With the release of the Nokia Lumia 900, there is no doubt that Finnish smartphone manufacturer Nokia is once again back in contention in the smartphone competition but despite being the current flagship device of the company for its lineup of Windows Phone devices, the handset still is not immune to issues that bring annoyance to its throng of users. First, it was reported that the Nokia Lumia 900 is plagued by connectivity issues wherein users of the handset are unable to connect to a data network, whether it is 2G, 3G or 4G LTE.

This time around, another flaw of the Nokia Lumia 900 has become apparent and the issue is said to be affecting the display of the smartphone. In particular, when the display of the Nokia Lumia 900 is set to its minimum level with the automatic brightness feature of the handset disabled, graphics that are supposed to appear gray appear with a purple tint instead.
A survey was actually done to identify how many of the users of the handset are affected with this glitch behavior and returns indicate that at least 10% of all the respondents have Nokia Lumia 900 handsets that display this behavior. However, there is the possibility that the actual number of affected users is even higher because a user may not be aware that his or her Nokia Lumia 900 is affected with this issue since it is only triggered with the abovementioned conditions.
It is a good thing though that Nokia has already come out and acknowledge the issue and the company further confirmed that it is already aware of what is causing the problem for that matter. In addition to that, Nokia also announced that a software update is already in the works to get this particular issue taken care of. Though there is no exact time frame announced by the manufacturer as to when we can expect this software update to be rolled out, Nokia has also announced that it will make the announcement as soon as the update is ready to hit the airwaves. In the meantime, let us take a look at the specs sheet of the Nokia Lumia 900 while waiting for the software update that will take care of the purple tint of the handset to land.
The Nokia Lumia 900 has Windows Phone 7.5 Mango for its operating system and this is powered by the handset’s QualComm APQ8055 SnapDragon chipset.
