Rumor: Nokia to reveal new high end smartphone soon

Nokia has been promoting its Windows Phone-powered Lumia line of smartphones pretty aggressively since last October when the line-up debuted at its Nokia World event. It launched the Lumia 800 in Europe in November and brought the Lumia 710 to the US in January. In March, the company will launch the Lumia 900 in the US.

But does Nokia have yet another mobile phone announcement in the works? That's the word from Forbes.com who reports via unnamed sources that Nokia will reveal at least one new high end smartphone in a few weeks. The reveal will be made at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain which runs from February 27 to March 1.

The article doesn't say if Nokia's new smartphone will use Microsoft's Windows Phone operating system but it does say that the device will have an "unusual software feature normally found only on high end smartphones."

There have been a number of recent Internet rumors about a possible Lumia 910 device which would have the same hardware as the Lumia 900 but with a higher end 12 megapixel rear camera. However, this week Nokia's Damian Dinning, the head of Imaging Experience for Nokia Smart devices, stated on his Twitter page that the Lumia 910 doesn't even exist.
