The 4.3-inch LTE bigger brother to the “coming soon” Lumia 800 may be coming to Canada by the summer. According to a Carphone Warehouse listing in the UK, the Lumia 900 is going to be gracing the monarchical shores of the Queen (and Queen, the band) by June.
Though nothing specific has been detailed in terms of its hardware differentiation, we know that it will be a HSPA+ version, as LTE has not yet been deployed in England. The listing also bodes well for other locales launching the device, including Canada. It’s possible we may just see a strict repurposing of the AT&T version with the LTE intact.
The main thing differentiating the Lumia 900 from its 3.7-inch sibling is the inclusion of LTE, but the 4.3-inch screen size makes typing a lot more comfortable and web browsing/media watching a lot more enjoyable. There is also a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and a larger battery to compensate for that extra power draw from the LTE chip.
If you’re interested in the Lumia 900, we had a hands-on during CES.
