Nokia Lumia 2020 8in tablet and Lumia 1820 smartphone set for MWC 2014 unveiling

As well as the new flagship Nokia Lumia 1820, Microsoft's recently acquired smartphone arm is soon to release a rumoured 8in tablet, the Nokia Lumia 2020, it is believed.

The 1820, an update of the 1020 smartphone and the 2020, an possible downsizing of the recently released Lumia 2520 10in tablet, will both be unveiled at next year's Mobile World Congress in February 2014, according to a NokiaPowerUser source.

"Lumia 2020 will be the name of Nokia's rumoured 8-inch tablet. This tablet will run on Snapdragon 800 and will have a 1080p resolution display," said the source. "It will be faster and have higher PPI display than Lumia 2520 and will come with stylus support."

"This tablet and Nokia's next imaging flagship Lumia 1820 with metal unibody and Lytro-style camera will be unveiled during MWC in 2014."

The February event quickly follows the unveiling of the 6-inch Nokia Lumia 1520 and the Lumia 2520 tablet at a Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi last month, but nevertheless it seems like a new range will be coming just four months later.

A few details of an 8-inch Nokia Lumia 2020 has already been leaked online, which has suggested that the device is codenamed "Nokia Illusionist".

The info came from the Twitter account of notorious tipster - @evleaks. Last week the person behind the account tweeted: "Nokia Illusionist is going to be their second RT tablet, but in the eight-inch class".

Presently, no information on either of the new devices has been released by Nokia, so names and dates do remain speculation.
