In Short

The Lumia Icon (previously known as the 'Lumia 929') is a custom Windows Phone designed for Verizon Wireless in the United States by Nokia. The phone was released on February 20, 2014 and it's Verizon’s first ‘phablet’ Windows Phone. The phone had been speculated as coming in late 2013, but internal delays pushed it back.

Featuring a 5-inch, 1080P display, the device is a follow up to the Lumia 928 but it features more advanced hardware, including 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, Qi wireless charging and a 2.2 GHz Quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. The rather large phone also features a 20 MP rear PureView camera with oversampling technology akin to the Lumia 1020.

The phone launched with Windows Phone 8 Update 3 and Nokia’s Lumia Black firmware. It will get the Windows Phone 8.1 update in mid-2014.

On April 2nd 2014, Nokia announced the Lumia 930, which is the international version of the Lumia Icon. It has the same internal hardware as the Icon but comes in an assortment of colors.
