Back in January a rumor about Verizon Wireless preparing its own version of the Nokia Lumia 920 Windows 8 smartphone spread through the Web. Today, tt turns out that it is not a rumor after all. The carrier is working hard with Nokia to bring the Windows flagship handset to the market any time soon. Source “close to Nokia” reveals that Verizon might start offering the handset even next month. The Nokia Lumia 928, previously known as Laser, will come with a few upgrades when compared to the already selling Lumia 920 on AT&T network.
Nokia Lumia 928 vs. Lumia 920 – Overview
First of all, a different kind of material was used to make the case of the Lumia 928. The new handset will have somewhat redesigned aluminum body, which will make it noticeably lighter. The phone will be more “squared” with slightly curved back, resembling the Nokia Lumia 720, and will also be thinner – just 0.40 inches (10.2 mm) at the thinnest point. The camera will still be an 8 megapixel PureView-branded unit but it will also offer some improvements, such as a new Xenon flash mostly for nighttime photos or LED flash for recording purposes.
The Nokia Lumia 928 will be launched with a 4.5-inch OLED display and will support SVLTE (simultaneous voice and LTE). Other specs and features, like its processor, RAM, etc. are expected to be identical to the Lumia 920. When the phone debuts on Verizon network in April, it may make a significant competition to upcoming HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4.
