It looks like we will see two new Nokia Lumia phones before the holiday season. A lot of reports have already been circulating about the upcoming launch of Lumia 1520 in the US market through a specific mobile carrier. However, recent reports also show that the Lumia 1520 will not be launched alone this fourth quarter. According to rumors, Nokia will also announce a phone that will be dubbed as the “Lumia 929.” This report came out a month after Apple also launch two new phones, the iPhone 5S and 5C, just in time for the approaching yuletide season.
Two Different Carriers: Lumia 1520 for AT&T, Lumia 929 for Verizon
The rumored upcoming new Nokia Lumia phones will soon be distributed to the US market through two separate mobile carriers. For the high-end Lumia 1520, AT&T will be in charge. On the other hand, the upcoming Lumia 929 will be available at Verizon stores. If reports are true, the Lumia 1520 will be Nokia’s first ever phablet. It will have a wide 6-inch display and a high definition resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Meanwhile, the Lumia 929 will probably be the toned-down model of amazing Lumia 1520 according to the recent rumors. It is rumored to be released at Verizon outlets by the 6th of November this year.
Lumia 929 With Lower Price Tag Will Still Rock Other Phone Rivals
According to some reports, the Lumia 929 will be available at an off-contract price of about 500 US dollars only. This just signals that the 929 will not be as beastly as the Lumia 1520. However, the Lumia 929 will still be an amazing phone and can go neck-to-neck with its rivals at the $500 phone range. Although it will not have a 6-inch display, the Lumia 929 will still have a pretty good screen measured at five inches. Aside from that, the display resolution will still be 1920 x 1080 pixels with the same 20MP PureView shooter same with what the Lumia 1520 will have. In addition to what the rumors stated, the Lumia 929 will only be available in two colors, black and white, in contrast to previous reports that it will also have a red version. It will be a lowered version of the Lumia 1520 but will still be a pretty nice phone to have.
Phones Might Be Launched at a Nokia World Event
Both new Nokia Lumia phones are expected to be launched by the end of this month during an upcoming Nokia World event. This is in contrast with prior reports of a November launch for the Lumia 929.
