A couple weeks back we got a brief look at what purported to be a Windows RT Nokia tablet. A few specs were mentioned, like how it would run a Snapdragon 800 SoC and feature a 10-inch 1080p display, but we neither had a very complete picture of the device, nor had reason to be particularly confident in the source. Today, further confirmation keeps making this Nokia tablet sound more and more real, now tipped to be under development as codename Sirius.
That’s one of those Nokia codenames mentioned in a recent leak. This source reaffirms a 10.1-inch 1080p screen, and one that’s supposed to be especially bright for optimized outdoor visibility. A Snapdragon 800 pops up again, along with the claim that Sirius will get 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage (microSD expandable). Don’t count on any PureView magic here, with a modest six-megapixel main camera and two-megapixel front-facer.
Sirius would weigh just over a pound and measure-in thinner than the iPad 4. Like we saw in that previous leak (again displayed above), the tablet would be colored, just like we’ve seen from Lumia phones themselves.
Native battery life should push 10 hours, even with LTE enabled, and Nokia could release a keyboard accessory that includes its own battery for stretching that out even longer. Rumors continue to point to a September 26 launch.
