    There are those old pics of the white version, but they re everything else than high resolution. :) I like the white slightly more because it reveals those aluminium sides.

    Yep, I remember that pic of it. Looks sharp.

    I'm actually liking it a lot. I thought the phone looked outright boring and boxy from the initial press shot leaked by Evleaks.
    Looks a lot better in these real life pictures. Not much bezel there and that curved screen and back do look pretty damn nice. That aluminium ring is also a nicer looking on these real life pics.

    Could this be the first time US gets better variant of a phone? Hopefully there will be variant for Europe.

    I really hope this is the week they announce it. Those leaked copies in China, plus new videos and photos have me believing that it's soon, but I guess with Verizon we shouldn't be holding our breath for too long. Still, here's to hoping!

    Saw this...
    Other than the price tag as well as live photos of the Nokia Lumia 929, hardware specifications for this puppy has also been shared, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 system-on-a-chip, 2GB RAM, 32GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot, a 5” 1080p display, and a 20MP PureView camera to get you started right out of the box. Anyone interested in picking this puppy up when it becomes available?

    That is not true, well part about where phones were built. I have my 4th Nokia and none of my Nokias was made in Finland. First 3 Nokias were built in Hungary ( Nokia 5200, 6220 Classic and Nokia C6-01) and now Lumia 820 is built in China.
    I have two 925's and one (16gb) was made in Hungary and the other (32gb) was made in China.

    The glance screen on the Hungarian made one is much brighter for some reason.

    I thought all Nokia factories in Europe were closed ? So look like they are not. It is however odd that I recived Chinese phone but Hungary is our neighbour country.

    What I found interesting was the report in the side column a 1520 "mini" variant. What is Nokia doing?

    and the specs on that page show....

    32gb and a MicroSD slot ? If that is true, I will be getting this phone....

    They're probably talking about the sim card slot...

    They also say it has a much bigger battery size than we've seen in the leaked versions of the phone.

    Like I said in another thread, it really shows what we know about this phone. Mostly rumors till we get the official statement from Verizon/Nokia/Microsoft...

    It would be nice tho... I will get the phone for sure if it does offer both. I did notice when they pulled out the SIM slot, it looks like it's 2 sided, it could be a dual SIM or MicroSD/SIM on one slot....

    About the only person who knows is who made the phone or the person who is selling the leaked phones right now...

    The Big Red brass sure know how to execute a quality roll out. Even if this wasn't planned (which I'm assuming it wasn't), they might want to address the situation rather than just blowing silence and ignoring the fact that there UNNANOUNCED MYSTERY PHONE THAT DOESN'T EXIST is now for sale.

    I'm not so sure WPCentral is available in China because of their censorship and so on, and nearly all Lumia phones are made in China at Nokia's one of three facilities. Shame really, oh well.

    Looking at that they are saying the battery is 3400mA, which would be pretty awesome. Likely would have even better life than the 1520 does if it's true.
    I think that's a typo. It's 2400mA

    Yeah - has to be a typo. An increase of 1000mAh in that size of package would be plastered all over the headlines. That would be an order of magnitude increase in power density.

    If I'm not mistaken wasn't the battery specs leaked on Verizon's test page? That should be enough proof to not even question the battery size anymore. This also goes along with what's already been said from a person that has the device. I wish it wasn't true but I say everything we have heard about the phone is true, only thing we don't know is release date.

    I'm finding myself more interested in this phone, since there's been no word of a 1020 variant. I'd love for this phone to have the 41MP camera. Shame. But the more I don't hear about that coming to Verizon, the more I'm interested in this phone.

    With regards to the ones for sale in China, my worry wouldn't be as much whether they would ship the phone or not, but whether you could activate it on Verizon. The question would be whether the IMEI would be valid since these obviously didn't go through the right channels.

    For the battery I've seen rumors on 2000, 2420, 2510, and 3400 mA for battery sizes. The 2420mA was on the verizon site, most of the other rumors leaned toward 2510mA. The most recent was from the chinese site saying it was 3400mA. It probably is just the 2420mA, but I really have no clue which is the right one.
    Maybe someday it might get released so we can all find out.

    For the longest time I was completely convinced it was 2510 because that was shown in leaked device images when the phone was opened up. But that was a couple months ago. And with how long the delay has been, I have no idea if that will remain the battery size, especially now that Verizon's own website says a different number than what was printed on the inside of the device on the battery in a previous leak. So my brain hurts and I have no idea what to believe, haha.

    That, plus to be honest, I think they're hot and I wouldn't touch one with a 10 foot pole.

    when will be released in the U.S is the first question. then we can talk about international :P my best answer would be, wait for Mobile world congress. you'll probably see something better for international users and AT&T customers like always

    if it's $600 in China, could we hope for $500 or less here in the U.S?
    No way. Lumia 929 has 20mp preview camera and it will be a flagship replacing 925? It will cost 700$ minimum.
