We have heard mixed things about Nokia Lumia 800 sales, however most people with technical knowledge see Nokia’s first-ever Windows Phone 7 smartphones as a huge step in the right direction for the Finish company, now we are beginning to hear details regarding its bigger brother – the Lumia 900.
The Nokia Lumia 900 may be referred to as the “Ace” when it is released, apparently this smartphone will be on show at CES 2012, but thanks to a recent PocketNow article and a not-so-recent BGR post we already have an idea as to what we can expect. Before continuing please note that none of the following specifications have been officially confirmed by Nokia, so take them with a pinch of salt.
Let’s start with its most noticeable feature, the display, the Lumia 900 is said to boast a 4.3-inch display which utilizes Nokia’s ClearBlack technology and somewhat trumps the Lumia 800’s 3.7-inch display, we don’t know what resolution the 900 will support, but we hope it improves on the Lumia 800’s 480 x 800 resolution. PocketNow also suggest that the Lumia 900 will have 512MB of RAM at its disposal, an 8megapixel camera on the rear and a great-sounding 1830mAh battery. BGR has stated that we should expect a 1.4GHz Qualcomm CPU, which should run WP7 nicely, however lacks in comparison to some competing smartphones – again this may turn out to be false.
Less interesting information which has been stated includes talk of 1700MHz band and LTE connectivity and a design which weighs 160 grams and comes in at 12mm thick. Many had hoped that this smartphone would run Windows Phone 7 Tango upon release, however the rumors are currently suggesting that it will run Mango out-of-the-box, which pretty much sums up that this will not be the most exciting handset we see at CES 2012.
With all that said, Nokia spent years releasing lackluster feature phones and lost market share, so maybe a few average smartphones will solidify the company’s position – as long as they are not priced similarly to top-end Android dual-core smartphones etc the Lumia 900 may attract quite a lot of attention.
Are you excited or underwhelmed about the Nokia Lumia 900?
