WPCentral have managed to get hold of pictures detailing the so far unannounced Lumia 929, which is set to be a Verizon exclusive, as a follow on to the Lumia 928.
The Lumia 929 is in carrier testing, and according to WPCentral’s source, comes with a 5 inch 1080p display and powered by a Snapdragon 800 Quad core Processor clocked at 2.2 Ghz. The full specs are:
•Qualcomm Quad-core Snapdragon 800 at 2.2 GHz
•5 inch AMOLED display, 1080 x 1920
•2 GB of RAM; 32 GB of internal storage (no micro SD)
•20 MP PureView rear camera with oversampling (16 MP + 5 MP photos); Front facing camera
•Dual LED flash
•NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE
•Qi wireless charging
•At least three HAAC microphones
•Data Sense, NFL Mobile, Verizon Tones, VZ Navigator, My Verizon Mobile, Nokia StoryTeller, Nokia Screen Beamer
•Available colors: glossy white or matte black
No release date is yet known.
The Lumia 929 appears like a very appealing device. It is custom made for Verizon, meaning like the 928, it will not be released globally. What appeals to me is the fact it has a lot of the same specs as the 6 inch Lumia 1520 but in a more compact design so hopefully Nokia will bring something similar to the rest of the world. By the way, 1080×1920 on a 5 inch screen makes for a pixel density of 440, very impressive from a smartphone maker who only a year ago seemed to always be slightly behind the curve when it came to specs such as Pixels per inch (PPI).
