While Americans eagerly await Nokia’s Lumia 900 Windows Phone, Europeans have something even better to look forward to: the Lumia 910.
The newer model will sport a 12 megapixel shooter, an upgrade over the 8MP camera on the Lumia 800 and 900, according to a product page by Dutch retailer Typhone.
We’ve asked Nokia to comment on the new model, but we don’t really expect the company to reveal much so soon. The existence of the Lumia 910 was also hinted at by Mobile-Review’s Eldar Murtazin (someone who is well known for his sources among European carriers and phone makers), who said that the Lumia 910 will hit Europe in May.
If Typhone’s product listing is correct, the Lumia 910 will also forgo the 900′s LTE functionality. That’s not a huge deal, though, since LTE isn’t yet widely deployed across Europe.
AT&T is expected to launch the Lumia 900 in the U.S. around March 19, and it may even retail for a low $99 with contract, according to a recent report. The phone was a surprise hit at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show — partially because there weren’t many other new phones at the show, but also because it was a surprisingly sexy Windows Phone device.
