With time, more and more rumors surfacing around the upcoming Nokia phablet. Earlier, the device was spotted by AdDuplex, a data collection firm that reports Windows Phone device news. AdDuplex spotted a few unknown devices codenamed RM-937, RM-927 and RM-940, which reported a scale factor of 150, suggesting that a device in question may feature a 1080p display. Now, the similar device by Nokia – RM-940 – appeared in a filing on Bluetooth SIG that adds more juice to all the rumors.
RM-927 is a model expected to be launched on Verizon while RM-940 will be on AT&T. The RM-937 model is expected to be the international model which will debut in other parts of the world. The model which appeared in the filing is RM-940, but the interesting thing about the filing is that the device listed a few of Qualcomm chipsets including MSM8974; MSM8x26; MSM8926; MSM8x10; MSM8916; MSM8x12; APQ8074. After taking a closer look at the model numbers, some of them belongs to Snapdragon 800 chipsets while the remaining are for Snapdragon 400 and Snapdragon 200 SoCs.
It appears as if Nokia will unveil a high-end phablet with quad-core processors and Adreno 330 GPU followed by a number of mid-range and low-end Lumia devices – all of them featuring quad-core processors. The rumors suggest that we will see phablet from Nokia by the end of September.
Let’s just take this rumor with appropriate amount of salt. Even if Nokia doesn’t use Snapdragon 800 chipset, they will definitely use a decent quad-core processor. If you ask me, I am sure we will see a phablet very soon, considering the fact that majority of devices are coming with quad-core processors and launching a flagship phablet with a dual-core would be just stupid. If you recall, Samsung also scheduled an event on 4 September where the company expected to launch its flagship Galaxy Note 3.
