Nokia To Announce Something BIG Tomorrow

By 02:26 Sat, 17 Jul 2021 Comments

Nokia has a big, BIG announcement for tomorrow and is giving us pretty short notice. Whatever it is, it will be unveiled tomorrow morning in London (9am UK time, 8am UTC). There's still plenty of time to guess, except all we have to go on is an orange ("sunset orange", according to an online color chart) back with the Nokia logo engraved.

Nokia can be pretty sneaky with these things, like the solid yellow background with black oval that turned out to be the loudspeaker of the Asha 501.

So, is this an Asha? Maybe, but not if "big" refers to physical size – Asha phones are generally small.

Stephen Elop, Nokia CEO, did talk about phablets in early May, and the defining characteristic of phablets is "big".

This would, however, require the device to run the elusive GDR3 update, which will finally enable 1080p resolution as WXGA (1280 x 768) can only be stretched so far. The update will also add quad-core support and other features, except the latest info is that it's slated for next year.

Then again, the Nokia Lumia 625 is pretty gigantic - 4.7" classy screen - with only WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) resolution.

Join us tomorrow and find out what this BIG thing really is.
