The handset is available there as of today, in black, cyan, and white, becoming the fifth Lumia device launched on the Chinese market (after the Lumia 800, Lumia 800c, Lumia 710, and Lumia 610). Its official price is 4,599 yuan – meaning $720, which is a bit steep.
There are no hardware changes on the Chinese version of the 900, but the smartphone does come with locally relevant apps, including Sina Weibo, Baidu Search, QQ IM, and Alipay.
In addition to introducing the Lumia 900 in China, Nokia has also unveiled a new Bluetooth headset. Called Nokia Reaction, the new headset can connect via NFC to your smartphone, and lets you “answer a call simply by placing it within your ear.” The Reaction will be released in China first, for an undisclosed price. A video preview of it can be watched below:
