Nokia to launch a 6-inch Windows Phone by the end of the year
The Verge has reported that Nokia is planning to launch a Windows Phone handset with a 6-inch screen later this year. Currently, Nokia is testing the device with the latest version of the operating system. The codename of the handset is “Bandit” and it will get a 1080p display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor.
Bandit is going to be the first one of many handsets with a 1080p display released by Nokia. According to The Verge, the device will get a rear camera with at least 20-megapixels, as well as a slight hump at the back of the device just like Lumia 925. It will have a light and thin body made of polycarbonate. Microsoft is working currently on the GDR3 update which is going to make Windows Phone suitable for devices with a 1080p display. Also, the update is going to support an additional column for Live Tiles allowing three middle sized tiles in one row. It includes a rotation lock and a driver mode for in-car use as well.
The Verge has also reported that Nokia is planning to launch soon its Lumia 925 smartphone on additional carriers in the USA. The “Bandit” device is currently being tested at AT&T and will appear on the US market until the end of the year.
