Verizon’s Lumia 929 could be called Lumia Icon
Multiple sources claim that the future high-end smartphone for Verizon, Nokia Lumia 929, will be launched in Q1 2014, after the Nokia-Microsoft deal is completed. The new Windows Phone is likely to be the first handset offered by Microsoft without the Nokia branding. Microsoft is reportedly considering ditching the number designation for the new models and the Lumia 929 could be released as ‘Lumia Icon’.
NPU explains the delay with Verizon’s decision to sign a marketing / promotional deal with Microsoft rather than Nokia, so the US wireless provider needs to wait until Nokia-Microsoft deal is finalized in early 2014.
The 5-inch, quad-core smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor at 2.2 GHz with 2 GB of RAM. Lumia 929 or Lumia Icon for Verizon will have a 20 MP PureView camera with dual LED flash. The follow up to the Lumia 928 will be offered in matte black or matte white. Sources close to the matter have revealed that the Lumia Icon is likely to be launched in late January /early February 2014, before the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
