You remember Nokia, right? The company which was acquired by Microsoft back in 2014. It seems that before getting acquired, Nokia was working on a bunch of tablets one of which actually made it to the market. The rest of the tablets were cancelled by the company.
Popular smartphone insider, Evleaks shared the news with the world back in 2015 about the cancelled Nokia tablets codenamed Illusionist, Mercury, Pine, and Vega/Atlas.
Nokia only released a single tablet, the Lumia 2520 (Sirius)…but it killed off at least 4 more: Illusionist, Mercury, Pine, and Vega/Atlas

Renders of the tablet Mercury was leaked the following fall but we never got a chance to take a look at other tablets. Fortunately, someone got their hands on a prototype of the Vega tablet recently and shared the details online. The tablet doesn’t stand a chance against today’s tablets but it might have been a success if Nokia had launched it back in 2014-15. You can head below to take a look at the pictures of the tablet as well as demo videos.
The tablet was powered by NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad Core processor and had 2 GB of RAM as well as 32 GB of ROM which was expandable. The tablet had a 6.6-inch display and ran on Windows RT (Build 6.2.9200.16424). Nokia also added an 8 MP rear camera as well as a 1 MP front camera to the tablet. These specs might not be good for today but remember this tablet was supposed to launch in 2014.
