Nokia accidentally leaks an international white Lumia 900?
Yesterday, Nokia broke the news about a brand new snowy white version of its first Windows Phone handset, the Nokia Lumia 800. The company bragged about it on its official blog, but also on Facebook. The picture it posted on Facebook is of a white handset, but - interestingly - it’s obviously not the Lumia 800. Actually, chances are, it’s the Nokia Lumia 900.

How do we know? Easy - the Lumia 800 doesn’t have a front facing camera, while the 900 has it and the handset on the picture has a front snapper as well. So unless Nokia is planning on bringing a modified Nokia Lumia 800 with a front-facing camera, we’re looking at the white Lumia 900.

Now, there’s more spice to that leak than just the fact that it shows a white Lumia 900 - it’s a white Lumia 900 without AT&T branding. That’s important because it hints that the phone could come to countries other than the United States. Maybe hardware-wise it could differ, as it wouldn’t make sense to launch it with LTE radios in Europe where countries haven’t yet adopted the 4G standard widely. So there you have it, what are your suggestions - is that the Lumia 900?

Thanks, anonymous!

It is the 900.. The micro-USB port does not have a cover while the 800 have two flaps on the top this only have one... Which is for the micro sim

I don't believe in accidental leaks. I believe in purposely leaked to hype.

Wow, when I read the article a few days ago, didn't notice all those little things you guys are pointing out. I now notice the FFC, the capacitive bottons close to the edge, the screen not being curve, the uncovered port. This is so NOT the Lumia 800! I also believe this is not accidental - so what and who cares! But the one that gives me comfort is the observation that it does not have the AT&T branding! Welcome to the world, Lumia 900!

Yeah on Facebook they leak too many stuff. I don't think it's accidental. Perhaps the same marketing leak strategy like Microsoft do.

boy this phone looks like a doctors sterile phone or ladies phone i do not think many guys would want a white phone especially if a man does sports or works with dirty materials but it does look cool.
