Finland-based HMD Global is advertising and selling Nokia-branded smartphone since December 2016. Prior to that, Nokia was acquired by Microsoft in 2014. Before the acquisition, Nokia was reportedly working on tablets which didn’t see the light of the day.
While the company has launched one tablet so far — Nokia N1, the other tablets carrying codenames Illusionist, Mercury, Pine, and Vega/Atlas were canceled. Now a few videos have surfaced online revealing the prototype of Nokia ‘Vega’ tablet in action.
The video shows Nokia Vega tablet carrying model number RX-107. The tablet featured humongous bezels, especially comparing it with the current generation of tablets that focuses on slimmer bezels. Given that the tablet was to launch in 2014, we can look past those bezels.
As for the specifications, the Nokia Vega sports a 6.6-inch display and was powered by Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor. It packed 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage with support for memory expansion.
The device was running Windows RT operation system, which was a mobile operating system developed by Microsoft. It was an edition of Windows 8.X build for the 32-bit ARM processor-based devices. The ‘Vega’ tablet also featured an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1-megapixel front-facing snapper.
Currently, HMD Global has no plans of launching tablet devices. The Finnish company is currently focused on smartphones and seems like it is aiming to grab market share in the mid-range segment. Apart from launching new phones, the company also launched refreshed versions of some of its iconic older feature phones such as the Nokia 3310 4G and Nokia 8810 4G.
