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.”
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.
