Nokia Lumia 825 might be a budget 5.2" Windows Phone with quad-core Snapdragon 400
0. phoneArena 14 Aug 2013, 06:02 posted on
An interesting notion surfaced about Nokia's upcoming big-screen phones portfolio. Sources indicated that leaked specs for a "budget" phablet of sorts are actually what might end up as a Nokia Lumia 825. The phone is expected to sport a large 5.2" display with 720p resolution, and be powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, pointing at the Lumia that leaked on GFXBench not long ago...

What's the matter Seohyun with nokia's big mid range handset? I think this is the definitely a good start for them.

Don't be suprised because Nokia is taking us home of triumph.

Thats definately a good news, that means a Lumia 9XX series with quad core SD 800 and 1080P screen might be in the pipeline too. Why should Lord be merciful on you, diaper girl?

you tell me if > 70% of nokia's employees werent kicking themselves in the butt feeling sorry that it should be them ruling the smartphone world instead of samsung, had eflop gone for android vs wp... nokia = super quality hardware + beautiful looking devices + killer camera, neither samsung are offering...

People don't care about beautiful looking phones and super quality hardware as much as you think.
Otherwise they won't buy Samsung at all.
Its good that Nokia going with WP instead of android. We don't need 2 horse race like PC industry.

You are so right. Many people I know wouldn't even think of buying a Samsung if Nokia were also making Android phones. But WP is getting better each day. I only wish MS would speed up things a bit. Nokia is doing everything it can.

My office has 12 individuals, 10 Samsung users, 1 LG and yours truly with Nokia and Samsung. I did an informal survey and simply all of them would switch back to Nokia if they went Android.
I am really into WP and never wished for a Google monopoly, but there is some evidence that Nokia could do just great with Android.
I think the availability is really helping Samsung here in Brazil. Their top products reach our stores within a month or so. With Nokia the wait is excruciating, the Lumia 920 took more than 5 months to get here. There is no sign of the 925. And I can only hope the the Lumia 1020 would get here by december...

Youre right. People tend to buy samsung phones because of the gimm.. err features it offers for its phones. I did also have samsung because it has more features. I may not use them all but at least, I have options. It also comes handy at times, especially multiwindow.
Also, samsung does great marketing. It skyrocketed Samsung's sales.

Always a hater! This ain't about android or Samsung so shut up and just enjoy the message.
7. Antonyjoseph (Posts: 216; Member since: 06 Apr 2013)
Bring it on Nokia. So we have a 4.7" 625 and now a 5.2" 825. So how about a 4.3" 525, 5" 725 and a 5.5" 930 (Since 925 is already there). While we are at it, how about a 3.5" barebones Lumia 325.
9. maverick786us (Posts: 138; Member since: 20 Apr 2012)
I am sure this time they will not rename it 825 because they can't relaunch 925. But it will be a different league of smartphones with quad core processors. Starting from 5XX and 6XX series having 1.0Ghz Quad core, 7XX and 8XX series having 1.1Ghz Quad Core and 9XX series with SD800 quad core and 1080P screen
37. neutralguy (Posts: 1152; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)
Maybe 1025 with 5.5-6" screen and aluminum body and same camera like the 1020. Quadcore with 2gb of ram, 1080p display. 2500-3000mAh battery?
48. grapeseed87 (Posts: 123; Member since: 13 Mar 2013)
How about 990? Then At&T version can be 991, Tmob 992, etc. Eventually Verizon gets a 995.

Everything seems look very promising until you realize it's a windows phone. This will fail.
13. muhsen (Posts: 275; Member since: 07 Jun 2012)

WTF is 'Greetzz.'? Do u fart after every comment you posted?
46. Credo (Posts: 702; Member since: 19 Apr 2012)
Yes i do, you got a problem with that?

The two extra cores are there to make the spec crazy people happy.
30. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
Nope. So your telling me a V6 engine to a V8 to a V12 engine are the same to run....
The other 2 cores will push system, the other pushes the screen, other pushes the apps, and one for sync. You will have less power on all Cpu so it dosen't consume battery. The cpu will float at 300+ instead of 600MHZ.
34. Nathan_ingx (Posts: 3135; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
O cut the crap with the car analogy. It's never a valid comparison...you ride on cars, you don't ride on phones, they do tasks.
You don't need an extra if what you have is enough to take care of everything within that device.
More...more...more...that's what you want...nothing else.

