The report claims to come from ‘industry sources’ but we suggest you to take this report with some amount of salt because last year’s Lumia 928, another Verizon exclusive which did not make it to the global market. We are quite sure that a similarly specced device will be launched globally soon but with a different design and more color options.

The Lumia Icon is what we wished the Lumia 1520 to be. All of those great hardware in a more compact form factor. Well, we should see the device launch with Windows Phone 8.1 which Microsoft announced yesterday at MWC. We will know more in April about Windows Phone 8.1 at Microsoft’s annual Build conference.
