Nokia just announced the Lumia 930, Lumia 630 and Lumia 635, but it looks like the company may already be hard at work developing a next-gen super-powerful Windows Phone. The mysterious new device was spotted earlier this week on GFXBench running Windows Phone with Qualcomm’s latest quad-core processor.
The device, which is referred to here as the “Qualcomm LiQUID” offers specs beyond anything you’ll find in today’s typical smartphones, including a 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 CPU, an Adreno 420 graphics processor, and a 2K display. We’re guessing the new phone will launch running Windows Phone 8.1, though it could be a while before it hits the market.
This is the first we’re hearing about this device, but GSMArena seems to think this could a rumored smartphone called the Lumia 1820. Based on that name we’re imagining a massive new Windows Phone 8.1 device at least the same size as Nokia’s 6-inch Lumia 1520 (pictured above) if not bigger. It also makes sense that this could be a Nokia handset, especially because the company is constantly pushing the hardware limitations of Windows Phone — and it makes sense that it will continue to do so.
There’s no word on when the device will be announced, though considering Nokia just unveiled three new phones today it could be a while before the company makes another big announcement.
