Glossy White Nokia Lumia 800 Coming This Month

It seems the snow which feel in the UK over the weekend is in keeping with the flurry of new versions of premium handsets featuring the new white paint job.

First up was the Ice White HTC Sensation announced last week, before Samsung took the covers off the white version of the Galaxy Nexus which will arrive next week. Now Nokia has announced that it will be launching a white version of the Lumia 800 later this month.

However, unlike the cyan, magenta and black colours already available for the Lumia 800, the white casing will be of the glossy variety rather than a matt finish. We’re not sure this is an altogether welcome move as the matt finish was one of our favourite aspects of the original.

Like the Sensation and Galaxy Nexus, the white version of the Lumia 800 will be, in every other way, identical to the original, featuring a 3.7in AMOLED screen, 1.4GHz processor and running Windows Phone 7.5.
