After leaving nothing to imagination thanks to numerous leaks, Nokia finally took the wraps off the Lumia Icon for Verizon Wireless. The LTE device with Windows Phone 8 will be available in the carrier’s retail stores on February 20 for $199.99 with a two-year contract.

Design-wise, the Nokia Lumia Icon looks a lot like its predecessor, the Nokia Lumia 928. The Verizon-exclusive device looks boxy compared to its internationally available siblings.

The Nokia Lumia Icon features elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with 2.2Giga Hertz (GHz) quad-core CPU, 2GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 32GB of built-in, non-expandable memory on board. The display is a 5” super sensitive ClearBlack AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) unit with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) and pixel density of 441ppi.

The main capturing camera of the Nokia Lumia Icon is a 20MP PureView unit with 1/2.5” BSI sensor, f/2.4, OIS, and a dual-LED flash. It is capable of capturing 1080p videos @ 30 fps.

Like its Lumia 1520 and Lumia 1020 siblings, the Nokia Lumia Icon can capture full resolution photos, as well as scaled-down, high-quality 5MP images for easier sharing. A host of preloaded software such as Nokia Camera, Creative Studio, Cinemagraph, etc. enhances the capturing camera experience even further.

Connectivity of the smartphone includes Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0. The phone will work with a nano-SIM card. Strangely for a US smartphone, the Lumia Icon has Frequency Modulation (FM) radio too.

The physical measures of the Nokia Lumia Icon are 137 x 71 x 9.8mm, while its weight tips the scale at 167 grams. The device is powered by a 2,420mAh battery with Qi wireless charging capability.
