SOif you are a Nokia Lumia owner living in the US just search for the application in the Marketplace to grab it now.

The Nokia Lumia 900 doesn’t have a PenTile display

Ok, file this into the “not yet 100% confirmed” but based on a macro shot of the Nokia Lumia 900 screen shot by the boys at the Verge, the AMOLED panel on the handset doesn’t exhibit the RGBG Martix of a Pentile panel but instead seems to be a RGB martix so this means that Samsung is apparently providing Nokia with a Super AMOLED Plus equivalent screen. Check out how the S AMOLED + compares to a Pentile panel here (click on the images for full size).

Once again this isn’t 100% confirmation but if this turns out to be the case then I can safely say that my two Lumia 800 devicesfeel slightly less exciting tonight. Anyway,I hope to have more confirmation soon. More Nokia Lumia 900 tech specs here.

UPDATE: It’s been officially confirmed by Nokia that it is not a PenTile Matrix panel.

UPDATE: Two more close up picture after the break showing the what clearly looks like an RGB matrix:

Nokia Lumia 900 announced: Specifications and Video

There you have it folks. The mighty Nokia Lumia 900 has just been unveiled by Stephen Elop in Las Vegas a today and it looks exactly like you might have expected it to be. It’s a slightly bigger Lumia 800 thanks to the 4.3″ AMOLED screen (I’m guessing that’s a unfortunately a PenTile Matrix panel..) and packs an Qualcomm MDM9200 LTE multi-modem alongside an APQ8055 Snapdragon like the HTC Titan II announced earlier today. The battery has a capacity of 1830mha (the Titan II is 1730mha) and it will come in two colors; Black and Cyan. It will be available exclusively on AT&T in the US. It features exactly the same 8Mpix F2.2/28mm camera on the back with Carl Zeiss optics but also has a 1.3Mpix F2.4 (!!) front facing camera.The Lumia 900 will also have the WiFi Host-spot internt sharing feature enabled out of the bow.

No word yet on if it will ever be available outside of the US or the presence of a Gyroscope unlike the Lumia 800 and 710. Stay tuned for more..

UPDATE: The Nokia Lumia 900 does feature a Gyroscope.

UPDATE: It apparently doesn’t have a PenTile Martix panel!
