The last phone made by Nokia is making a comeback with slight changes on board.

It seems that Verizon is eager to get back into the Windows Phone game. Yesterday we reported that LG has their mid-range Lancet device heading to the carrier, and now we’ve caught wind of the Lumia 735 getting some love from Big Red.
Spotted over on the FCC website, we’re getting the first images of a matte black Lumia 735 that is apparently headed to Verizon. We’re heard before that we’d see this device coming to the carrier, but it seemed to have fallen off the radar for a while, at least until now, and I guess we may have an idea why. Besides the obvious reworking of frequency bands for Verizon’s CDMA network, there’s a another small change that should be easy to spot.


The Lumia 735 pictured above can be seen with not only Verizon branding, but with Microsoft splashed across the back and front-top bezel. It seems Microsoft wanted to ensure that it’s newest device on the US’ largest mobile operator had its name so that no one would get confused with its previous Nokia branding, which makes sense.
Beyond that we can expect the same features as the international version of the device:
  • Windows Phone 8.1 (Likely Update 2)
  • 4.7-inch 720p OLED display (1280 x 720)
  • 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 8 GB of internal storage, expandable
  • 6.7 MP main camera with ZEISS optics (f/1.9 aperture), LED flash
  • Full HD 5 MP wide angle front-facing camera (f/2.4 aperture)
All of this on Verizon’s nationwide 4G LTE network. We should expect to see this device, along with the LG Lancet, released fairly soon. Hopefully we’ll get some flagship devices along the way.
