Nokia Lumia 900 to Be Lumia 800 With a Bigger Screen?

By Sam Gibbs on at

After we caught sight of the Lumia 900 in a Nokia developer video, the rumours of a true Nokia Windows Phone 7 flagship have been circling. The latest on the grapevine suggests a 4.3-inch device with Lumia 800 DNA.

Boy Genius has it that the Lumia 900 will pack a 1.4GHz processor, probably single-core, a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED screen and an 8-megapixel camera -- effectively a Lumia 800 with a bigger screen. The device will ship sometime in 'early 2012' in the US, which might mean we'll get it slightly sooner, remembering that 'early' 2012 encompasses at least three months up to March. It'll apparently come packing Windows Phone Tango, which is pretty much a given at this stage.

Regardless of the so-so specs, let's hope the Lumia 900 really comes and blows our socks off like a true flagship device should. We liked the Lumia 800, but it'll start to look fairly out-dated pretty quickly if the pace of Android development keeps up. [Boy Genius Report]
