China Mobile appears to have prematurely confirmed the upcoming Nokia Lumia 920T, a slightly modified version of the Lumia 920 that’s designed to work on the carrier’s unique 3G and 4G networks.
Rumors surrounding the handset began circulating last week, but both Nokia and China Mobile maintained their silence over the device. That was until the the carrier posted a picture of the handset on Chinese microblogging site Sina Weibo earlier this week, and teased its release next month.
The post didn’t last long until the carrier pulled it for unknown reasons, but by then a number of websites had already grabbed screenshots of the message (above). So what is the Lumia 920T?
Well, according to China Mobile, it boasts a 4.5-inch 1280×768 display, and a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor. Sound familiar? That’s because the handset it almost identical to the Lumia 920 that’s currently on sale in the United States. The only difference is, this one’s compatible with China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA and TD-LTE networks.
While Nokia is still yet to make the device official, China Mobile’s gaffe confirms it’s real, and that it’s coming soon. The news is sure to please many of its 700 million subscribers, who have been unable to use the Lumia 920 on its network since the handset’s release.
