The Windows Phone ecosystem has been getting bigger and better every day with new hardware releases from time to time. Rarely do we see Windows Phone without Nokia branding up on top, and this time is no different. Rumors of a Lumia 929 have been circulating for a while as a Windows Phone by Nokia destined for Verizon’s network. Now Verizon’s website has a listing for the Lumia Icon, which is the rumored Lumia 929 (confirmed by URL).
This new device appears to be a more compact version of the popular Lumia 1520 smartphone. This phone is metal on the inside with a polycarbonate shell, similar to the iPhone 5C. The Icon will also have a 5-inch, 1080p OLED display. Under the hood the device will pack a Snapdragon 800 with 2GB of RAM. The device also has a 20MP PureView camera with dual-LED flash and a 1.2MP camera on the front. The phone also has NFC, 4G LTE, wireless charging, and a 2,420 mAh non-removable battery. Currently the price is unknown as the listed $777 is most like simply a placeholder. This phone will probably sell for $200 with a contract when it officially releases.
The page for the Icon disappeared minutes after going up but the device still appears in search results.
