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...

now they just need to upgrade WP to something like windows RT , more live tiles, more informations, more animations, more apps, more settings like VPN...

Already figured they were moving this direction but its good to see actual signs of that. They add a better notification system or allow unity to work with all apps (great notification app) and I'll be happy. I've never understood the want or need for games on a phone as its a huge disconnect using the touch screen to move. I bought the halo game and the only knock is the damn controls.

This is a good deal for Nokia for using honest specifications at a fair price.

What happened to all the fanboys always saying WP 8 is so optimized it doesn't need high end specs.

compare a lumia 520 to a similar specced device
the 800 is just to tech reviewers off on wp back
spec for spec wp is much smoother than android
even with a higher specced android wp still wins in smoothness
case in point gs4 vs l920
it shouldnt even be a contest but gs4 loses in everything except features and customization
that is just sad

wow you really are one sad little fanboy
so heres android fanboy mindset
wp8 runs on dualcore smoother then quadcore androids, you shout last year specs etc etc
quad core said to be coming which shuts up your kind and you spew that it was other fanboys saying they didnt need it....
basically your against anything they do and hate seeing all your flimsy fanboy comments getting torn apart. first was the lack of apps but thats been squashed, then the last year specs which you wont be able to use now/ looks like you will need to think of something fast to feel secure in your own choice
heres some real news for you, try to take it in as i know you find it hard in your fanboy world. wp8 runs smooth with dualcore, so a quadcore wp8 device will be future proof and should run better then any other os if they optimize it well. plus the continuation of features been adding really pushes it forward
android and ios arent going to stay the top 2 forever, you really cant handle another o gaining traction can you
dont reply, you will just be wasting space on here

NOW we're talking! Have it sport a 41MP PureView camera and we'll have a proper W8 device on our hand.

Got to have that just hope more apps roll out behind it

I'm not trying to start any type of flame war or anything, but why does WP need a phablet device??? To me (and its just my opinion), it doesn't make any sense other than to watch videos. Android makes sense because you have the ability of widgets. WP is just going to be able to add more Big tiles than before. And its not alone, i would feel the same way about Apple doing a Phablet. All it would be would be more icons on the screen. So, I would truly like some WELL INFORMED feedback on how this would benefit WP users (besides the obvious video one mentioned above).

They aren't just flat unanimated tiles, they actually flip, display info, she different pictures, very much like a wigit

Not to criticize but.... seriously bro is that the only reason you wanted to use a large screen Android phone? Just for a Widget?
60. Troysyx (Posts: 161; Member since: 30 Jul 2012)
Not at all, i actually use very few widgets. But its nice having my bookmarks, my calendar, and my gmail scrollable on one page.
And i get what you mean as well Papss.

This rumored device proves the MS GDR3 Hardware updates for Windows phone 8 are in effect.
Now Nokia can make Windows 8 Smartphones that use the latest and greatest technology available for smartphone OEM's to use.The next big update is the Windows Phone 8 "BLUE"
software updates that will give Windows phone 8 a good notification center, VPN, better Multitasking and a host of other software updates to make Windows 8 smart phones better.
I think Apps creators were waithing for Windows Phone 8's hardware capabilities to become up to date before they committed the time and energy to make some Apps for Windows 8smart phones. now that Windows 8 smart phones have the code to use the best tecnology the ,really good Apps makers can make some very good Apps for Windows smart phones. there is no excuse not to now!

6inch is abit to much imo... 5.5inch would be nice... like the Snote
58. ZeroCide (Posts: 721; Member since: 09 Jan 2013)
UGHHHH AT&T!!!!!! Come on Sprint. and stop the ATT exclucivity on awesome phones. ATT is not the only carrier.
59. WirelessCon (Posts: 309; Member since: 11 May 2010)
At&t tries to get the latest phones, while the other carriers just sit and wait. Of course, it helps that At&t is GSM.

More importantly, can we expect an Ascend Mate class batt pack for the 6" chassis at the very least? Dig that out will ya PA?

they should release a cyan international version this time....
74. papss (unregistered)
I agree... I miss my cyan 920 and my red one. I currently have a yellow 1020 and its a nice color I wished it was red or cyan :(

When would people start realizing that Windows phone DOES NOT need top end specs??
A 1.5Ghz dual-core processor coupled with 1GB RAM is more than enough since there is no real multi-tasking involved in Windows OS.
Although the benchmarks might differ, I'm sure there won't be ANY difference at all between a dual-core and Quad-core powered Windows phone. The only thing Windows phone have to improve is a 1080p screen.
