MP camera as the Nokia's Pureview 808 smartphone. According to earlier rumors, the smartphone, bizarrely codenamed the Nokia Catwalk, will be highlighted as the high-end sequel to the Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone. It's reported that the device will be the first aluminium clad Nokia smartphone which will be much thinner than its predecessor.
