Nokia to launch a better flagship Lumia mobile phone

French newspaper Les Echos has carried a piece about the NokiaLumia 800 launching in France, where the head of Nokia in France has stated a better Lumia handset is on the way.

Les Echos has published an item from an interview with Paul Amsellem, the new head of Nokia France, who has stated: ‘[the 800 Lumia] it's the equivalent of the BMW 5 Series. We will soon have a full range with a Series 7 and Series 3’.

He went on to note – ‘And in June 2012, we will have a tablet running Windows 8".

A mobile phone rumoured to be announced at Nokia World 2011 this year was the Nokia Ace, along with the Lumia 800 and 710 devices, but it did not make an appearance – where the other two were actually launched.

Nokia’s Ace is reportedly a 4.3-inch AMOLED screen based device, with a 1.4GHz processor, with 16GB of internal storage and an 8 megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens.

This could very well be the Series 7 equivalent BMW mobile phone, which One Mobile Ring expects will be launched at Mobile World Congress in March.
