Did we see the Nokia Lumia phablet?

Did we see the Nokia Lumia phablet?
Saturday night, we showed you a picture of what looked like mass produced aluminum chassis for the soon to be announced Nokia EOS. But as the sun came up on Sunday morning, a new interpretation of the picture was being made. As some of our own astute readers realized, the phone looked larger than what you might expect from the Nokia EOS. And at the same time, a photo comparison between the Nokia Lumia 920 and the metal chassis revealed that the chassis was a lot longer than the Nokia Lumia 920.

One guess of the size of the chassis put it at around the same size as the original Samsung GALAXY Note (147mm x 83mm) which could make the metallic body a part of the rumored Nokia Lumia phablet that is on the way. Actually, as we told you Saturday night, there are two phablets expected to be coming from the Finnish handset manufacturer. One is rumored to drop in the September-October period with a 5.5 inch to 6 inch screen, while the other is expected next February. That model will have a high MP camera sensor with the Pelican-like lytro camera that allows the focal point of a picture to be changed after it is snapped.

According to Europe's business bible, the Financial Times, the first phablet will have more advanced specs than Samsung's phablet. It is expected to carry a 1080 x 1920 resolution, with an extra row of icons, and will be powered by the GDR 3 version of Windows Phone 8. That would mean it could technically support a quad-core processor, but the buzz is that Nokia has been having battery issues with this.

A phone is only as good as the software it runs... And WP isn't that great. I doubt this will "pwn" the Note line.

No, but this is a really good start I gotta admit! It has a 1080p screen, it has quad cores, I HOPE it will have a stylus, unfortunately it has WP, but it shows Nokia is listening! Hopefully they hear us asking a different OS too. Yeah, you know what I'm talkin' bout!!! :)

ok here i am, so show me what you got kid so pathetic you trying to start arguments to get attention http://www.phonearena.com/news/Nokia-is-planning-to-reinvent-the-ZOOM-at-its-next-big-event_id44024/comments?post=626475#post_626475 just so people know your the one acting like a keyboard warrior as for your comment, quad coree isnt need at this point, sure people wouldnt mind it but its not essential , niether is the 1080p screen......im hoping for them to ultilize there os to give a better experience on a bigger device, stylus maybe although the amount that utilize there power of phablets is little. ''unfortunately it has WP'' you see this as a negative yet how real tech lovers see it is more choice for us and more to push the competition

Suzie the "CaoticBUTTERKNIFE" herself is finally here! Screw the phones, this is what I've been what I been waiting for. For you to grow a pair and talk sh*t where people can see you get you vagina exposed. I don't make this stuff personal, but whenever ther's a WP article, you find away to attack any and everyone who will not kiss the Nokia camera's ring. Guess what sweet lips, it ain't happening here either. All you do is whine about what everyone else wants and thinks, like anybody gives a sh*t what you think. Nobody likes you here because you have proven yourself incapable of having a decent conversation with attacking people personally because of their OS of choice. I'm always laid back, calm, cool and non-confrontational to the people who are the same with me, even if we disagree. But you can never disagree with civility, you try to beat people down because you don't agree. But guess what sunshine, you're getting a verbal a$$ whipping today if you keep coming at me. Try it if you want and please bring your A game, because the crap you talk on old articles is weak!

ok i will reply to you with all the facts infront of the audience you wanted just so you get needless thumbs, thats why isnt it to feel important. ok lets start first the childish name calling proves any attempt you try to make yourself look mature will fail. you preach about been reasonable and not confrontational yet if anyone goes to that article they will see you started this and became a real child when someone disagrees and puts valid points forward to you. ''I'm always laid back, calm, cool and non-confrontational to the people who are the same with me, even if we disagree.'' again link to the article proves this is bs, you offered this fight like an keyboard warrior. ''you're getting a verbal a$$ whipping today if you keep coming at me.'' lmao see you proved your asking for confrontations and god i dont even have to try to keep up with you....your no challenge unlike you im not on here 24/7 so i comment when i have time, problem go cry for attention from other until im on. your truly deluded with these sneak attack lines....is this the closet thing you have to a real fight, do you go to your friends saying how your having a hard life. and no people buy the phone they like and want, its the best for them the difference is you said the note had better audio, screen etc then anything else which is false. theres a big difference buying what you want to saying your device is the best at everything. learn this and this is the richest line ever ''She tries to be an internet bully'' this started when i said that both google maps and nokia maps are excellent depending where you live, you then said no google is best and offered a fight and meeting for a real fight, ofcourse you made sure i didnt live near before offering this....so your the internet hardman trying to course problems and start something. its all there in that article for people to read you cant do anything, your a plastic gangster thinking he's hard with his keyboard at hand. this all you got? how about you stop this bs.

