The Lumia Icon – formally known as “Lumia 929” is the next-flagship Windows Phone 8 devices come to Verizon, which will be popping up this month, and today’s information leads us to confirm that it will be sooner than later.
Verizon seems to have accidently published the product page on its website with a placeholder price of $777, and we suspect that the cellular is likely to make the smartphone official soon.
For those who didn’t hear about the Lumia Icon, this’s the successor of Lumia 928 and has been rumored as Lumia 929, exclusive to Verizon customers.
Hardware-wise, the Lumia Icon comes with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.2GHz, which is complemented by Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It’s confirmed to ship with Windows Phone 8 Update 3 along with Lumia Black out of the box.
Thanks to the included 20-megapixel camera with Zeiss Optics and a dual-LED flash, users will be able to record full HD (1080p) video and capture amazing blur-free pictures with optical image stabilization. While in the front, there’s a 1.2MP front-facing camera for video calls.
It’s also worth mentioning that the phone sports a 5-inch full HD screen with viewing angle of almost 180 degrees, and that makes it “one-hand” operable unlike Lumia 1520.
Among other features, the smartphone features a compact metal body and includes 2420 mAh Li-Ion battery that support wireless charging. Naturally, the smartphone is made to run Verizon’s network, and comes with support for 4G LTE and also packs Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
Verizon hasn’t made any official comment on the release date and pricing plans yet.