Welcome back! Oops, I forgot, you're 'limited.' Yet, you keep throwing trash out of your filthy mouth. At any rate, it doesn't matter because the fact that your thought-process and understanding is just as limited more than makes up for it.
You just went full retard. Never go full retard. Let me break it down for you. You know nothing about technology, so don't go on commenting with your inaccurate and irrelevant garbage.
Nathan served you right, but the fact that you're saying that a V6 can't be compared to a V8 or V12 is total BS, and I couldn't help it but to laugh and make you look like a total retard. Just because you're one doesn't mean that others are. You know nothing about cars, and you dare compare them to phones? A GT-R has a V6, yet can easily stack up, heck, even surpass an MP4, which, in case you're wondering, has a V8. *Big surprise.* These two supercars are the rivals of the V12 Aventador.
Suck on that now, for starters.

but you know some 4 cyl cars with one small turbo on it are capable to beat sh*t out of 5,6,8 and even 10,12 and 16 cyl cars. this means thinking correctly and not for bigger is better smaller means less weight and weight means nearly 90% of victory in a car industry
38. neutralguy (Posts: 1152; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)
Future proofing. :) didnt you know that androis OS really only needs 2 cores? Its just a matter of optimization of hardware and software.
17. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
So you we have to wait 2014 April for the Quad core S800 .... Lumia 9 series or 10 series
Good for nothing having a low budget cheap S400.
31. Nathan_ingx (Posts: 3135; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
O shut up you whimp!
WP don't lag even on a dual core processor...i bet Microsoft is putting up with these new processors just to follow the trend and maybe because of people like you who decides the rating of phones with respect to how new and capable the hardware is. They might just need a quad for 1080p resolution. Otherwise, i still believe a dual core S4 pro can very much deal with WP8 without a hitch.
Hopeless, no good, spec hungry troll!

im already happy with the snappy performance of my Lumia 520... now this!.. damn i wanna upgrade soon... :3

Wow this'll be great to compete with all Samsung's dual SIM android phones and that too with budget price, a very very good move indeed. Bring it on Nokia.

I do love seeing that they are starting to roll out possible quad core WP8 phones just to shut up spec whores, now lets get this app situation under control and maybe we will get some fair weather fans jump over to the amazing platform.

It would be more powerful than even their 1020
52. 7thspaceman (Posts: 1290; Member since: 14 Feb 2011)
This is it folks now nokia can cut loose and fly like a goose. there no more restrictions to the Windows Phone 8 using all the high tech gear a smart phone can have. the nokia 1020 is a not Nokia's 2013 flag ship smart phone because I bet you a 5 or 6 inch 1080p screen Nokia lumia smart phone with quad core CPU, screen and the 41 pixel super camera with come out later this year that will be KING of the windows smart phones. the only problem with this device will be
BATTERy LIFE because folks if you want Quad core CPU's and HD screens and the rest of the high tech goodies a smart phone can have all this tech will eat up battery power something fearce
55. kabir02 (Posts: 18; Member since: 16 Dec 2010)
I foresaw Nokia at the zenith of window phones chat. Really indeed.
56. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
if its a quad core it shows Nokia is ready to show some of its monstrosities based on the newest hardware.
I don't see a necessity of using so powerful chips but in the end, the customer is what matters. If ignorants want to have quad cores to enjoy their devices, give them what they want...even if it's completely unnecessary.
57. MistB (Posts: 581; Member since: 07 Jul 2012)
With Quad Core processors, more and more developers will port more demanding gaming onto the WP App store which will already add to the excellent usability of the OS. Was considering the Lumia 620 as a low end budget phone, but this sounds more future proof.

My dream lumua is 4.7" true hd clear black display, 2gb ram,sd card, 10 mp pure view cam, 1.9dul core processor, 2500 mah battery... bring it Nokia
60. Nasheer_B (Posts: 10; Member since: 05 Nov 2012)
Windows Phone with a quad core? Haha I rate it would be twice as fast as the galaxy S4 with it's SH1T Android OS.
