It looks like Nokia(s nok) might be throwing a bone to Verizon(s vz)(s vod) users. While the forthcoming Lumia 1520 will be exclusive to AT&T(s t), a video has appeared showing a new Lumia device, the 929, with Verizon branding.
Posted by YouTube(s goog) user Falorin, the video has since been removed, though The Verge has linked to a mirror which you can watch below. As you can see, while it doesn’t share quite the same monster footprint as the 6-inch Lumia 1520 “phablet,” the 929 measures 5 inches, which will make it the largest Lumia to appear on Verizon yet. It’ll also be one of the first Windows Phones(s msft) to use 1080p resolution.
Also notable is the phone’s aluminum build, as well as the 20-megapixel PureView camera, which will likely be similar to the camera on the Lumia 1520. According to Falorin, the device is expected to land “around Thanksgiving time.”
While this probably won’t satisfy those interested in the hulking Lumia 1520, I actually think 5 inches is a much better size for the majority of users in general. So Verizon might not be the place to get the largest Lumia, but it might soon be home to a more sensible one.
