|Lumia 1820 could look like?: ConceptPhones|
While we still wait for the public availability of Nokia's first Phablets: The Lumia 1520/1320 and the their first tablet device: the Lumia 2520.
Rumour has already sprung up about the next devices to "surface" from the once Mobile giants.
The guys at NokiaPowerUser got tipped by an anonymous source that Nokia will unveil 2 devices; An 8inch tablet and an imaging centric device (probably a 1020 successor, or maybe too soon?)
According to the source...
"Lumia 2020 will be the name of Nokia’s rumored 8-inch Tablet. This Tablet will run on Snapdragon 800 and will have a 1080p resolution display. It will be faster and have higher PPI display than Lumia 2520 and will come with stylus support. This Tablet and Nokia’s next imaging flagship Lumia 1820 with metal unibody and Lytro-style camera will be unveiled during MWC in 2014."
I would take this with a lot of salt, like a lot, especially since Nokia will be formally handing over its Mobile division to Microsoft early next year, so I don't see Nokia making any presentations at MWC (unless its the former Nokia staff wearing Microsoft badges doing the presentation), but we will see.
The source talks about an 8 inch tablet with 1080p resolution running on Qualcomm's SnapDragon 800 processor, again if by then Microsoft has taken over, this could well be the Surface Mini?? If so, I wouldn't mind getting my hands on one...

The other device rumored to be unveiled in February is a Lumia 1820 device, said to be an imaging flagship device, maybe a 1020/1520 successor, it could be a phablet with the same camera sensor from the 1020 or something higher?
It is rumored to have an all metallic unibody (probably aluminum).
If this rumor is true, this Lumia 1820 could be the first device we will see running WindowsPhone 8.1.
Personally, I'm using the 1020 and not upgrading until I see a 1020 with 1080p resolution and Quad-Core Snapdragon and maybe even thinner!
No rush, let's wait and see.
