The Verizon Nokia Lumia Icon just went on sale for $199.99 on-contract, but you can now score it for $149.99 with a promo code through Verizon's website.
The long-awaited Verizon Nokia Lumia Icon is now official and replaces the Lumia Lumia 928 as Verizon's flagship Windows Phone. The Lumia Icon deserves its title, as it brings high-end specs and features that are on a more level playing field with Android rivals than typical Windows Phones.
Nokia has packed in a stunning 5-inch 1920 x 1080 Full HD ClearBlack display that makes playing games, surfing the web, viewing pictures and more look amazing. Nokia didn't stop there, as it decided to put one of the most powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processors inside in order to keep up with everything you throw its way and not experience any lag.
Verizon is currently offering the Nokia Lumia Icon for $199.99 online and in retail stores, but if you use a special promotional code at checkout, you'll see the price come down to $149.99. As expected, you'll also need to sign a new 2-year contract to receive that price.
As a reminder, the Verizon Nokia Lumia Icon features a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 ClearBlack AMOLED Gorilla Glass 3 display with Super sensitive touch that allows users to operate it even while wearing gloves, and a very impressive pixel density of 441 pixels per inch (ppi) will render quality visuals. The handset is powered by a snappy 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM to provide a fast and fluid user interface. The handset ships with 32GB of internal storage and 7GB of free cloud storage.
The Lumia Icon has a 20-megapixel PureView rear camera with advanced imaging functions to get the best pictures possible, optical image stabilization (OIS), Dual LED Flash, ZEISS optics, 6-lens optics, high resolution zoom 2X and Nokia's professional Camera application. It also has a 1.2-megapixel HD camera for video chat and selfies. Its wireless connectivity options consist of a 4G LTE radio, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/a/c, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and NFC. The Icon ships with a 2,420 mAh battery that will provide up to 16.4 hours of talk time and 18 days of standby time. The smartphone also comes with support for wireless charging out of the box, but you'll need to supply your own charger.
