Verizon Nokia Lumia 920 (928) News Update: Same Specs, New Branding
The last time we saw smartphones equipped with a xenon flash was when the Motorola Milestone and Nokia N8 entered the scene a couple of years ago, the former did sport a xenon flash that everyone’s been craving for but its overall performance was sluggish at best and the image quality wasn’t exactly pleasing at times. The latter’s camera on the other hand was a good all-rounder, powerful flash, great image quality and that renowned Nokia fit and finish that’s to die for. The N8 was indeed a winner but its antiquated Symbian operating system was nothing to brag about.
So, neither was perfect, what is Nokia hiding up its sleeves now?
Well, several reports are suggesting that the highly rumored successor to the Lumia 920 — the Lumia 928 — will actually sport an all-aluminum chassis and design with a profile similar to that of the Lumia 720. Let us not forget about the ‘genuine’ PureView imaging system found on the Nokia PureView 808 alongside the much-loved xenon flash. All that hardware goodness will be subjected under the Windows Phone 8 mobile OS’s command of course.
According to The Verge, internal hardware such as the processor and amount of memory are no different from the Lumia 920 and that it will come with a 4.5-inch OLED display and simultaneous voice and LTE support or SVLTE which is already being leveraged by quite a few handsets from Verizon Wireless and a feature that, unfortunately, Apple’s flagship iPhone 5 does not.
The Lumia 928 will purportedly hit Big Red’s doors sometime in April, we’ve previously reported that Nokia’s upcoming flagship has already passed through FCC and that Verizon is already prepping up for its launch, better keep those credit cards and wallets ready, Nokia and Verizon are cooking up something that will surely put smiles on Nokia’s PureView fanboys’ faces pretty soon.
