Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) may be selling its devices division to Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) very soon, but that hasn’t stopped the company from launching new devices. In fact, the Lumia 929, which hasn’t even been officially announced yet, is for sale in China, according to GSM Arena.

Lumia 929 specs listed

We’ve been hearing rumors about Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V)’s Lumia Icon handset for quite some time, including the specs it was expected to have. The listing on the Chinese marketplace indicates that the handset has a Snapdragon 800 SoC chip from QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM), plus 2 gigs of RAM and 32 gigs of memory built into the device. There’s also reportedly a microSD card slot and a 20-megapixel PureView camera. The Lumia 929 is also reported as having a 5-inch screen.

Recently the handset showed up on Verizon Wireless’ website as well, so there seems to be little doubt that it will be launching very soon. In fact, the appearance of the Lumia 929 on the Chinese marketplace is at least the third time this particular name has surfaced in a prominent place. The handset was called the Lumia Icon on the Verizon Wireless page, and it was listed for $777 with a new two-year contract or month to month. The specs which were listed there are the same as the ones listed on the Chinese marketplace, so it would seem that they’re probably accurate.
