Rumored Nokia-branded tablet could be an 18.4-inch monster

Rumored Nokia-branded tablet could be an 18.4-inch monster
As far as rumors come and go, this is a pretty wild one, but it's too interesting not to be passed along. Apparently, FIH Mobile, a Foxconn subsidiary that licenses the Nokia brand for mobile devices, is working on an 18.4-inch display tablet. Specs (available below) for the gargantuan device showed up in the GFXBench database. Although there's no Nokia explicitly written anywhere, the operating system is listed as Android 7.0 FIH Edition, which is our clue for this being a future Nokia-branded device.

The tablet, or should we say 18.4-inch mini tv, has a 2560 x 1440 resolution screen and is powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage (52GB left for users). It features two 12MP cameras on the front and back, both capable of recording 4K resolution video. The rear cam has the advantage of auto focus and LED flash, though.

There's no more information about the device at this point. It may or may not be released, an it may or may not be a China-only model – like the Nokia 6 Android smartphone shown at CES.

64GB is NOT Enough Storage! Bump the Storage to 128GB and also have a 256GB Model as well.

and what will you do with that much storage? install racing game and play it just like tablet? if you need storage for movies and stuff, just slap ext.HDD... if you need game on large screen, just play that game on your smart TV / shield / cast it from your phone or whatever

I think the point of a 18.4 inch 2k screen is to play higher resolution video. 64GB? Sounds reasonable, but 128GB or micro sd card would be cool too.

What can I do with a bigger storage? There's a lot of things that I could do. Slap Ext. HDD? Why would you prefer a plug in storage. When you can have a bigger internal storage plus a slide in storage(AKA microSD) like 256 GB internal storage + 256GB external microSD storage which cost $250? Atleast that way. You won't have any problems accidentally dropped the external HD. Which could have important files in it.

I prefer external storage because manufacturers charge stupidly high prices for more internal storage. MicroSD cards are much cheaper.

same as nokia 6, leaks said it was 13inch tablet, my guess that is just prototype for nokia flagship and not tablet.

Other sites report that it is the very awaited - ultimate flagship Nokia of 2017, marking the Return of the King on the mobile industry The 18.4 screen size is actually a (usual) mistake made from the benchmark websites working on non-final products

i dont think its a tablet. I think display diagonal is wrong, but everything else is true. Probably 5.5-5.7 inch display. This probably going to be flagship announced next month

damn, 18 inch? Crazy where portability goes these days with 21 inch laptops, triple displays and whatnot.