Maybe you don't understand what you've done here. This didn't start because you complemented Nokia Maps and Google maps like you want everyone to believe. This started because I said Google Maps was the best. Disagree if you want, that's fine, but you always find a way to make it personal. So take this verbal a$$ whoppin' personal that you're getting! This ain't about nothing else but your big, fat, nob-slobbin', stretch mark having mouth alway going off because your feelings get hurt when people do like what you like. If to cant stand reading other people's opinions, go back to reading "Twilight" like the rest of the girls your age. Don't come in here and talk sh*t when you don't have the mental capacity to back it up. You keep coming at me, and I will go balls deep on you every time. You will retire your PA account when I'm done sh*tting on you weak little name, ChaoticBUTTERKNIFE! I asked for your A game, not this whole "I was being all reasonable, and then Whateverman attacked me for no reason" crap you're trying to pull now. Take it like a man Becky!

lmao see i knew this was why you wanted this, so you had back up from the known sammy fanboys who always pile on so it becomes impossible to argue hows this kid, you and me one on one, no one else butting in, no dirtying up the comment section just you and me. theres messangers for this so im calling you out if your such a big man ofcourse you wont as you have proved you need help and an audience and you havent disprove anything. your pathetic and unless you got the balls to go one on one a waste of time. ive seen worse from primary school kids, honestly if you class this as a verbal attack you would br crying if i could say everything i want too. sadly P.A dont allow this so come on one on one you choose the messanger and watch how long it takes for you to go off crying....and yes i so wish you were round here so your hollow offer of a fight could happen. keyboard warrior only hard on the other side of the computer.....your on 24/7 too which shows your lacking a life

And yes! I asked you to man up and attack me in newer articles instead of waiting two days later to talk crap. See guys, Peggy likes to wait until everyone is done commenting on articles, then she'll sneak attack me just because I think my phone is the best! Doesn't everyone here buy their phone because they think it's the best? Of course you do, but with this little girl, you're never allowed to like what you have, and if you do she attacks you. Or if you have ANY kind of opinion about any other device, she feels the need to shut you down every time. She tries to be an internet bully, but she picked the wrong mothaf*cka in me. So as much as I hate Internet beef, I'm gonna have to tare this paper thug a new one.

I really sorry to be posting like this pro, but she started this. I know I can be a little too opinionated sometimes, but I'm always polite to everyone. This little girl decided to make me a target, but she obvious took my kindness for weakness. So I will be putting my sh*t-kickers up her a$$ until I get she either apologizes, avoids me, or cancels her account. I'll still be the real me with everyone else, but she gets my darkside from here on out.

lmao! This is exactly what I've been saying about the guy. Just moans and complains. He needs a pacifier.

33. SleepingOz unregistered

I know what you're talking about, dude! He(or she?) is one of the most arrogant and in denial nokia fanboy on here. He basically picks on everyone who says that their fav brands/OS(except nokia,symbian and WP) are the best, calling them stupid, pathetic, childish yet he supports and defends his fellow nokia fanboys for doing the same. And whenever he loses an argument, he will never ever admit that he's wrong even if deep inside, he knows he is. Ad hominem expert, always deviating from the original subject, bringing in all sort of random off topic bs in order to make his answers as vague and confusing as possible so he can claim he won the argument. Edit: He also like to whine about one getting more thumbs up than him.

@ SleepingOz and HouTexan... THANK YOU!!! We all have different ideas about what it is we want or like. And yes, some of us can even get a little fanboy-ish about it, me included. But this guy likes pushing people's buttons and I've tried ignoring him time and time again. I've even begged him to not to take me there, but she wouldn't listen. So since she wanted this fight with me so bad, I decided we can do this. But now that I've taken the gloves off, of course he disappeared and won't respond to me. This is what happens with all bullies right? Smack em' in the mouth one good time and they run away crying! I was just warming up.

