Earlier this month, Nokia officially unveiled the Lumia 920 Windows Phone. During the event, while the company was busy showing off the multitude of colors that the handset will release in, it didn’t take long for folks to notice that one particular color was missing: cyan. This shade of blue has become quite popular with Nokia over the years, as it was released with the N9, as well as the Lumia 900 and 800.
With the color missing from Nokia’s official announcement, rumors began to spread that the Finnish-based company had decided to drop it from the Lumia roster. Indeed, there are plenty of other colors to choose from, including red, yellow, grey and black.
Not too long after the announcement, a Windows Phone-related video was released showing a cyan Nokia Lumia sitting on a desk next to a Nokia employee. People began to talk about whether or not Nokia really did have a cyan-tinted Lumia sitting on the shelf, waiting to be unveiled, based on this specific video. The chances of it being a Lumia 900 were too hard to ignore, though.
Now believers are pointing to this new video. It’s meant to showcase the Red Bull application which will be an exclusive app for the Lumia series. It’s 38 seconds into the video, and it’s only apparent for less than a second, but if you’re sharp-eyed you can see the cyan-colored Lumia 920 presented for viewers clear as day. It’s a subliminal message if we’ve ever seen one, as the device flashes from yellow to cyan back to yellow, all in a split-second.
Does it mean that Nokia has a cyan Lumia 920 ready to show off to the world at some point in the future? It could. If anything, it could mean that Nokia is gearing up to announce an exclusive deal with some carrier somewhere to launch the device. While it’s obvious the cyan Lumia 920 is a sought-after device, it would be interesting to see if people would change carriers to get their hands on it.
If it’s real, that is. You can check out the Red Bull promotional video below, and keep your eyes tuned for that 38-second mark.
