First image of 6-inch Nokia Lumia phablet leaks, shows very slim bezel

First image of 6-inch Nokia Lumia phablet leaks, shows very slim bezel
We’ve heard it multiple times that Nokia is building a phablet, but now for the first time we get to see actual parts of the device. The front panel of the new Nokia Lumia phablet has appeared and it allegedly unveils a device with an extremely slim bezel.

Chinese ICTech published the image on its Weibo account and judging by its great track record for leaks, this is more likely than not to be the real deal.

The publication adds that Nokia is already mass producing the device and it will feature a whopping 6-inch display. That would put it right along with humongous devices like the Galaxy Mega series, if true, of course. Judging by the size of the device compared to how small the hand holding it looks like, we have no reason to doubt this. Our guess is that this would come along with the Windows Phone GDR3 update around the end of the year. That would allow a 1080p display that almost seems like a must for such a huge screen.

The front panel also has an opening for a front-facing camera, and that’s about all the intel we can gather from this shot. Feel free to examine the image and speak out: is it real or not?

If it would be so bad, the huge advertisement campaign wouldn´t be so effective.

Yes. Almost every single Sony phone is over rated and same goes for LG. I can't even explain how much hype the Xperia Z got and it ended up being a flagship with the worst 1080p screen. Used it in person and don't see what everyone is raving about.

unlike what you think, i actually think Samsung considers Nokia as a rival, and a big one, even though they are far behind many android OEMs. Samsung's attempt to make a camera and a phone produce a baby ended up as a brick (when we are so accustomed to calling Nokia phone bricks), HTC tried ultrapixels while Motorola also has something up their sleeve. That shows all of them are paying attention to what Nokia is doing, and in return trying to improve their own products,

Not only that, motorola is now retro-fitting their phones with dumbed down specs in a pathetic attempt to improve battery life. I can't stop laughing at how these fanboys have suddenly changed their feelings toward heavy/bulky handsets like the moto droid maxx; apparently the heft is "something you'll forget about quickly" (chris zeigler - mobile vergecast 23/07/2013) ROTFLMFAO... I eagerly await the review for this handset (droid maxx) by phone arena; Why because it's specs are : dual-core snapdragon s4, 2g ram, 720p screen 10mp rear camera. These same specs "would make anyone yawn" according to a recent product review (the lumia 1020 if you can't figure it out). "Underwhelming" was the adjective used at the end to mark its score down.

probably not yet, but soon they will be, and judging for nokia's popularity here (not just with the writers), that very soon is just up the corner...

You can throw a 4K display in there but it still does not fix the OS problem. WP is fast but it stinks. Put Android on it then it will be a different story. WP fans can't talk until they pass Apple for second place. I can talk crap because Android is in first place while WP is picking up scraps and fanbois. It's that simple.

You know one main reason why Android is where it is now is because of it being open sourced by Google and hey! it didn't just got there overnight, it actually took it time to wrestle it from iOS. Give WP time and watch it do same to Android and had Microsoft open sourced it or made it flexible (customisation-wise) there wouldn't any battle to fight, they would breeze through.

Unfortunately Microsoft will never allow WP to be open sourced. This is the same company that for 6 months + denied that there was any problems with Windows 8 Metro, and that people didn't have issues with the start button being removed. This is also the same company that allowed Nokia to release the Nokia Lumia 900 knowing that it would never be updated to WP8 and then releasing the Lumia 920 a few months later. Microsoft is an even more rigid, stagnant comapny than Apple and that is saying something. I would love a Nokia Lumia 1020 and would even put up with WP8 to get it, but I won't delude myself into thinking, that aside from Nokia hardware and software tweaks that it is a good os.

Thank God you don't run a company. lol While right NOW WP doesn't threaten Android, it's foolish to think that windows is a joke and a non-player. With the prolific use of the Windows OS on computers, and the Xbox of course, it's in MS's hands I think. If MS can continue to evolve the OS and find a way to integrate the phone into the how we naturally use our Windows PC's and entertainment (xbox), I can see the use of WP exploding. For me, I love Android right now, but I'd gladly jump to WP if it offered slick and useful integration with my PC.

No. I didn't mention Samsung in every article. I don't hate Samsung, I only hate those jelly Fansungs. Hate can't get me anywhere, but Fansungs are everywhere.

He loves Samsung but doesn't want to admit it. Pretty obvious if you ask me.
