Rumors surrounding Nokia's upcoming devices are now being highlighted by almost all tech sites across the world. The Mobile World Congress 2014, which is slated for late February in Barcelona, is where the Finnish smartphone giant could unveil its latest smart devices. To be more precise, according to the company's press Invite, its the 24th day of February we are talking about.
As of now, the maker of the Lumia 1020 has not officially confirmed the devices which would be unveiled at the event. However, out of the rumored number of smartphones, the note-worthy ones worth waiting for would definitely be the Normandy, which is the company's first Android smartphone and the Lumia 1820 which could possibly come with a 5.2-inch display.
Both these devices will mark a unique move from the company. With Normandy, its venture with Android might just get a kick-start. While the Lumia 1820 might point toward the entry of the Finnish giant in the 5-inch smartphone arena.
Other than these two smartphones, an 8-inch Lumia 2020, Lumia 630, Lumia 635, Lumia 1520V and Lumia 1525 could also be unveiled at the upcoming MWC 2014.
Nokia Normandy has been leaked several times in the past and the latest one that came just a day ago surprised almost everyone, who have been following the device so far. One of the Vietnamese e-commerce sites listed the device on their site and laid down its full specs as well. But the specs are not yet confirmed officially until now.
However according to the same site, the Nokia Normandy would come with a 4-inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels. It would be powered by a 1 GHz dual-core processor and Adreno 302 GPU coupled with a 512 MB RAM. Surprising factor was that, it would run on Android KitKat, as opposed the the earlier rumors that said that it could come with a 'forked' Android OS. Apart from that, the device would house 4GB of on board storage capacity. There would also be a microSD card slot which would support up to 32GB of external storage unit. Photography would be taken care of by a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus, LED flash and HD (720p) video recording capability. As hinted by the earlier leaks, the smartphone would also support a dual-SIM functionality as well. Other highlights of the smartphone would include: HSDPA (7.2Mbps) and HSUPA (5.76Mbps), Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as FM Radio, microUSB and 3.5mm audio jack.
There are hardly any information pertaining to the Lumia 1820. However, speculations are that it would come with a metal-body. Apart from that, the device is expected to come with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor backed by a hefty 3GB RAM. The screen should be dazzling at 5.2-inch with a 2K resolution. The device could also come powered by a 3400mAh battery and 32GB of expandable storage.
It should be noted that these are just the rumored specs with the company yet to disclose the details on specs of both the devices. Availability and pricing would be revealed later next month, most probably at the MWC 2014.
