Nokia World has come and gone but that doesn’t mean the Finnish company doesn’t have more devices up their sleeves. One of those is the Lumia 929, a custom phone for Verizon that is due to land any time between now and Q1. Not much is known about the Lumia 929 except that it is probably a 5-inch 1080P device running a Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and a 20 MP rear PureView camera.
Now, a leaker in the Windows Phone Central forums who goes by the name of ‘Falorin’ has posted a new photo and even a hands on vide with the mystery device.
The posted video is just 45 seconds in length, though we do get to see the About screen and get a brief look at the device. From the appearance alone, it looks very similar to the Lumia 928, also found on Verizon. The device can best be described as square in the front with a rounded back. The device in the video is all matte black and there is nothing particularly stunning about the device, though we bet the hardware is drool worthy.
No word on an exact date for release though Falorin says that it should be out “around Thanksgiving time”.
The device obviously sports Verizon’s 4G LTE, meaning it has a micro SIM card for GSM. The leaker has also noted that the device is unlocked, like most of Verizon’s devices, and that putting an AT&T or T-Mobile SIM into the device allowed it to work on those networks.
What does everyone think of the Lumia 929? Hit or miss?
