File this under rumor, but another low resolution photo of Nokia’s upcoming tablet has leaked onto the Chinese site Ctech. The image comes from the same leaker of the supposed Nokia smartwach prototype a few days ago and it simply shows the back of the tablet, albeit cutoff.
Assuming the image is accurate, we can see what appears to be the standard Nokia SIM door in to the left, a headphone jack and an oddly designed piece on the back surface of the tablet. To our eyes the pop-out piece looks like a kickstand, similar to the Microsoft Surface but not nearly as large. However, we have not heard of any such feature yet for the tablet, supposedly dubbed the Lumia 2520.
Supposed Nokia 1080P wallpaper for their tablet
In related news, full 1080P Nokia wallpaper from the device has also been leaked, though it is so generic it is near impossible to confirm. The wallpaper is simply various bold colors with the Nokia logo emblazoned in the middle. Being far from detailed, anyone could have made this on their own time, so we’ll just put this under a curiosity for now.
The Windows RT 8.1 tablet, which will come in various colors, is reported by the Verge to have an optional charging cover, which will wrap around the device and offer a keyboard as well. According to Paul Thurrott, the tablet will feature “a quad-core Qualcomm 8974 (ARM) chipset. The 10.1-screen is a 1920 x 1080 IPS screen” with a Zeiss camera in the rear.
Nokia is expected to reveal their Lumia tablet in full in the coming weeks in Abu Dhabi, along with their phablet Lumia the 1520 and numerous other devices. We’ll of course be there live to cover the event, finally answering some remaining questions about this new lineup for Nokia.
