Nokia Lumia Icon (929) briefly listed at Verizon's website with a hefty price attached
Nokia’s presence at CES 2014 isn’t impressive by any means, but that can’t stop the company from announcing something new for the US really soon, right? Right. The announcement we’re talking about could finally make Verizon’s Nokia Lumia Icon official. The new smartphone (also known as Lumia 929) was briefly listed by Verizon over at its test manager website earlier today, so its rumored January 16 launch date might be accurate after all. The URL for the Icon’s page seems to be functional as we type this, although it leads to a generic page showing already-available products.

Luckily, Engadget snapped a screenshot of the website, revealing that Verizon is planning to sell the Lumia Icon for $777 off-contract. That’s a pretty weird price if you ask us, so it may be just a mistake (especially since the same price appears as available with a new 2-year contract agreement).

Running Windows Phone 8, the Nokia Lumia Icon should feature a 5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, LTE, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 20.7MP rear camera with PureView technology, and a 2,420 mAh battery. We’re glad that Verizon and Nokia didn’t stick with the Lumia 929 moniker - that one lacked personality. We’ll bring more details on this as soon as they’re unveiled.
