Nokia is jumping on the phablet bandwagon


Nokia has a new 6-inch Windows Phone handset, codenamed Bandit, in testing at the moment reports The Verge. The phone will feature a 1080p display, the first of several from the company, as well as a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

The Verge’s report cites sources “familiar with Nokia’s plans” and goes on to say that the Bandit handset, which doesn’t have an official designation as yet, will ship with a rear camera that is at least 20 megapixels and that the phone will feature a polycarbonate shell.

Microsoft is said to be tweaking the Windows Phone OS to better support 1080p displays, adding in features like an additional row of Live Tiles which the increased screen size would be able to take advantage of.

No further details are known about the new 6-inch handset from Nokia at the moment but the current information seems to align with previous rumours that Nokia was considering a bigger Windows Phone device.
