Leaked Pictures of Lumia 929, Verizon Exclusive with 5″ 1080p Display
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).
