Now seeing its growing popularity, Nokia is said to all set to jump into the 'phablet' market later this year.
Reportedly, Nokia's phablet with a 5" screen - at power with Samsung's Galaxy Note is likely to hit markets this year. If this happens, Samsung beside Apple will have another competitor to deal with.
The timings seem perfect as Microsoft is already planning to update Windows Phone 8 for supporting 1080p displays. This will aid the Finnish smartphone manufacturer to take advantage of resolution by introducing its variant of super-sized phones.
The possible release of the Phablet is said to be a part of Nokia’s Lumia range of smartphones releasing this year. Aside from that, Nokia’s “EOS” PureView Lumia, which is basically the 808 PureView but running on Windows Phone instead, is also lined up for release this July. Also, Nokia’s first ever Lumia with a metallic build, dubbed as Catwalk, is also in 2013 portfolio of Nokia.
