Report says BlackBerry, Nokia, maybe even Apple to launch phablets beginning in Q4

iPhone 6 Details

Believe it or not, there are still big-name smartphone makers that haven’t yet jumped on the phablet bandwagon — but that may change beginning later this year. A new report from Digitimes cites the website’s customary unnamed industry sources in suggesting that Nokia, BlackBerry and maybe even Apple will begin launching new smartphones with displays measuring 5 inches or more beginning in the fourth quarter this year. BlackBerry is working on the A10, which BGR exclusively revealed in a recent report, and Nokia is said to be prepping a phablet that will launch at the end of the year, according to Digitimes. The site also says Apple may be toying with an iPhone featuring a larger display, but such a device wouldn’t launch until the second half of 2014 at the earliest.
