    This isn't exactly selling it officially, but it seems somebody has got at least 3 Lumia 929's to sell with plenty of pictures. Lumia 929 looks to be manufactured over at Nokia's China factory at the moment. Should not take much longer.

    I wouldn't personally do that. One thing is will they ship it yo you (if you live in Europe or US). I got a feeling Lumia 929 might be announced, if not available by the time it ships to you. It looks like they have been manufacturing them for some time already.
    Again depending on where you live you would need to pay taxes.

    Though you are right that the price doesn't seem bad at all. Actually quite cheap when you compare it to other high end phone prices in China by the Western manufacturers.

    if it's $600 in China, could we hope for $500 or less here in the U.S?

    China is known for making knockoffs...I wouldn't trust that.

    True, but look at the pictures. You can spot those knockoffs quite easily from such detailed pics like that. They never get them quite as polished as the final product.
    Would I trust them to sell me one? Of course not, but for the very least they seem to have handled the real product and posted pictures about it. That's the only thing we care in the end.

    Nokia's factory making those high end Lumias is situated in China.

    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.

    Nokia would have come to know of this by now. I do not think the seller will be able to sell these phone for long before the actual announcement.

    Not all. They have around 7 factories in 6 countries, but yeah high end Lumias are coming from China. Lower end Lumias are also made in Brazil and Korea.

    That's likely what has happened. This didn't really use to happen before as much of the very top end phones were made in Finland and the whole prototype production was there. From low end to high end.

    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.

    Nice looking. In black it looks an awful lot like my current 928. I'd love to see some high resolution white (or red - LOL at myself) pics.

    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.

    Do you really think they would sell a Verizon branded phone in China?

    It wouldn't be unlikely; lots of Nokia phones are manufactured in China, and these phones could have easily escaped some workers...

    +1, I doubt Verizon is on board with this. I'd not be risking my money but just sayin' seems scam is written all over this.

    Well, those phones are made in there.
    Main point here is not that somebody might have 6 Lumia 929's and is selling them. It's that we got more detailed pictures that even so firmware versions, internal memory etc.

    +1, I doubt Verizon is on board with this. I'd not be risking my money but just sayin' seems scam is written all over this.
    Of course Verizon isn't on board on this one. :D The seller is just selling 6 phones he got into his hands, if he actually even has them anymore.

    Once again, the main point isn't that some random shop in China has got 6 Lumia 929's and you should buy it. You shouldn't. The main point is that we got the most detailed pics of the phone yet.

    Would the English language even be available on a Chinese phone? Chinese isn't on U.S. phones generally.

    I would imagine that's the case for areas like Hong Kong. Though I don't know if there are different firmware versions between mainland and not mainland China.
