Ever since the Lumia 900 rumors started pouring in, following up on the launch of the Lumia 800, we were inclined to believe (taking hints, actually), that the next Nokia Windows Phone will be made of the same polycarbonate material as the Lumia 800.
Not according to New York Times! According to their sources, the Nokia Windows Phone called Lumia 900 will be announced “on Monday at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas”. It will be sold in the U.S. by AT&T and, instead of the same material used in the production of the Lumia 800, the Lumia 900 will be “a sleek metallic Windows Phone”.
We’ve instantly updated our own mock-up to reflect this new rumor. Whether it will be more appealing to customers than the matte polycarbonate is for the market to decide. However, according to the Lumia 900 details we’ve recently seen, it is a great achievement to get the “metallic” Lumia 900 to the market weighing just 18 grams more than the Lumia 800, considering the new material rumored as well as the larger dimensions.
