Nokia Lumia 929 leaked in new video and photo

Nokia announced quite a few new and upcoming products at Nokia World earlier this week but there was one device that was previously rumored that was not mentioned at all. That's the 5-inch Lumia 929, which was leaked via press renders earlier this year and is rumored to be coming to Verizon Wireless sometime in November.

This weekend, a member of WPCentral's forum, "Falorin" has posted up what he claims is a photo of the Lumia 929, along with a quick 45 second video showing the phone in action. The video clip shows the settings and About screen of the device and we also get a good look at the case design, which has a rounded back but a typical Lumia square front.

The photo shows that the screen of the Lumia 929 supports a 1920x1080 resolution and that it is using the "Update 3" build of Windows Phone 8. Previous rumors about the device claim it will have a 20 megapixel rear facing camera and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor.

"Falorin" claims in his post that Verizon should start selling the Lumia 929 sometime around Thanksgiving, which would mean we are still a month away before it will be released.

Update: The video has now been removed

what is the aspect ratio of that screen? because 1080x1920 seems like an odd resolution for a screen that is on a phone... normally that res is on a 16:9 but that screen doesn't look 16:9

Actually if you throw up an image of the Nokia 928 with is 1280x768, this device has a longer display, which would be consistent with the 16:9 aspect ratio.

All 720p & 1080p windows phones have 16:9 ratio.
There are only 2 aspect ratios allowed on Win Phone. The other is for 1280*768 / 800*480

Still waiting for the Verizon version of the 1020. I WANT that camera.

Same here bro. Same here. Hopefully by the time it arrives at Verizon as the Lumia 1028 (?) it has a spec bump.

Better screen and SD card?

Not really a fan of the screen. Looks like Nokia took a big step down in quality to get the 1080 resolution.

The 1520 screen is out of this world and it's definitely not a step down. I just hope this screen technology is just as impressive.

Higher resolution doesn't always mean a better image
- Sony Xperia Z = bad LCD, low brightness and saturation, it is just a bad display
- Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro = insane high resolution, worst color reproduction on any device in the past 20 years (no color is actually the same)

Have to disagree from a technical aspect.

Nokia is using second generation 1080p displays that are closer in color coverage to their existing 720p displays.

The first generation 1080p screens like on the S4 sacrifice color coverage and fidelity for the higher resolution.

(This is based on both sub pixel layout, the distance between sub pixels, and the color levels of the sub pixels.)

Well I wasn't talking about the pixels. I'm talking about the picture up there, all those spots all over the screen.

I wonder why Verizon wants the boring looking Lumia's (or insists on Nokia making boring Lumia's for them). The design on this is as 'meh' as can be. And I'm not just talking about it being in the color 'boring black'. For example the Lumia 920 looked much better in black.

Surely Verizon has nothing to do with the design phase of the phone.

Maybe with the colors choices... but not with the design of the device itself.

I want a yellow Lumia 1028 for verizon.

The 928s are far from boring, with the full face seamless screen design.

Design is so subjective, I find it odd that someone would offer a generalization without any metrics.

That's why I said it within bracets, but it is Obvious that each Verizon Lumia looks different then the main line and similar to other Verizon Lumia's. So there is a pattern there.

I thought it would go without saying that its my opinion. I usually don't comment on each Phone saying whether I like it or not. But in this case it suprises me that Verizon Lumia's have a different design. I love the main line of Lumia's but I don't like Verizon's Lumia's at all.

SD card, 4 microphones, and the same amazing screen quality (not only resolution).

if yes, then why the hell your making it exlusive!?

Verizon and AT&T both seem to only want to pick up new WPs if they're exclusive to them in some fashion. At least with AT&T it's only a timed exclusive but Verizon wants it's own unique model. And hey, if they pay for the order then Nokia will sell it to them.
