It's been less than three weeks since Nokia launched its biggest smartphone, the 4.7-inch Lumia 625. Now, the Finnish company is reportedly working on a much larger 5.2-inch smartphone called Lumia 825.
The new report comes almost a month after an unnamed Windows 8 OS based quad-core smartphone was spotted at the GFX benchmark site.
Chinese website Dospy has released key specs of the alleged Lumia 825 phablet. It claimed that this big handset would sport a 5.2-inch screen with HD 1280x720p display resolution and pack Qualcomm's Snapdragon 400 series quad-core processor which would top a CPU speed up to 1.2GHz. The chipset would also come with Adreno 305 graphics engine.
Since the Nokia phablet is reported to feature a two-generation old processor, many believe the new handset won't be branded as th company's flagship model, but rather a mid-range device. According to reports, Lumia 825 is expected to make its debut in October this year.
Rumours are also rife that Nokia might soon bring a new high-end flagship model once Microsoft releases its Windows Phone 8 GDR3 OS version. The new update is said to support full HD 1920x1080p resolution display and is expected to be rolled out by this year end.
Meanwhile, Nokia is reported to release a mid-range 4.7-inch Lumia 625 and an Aluminum-clad flagship handset Lumia 925 (₹33,999) in India later this month. The phones are already listed at online stores. As of now, Lumia 925 can be pre-ordered at Flipkart, whereas Lumia 625 can be booked at Snapdeal for ₹1,000 as advance payment.
