While Nokia’s high-end phones like the Lumia 1020 and the Lumia 925 sport some pretty nice hardware and features, interestingly it is still Nokia’s lower-end offerings like the Lumia 520 that are the best-sellers, appealing to emerging markets where customers want a smartphone but can’t afford more expensive devices like the iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S4. Well if you’re after an affordable Windows Phone handset, thanks to a leaked rendering obtained by WMPoweruser, we are looking at the Lumia 729 which apparently will be a variant of the Lumia 720 destined for Verizon, although the carrier’s branding on the phone seems to be missing.
In any case according to the leaked information, this handset will be placed under the Lumia 928 and the Lumia 822 and while the specs of the device remain unknown, interestingly it has been reported that the handset will feature a PureView camera, although we’re not sure if this will be of the same quality and caliber of the Lumia 1020. The pricing and release date of this alleged device remain unknown for now, but we’ll definitely keep our eyes and ears peeled for more news, so stay tuned for updates!
