6" Nokia phablet for AT&T to sport quad-core Snapdragon 800, lower-end Lumias getting 400 and 200

0. phoneArena 20 Aug 2013, 06:26 posted on

We just heard that Nokia's Full HD phablet is codenamed Bandit for internal consumption, and this latest listing adds to its monster 6" display a matching chipset, with Snapdragon 800 listed front and center. The AT&T version of this 6" phablet is coded RM-940 and in fresh Bluetooth certification filings belongs to QDID portfolio which reveals that the newest crop of Snapdragon processors will be powering an upcoming Lumia batch. These include the powerful quad-core Snapdragon 800, but also 400 and 200 are listed for the portfolio, which we can assume is for the lower-end models slated for Q4 release...

Can't find anywhere the pairing of Exmor R sensor with Optical Image Stabilization (I'm not talking of Digital Image Stabilization) - please give a link. Or a link to any Android phone with OIS, for that matter.

Where did you get the idea that the xperia l is at par in performance with 520? Absolutely untrue because the xperia stutters in some areas while the 520 is smooth in operation!

I never mentioned the pairing of the Exmor R with OIS. I mentioned two separate camera features that have been used to improve the camera performance of smartphones that turned out to be Android devices.

It was Sharp AQUOS device that was the first to use the OIS on any smartphone.

Yes fans on all sides take things too far. I try as much as possible when I do see those types of comments to steer everyone back to reality and the facts.

First of all, when I was talking about the Nexus devices, I was merely pointing out that there was continued software updates to the camera app which meant that there was a focus on the camera. If you look back at those Nexus devices I'm sure there were better cameras on other devices, but I'm also sure that some of those better cameras were on other Android phones.

Also, I don't know where you get your facts from but the AQUOS phone with OIS introduced in 2011 was indeed an Android phone:http://www.engadget.com/2011/12/07/sharp-aquos-sh-01ds-optical-image-stabilizer-hands-on-video/

So no, the Lumia 920 was not the first smartphone to offer it.

Dude 520 stutters as well occasionally. You use it day to day you'd notice. They are about the same.

Good specs are required not only for OS but for applications and games which are running on OS. Talking about the games and WP, there already was inconveniences because of small amount of RAM memory in WP devices. Also higher specs means that there is bigger chance that your device will be updated to the newer OS in the future (or less "fragmentation" due weak hardware).

P.S.
Nice to see that Nokia is starting to put more powerful hardware into their devices. :)

Better specs mean better high end hd games, better multitasking, specs,keeping up with competition, more future proof.


this will cost almost same as most android flagship phones so why not have best of the best on your device. Besides most people like to hold higher value specs on their device. We don't need 1080p resolution but people prefer 1080p over 720p.
its also a marketing technic.

Nokia is stepping up the game! Any last words Fandroids and Sheeps?

Attention!! The sheeps I mentioned are not offensive. Sheep is an animal that lives in a farm.
