Summary:

Nokia’s Lumia Icon for Verizon keeps playing hide and seek: Earlier this month it appeared on a Verizon test site and now the phone’s product page with specs is live on Verizon’s official site, even though it hasn’t been announced.

Nokia’s Lumia 929 appeared on a Verizon test site as the Lumia Icon earlier this month. Now it’s on Verizon’s official site although the company hasn’t yet announced the handset. A tweet from Stefan Constantine on Tuesday morning highlighted the Lumia Icon webpage, which currently has a placeholder price of $777 with or without contract.

The 5-inch Windows Phone will have a 1920 x 1080 display and 20 megapixel PureView camera according to the product page. A metal chassis surrounds the handset which is also built with polycarbonate and Gorilla Glass 3. Qualcomm’s 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 chip powers the phone with 2 GB of memory and 32 GB of internal storage.

Here’s a shot of the full specs from Verizon’s site in case the product suddenly disappears.

  1. The phone looks good and the specification are great but the price is too high for a 777$ quad core chipset powered device.

    1. The price is likely just a placeholder. For example, the same price is listed both with and without subsidy. ;)

  2. This is either the cleverest market buildup, biggest consistent screwup or likely a combination of the two.
    Furthermore with Verizon having a toxic relationship with Microsoft how can any desire be generated for MicroKiaZon?
