Nokia reportedly planning Lumia phablet, PureView Lumia due July

Nokia seems to strengthen its position in the mobile market with new products that are expected to be introduced later this year. According to the sources, the Finnish giant is working on a large screen Lumia smartphone to curb the sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note and other similar large screen devices.

Microsoft has already shared information about the General Distribution 3 (GDR3) of the Windows Phone 8 OS which will precisely offer support for quad-core processors and larger displays. Nokia appears to be the first manufacturer to take advantage of the new resolution. The smartphone would have similar screen size to Samsung Galaxy Note, in addition to more advanced hardware.

Based on the recent report from the Financial Times, Nokia also planned an “EOS” PureView Lumia with 41-megapixel camera for July, which will be the first Windows Phone device to have a similar sensor that’s found on Nokia’s 808 PureView handset.

The journal also reports that Nokia is planning the potential successor of the Lumia 920, known as Catwalk, which seems to have an aluminum body and will weigh less than Lumia 920. Nokia seems to target low-end market, where Nokia has been the leader for over a decade.

However, a vertical drop in sales of Nokia mobile phones has given a dramatic erosion of revenue to the company. Still there is something to cheer for the Finnish giant, according to its latest financial results, Nokia has sold 5.6 million Lumia in this quarter. Definitely, Lumia has proved a lifesaver for the Finnish mobile maker. The company must be hoping to extend the positive trend so far acquired with its upcoming devices.
