We’ve sure got the Nokia Lumia 2520 (above) filling the full-sized tablet spot in the brand’s lineup, but rumors have also been pretty insistent that Nokia’s got some more tablet action in the works, and that might include a device that could provide the company’s supporters with a slightly smaller option. Recently, there’s been talk of a model codenamed Illusionist, which could be a tablet somewhere in the eight-inch range. We might finally have a firm figure for that measurement, as we see evidence of an 8.3-inch Nokia model RX-115.
Well, to be fair the name “Nokia” doesn’t show up in this listing, but we’ve seen that model number RX-115 pop up before, as part of a group that eventually spawned the Lumia 2520. Here, the device is clearly described as having an 8.3-inch 1080p LCD and taking a SIM for cellular connectivity.
However, it is interesting to note that the RX-115 is referred to here as a cellphone (or “cellphone phone,” for some extra redundancy) rather than a tablet device. We’re guessing that there’s really nothing to read into that, and it’s just a general description for customs, but you never do know – an 8.3-inch jumbo phablet? Like we said, it’s probably nothing.
In any case, the timing here’s shaping up nicely enough to suggest that we might just see Nokia unveil this guy sometime during the January/February expo season.
