High quality Verizon Nokia Lumia 929 images leak along with specs
Nokia isn't showing any sides of slowing down with the prospect of being acquired by Microsoft on the horizon. The Finnish company is between the announcement and release of its new Lumia 1520 phablet and Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet, but it is also know that the company is working on a refresh of the Lumia 928 for Verizon; and, we're getting new high-quality pics of the Lumia 929.
The device certainly looks quite nice, but the real story is that the Lumia 929 will be taking full advantage of the new hardware support afforded by Windows Phone 8 GDR3. This means that the smartphone is expected to make full use of a Snapdragon 800 processor running at 2.2 GHz, 2GB of RAM, and a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display. Of course it still has the features that you would expect like a 20 MP PureView rear camera, dual-LED flash, Qi wireless charging, and the variety of Verizon bloatware apps like Verizon Tones, VZ Navigator, My Verizon Mobile.
Windows Phone Central apparently also got some unofficial measurements of the device along with the leaked images. If the measurements are correct, the Lumia 929 will clock in slightly larger than the Lumia 928 at 136.5 x 71.4 x 10.5mm (5.37 x 2.8 x .41 inches) and 166 g (.366 lbs). It also looks quite a bit like the 928 as well, although the USB charging port has been moved to the bottom and the headphone jack has been moved to the center of the top edge.
