Nokia's upcoming Lumia 929 smartphone could reach Verizon subscribers in early November.

Citing "sources familiar with the matter," blog site Windows Phone Central said Monday that an inventory date of November 6 is listed for the Lumia 929. The device will reportedly sell for $500 off contract.

Little is known about the 929 so far. A couple of alleged photos of the phone leaked last week by @evleaks display the Verizon logo and the 4G LTE designation . Based on FCC documents, the 929 could sport a 5-inch display. The phone will also offer a color choice of black or white, according to @evleaks.

November is likely to be a busy month for Nokia, assuming all the latest reports prove true. The company could launch its 6-inch Lumia 1520 device on November 8 through AT&T, Windows Phone Central said. Both the 929 and 1520 are expected to be among several devices unveiled by Nokia at its Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi on October 22.
