Citing “sources from the tablet sector”, Digitimes reports an incoming wave of these larger smartphones – or phablets as they have been dubbed – could undermine 7-inch tablet demand, particularly if the phablets are offered with a telecom package.

In recent times, Samsung has launched the 6.3-inch Mega and is expected to unveil the new Galaxy Note next month, while Sony and China-based Huawei have also jumped into the market with the Xperia ZU and Ascend Mate, respectively.

Nokia last month announced the Lumia 925, which is essentially an affordable phablet with 4G connectivity, while BlackBerry and HTC are also widely-reported to be about to enter this space.
