Nokia's 5" Smartphone Lumia Icon Spotted On Verizon's Website

The Windows Phone 8 device is probably only meant for the US market.


Facing the "Go big or, go extinct" scenario, Nokia has already rolled out its first oversized smartphone Lumia 1520. After this 6-inch device though, the Finns are now going with a more acceptable "phablet" size. The company is ready to unveil its first 5" smartphone called Lumia Icon. The official announcement is expected at CES 2014, but the American network provider Verizon has already listed it on their website. The webpage has many missing links and images. The phone has been pegged $777, which definitely is a placeholder and not the actual price. From whatever information we can find from the website, this 5" phone features an HD screen. Its 20 megapixel camera has Zeiss optics and OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) technology. It's powered by a 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset. The phone packs in 2420 mAh battery, with the convenience of built-in wireless (induction) charging.

The Icon will feature a metallic frame. As far its aesthetics are concerned, the phone looks blocky like Verizon's other exclusive handset Lumia 928. Coming to the subject of availability, there's a good chance that the Lumia Icon will release outside the US. However, we may get a better looking International variant instead.
