Nokia Lumia 900 to be upsized 800 with LTE
The Nokia Ace has had some of its few remaining details hashed out in a leak Tuesday. Now known by PocketNow to be one and the same as the Lumia 900, the AT&T version of the Windows Phone as mocked up would largely be an upsized version of the Lumia 800 with LTE for 4G. It's believed to have 1,700MHz 3G support that could let it run on T-Mobile 3G for those who buy unlocked.
The Ace would be as thick as its cousin despite the 4.3-inch screen, although at 5.6 ounces it would weigh just 0.6 ounces more. Inside, it would still have the 1.4GHz Snapdragon, 512MB of RAM, and eight-megapixel camera. A 1,830mAh battery would be larger than usual and likely there to offset the battery-hungry LTE.
As mentioned in some earlier tips, the Ace would use an interim version of 7.5 that supports LTE rather than the Tango update expected sometime later in the year.
Nokia is presumed to be showing the Ace at its presentation ahead of CES, on January 9. AT&T is rumored to be starting sales on or near March 18, although this could easily be subject to change. A variant on the Lumia 710 known as the 719 might make its appearance at the same time, but is far from confirmed.
