The smartphone might hit shelves at 3,650 Yuan ($599 / €443)
Nokia has been long rumored to plan the launch of a Nokia Lumia 929 smartphone on the network of Verizon Wireless in the United States, and is now expected to make the move on December 6.The handset was previously expected to become official on November 21, but that day came and went, and the Finnish handset vendor hasn’t announced the new smartphone.
New reports on the matter, however, suggest that the phone was actually pushed back a bit, and that it will go official on December 6.
In fact, the device is expected to become available for pre-order starting with that day, alongside various accessories specifically destined for it.
On top of that, info that emerged over at IT Home suggests that the mobile phone will feature a price tag of 3,650 Yuan when made official, which translates into around $599 / €443.
Skinomi, a company that builds accessories for smartphones out there, has already come up with screen protectors for the Lumia 929, and will make them available for purchase starting with December 6 as well.
For those out of the loop, we should note that Nokia Lumia 929 is expected to land on shelves at Verizon Wireless with a 5-inch full HD AMOLED screen, as well as with a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor packed inside.
Furthermore, the phone is said to sport 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, a 20-megapixel camera on the back, and 1.6MP front camera. It will also include wireless charging capabilities.
The handset will arrive on the market with the Windows Phone 8 General Distribution Release 3 loaded on top, as well as with support for 4G LTE networks.
All in all, Lumia 929 looks like a great smartphone, capable of easily taking on Android flagship devices such as Galaxy S4, Xperia Z1 and LG G2. The only downside of this Nokia smartphone is the fact that it will not feature a microSD memory card slot.
