Finland based HMD Global began advertising and selling Nokia branded phones from December 2016. Prior to it, Microsoft had acquired Nokia in 2014. Before its acquisition, Nokia was reportedly working on some tablets. Only the Nokia N1 tablet was introduced in the market, but other tablets that carried Illusionist, Mercury, Pine and Vega/Atlas codenames were cancelled. As many as five videos showing the prototype of the Nokia Vega tablet has surfaced today.

In 2015, tipster Evan Blass had released a tweet to reveal that Nokia had cancelled the aforementioned tablets. The images of the Nokia Mercury tablet with Windows RT onboard had surfaced in the previous year. It was powered by an Intel Atom Z3795 SoC which was assisted by 1 GB / 2 GB of RAM.

The Nokia Vega tablet had a model number of RX-107. While current tablets feature slimmer bezels and some of them come in 2-in-1 tablet form factor, the cancelled Nokia Vega has humongous bezels and it is packed with uninteresting specifications. However, had it been launched around 2014, it may have achieved some kind of success. Also Read - HMD Global confirms Nokia XR20 is coming to India soon: Check expected launch date, more
The Nokia Vega features a 6.6-inch screen and it was fueled by quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor with 2GB of RAM. The slate included an inbuilt storage of 32 GB and it was also equipped with a microSD card slot. It had a rear camera of 8-megapixel and a front snapper of 1-megapixel. The device was loaded with Windows RT. It supported magnetic charger and it was also equipped with NFC.
At present, HMD Global has no plans on launching on tablet devices. Apart from selling smartphones, the Finnish firm has also refreshed versions of older feature phones such as Nokia 3310 4G and Nokia 8810 4G.
