For the most part, AT&T and T-Mobile have been the U.S. carriers of choice for Nokia Lumia series phones featuring Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system. But Verizon is trying to get more of a foothold on the devices.
Big Red got its first Lumia flagship smartphone the 928 earlier this year, and soon it could get, what else?: the 929. A new image online via @evleaks shows what’s purported to be the 929 with Verizon branding on it. The device, which the tweet says will come in black and white later this year, will reportedly continue the tradition of powerful Lumia cameras. This WPCentral report suggests it will sport a 20MP rear-facing camera and a 1080p display. The Lumia 1020 is getting a lot of hype for its 41MP camera.
The 929 might just be one of a handful of devices that Nokia unveils at an event on Oct. 22. The Lumia 1520 smartphone and 2520 tablet PC are widely expected to make their first official appearances then, with launch dates announced in time for the holiday season.
