Rumor: Nokia Lumia 910 with 12 MP camera will be available in Europe in May
If for some reason you simply can’t get enough of Eldar Murtazin-sourced leaks today even after reading about the rumored specs of the Samsung Galaxy S III, then listen up.
The Russian journalist also uncovered the fact that Nokia is working on a new Windows Phone. It will be called Lumia 910, and will become available in Europe in May, if you believe Murtazin. The Nokia Lumia 910 will come with a 12 MP camera, he says, staying mum on other details.
However, we can infer those from the phone’s model number. This will clearly be just a slightly upgraded Lumia 900, in which case it very well may be that the only improvement will be the camera. As Nokia is known for its great cameras outside the US (because it’s hardly known in the US at all at this point), this may be a good selling point for the upcoming smartphone. We can also assume that the LTE support found in AT&T’s Lumia 900 will be dropped as there’s no use for it in most of Europe, but the 4.3-inch screen should probably stay. As for other specs, your guess is as good as ours.
This is interesting because yesterday in the UK, the Carphone Warehouse put out a special page for the Nokia Lumia 900, as we reported. In it, the retailer let us know that the phone would arrive in the UK in June.
Now if the (upgraded) Lumia 910 arrives in May (so earlier), will there even be any need for the Lumia 900 to make it to Europe? That’s a good question, especially seeing as how the Carphone Warehouse has since removed all traces of that Lumia 900 page. The plot thickens, as they say.
One way or the other, it’s pretty clear that a higher-end Nokia Lumia Windows Phone is headed to Europe by this summer.
