We’ve been hearing a lot of rumors regarding Nokia’s upcoming smartphones and today, new set of rumors have emerged. As reported by MobileToday, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, and CFO, Timo Ihamuotila, talked to UK’s Mobile Magazine about an upcoming ‘hero’ device (presumably the Lumia 928) and phablets.
According to the publication, the ‘hero’ device is expected to launch by the end of June, with Nokia looking for an exclusive US network deal. Here’s what Elop had to say:-
What we’re trying to do is really make sure that we’re shifting the focus towards hero experiences. So, you hear us talking a lot about imaging, and so, you should watch…for us to continue to advance the state of the art, like what is the best experience in imaging on devices.
As for the much talked phablet, all Elop said was that the company was looking into “broader form factors and different things that we can do”. While there’s been no official statement regarding its specs, Mobile Today reports that the device will feature a 6-inch screen, which is even bigger than Galaxy Note 2 and the rumored Galaxy Note 3! Also it’s reported to have a price-tag between £400 (~$621) and £500 (~$777) and is expected for a release in the fourth quarter of 2013. Would you buy a Nokia Phablet?
