The tablet was planned to be released in 2014, but Microsoft canceled everything. Now the prototype device lit up on the Internet. Nokia, whose mobile business was acquired by Microsoft in 2014, had been actively developing not only smartphones but also tablets. One of them called Lumia 2520 on the Windows RT operating system was released in 2013. But as it turned out, in subsequent years, the Finnish manufacturer planned to release a few more devices from this category, which were later canceled by Microsoft.

In 2015, a well-known insider, Evan Blass, wrote that Nokia canceled the development of four tablets under the code names Illusionist, Mercury, Pine, and Vega/Atlas, and after a few months published a render of an unlisted Mercury device. Now we have the opportunity to look at the prototype of another Vega tablet – apparently, someone recently tested the device and posted the information on the Internet.

The prototype is running Windows RT, which, as we know, has not received the recognition of users due to many limitations. Vega (RX-107) is equipped with a 6.6-inch display, but at the expense of large frames, it looks much larger. As for the hardware, it is by today’s standards, of course, weak, but at that time it was a fairly productive device. The tablet is equipped with a quad-core processor NVIDIA Tegra 3, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. In addition, there are two cameras – the main one with 8 megapixels and the front one with 1 megapixel. It is noteworthy that Nokia engineers made sure that the tablet had an NFC module and a 3G modem.
