Nokia Laser: a flagship Lumia Windows Phone for Verizon

Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 stock back

Verizon is planning to stock a high-end Nokia Lumia phone this year. Sources familiar with Verizon's plans have revealed to The Verge that the US carrier will offer a device that has similar specifications to Nokia's current Lumia 920. We understand that the handset, codenamed Laser, will be a variant of the 920 that's set to debut alongside a Catwalk device.

Sources have revealed that Microsoft is planning to back Verizon's Nokia Laser device heavily. We're told that the Laser will be a flagship device for Verizon, meaning the operator will market it alongside rival top tier devices. Microsoft is said to be investing marketing dollars to push the Laser when it debuts later this year. A Lumia 920 variant for Verizon has long been rumored, but Big Red customers will be happy to hear that it's almost here.

We reached out to Nokia about Laser, but a company spokesperson refused to comment.
