Verizon Lumia 735 spotted at the FCC with Microsoft branding

Verizon Lumia 735 spotted at the FCC with Microsoft branding
Microsoft unveiled the Lumia 735 back in September 2014, but so far, the handset has yet to be launched in the United States despite numerous rumors that pointed towards an US launch. A recent discovery made in the FCC database reveals that Verizon might soon launch the Windows Phone handset on its network, with Microsoft's branding replacing the Nokia logo that is present on the international version of the Lumia 735.

At the moment, it's unknown if the Verizon version of the handset will launch with any significant hardware differences compared to the international version. In other countries, the Microsoft Lumia 735 comes with hardware specifications such as a 4.7inch OLED display running a resolution of 720 by 1280 (HD) pixels, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage space, a microSD card slot, a 6.7MP primary shooter with ZEISS lens and an aperture of f/1.9, and a 5MP front-facing shooter with an aperture of f/2.4. In other words, the Lumia 735 is a mid-range handset that might appeal to selfie smartphone fans on a tight budget.

Back in April, Microsoft announced that the Lumia 735 will get Windows 8.1 Update 2, but it's unclear if the Verizon version of the handset will come with the latest WP update out of the box.

Here are a few pics of the Microsoft Lumia 735 that we spotted today in the FCC database:

Is it "Verizon Lumia 735 spotted at the FCC with Microsoft branding" or "MICROSOFT Lumia 735 spotted at the FCC with VERIZON branding"??

So it could mean? lucky or auspicious object. Cool story. Oh you are thinking of the Nazi usage, figures your one track simple mind would take one use of a symbol and try to destroy its original intent. Its all good. #yolohatemsnoiq

I don't see the point of it, if the 640 just launched, or simply launch the 740, that would be even better.

hmm the Verizon Nokia Lumia 822 which this smart phone probably will replace would be a better buy because it came with 16 gigs of main memory. 8 meg rear camera, ect. the price had better be real cheap or this smart phones wont sell well at Verizon. Verizon also needs the Microsoft lumia 940 to replace the Nokia Lumia 928. both the Nokia Lumia 822 and 928 are listed as out of stock with no indications of being re stocked. this could mean microsoft no longer makes them for Verizon but instead will offer alternative Microsoft brand smart phones. Microsoft has introduced no new smart phones that equal the same specs as the Nokia Lumia 928 which has 32 gigs main memory, 1 gig ram 8 plus megapixel pure view camera, 4.5 Amoled screen, it was Verizon main flag ship smart phone because Verizon would not continue to sell the Icon Windows smart phone fans on Verizon do have any Windows smart phones that have as good a camera as the Nokia lumia 928 so they cannot upgrade to a better Window smart phone what a stinking mess at verizon

correction Windows smart phone fans on Verizon net work DO NOT have any Windows smart phone good enough to beat the Nokia Lumia 928 because it has a an 8 mega pixel plus PURE View camera.so if the buy an HTC 8 or a Samsung Windows smart phone they loose out as far as smart phone camera pictures are concerned. this wont matter to some folks so an windows 8.1 HTC 8 with it's classic metal case might be OK. I have a Verizon 928 so I wont go HTC 8
