Lumia 929 render shows phone in white; another monochromatic Nokia for Verizon?


Nokia’s Lumia 929 sprung up on us out of nowhere a little over a week ago, showing the sort of home screen packed with extra Live Tiles that we expect to get from 1080p models running GDR3, like the Lumia 1520 phablet. Shortly after getting our first look at the phone’s front, a rear shot seemed to reveal the presence of a 20-megapixel camera. That all had the 929 looking very much like it could be a variant of the 1520 itself, though maybe one in a slightly smaller package. Most recently, we’ve even heard about the phone’s possible release date, with November 6 coming up as a possibility, and making it seem likely that Nokia would announce the handset at its October 22 event. As we count down the days between now and then, a new look for the 929 has arrived, with a new render depicting the handset in white.

The only change up front is the presence of white trim, with the majority of the white finish making itself known around back. Everything else looks like it’s in exactly the same place as that earlier render.

All told, this means that we’ve now seen the 929 in both white and black, though none of the more vibrant hues Nokia’s been known to dabble with. Considering that this model is destined for Verizon, though, doesn’t make the absence of bold colors too surprising; just look at the Lumia 928, itself only available in white and black.
