Nokia Ace / Lumia 900 specs leak, 4.3-inch display and 8-megapixel camera reportedly on boardAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
The Nokia Ace has been the focus of a couple of different leaks over the past week, and today we've got another to add to the pile. A new report out of Pocketnow claims to have the lowdown on the spec sheet for the LTE-capable Ace for AT&T, which reportedly features the codename "Eloko" but will come to market as the Lumia 900. According to the site, the Ace/Lumia 900 will pack a screen that measures around 4.3 inches and has a WVGA resolution. Around back, we're told to expect an 8-megapixel camera, while the device's internals are said to include 512MB of RAM and an 1,830mAh battery. The whole package will allegedly come in at about 12 millimeters thick. It's also said that Windows Phone 7.5 Mango will be preloaded onto the device and, although it'll likely be locked to AT&T out of the box, the handset may pack in the 1700MHz band necessary for T-Mobile 3G connectivity. Above is a mockup of the Ace/Lumia 900 next to a Lumia 800 that was pieced together from the images that leaked last week.
Although we'll have to wait for the Ace/Lumia 900 to be made nice and official — which may happen at CES next week, if the rumor mill is correct — before getting too worked up, Nokia's new flagship Windows Phone may be the one for fans of Microsoft's mobile OS to get if the claims surrounding its feature list hold true. The good news is that the Ace is rumored to be launching as soon as the middle of March, so those of you drooling over the device may not have long to wait before being able to stop drooling and start buying. What do you all think? Anyone think they'd be interested in picking up one of these devices if the rumored specs are accurate?
