Nokia Lumia 929 for Verizon has fully detailed specs leaked alongside live images
On October 22, Nokia announced a few new devices, but notably absent was the sometimes leaked Lumia 929. This, we’ve been lead to believe, would be more or less Verizon’s very own version of Nokia’s first phablet, but with a more manageable screen size.
While the Lumia 929 still isn’t official, today all its specs got leaked alongside most of the important details, and, yes, some live images. These come to nicely complement the leaked renders we’ve already seen not once, but twice in the past.
The Nokia Lumia 929 will be exclusive to Verizon, as expected, and it’s basically a high-end Windows Phone tailor made after the carrier’s wishes. The handset will sport a 5-inch 1080p Full HD AMOLED touchscreen, a 20 MP PureView rear camera with oversampling (16 MP + 5 MP photos taken at the same time) and dual-LED flash, a front facing camera too, a 2.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, no microSD card slot, NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, wireless charging, FM radio, and at least three microphones. It will naturally run Windows Phone 8 GDR 3, the version which enables support for such high-resolution screens and quad-core processors. The Lumia 929’s dimensions are 136.5×71.4×10.5 mm, and it weighs 166 grams. It will be offered in white and black.
Its release date is still up in the air, though. Apparently the device is still in testing over at Verizon, and the launch will happen sometime between Thanksgiving and the beginning of next year. That’s a pretty large window.
With this phone, Nokia will finally have something on the US market that is on par in terms of specs with the Android flagships. Which might mean that the Lumia 929 will sell very well – that is, unless Verizon decides to overprice it. We’ll see what happens.
