Nokia phablet and lower-priced version of Lumia 920 could arrive this fall

A more pocket-friendly version of the Nokia Lumia 920, as well as a phablet by the Finnish phone maker are purportedly coming sometime between September to October of this year. It is, however, still unclear if they will have the same launch date.


The first of these two devices will purportedly pack a design that is similar to the Nokia Lumia 720, but with a thinner profile and less overall weight. The unreleased handset is believed to come with a 4.7-inch WXGA CBD AMOLED display, an 8 MP Carl Zeiss camera with a maximum aperture of F/1.9 for optimal images even in low light conditions. Unfortunately, said camera will not have an Optical Image Stabilizer, which means that some blurring may occur, especially in less-than-ideal situations. It may also have a similar processor and GPU with the Lumia 920. As for its price, the handset could target the same group of consumers as the less-expensive iPhone.

On the other hand, the Nokia phablet will possibly come with a display measuring around 5 to 5.6 inches diagonally. It may also have the same camera that is found on the Lumia 925.

In a few months, Nokia may introduce improvements to this phablet, specifically in terms of its camera, which could be a 16-lens lytro style camera. This improved phablet, for its part, is speculated to be due in February.

Rumors of the two devices (the phablet and the less-expensive Lumia 920) began last April, when the Financial Times reported that Nokia will have four new additions to the Lumia Windows Phone 8 series. Apart from the phablet and the lower-priced version of the Lumia 920, Nokia was also rumored back then to be preparing the launch of the Nokia EOS and Nokia Catwalk. The Catwalk, also known as the Lumia 925, was already unveiled last month. Meanwhile, the Nokia EOS, which is believed to feature a 41 MP camera, is expected to make its first public appearance in July.
