It’s the weekend, and that means yet another rumor concerning Nokia that is making the rounds on the Internet. So according to an anonymous leak, Nokia has apparently got a new line of tablets coming under the brand name Zoom along with some new Lumia smartphones with larger displays.
According to recent rumors, an entire lineup of new Nokia smartphones and tablets will be called “Nokia Zoom”. The idea behind Nokia Zoom reportedly is to bring good cameras to smartphones and tablets, such as the 41 megapixel camera that Nokia’s upcoming flagship smartphone is going to tout.
The rumor has originated from a source that doesn’t have a track record of being right, or even wrong for that matter, so its best to take this information with a grain of salt.
Also another such report comes from MyNokiaBlog, who claims, via their unnamed source, that Nokia is working on a 10.5 inch tablet that’s just 8.5 mm thick, along with an 8.5 inch tablet.
Both dives are supposed to be released in a variety of colors, such as green, black, pink, blue, green, yellow, and white. Also they both will be made of aluminum. These would presumably run Windows 8.
Actually all these new devices seem to be part of the new Nokia Zoom lineup, as the tablets are also supposed to have advanced Zoom cameras, although details were not revealed.
The same article also claims that Nokia will launch a new set of Lumia smartphones with larger screens. Here’s the breakdown: The Lumia 525 will have a 4.5 inch screen like the current Lumia 920, while the Lumia 625 is supposed to have a slighly bigger 4.6 inch screen.
The Lumia 725 will have a 5 inch screen, according to this article, and the Lumia 825 will have an even bigger 5.2 inch display. The Lumia 926 is rumored to have a 5.5 inch screen.
In addition they will probably run Windows RT 8.1 or Win 8.1. The next iteration of Windows Phone will bring support for Full HD resolution (1080×1920), so PPI ratings on these higher screens will be on par with other devices running competing OSes. With all these features larger displays certainly make sense. An additional row of tiles is also rumored.
Finally, in mid-June 2014, Nokia has been rumored to release a phablet with a screen size of between 6 and 7 inches. The tipster apparently told the website, “This information is not a fairy tale … You’ll hear more soon from Nokia.”
Despite this assurance, take this with a very healthy pinch of salt but it’s an exciting lineup that could see Windows Phone finally take on its competitors in the larger display smartphone space.
