A hitherto unseen handset from Nokia, possibly dubbed the Lumia 900 or the Lumia Ace, has been leaked in a promo video posted on the Nokia Developer YouTube account.
The blue-hued kit, which shows up only briefly during the clip, bears similar design aesthetics as the Lumia 800, but boasts curved edges at the top and bottom and a possibly taller, wider shell.
While that doesn’t necessarily mean the phone is real and not some prototype, the fact that Nokia has already taken down the video and uploaded a new one with the mystery handset replaced by the Lumia 800 tells us there’s got to be some veracity to the revelation, even if it was accidental.
So does Nokia still have another Windows Phone smartie up its sleeve? Well, it’s definitely not resting on its laurels, which is fairly evident from the poor job it’s been doing at keeping its efforts a secret after another phone dubbed the Champagne cropped up online last week.
Details are still thin on the ground as to what we can expect from the Lumia 900/Ace. However, if rumours are anything to go by, it might pack a 4.3-inch AMOLED display, a 1.4GHz processor and an eight-megapixel camera.
It’s doubtful, though, that we’ll hear about any more Nokia Windows Phone devices – not officially, anyway - for the remainder of the year. The earliest date we might see anything concrete is likely to be the Mobile World Congress in February. Whatever the case, you’ll be among the first to know as soon as we do.
