Nokia’s ‘Sirius’ Windows RT tablet specs leaked ahead of September launch

Nokia’s plans to launch a Windows RT tablet are well documented but it is for the first time we are getting some confirmations about what it would actually look like. Codenamed Sirius, Nokia’s first Windows RT tablet will feature a 10.1-inch display and will be designed around its Lumia smartphones, The Verge reports.

Sirius was among the codenames of upcoming Nokia devices that were leaked last week and it will be lighter and thinner than the current iPad and will sport a 10.1-inch 1920×1080 pixel display. Nokia will also adorn it with a 6-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front facing camera. It will be running on Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 800 chipset with 2GB of RAM and will apparently gun for 10 hours of battery life with LTE connectivity. It will have 32GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot, a micro USB port and a micro HDMI connector.

Nokia will also launch a keyboard accessory that will come with additional battery. It will be priced competitively with the iPad and will be launched at an event in New York in September, which is currently scheduled for September 26. Nokia is also expected to launch mode devices at that event including a 6-inch phablet codenamed Bandit at that event.
