Bigger is better, right? Then it should be no surprise that the logical next step for the Lumia line after the 3.7″ Lumia 800 is a 4.3″ Lumia 900. This is what PocketNow has heard, and if it holds true would probably do a lot to further the company’s inroads into North America.

The full rumoured specs are pretty standard stuff: a 4.3″ ClearBlack AMOLED display, 512MB RAM, a 8MP back camera and gorgeous multi-coloured polycarbonate shell. The Lumia 900 is also supposed to launch with Tango, the next version of Windows Phone.

We’re willing to bet we’ll hear more at CES in January, so keep your ears to the ground — or to the internet.

    I don’t see the appeal of this phone. The specs are behind a high end android, single core processor, the bezel is huge (tons of wasted space) and compared to Android devices, the phone is thick and a bit heavy.

      You are very funny. Do you really think all Android phone are lighter than Windows Phones?

      You shouldn’t waste precious CPU cycles writing insipid comments like this.

    Hopefully they make it thinner, but with the same build quality. Also I know that wp7 runs smooth on lower specs, but those seem very low for a supposed flagship device in 2012…

    Still, finally they realized that they needed an adequately sized screen so that’s a plus.

    It’s not always about specs Peter. A phone with a faster CPU doesn’t necessarily make it a better phone. Windows Phone 7 is a well-optimized OS for its hardware. I’d prefer to have a phone that is optimized really well rather than having a phone with high specs that will just eat away battery life.

      Even with crappy specs WP7 devices don’t last any longer on the battery.

      @bob
      Longer than what? They last about the same or better than similar generation phones.

  • Rich

    High specs = more battery life in terms of cores.
    The only major battery drain right now though is LTE hardware.. otherwise battery performance has been continually improving with new hardware.

    I have never seen a product launch take so long. Come on Nokia, what are you still hugging the rotting corpse of your old OS?
