Nokia unveiling Lumia 928 for Verizon next month, says Bloomberg

74

Nokia's new flagship Lumia 928 for Verizon is reportedly scheduled for a launch in May. Bloomberg reports that Verizon will "unveil a plan next month" for the Lumia 928, which reportedly features a "metal body" alongside a 4.5-inch screen, an 8-megapixel camera, and wireless charging. The Verge's own sources have previously indicated that Nokia will not be using an aluminum frame for this particular device, opting instead for a thinner polycarbonate body.

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop recently hinted at a new Lumia due "later this quarter" with a hero status on a leading US carrier ahead of "a season of new product introductions." Elop didn't name-check the Lumia 928 specifically, but he has previously refused to answer questions about the model. Leaked photos of the device surfaced earlier this month, showing a similar handset to Nokia's existing Lumia 920 with the addition of a Xenon flash at the rear.

The Lumia 928 should appear in the coming weeks

We're told that Nokia has been waiting on final testing of Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 GDR2 update, and Bloomberg's report suggests that the Lumia 928 will launch in May instead of April as originally planned. Either way, expect to see Verizon's Lumia 928 over the coming weeks.
