High-end Nokia Lumia 800 sequel confirmed

November 16th, 2011

Nokia Lumia 800On the day that Nokia hopes to woo customers with its freshly-released Lumia 800 smartphone, the Finns’ have accidentally confirmed that something better could soon be on its way.

Speaking with French paper ‘LesEchos’, the head of Nokia France, Paul Amsellem, let slip of a future higher-end Nokia Lumia handset. As spotted by WMPoweruser, Amsellem described the Nokia Lumia 800 as a BWM 5 series, saying: “It’s just the equivalent of the BWM 5 Series. We will soon have a full range with a Series 7 and Series 3.”

The Series 3 is presumably the lower-end Nokia Lumia 710, and the so-called “Series 7” device the much-mooted Nokia Ace.

Likely to hit the market as the Nokia 900, the phone reportedly packs a large 4.3-inch ClearBlack display, paired with a 1.4GHz processor and Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) OS. There’s also whispers of an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with Carl Zeiss optics and HD video,1 6GB of internal memory, HSPA+ connectivity and a hefty 1800mAh battery.

If that hasn’t got you excited enough, Amsellem also confirmed that Nokia will be bringing a Windows 8 slate to market in June 2012 – the first confirmation that the Finns’ are planning to move into the tablet space.

There’s no word as to when Nokia will be launching its high-end Lumia 800 successor, but we’ll bring you more details as soon as we get them.
