New Delhi: The long-rumoured Nokia event, which was reportedly originally scheduled for late September, has been pushed by several weeks and will now take place on October 22 in Abu Dhabi. The company is speculated to launch the much-anticipated "large-screen" phablet device, dubbed Lumia 1520, at the event. Nokia has confirmed the date and venue of the event in the teaser posters attached with its tweets.
The tweets made by Nokia read: "At #Nokia, we believe in technology that grows in leaps and bounds. Discover more on October 22 #innovationreinvented"
The rumoured Windows Phone 8 phablet is likely to come with a 6-inch 1080 p display, 2GB of RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 32GB of storage, and a microSD card slot. We have seen the device in various leaked images and if the images are believed to be true, the device will have a slight hump at the rear of the device. Reportedly, the Lumia 1520 will be able to snap images at 5 megapixel and 16 megapixel resolution. The device will have a polycarbonate body, and is expected to be thin and lightweight.
Nokia has also confirmed the Oct 22 launch event in a blog post on Nokia conversations. "Nokia World is coming and the Nokia Conversations team will be in Abu Dhabi on October 22 to bring you the news as it unfolds," said Nokia in the blog post.
