Lumia-Icin

Washington: We have just enter the New Year, Nokia is now eyeing to introduce its Lumia device with a name instead of a number through Verizon report claims.

Nokia Lumia 929 is in line for the launch but now new report claims that the device will be called Nokia Lumia Icon instead of Lumia 929.

It seems that 2014 is going to be one of Nokia’s most interesting years in a very long time. The company’s device division will become part of Microsoft, which should provide Nokia with notable financial and technological advancements.

Microsoft plans on using the mobile company’s expertise in hardware and its very important carrier relationships it has formed throughout the years in the cell phone industry. The acquisition will help Microsoft better compete with rivals such as Apple and Google by releasing hardware running its Windows Phone mobile operating system, giving the company greater control on the smartphones it releases as it tries to improve its current third place smartphone market share.

According to a new report, we are already seeing a major change coming to an important smartphone Nokia has been developing for Verizon Wireless. Evleaks is at it again and spilling the beans on an unannounced Verizon Nokia Lumia smartphone.

The tipster claims that the upcoming Verizon Nokia Lumia 929 will be the first Lumia to ship with new branding. It won’t lose the popular ‘Lumia’ name, but numbers may be a thing of the past for future Lumia handsets. The smartphone will reportedly officially be called the Lumia Icon when it’s released.

Windows Phone Central is also providing some new information on the upcoming Verizon Nokia Lumia 929 / Icon. The site claims that it has heard that the smartphone will be released on Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014 and the Microsoft Store will likely begin stocking of the handset earlier (likely for pre-ordered), although it notes the date could change.

The site also suggests that the date happens to fall a few days after CES 2014 and that is where Verizon and Nokia are likely to officially announce the Lumia Icon.

The Verizon Nokia Lumia Icon is expected to feature a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 Full HD AMOLED display and run the latest version of Windows Phone 8 Update 3 and Nokia’s Lumia Black Update. It will be powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and include 32GB of internal storage (no microSD expansion).

The device will reportedly include a high-end 20-megapixel PureView camera with oversamspling and a front-facing camera for video chat. Its wireless connectivity options will consist of a 4G LTE radio, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, GPS, and NFC. The smartphone will include wireless charging out of the box and will be offered in choice of matte white or matte black. There was no mention of battery size or pricing.

    Given up waiting. Going for the Blackberry Z30. Appears to be a great phone and has gotten some very good “user” reviews. I have an iPhone for fun, and the Z30 will more than meet my needs for business use.

    Arrrrgh, just sell me the phone already.

    The rumor mill on this thing is killing me. I’ve been waiting so patiently since my current droid contract ended in Nov. for this thing to be released. This is too long of a wait. To not clarify an official release date this far in to 2014 after the rumor mill has been pounding out release dates is a big misstep from nokia or vzw.

    I am hoping that it launches in two days, my contract with Verizon is up on the 11th and my HTC Rezound can barely even text anymore (I honestly think one of the cores is busted). It will be nice to get away from Android and onto Windows Phone. I have been doing research on the OS for a year now and I really think it is the one for me.

      just go with it… it took them 3 months to correct the matching front to the back of this phone. the people who leak these images have no clue what the companies plans are and only get specs if they find them listed somewhere… they then combine these things randomly until they find something that looks like it matches the image. this one has been through the process enough and has been leaked to a consumer so it is deemed a real product. Verizon leaks also confirmed this one after it was already seen and tested in videos. .

    How lame is this article? Do they ever look at the calendar?

      you are reading articles every day written entirely by software that is programmed to look at existing story’s and compile information in a form that looks like a human wrote it if every article was checked and written by humans you would need up to a few hundred per website to post information off of a salary of a few cents per thousand visitors . …. this one has a name so be nice to it ;)

    I’m hoping it gets released on the 5th. My 822 is on it’s last legs.

  8. Toby says:

    Add micro SD expansion and I’ll jump to buy it… Some other creative colors too please! THANK YOU. for doing so before this thing is released!!!
