Nokia’s Lumia 800 Windows Phone device (the first in what’s set to be a long partnership based on Microsoft’s latest mobile OS) is still fresh on the shelves, but may be superceded by a successor sooner than we thought!
Swiss telecoms giants Swisscom (inventive name! – ed.) let slip details of the Nokia Lumia 900 on their @swisscom_care Twitter account.
According to their tweet, the follow-up handset will launch in February.
While sharing a similar look to the earlier Lumia, the 900 will bump up the screen size from 3.7 inches to 4.3 inches, and will make use of a ClearBlack AMOLED display.
Perhaps more excitingly, the phone will come packed with the latest Windows Phone OS update, “Tango”, expected to bring a raft of new functionality to the Windows Phone scene.
As far as rumours goes, this one looks legit, so expect to see this one pop up at either CES in Vegas next January, and almost certainly Mobile World Congress in Barcelona come February of next year.
