Nokia tablet rumor round-up: Snapdragon 800 with Windows RT

Nokia tablet rumor round-up: Snapdragon 800 with Windows RT

One of the current longest-lasting rumors on a device that's not yet seen the light of day is the Nokia tablet - this week appearing again as a Windows RT device and with Verizon 4G LTE. This machine has appeared in renderings, in trademark applications, and in talk directly with Nokia - and here in the summer of 2013, it may finally be time that the tips converge. What we may have here is a 10.1-inch tablet running Windows RT with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and a release window for Autumn.

Samsung Galaxy Note III model details show Exynos Qualcomm split

There's a bit of a split appearing this week in a set of leaked distribution lists for the upcoming release of the Samsung Galaxy Note III. This set of lists tipped by SamMobile has the device split into two major categories, the first of which is headed for the UK and a variety of European markets with a Samsung Exynos OCTA processor - an updated model, at that. Inside the USA, on the other hand, there'll be a Galaxy Note III with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor - just as expected.

Nexus 7 LTE release nears as device appears in China

Unless what we're seeing this morning is a test model not meant for public consumption, it would appear quite likely that the Nexus 7 LTE is coming to stores imminently. This multi-carrier 4G LTE iteration of the 2013 reboot of the Nexus 7 works with a solution created by Qualcomm to connect with a massive cross-section of 4G LTE bands both in the USA and internationally, making it possible to deliver a single SKU - a single model, that is - that will accept SIM cards from any one of a number of carriers. This model is the one showing up in hands-on photos in China today.

Nexus 5 tipped for LG, complete with Nexus 4 pricing

Though we've already explored the possibility that Motorola might be making the next Nexus smartphone for Google, it's time for LG to have a swing at things. And why not? They've made the Nexus 4 successfully, and Google's been nothing if not satisfied with the high-powered sales stream that is the device as sold through Google Play (like the Moto X Google Play edition rumored for late 2013). That's why the "South Korean media" tip with MyDrivers this afternoon doesn't seem so far-fetched.

Nokia Lumia 1080 may aim for Galaxy Note III’s lunch this Fall

Another wave of rumors surrounds Nokia's (unconfirmed) plans for a next-generation "phablet" sized device in the near future, currently code-named Nokia Lumia 1080. This name would fit right in with the Nokia Lumia 1020, a device revealed just this past month and released to AT&T with a 41-megapixel camera in tow. Releasing a device with a display bigger than the already massive Nokia Lumia 625's 4.7-inch display would put the company squarely in front of devices like the LG Optimus G Pro.

This morning LG revealed the LG G2, their headliner for the year 2013 in smartphone form, complete with a 5.2-inch display and a back-facing set of physical buttons.

What we've learned today is what this device is made of and what makes it tick, starting with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor.

Nokia tablet (or large handset) RX-114 appears with Snapdragon 800

It's not every day that you see two tablet leaks in one day with the same processor under the hood - but that's just what's happened with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 in this afternoon's appearance of the fabled Nokia tablet. This tablet works with code-name Nokia RX-114 and likely runs either full Windows 8 or Windows RT, pushing with it the same processor we saw appear on this morning's reboot of the Kindle Fire.
