Verizon's Nokia Lumia Icon (929) seems to be on sale in China, no announcement in sight
Although it briefly appeared at Verizon’s website earlier this month, the Nokia Lumia Icon 929 is still an unannounced smartphone. Surprisingly, it looks like it’s already being sold in China via the country’s largest online retailer, Taobao.

The seller seemingly has several Lumia Icon units, all “imported”, and asks $628 (3,800 CNY) for each. Around $600 is probably close to what Verizon will ask for the new handset sans contract.

The Lumia 929 Icon is the successor to Verizon’s Nokia Lumia 928. It’s Nokia’s second Windows Phone 8 device to come with a 1080p display, after the larger Lumia 1520 (released at the end of last year). As we told you before, the Icon’s 1080p screen is a 5-inch one. Other features include LTE connectivity, a 20MP PureView rear camera, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board memory, and a 2,420 mAh battery.

Until we hear something official about the Lumia Icon 929 - from either Nokia, or Verizon - the photos included below offer a good glimpse on what to expect from the handset (there’s a protective foil on the back of it, in case you’re wondering why it looks like that).
