Nokia preparing Lumia 1820 smartphone and Lumia 2020 tablet for MWC 2014?

Nokia preparing Lumia 1820 smartphone and Lumia 2020 tablet for MWC 2014?With Nokia having unleashed the Lumia 2520 tablet and Lumia 1520 phablet at Nokia World and now facing being assimilated into the Borg that is Microsoft, it's understandable that new device rumours have tapered off lately.

But not entirely, as it turns out: a fresh rumour has hit the web surrounding a pair of new Lumias Nokia apparently has planned for next year's Mobile World Congress, namely the Lumia 1820 and Lumia 2020.

It's a measure of how thoroughly Nokia has muddled up its naming convention that just hearing the model name pretty much tells you nothing any more about what you're actually dealing with, so let us explain.

The Lumia 2020, we're told, is the smaller 8in tablet Nokia is supposed to be working on to launch beside the full-size Lumia 2520. According to the (unnamed) tipster behind all this, it'll run a Snapdragon 800 processor and come with a full HD resolution just like its big brother.

Given the smaller screen size, though, that'll make for a higher pixel density, while the Lumia 2020 will reportedly also be faster, and will come with stylus support.

We're given less to go on regarding the Lumia 1820, just that it's Nokia's next imaging flagship and will feature a metal unibody and Lytro-style camera.

Both are said to be pencilled in for launch at MWC 2014, which runs from 24-27 February, but it's worth noting that even the site that first published the rumours, NokiaPowerUser, says this isn't coming from a known tipster and so can't vouch for its validity.

Even if it is just an educated guess, we'd say it's probably a sensible one – at least regarding the smaller tablet anyway. The more interesting question is will they still appear carrying Nokia's name? Given how long these major corporate transformations take (remember Sony Ericsson?), we'd say they probably will, but they could well be the last major releases to do so.

Is it just me or are Nokia getting more like Samsung and releasing a new phone almost every week?
