Lumia 900 images leak ahead of announcement

While the phone still has yet to be announced by Nokia, there are now some real and official images of the Lumia 900. Pocketnow.com managed to get the images ahead of Nokia's press conference which is scheduled to take place later today at CES 2012 in Las Vegas.

As you can see from the images, the Lumia 900 (also known in some circles as the Nokia Ace) looks a bit similar, at least on the chassis side, to the Nokia N9 and of course the Lumia 800 which launched in parts of Europe in November 2011. The images also confirm that AT&T will be the wireless carrier for the smartphone.

It looks like the Lumia 800 might actually not be released here in the US after all if Nokia is going to promote its successor at CES. As we have reported before, the first Nokia Lumia Windows Phone-based smartphone will be the Lumia 710 which will launch on Wednesday via T-Mobile.

We'll be at the Nokia press event at 3 pm Pacific time today at CES to give you all the details.

Would have preferred 3.7" ... I already have a HD7 which is 4.3" and it feels big and clunky, chunky and big. If this is the Lumia 900 and its the flagship I am underwhelmed no mention on storage, if it does not have a 32GB option then they have failed.

Same size plus FFC and LTE would be nice the N9 had it so no reason why the Lumia 800 could not in the same size.

The camera will most likely be the same as on the 800. There's a rumour that the body is not polycarbonate but metal but not sure if that's right given that the weight is only very slightly heavier than the 800. The screen size obviously but not sure there is that much else to be honest.

We'll see soon enough. I am loving my 800.

What's the "real" difference between 800 and 900?

You mean besides the bigger screen size and LTE? Probably a better camera, oh and the front facing camera. Ya, so far those 3 things.

Seems to me like the 900 is shaping up to be what the 800 should have been from the start. Front facing camera, possible LTE. WP7's first real attempt at serious competition for the iPhone.

Well far be it for Nokia to bring out a range of phones to cater for varying budgets.

That's Callaham for you.

Because it is. Its basically an 800 with a 4.3" display and LTE. That is the only 2 differences.

Oh and a front facing camera, makes 3.

That doesn't make it a successor. Successor means replacement and the 900 is not the 800s replacement.

+1 You can hardly have a successor to a device that only just came out. This is just a more powerful model in the same range. This is like saying the GeForce 580 is the successor to the GeForce 560... absolute nonsense. The 580 is the successor to the 480.

Looking at the specs, I wouldn't call it more powerful. It has some extra features, but the same performance.
