What we’re looking at is apparently a leaked variant of the Lumia 920 destined for the oriental land of China. In the past we’ve seen Chinese variants of the Lumia 800 (the 800C) which has apparently been a huge success (some reports claim that it was outselling the iPhone). Failing to capitalize on the Chinese market would be a huge mistake, which hopefully Nokia are avoiding; especially since the iPhone 5 has yet to be released in China (in fact it might not be released at all due to some legal issues). Personally I think that no matter how big of a fuss Nokia make in the US, teaming up with all the carriers and giving out exclusivity deals that would still only come out to a fraction of the sales they could make in China if they doubled down their efforts there; but then again the US is the trendsetter at the moment influencing most of Europe and the rest of the world, hopefully we’ll see some ripple effects in the near future.
Note: It was in fact Someone in China who leaked the first ever images of the Lumia 920, which we all carefully dissected and prodded for clues: http://mynokiablog.com/2012/08/07/leaked-yellow-nokia-lumia-w-wp8-think-lumia-900-with-curved-screen/
