Phablets, smartphone handsets with bigger screen size with capabilities of tablet, have become more popular in recent years. While other smartphone rivals like Sony with Xperia Z Ultra (featured 6.4 inch screen) and Samsung’s Galaxy Mega (5.8 inch screen) are driving the smartphone market to a new horizon, it seems Nokia also trying to firmly keep a position in “Who says, Size doesn’t matter?” competition. Nokia’s latest smartphone, Lumia 1020 was released two weeks ago, which receives mixed reaction .The Samsung’s New Galaxy Note 3 is all set to launch in September and we would assume this is the perfect time when Nokia will want to put its phablet on sale.
