Nokia Lumia 825 might be a budget 5.2" Windows Phone with quad-core Snapdragon 400

Nokia Lumia 825 might be a budget 5.2
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.

This means that the phone should arrive with the GDR3 Windows Phone update that introduces support for higher resolutions and more processor cores. The new Lumia is said to also sport Miracast and NFC wireless connectivity, dual SIM version, and the QuickCharge option. 

There's certainly a place for big-screen Windows Phones, and Nokia will apparently be ready to deliver as soon as Microsoft ends its sweet development time with the WP8 GDR3 update.

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?

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.

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.

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

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?

How about 990? Then At&T version can be 991, Tmob 992, etc. Eventually Verizon gets a 995.

WP need only one core. Why waste.

The two extra cores are there to make the spec crazy people happy.

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. ™

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.
