The Nokia family has a new member, Nokia Lumia 929, which very surprisingly had been kept under wraps until now. The product, destined for Verizon, is said to be going through carrier testing mode currently.
We hear the new device will be released anytime between Thanksgiving and New Year.
Lumia 929 features a 5-inch 1080P AMOLED display along with a quadcore Snapdragon 800 CPU and advanced internals, which make it a much more bigger and powerful version of Lumia 928.
The device comes with internal storage of 32 GB and 2 GB RAM. However, there is no slot for a micro SD card. It also sports a 20 MP Pure View rear camera with LED flash, and a front cam.
Also equipped with various other basic smartphone features like NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi capabilities, it also has Qi wireless charging and at least three wireless HAAC microphones thrown in.
Some other features worth mentioning are NFL Mobile, Verizon Tones, VZ Navigator, My Verizon Mobile, Nokia Story Teller and Screen Beamer. The handset will be available in two colors, glossy white and matte black.
The body of the image is similar to Lumia 928, except for the metal wrapping around the edge of the phone, which gives it a sturdier look.
In addition, the headphone jack is on the center-top and the micro USB charger is at the bottom of the phone. The buttons are supposedly ceramic.
The LTE radio takes up the micro SIM card, which is situated near to the top. Lumia 929 will be very quick, sources say, thanks to the Qualcomm processor. It will be shipped with Windows Phone Update 3 and the Lumia Black firmware.
Nokia certainly seems to have a winner on its hands. With the 1080 P, the display makes the phone look fantastic and much more compatible in size especially when one compares it to Lumia 1520. Nokia is certainly looking ahead for a best seller with this one.
