More pictures of the Nokia Lumia 929 leak from Mexico

More pictures of the Nokia Lumia 929 leak from Mexico
On Tuesday, we were happy to obtain exclusive pictures of the Nokia Lumia 929 from a source in Mexico who was able to purchase what he called a prototype of the phone. Keep in mind that Nokia has yet to make this model official, although it is expected to be an exclusive for Verizon when launched in the U.S. And as we've pointed out, while the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet is the first Windows Phone model to come to market with the GDR3 update, the 6 inch screen could limit the popularity of the device.

Since the Nokia Lumia 929 will also have the GDR3 update, which will allow it to offer the same top-shelf specs seen on high-end Android phones, and carry a more desirable 5 inch display, this model will provide us with a quick reading on how much progress the platform is making against the iOS/Android duopoly. And being offered on Verizon, a carrier known for its Android line-up, it will be very interesting to see how the Nokia Lumia 929 fares. First though, it needs to be unveiled.

The latest information we have on a possible launch date is mid to late December, so just a little more patience is required.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

PA's reduce the size and/or opacity. This watermark stands out much more than the intended image.

Still do not understand why the more pocketable 929 was not the flagship release as opposed to the mammoth 1520. 5" screens are way more popular and desirable then the 6" screens. Just a strange decision.

That is Elop's way of flopping the company further..

I think that AT&T didn't want to cannibalize the 920/1020 sales. They'll probably get the next flagship at CES.

Nokia should sell this globally, a 5 inch screen phone is the right size, 6 inch is just too big. Btw, that's a huge PhoneArena watermark.

+925. They should release a metal version (Similar to 925) of this phone globally. 5 incher is what most people want.

I am quite interested in the 929, I need a new work phone and the 1520 is just to big to carry around along with my Note 3.

Solid device, nothing groundbraking, but that's ok. I somehow prefer 1020, though.

Pictures leak, and show that the 929 looks like the 920, which looks like the 900, which looks like the 820, which looks like the 800… ;) What's more, WP has the same old interface from the beginning (except for resizable tiles and an additional row).

Grow up kid ;) 820 is quite different from other Lumia models. moreover 929 is rumoured to be metal chasing rather than polycorbonate. Oh wait !! what about iCrap and Samdungs Galaxieeeeeeees ?

I'm not one to complain much about Verizon's logo branding on phones. Usually it's not a big deal but this... on this phone, looks pretty bad. It's bunched in the corner without proper spacing to balance the look, like NOKIA logo and it looks really hodgepodge. You can clearly tell that the designers of the phone had no intention to have that space filled with text. Hopefully you can scrape it off somehow.
