    Nokia Rumored to Be Planning Phablet Release by June, Set to Compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Note Devices

    Nokia Rumored to Be Planning Phablet Release by June, Set to Compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Note DevicesFinnish manufacturer Nokia could be invading the phablet space in a couple months, as the company is believed to be working on a device that could compete against Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2, as well as the upcoming Galaxy Note 3.

    This is nothing new for those familiar with earlier stories of the “Juggernaut”, a Nokia phablet with a 5-inch-plus display. The new rumor, which comes from the Financial Times, ups the ante by claiming that its sources for the report are people who may be actually close to Nokia. This will possibly mark a first for Windows Phone 8 devices which, at this point, only support screens no larger than 4.8 inches and pixel resolutions no greater than 1280 x 768.

    This is due to limitations on the Windows Phone 8 platform, although this rumored device could change the way we look at Windows Phone devices.



    The Financial Times’ sources claim that Nokia will be releasing a potential rival to the Galaxy Note 3 (and Galaxy Note 2), which will come with a 5-inch display or larger, as well as improved hardware specifications and a stylus pen not unlike Samsung’s S Pen. This stylus may be unique in the sense that it may come with different calibrations for sensitivity and special apps that focus on the handwriting and drawing aspects of stylus use.

    This device may be out as early as July, or maybe even in June, according to reports. As for other Nokia releases, the sources claim that Nokia will release its rumored 41-megapixel Windows Phone flagship in July, while a thinner and lighter Lumia 920 with enhanced specs may also be out that same month.
