Lumia "selfie" model codenamed Superman, said to be on the way to Verizon and AT&T

Lumia
Back in April, we told you about a Nokia Lumia model codenamed Superman. The phone was rumored to feature a 4.7 inch screen, with a 5MP front-facing snapper designed for better quality "selfies". Today, some new information about the phone has surfaced. Expected to be a sequel to the Nokia Lumia 720, there are three product codes believed to be associated with the new device, RM-983, RM-984 and RM-985.

The Lumia "selfie" phone is expected to be released in the third or fourth week of August, and is scheduled to be available from Verizon and AT&T, with Windows Phone 8.1, and the GDR1 update pre-installed.

Other rumored specs include a 5 inch display with 720 x 1280 resolution, and a quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU under the hood. That means that the Adreno 305 will be inside, crunching the graphics. On back, we should find an 8MP Carl Zeiss camera, with the ability to take great pictures in low-light conditions. The phone's design is expected to be slightly different than the look of the Nokia Lumia 720.

Sony has just unveiled the Android powered Sony Xperia C3, a self-proclaimed selfie model, with a 5MP front-facing camera. There is no reason why the Windows Phone platform can't also take advantage of the "selfie" craze.

First off, It's gonna be very, very difficult for someone on to put me off, or "strike a nerve". Secondly, I was tired of your trolling and uninformed BS, so I decided to dish out some words to your tiny brain. Fair enough right?

metimes, people are too lazy or angry or lacking in the ability or will to construct a counter-argument to engage in the substance of the dispute, in which case they often try to shut up an opponent by deploying mechanisms to discredit their opponent instead of trying to discredit the opponent’s arguments. Grow up kid No need to ad hominem him Your usual pathetic childish behaviour What would we expect from a kid like you? "attack"

Two different display size rumors...? Anyway, the 720 (along with the 1520) is the best looking Lumia to date, so by all means stick with the design! Better camera, though...

Your the one who goes off topic when you lose an discussion and then attack users, when I own you, but you don't admit, so you go delusional and in denial. You are not matured like Liveitup and Elitewolverine. They don't attack users like you little kid. They attack the and dispute the subject. Which is never in you kid.
