We’re in a quiet period right now for new Windows Phone handsets. Sure the Nokia Lumia Icon (aka the Lumia 929) is coming out relatively soon, but that device was expected months ago. After that handset comes out we really don’t expect much new hardware until after Build when Windows Phone 8.1 is expected to be unveiled. Nonetheless, Nokia has an unlisted video on their YouTube channel and we've got the scoop below.
And there you have it. We hear what sounds like an American muscle car getting revved up before speeding off into the distance. The tagline in the video says “see and hear what you’ve been missing” is definitely referring to a device with excellent imaging and audio recording capabilities.
What could it be? We do know the Lumia Icon specs and it does has a 20MP PureView sensor where it oversamples like on the Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520. It’s also expected to have at least three HAAC microphones. Other highlights include:
- Qualcomm Quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor at 2.2GHz
- 5-inch AMOLED display, 1080 x 1920
- 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (no micro SD)
- Dual LED Flash
- NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE
- Available in glossy white or matte black
It’s not a far stretch to think they’re teasing the Lumia Icon, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
