Nokia Lumia 929 for Verizon tipped as 5-inch 1520 with Full HD, 20 MP cam and S800
It’s no big secret Nokia messed up the timing of its glitzy Abu Dhabi “World” event, what with Apple looking to intro two new iPads pretty much simultaneously. But what if we’re in for some whopping surprises from the Finns and Cupertino will end up overshadowed after all?
Granted, it’s a long shot, more so as the entire line-up of new Nokia products seems to have been revealed already. Only we might not know the full story just yet.
For instance, do you remember the Verizon-bound Lumia 929? As it happens, we now have a purported full spec sheet for the fellow which sounds pretty solid. Not exactly spectacular, but solid.
In a nutshell, if the folks over at Nokia Power User are to be trusted (and they usually are), the 929 will be a 5-inch flavor of the Lumia 1520. In other words, it will be a variation of Nokia’s next-gen flagship that could start the competition against such Android mainstream top dogs as Samsung’s Galaxy S4, LG’s G2 or Sony’s Xperia Z1 on a good footing.
Don’t get me wrong, the 1520 should itself turn a few heads, but larger than 5-inch phablets remain a fairly tough sell. Besides, what’s there not to like about the 929?
Tipped to weigh in at 166 grams and measure 9.5 mm in thickness, the bad boy will be quite the looker, but it will pack some significant heat too, courtesy of a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU and 2 GB RAM. Plus, the Full HD 5-inch screen will clock in at a breathtaking 441 ppi pixel density.
On top of it all, you’ll be getting a 20.7 MP primary camera with Carl Zeiss optics, dual LED and dual capture mode, as well as 4G LTE speeds and built-in wireless charging.
But here’s the absolute kicker. In spite of earlier reports, the Lumia 1320 “Batman” could end up not as a low-end, large screen phone, but an “international” flavor of this 929. So it’s not just Big Red that will be spoiled with 5 inches of Full HD splendor, Windows Phone 8 smoothness and Snapdragon 800 heat. How do you like them apples, Apple?
