Nokia is set to enter the phablet market, with a premium Windows Phone device set for launch in the fourth quarter of 2013, according to Mobile.
The device (not pictured above - that's just a conceptual image), which is believed to feature a six-inch screen and be priced between £400 and £500, is expected to go on sale in October.
A source said: "The fourth quarter products will be those that won¹t necessarily dominate the majority of the market but will be for those who want the best of the best. It has really hit the nail on the head with who will buy it, how it has designed it and how it will be priced. It has done all of the right research and it has got a really good picture of what the device should be."
A Nokia spokesperson said: "While we are always pleased to be asked, Nokia do not comment on market rumour or speculation."
