- Sources tell The Verge Nokia (NOK -0.5%) is testing a 6" phablet (codenamed Bandit) that will sport a 1080p display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU (the 800 is a good bet), a polycarbonate body, and a camera with a 20MP or higher resolution. AT&T is also testing the phone, and a launch is planned for later this year.
- Not surprisingly, Bandit is said to include Windows Phone's upcoming GDR3 update, which allows the OS to support 1080p displays and quad-core CPUs.
- The FT previously reported Nokia is working on a phablet, and a July Chinese image leak depicted what's said to be the device's display glass.
- The Verge also reports Nokia plans to bring the aluminum Lumia 925 (currently sold by T-Mobile USA) to additional U.S. carriers.
- The site reported on Friday a Nokia Windows RT tablet launch event is tentatively set for Sep. 26.