I just ignore her, she tried to bash me and didn't worked out, she is the kind of person who seals itself in seemly perfectly crafted questions in order to diss out these "fanboys" and when her world falls apart all is left it's to call insults and cry foul... so I'm not going to dirt myself dealing with her... Or who knows maybe she has developed a crush on you and it's her way of expressing how much she likes you

Lol! My hats off to you my friend. I tried really hard, but she caught me on a bad week and I'm just just not going for it. I'm sure I'll feel bad about it later, but right now it feels like this was a long time coming.

wow another little keyboard warrior, seriosly people on here cant debate because they cant handle it. they act like you and your lot. i guess the tech community has become where the rejects gather judging by you and your friends lol pathetic

I get it now, you really are a kid. Protozeloz comment was too deep for you to understand, so you took it as an attack on you. Lol, you have so much more to learn about life it's almost cute. Look, I'm gona give you a second chance here and a little advice if you are willing to listen. We won't have go at it like this again as long as you're respectful to me and everyone else here. Respect gets you a long way, not just in PA but in life in general. We aren't here to verbal attack each other, we're here for the love of tech and just because someone feels a little strong about one brand then you doesn't make them your enemy, or a fanboy, stupid or pathetic. You just have a difference of opinion and that's fine. Express you opinion as respectfully as you can and even debate it out with them, but the attacking isn't good. You don't have to take on every person you think is a fanboy, pick your battles.

actually i was replying to how he said i went at him when i havent, if you cant take someone commenting and replying to you dont comment simple. second your arrogance has hit a new level. the actual mature people can see from the original article you started this and actually wanted to. but when it was just you and me you couldnt take it, thats why you wanted it on here so fellow fanboys would pile on. you couldnt handle the one on one you wont admit it but i dont care. as for respect, you offered the fight, you started about physical harm and you made immature comments so learn respect yourself. but the offer still stands one on one no fanboys to help you as for debating look at the comment i replied to your original one on the other article and then look at your response, face it you started this and on my own ive handled the four of you. pick your battles, this wasnt a battle lmao this was pathetic you should take your own advice considering you have done everything you say we shouldnt

Well, guess the onslaught will continue Becky. What I just did was called extending the olive branch, but since you insist getting you a$$ handed to you, let's go. You do know this means I take it up a notch right? You made this personal, so I will make it very personal. And you won't have to strick first next time, I'll come find you. I will start the whole thing so you can play the victim again, how is that? Just remember, I practically begged you not to take me there, but you wouldn't listen. Just like Pro said, you just keep at it. So save the water works little girl, and start fighting like a woman!

It may have quad cores. I personally doubt quad cores in WP will appear until 2014. Battery issues and what-not.

What is with people saying quad core kills batteries? I have a Note 2 and I've actually pushed 2 days without charging on the stock battery. During heavy use and gps I see over 24 hours with 10 to 30 percent remaining. And I don't turn off any sensors or try to power save. There are some aftermarket batteries that will last 5 days on a single charge. I have yet to see a legit battery issue on the Note 2 unless people are running non-stock roms. So stop it with the quad core battery issues.

14. Berzerk000

Posts: 4275; Member since: Jun 26, 2011

That's because the Note 2 has an abnormally large battery. Any user can see 1-2 days with moderate to heavy usage. Quad core does take a toll on battery, but it isn't really as much as people say it is, especially considering the new architectures coming out that have relatively low power consumption.

18. fanboy1974

Given that this is a phablet one can safely assume that they would put a battery in to match. Sure the battery would suck if you use a 1500mAH battery in a 4" phone but don't be surprised if the iPhone 5s will see a quad core chip with the same battery life you have today. I don't see how a iPhone 5s will sale if they keep the same display, bump the camera to 13mp and use a speed bump dual core A7. I would not be interested in that phone. But a quad does makes it interesting.

Your experience with the Note II is not extensible to WP and quad cores. Unless you have managed to port WP to the Note II. Have you been able to port WP to the Note II?

The NOTE II you never had! If you really had one, you'd know that the NOTE II is light years ahead the lumia, both in term of hardware and software.
