Rumors of the Nokia Lumia 929 have been kicking around for quite a while, but just like that, the phone has suddenly appeared on Verizon’s(s vzw) test site as the Nokia Lumia Icon. There are still some details that need to be fleshed out, but this gives us a good idea of what to expect when the phone becomes official.

Nokia Lumia Icon

The Lumia Icon is a 5-inch device that looks like a smaller take on AT&T’s(s t) 6-inch Lumia 1520. Like the 1520, Verizon’s site say the Icon features a 20-megapixel camera. It also features the ability to zoom with just one finger. This is likely to be Verizon’s first Windows Phone(s msft) with a quad-core processor. Verizon says 2.2GHz, so I’m thinking it’s the same Qualcomm(s qcom) Snapdragon 800 as in the Lumia 1520. The rest of the specs are still missing, except for a 2420mAh battery, which should provide plenty of power, as well as wireless charging capabilities. Rumors have pegged this phone to feature an aluminum frame. That isn’t clear from the shots here, but it looks possible.

Verizon’s test site lists the phone as $777 for both on-contract and contract-free plans, which clearly isn’t right. I’ve contacted Verizon for further information and will update this post when I hear back. But I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Lumia Icon appear officially any day now.

On Verizon, the HTC One is $499, the Galaxy S 4 is $599 and the 32GB iPhone 5S is $749 of contract.

It would be a little surprising to me if Nokia expects to sell these phones at a premium above the latest iPhone, even if it is a few months old. Anything more than $600 is really going to hurt sales, especially given that Verizon is also one of the most expensive carriers month-to-month as well…..
