AT&T has already confirmed it will exclusively sell the Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone in the United States beginning November 4.However, other US-based operators will offer Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 devices as the Finnish company decided to launch various carrier-bounded models.
Rumors on a mysterious Lumia 9xx surfaced for the first time last week, along with a very blurry picture of the phone’s camera.
According to these rumors, Nokia Lumia 9xx is a Verizon-bounded device, which will probably be available for purchase starting next month.
The folks over at MyNokiaBlog have been recently tipped on some the smartphone’s features, though this info has to be taken with a grain of salt until Verizon comes forward with an official announcement.
Well, it looks like the Nokia Lumia 9xx will arrive at Verizon Wireless with a slightly better camera than AT&T’s Lumia 920.
Although both phones will have the same module camera, Verizon’s device will have a higher amount of megapixels. Previous rumors point to a possible 12-megapixel rear camera for Lumia 9xx, whereas AT&T Lumia 920 will boast an 8-megapixel photo snapper.
Moreover, Nokia Lumia 9xx will feature an improved 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls, while AT&T’s version comes with a slightly lower 1.3-megapixel secondary camera.
Even though there are no details on the Lumia 9xx’s possible release date, MyNokiaBlog’s tipster mentioned that the smartphone will go on sale for as low as $149.99 USD with a new two-year agreement. There’s still no word on the no-term price.
Keep in mind that Nokia Lumia 9xx is not intended to be superior to Lumia 920 in all aspects, as AT&T’s model would have a hard time selling. We expect more details on Verizon’s Windows Phone 8 devices to emerge in the following days so stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
