Did Nokia accidentally reveal a white Lumia 900?

Nokia Lumia 900 or 800 WhiteYesterday, Nokia made a lot of noise about the impending release of a white Lumia 800 Windows Phone handset, trumpeting its arrival on its Conversations blog and on its official Facebook page.

We covered the news here and included a series of images from Nokia, however a subsequent snap of the virginal phone posted to Facebook has revealed something the previous pictures did not. It’s a forward facing video-call camera, and as we all know, the Lumia 800 doesn’t have one.

However, the Lumia 900 does. Except this phone doesn’t have the AT&T branding found on the currently US-only Lumia 900, leading many to believe the phone could be making its international debut soon. If so, it won’t be coming with its 4G LTE radio, as such services are still a rarity elsewhere in the world.

The Lumia 900 has never been confirmed for launch anywhere else, but has regularly appeared and quickly disappeared from various European online retailer’s websites since then. It has also been speculated that an international version of the Lumia 900 would be released under the name Lumia 910, a phone said to have a 12-megapixel camera instead of the 8-megapixel found on the 800 and 900.

Initially expected to be part of Nokia’s grand return to Mobile World Congress, this week the existence of the Lumia 910 has been refuted by Nokia’s imaging expert Damian Dinning, who tweeted that it “didn’t exist.”

So, is this phone the Nokia 800, 900 or a Europe-bound 910? Whichever it turns out to be, the white polycarbonate body looks absolutely flawless, something Nokia themselves say was extremely difficult to achieve. They call it “extreme product making” and admit the crisp color is the result of two years work.

White phones aren’t for everyone, but Nokia’s attempt is sure to win plenty of new fans.
