Just yesterday, British retailer Carphone Warehouse launched a new page on its website that allowed customers to pre-register for the Nokia Lumia 900, which it suggested would arrive in the U.K. in June. However, one “mobile insider” claims Europe won’t get the Lumia 900, but the Lumia 910 instead, equipped with a much-improved 12-megapixel camera.
Eldar Murtazin suggested in a message on Twitter that Europeans don’t need a Lumia 900 when they have the Lumia 910 coming in May:
“Who needs lumia 900 in june if they want to launch lumia 910 (12mpx) in may? Europe”
However, based on Murtazin’s most recent reliability, SlashGear is skeptical of his claims:
The Nokia Lumia 910 has never been announced before and given Murtazin’s hit-and-miss track record, more misses than hits as of late, we’ll have to take this rumor with a grain of salt. He doesn’t reveal much in the way of details on this device except that it will sport a 12-megapixel camera instead of the 8-megapixel camera that’s on the Lumia 900.
But maybe there’s some truth in Murtazin’s claims. Here in the U.K., there are currently no LTE networks, so the Lumia 900’s LTE capabilities will be wasted. Without these, the device is much the same as the Lumia 800, with a larger display and a front-facing camera.
Could it be possible, then, that Nokia plans to substitute that LTE chip with a 12-megapixel camera to make the device more appealing to us Europeans?
We’ll have to wait and see, but we’re hoping to hear more about the Lumia 900’s international rollout — and possibly the Lumia 910 — at Mobile World Congress in February.
