Reuters says that Nokia may be planning to the phablet at an event in late September in New York City. If that announcement date window is accurate, it seems unlikely that the actual release would be later than mid-October. And really, that makes the most sense, because mid-October is looking like a big time for Windows.A new report from
Update: Windows Phone Central has now confirmed with its sources that the Nokia Bandit will indeed feature a 6-inch 1080p display and a 20-megapixel camera forming a slight bump a la Nokia Lumia 925 on the back. The Bandit is also once again said to run on a quad-core chip and Windows Phone 8 with GDR3 update.
Mid-October will see the release of the Windows 8.1 update, and is expected to also see the Windows Phone GDR3 update, which is needed for the platform to support 1080p displays, and phablet sized displays. The Nokia Windows RT tablet is also expected to release in the fall, but it is unclear when. Of course, none of that helps to shed light on what we may see at Nokia's planned event in Moscow at the end of this month.
