For a limited time, customers can get the Lumia 2520 for $399.99 with a new two-year activation.
Alongside Lumia 2520, the carrier is reportedly planning to unveil its Lumia 929 this week, which includes a 5-inch full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor running at 2.2 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 20-megapixel PureView camera, 32GB of onboard storage and wireless charging.
The previous rumors about the Lumia 929 claim the most of hardware is similar to Nokia’s Lumia 1520, and it runs Windows Phone 8 GDR3 with Lumia Black firmware. The Lumia 929 will be available in white and black colors at Verizon stores and online for $199.99 with a two year contract. Although, it’s not clear yet, but if the rumors are true, then Verizon will surely beat AT&T (releasing Lumia 1520 and 2520 on Nov. 22nd) with its Lumia devices.
