Nokia Lumia fans in Europe are still waiting for the Finnish company to announce the launch of the Lumia 900 across the pond, but there have been reports that we’ll get a Lumia 910 instead. The device was expected to be almost identical to the Lumia 900, but with its LTE chip removed and a much-improved 12-megapixel camera as a substitute.
The rumor was strengthened by a listing for the device on a Dutch retailer’s website last month, but don’t let that get your hopes up. Nokia’s imaging experience expert, Damian Dinning, took to Twitter yesterday to dismiss the rumors of a 12-megapixel camera, bluntly telling one fan, “nope [it] doesn’t exist.”
The Lumia 910 wasn’t specifically mentioned, so the device itself hasn’t been ruled out, and could still be on its way to Europe without LTE. Dinning simply quashed those rumors that claimed it would feature a 12-megapixel camera, which will undoubtedly come as a disappointment to smartphone photographers.
We expect to hear more about a Lumia 900 for Europe within the coming months, with British mobile retailer Carphone Warehouse expecting the high-end Windows Phone handset to hit shops in the U.K. from June.
Are you disappointed that Nokia has ruled out the possibility of a 12-megapixel camera for its Lumia 900?
