Nokia Lumia 900 made official
The gorgeous phone we all know and love as the Nokia Lumia 800 just got bigger, in the form of the Nokia Lumia 900! With the name change also come some important changes which users have been asking for ever since the Lumia 800 saw the light of day at Nokia’s CES 2012 conference and if there’s anything to be said about the device is that it’s 4.3-inch CBD AMOLED screen looks just as amazing as ever. The device itself from the picture’s we’ve seen looks huge, but not oversized and it looks like it would dwarf the iPhone 4S side to side, while not being overly big. We at Techin5 feel that 4-inches is not the norm size for screens, of not 4.3-inch.
Let’s run down the specs that everyone should already know:
- Processor – 1.4GHz Qualcomm APQ8055 + MDM9200 Processor
- Screen – 4.3-inch Clear Black Display AMOLED, 800 x 480 screen resolution
- Camera – 8 megapixel Carl Zeiss Lens back camera with dual LED Flash, 1 megapixel Front Facing Camera
- Battery – 1830mAh
- OS – Windows Phone 7.5
- Thickness – 11.4mm (0.45 inches)
As we said, the build continues to be a Polycarbonate build, which would be the same as the Lumia 800 which is great because it feels amazing in the hands. One thing to note is that the actual phone is slightly thinner than the Lumia 800 is (12.1mm versus 11.4 mm) which is a nice change, but we really hope it drops closer to 10 mm, if not below it.
Another addition to this phone will be 4G LTE, which means it will run on AT&T’s 4G LTE network’s perfectly, although speeds have yet to be tested. This is another great addition to the Windows Phone lineup, along with the HTC Titan II which was also announced a few hours prior to the Nokia Lumia 900. Apart from that, the usual Nokia apps will be preloaded onto the device such as ESPN, Spotify, Nokia Maps, Nokia Music and Nokia Drive which we did reveal in our earlier article.
No word on pricing, availability or international release information (though we don’t expect to see an International Version of this since Nokia CEO Stephen Elop said this was ‘designed for the USA’). Still, we’ll be trying to get our hands on this device when we can, though we expect this device will probably launch around March.
