Nokia Lumia 929, a 1080p 5-inch Windows Phone, reportedly coming to Verizon

The 6-inch Lumia 1520 announced last month for AT&T(s t) isn’t the only large Windows Phone(s msft) coming from Nokia(s nok): A 5-inch model with similar features may land on Verizon’s(s vz)(s vod) network. Dubbed the Lumia 929, the handset will keep the same screen resolution and processor as the 1520, according to Windows Phone Central, which posted images of the alleged phone on Monday.

The Lumia 929 is expected to run Windows Phone on Qualcomm’s(s qcom) 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800, a chip that’s finding its way into many high-powered flagship devices, including Google’s(s goog) Nexus 5.

The 5-inch display will use AMOLED technology with full HD resolution. Windows Phone Central said 2 GB of memory and 32 GB of fixed internal storage are likely as is support for NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, and Qi wireless charging. Nokia’s PureView camera technology is also anticipated, capturing both a 16-megapixel and a 5-megapixel image simultaneously.

Lumia 929

Nokia got off to a slow start with Windows Phone but is quickly expanding the range of devices with Windows Phone handsets aimed at nearly every size and price-point. The Lumia 929 and Lumia 1520 are prime examples of this. And it appears to be helping: On Friday, Counterpoint Research said Nokia moved past Motorola to take the fourth spot for handset sales in the U.S. last quarter.

    steve the e-mail system doesn’t use push but e-mails arrive as soon as they are in your inbox… it has a setting to how often you want it to check including a (as soon as it arrives) setting.. I have tested it and they literally show up at the same time as the web browser.

  2. Was looking forward to the 929 however it appears wp8 GRD 2&3 do NOT support PUSH email thus having a 15 minute minimum delay before phone checks inbox. Looks like swapping Note 2 for blackberry z30 if thats the case.
