The past few weeks have been filled with tidbits about the Lumia 735 that is headed to Verizon. After the device passed through the FCC, it has become only a matter of time before the phone shows up at the carrier's retail outlets.
The official render that Verizon will use for its phone has been spotted online and posted above; to no surprise, the phone will ship with the latest version of Windows Phone 8.1. Seeing that Windows 10 for phones will not launch until after the release of the version for desktops, if Verizon were to wait for the new OS, they would not ship this device until this fall at the earliest.
All Windows Phone 8 devices can be upgraded to Windows 10 for phones as well, so launching with the older OS is not as big of a deal seeing as there is an upgrade path this time around.
The full specs are posted below but are subject to change as these did not come from the specific Verizon model:
- Height: 134.7 mm, width: 68.5 mm, thickness 2: 8.7 mm, weight: 130.4 g.
- Display resolution: 720p (1280 x 720) with pixel density at 316 ppi.
- 4.7in Display
- Rear camera 6.7MPx, Front camera Full HD 5MPx wide angle.
- Bluetooth: Bluetooth 4.0.
- Wi-Fi: WLAN IEEE 802.11 b/g/n.
- NFC enabled.
- 2220 mAh battery.
- 735 4G/LTE connectivity, 730 3G enabled.
- Quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400.
- 1GB RAM.
- 8GB storage with MicroSD slot up to 128GB, plus 15GB free cloud storage.
- OS: Windows Phone 8.1 with 'Lumia Denim' update.
With the official renders now present, and given that it has passed through the FCC, all that's left is for Verizon to make the official announcement. Of course, we will be curious to see how the company prices this device but it should be at the lower end of the pricing matrix.
