Nokia Lumia 825 tipped as quad-core budget phablet


Back in early July, before the Lumia 1020 was even official, we ran across some rumors attempting to identify what’s next for Nokia, naming a handful of model numbers and screen sizes, but declining to go into detail on any other hardware specifics. Today one of those devices, the Lumia 825, returns to our attention, starring in some new rumors that paint the phone as a budget-priced phablet.

While the 825 may arrive with a big 5.2-inch 720p display, the bigger deal could be the Snapdragon 400 SoC it’s suggested to have, being one of the first quad-core Windows Phone handsets once the GDR3 update (with its quad-core support) arrives.

Beyond that, though, this rumor starts sounding more and more like guesswork; a few features like Miracast support are mentioned, but it sounds like those are just being pulled from a Snapdragon 400 fact sheet, rather than referencing any specific information about the 825.

As for a release, being tied to GDR3 constrains when the 825 might launch. For now, it’s sounding like sometime this fall is a possibility.
