A new concept envisions a Nokia Lumia 1080 phablet with a 5.5-inch display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, PureView camera and more.
Rumors of an upcoming Windows phablet from Nokia have been making rounds for quite some time, but this new concept takes it to the next level and offers an idea of how the device could look like.
Neowin's Nokia Lumia 1080 phablet concept is "entirely speculative" and the device is "completely fictional," but it's interesting nonetheless.
Microsoft started rolling out the GDR2 Windows Phone update but another GDR3 update is expected later this year, with support for Full HD (1080p) displays and quad-core processors.
The Nokia Lumia 1080 concept is running Windows 8.1 and boasts a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 3 protection, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, Adreno 330 graphics and 2GB of RAM. The phablet would come with either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage expandable up to 64GB via microSD. Other specs would include a 16-megapixel rear camera with PureView technology, LED flash and Full HD 60 fps video recording capabilities, as well as a 2.2-megapixel front camera and a powerful 3,200 mAh battery.
The folks over at Neowin didn't stop here, however, as they envisioned much greater things for the Nokia phablet. The Lumia 1080 would also boast a fingerprint scanner, a stylus, and software that would allow users to customize the Live Tiles to a greater extent. A new Notifications hub would include SMS messages, emails, tweets and more, and would log events as soon as they occur.
Keep in mind, however, that this is just a concept, so don't get your hopes up that such a device will actually hit the market, at least not anytime soon. Despite numerous rumors and speculations about a Nokia "Bendit" phablet, the company has stayed mum so far and has not confirmed anything in this regards.
The point of such concepts is to imagine what could be, and perhaps inspire companies to take these ideas into account. Head over to Neowin to see the concept in all its glory, complete with several images to illustrate the fictional Nokia Lumia 1080.
