Nokia seems to be on a roll these days. True, the Windows Phone platform is still an insignificant blip on the smartphone OS radar – but the platform has only been gaining market-share slowly. The Finnish phonemaker has also been on a phone launching spree of late. Devices like the Lumia 925, Lumia 928, the Lumia 625 and the much talked about Lumia 1020 – all saw the light of the day in the past few months. And if we are to go by fresh reports , this is going to continue in the future as well.
It was just last month that Nokia came up with the Lumia 625 – the phone with a 4.7 inch dispay – Nokia’s biggest yet. The Verge now reports that Nokia will in the near future come up with a 6 inch monster of a phone called the “Bandit”. The device will get a full HD display and would be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon processor. The report adds that the device is currently under testing. The Bandit would get the usual Nokia Polycarbonate treatment and is said to be very thin. Nokia had in the not too distant past revealed that a big screened Galaxy Note 2 challenger is in their plan. This was back in April in a report by the Financial Times.
Also to be noted is the fact that for the device to be launched Nokia would require Microsoft to complete the development of the GDR3 update that is expected to be complete by mid September. In any case we can expect this one to be out before the end of the year.
