Nokia Lumia 1030 and Sony Togari Phablets Caught on Camera, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Watch Your Back
It is too beautiful to be true! Three unannounced terminals were caught in the same photo. We are talking about two Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rivals, the Nokia phablet, unofficially dubbed Lumia 1030, caught on camera next to Sony Togari, a 6+ inch smartphone, and HTC M4, a mid-end smartphone that is yet to be confirmed.
Of course, we might be looking at a fake photo, thus we are advising you to take the rumor with a pinch of salt.
The rumor mill talks about a Nokia phablet for a while now, a device that comes with a stylus and a display bigger than 5 inches. The alleged Windows Phone 8-powered Nokia Lumia 1030 (which aims at Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3) will reportedly be launched after the GDR3 udapte for Windows Phone goes live, which bring support for full HD display. Well, unless Nokia rushes and launches a 720 phablet. As you can see in the photos below, the Nokia Lumia 1030 can accommodate three medium tiles on the same row, an aspect that is not supported by the current Windows Phone Lumia smartphones.
There’s also a HTC M4 in the same picture. Rumor has it that the HTC M4 is a mid ranger that packs a 4.3-inch 720p display, 2 GB of RAM a dual-core GPU (most likely a Snapdragon 400 unit), 16 GB of internal storage and a 1,700 mAh battery.
Least, but not last, we’ve also spotted a devices that looks like a huge Sony Xperia Z. It seems that it’s the Sony Togari, a 6.44-inch phablet that packs a full HD display, 2 GB of RAM, quad-core CPU (probably the highly appreciated Snapdragon 600 unit) and a 13 megapixel sensor.
It seems that the phablet segment will be very crowded this year. So far, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was the only popular product of the phablet segment, but with rumors saying that Nokia, Sony and HTC are planning powerful 5+ inch smartphones, the phablet of the South Korean company will have some powerful rivals this year.
What are you expecting from the Sony Togari? Will the Nokia Lumia 1030 phablet will be able to raise Windows Phone’s popularity? Please shout out in the comments section below.
