Nokia Lumia 928 Windows Phone 8 Handset Announced, Check Price & Availability [VIDEO]

The Finnish company has officially pulled back the curtain on the Nokia’s Lumia 928 Windows Phone 8 device, with all new 8.7 megapixel PureView camera as its major features. Here are the details to check after the jump!

Nokia with this official announcement of the forthcoming Lumia 928 surprised some competitors, who seemed sure of its main specs. Finally, Lumia 928 will be arriving to the United States as an exclusive to Verizon, but the device itself remains unchanged from the Nokia Lumia 920. Verizon will be allowing those on the nation’s most subscribed-to network a chance of trying out a genuine Windows Phone 8 handset.

With the PureView technology, although the Lumia 920 still boasts the best cameras in the business, and was an AT&T-only affair. Now with Verizon serving 115 million customers, did limit the reach of both the device itself and the new Windows Phone 8 platform. Whereas the 920 has an awesome screen and would be similar to the latest Lumia 928, but the newer is notably thinner and lighter than a device which was rather bulky to spot.

Nokia Lumia 928 as a new flagship phone offers an 8.7-megapixel rear-facing camera, which boasts optical image stabilization for better low-light photography and more stable pictures overall. With the winning OIS and so called the best “PureView” technology remain, along with that Carl Zeiss lens is one of all high-end Lumia devices’ marquee features, along with the same display and interiors will also penetrate for the Lumia 928.

The Symbian company with this new phone added a wireless charging and NFC, as did its predecessor, and comes along with a 4.5-inch OLED display (1280 x 768) display with 334PPI, like the Lumia 920. Officially, it has been not yet confirmed about the rumored aluminum body may replace the shiny polycarbonate that has become something of a trademark for Nokia.

No doubt that Nokia is playing catch-up in the smartphone world, and however, the Windows Phone Store still need a number and variety of apps which are required to mount a decent challenge to Android and iOS. Apart this, the other stats include the same touch-sensitive tech that can work through gloves and fingernails that were implemented with the 920 – a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, a 1.2MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

The Nokia Lumia 928 will be available to Verizon Wireless customers for just $99.99 on a two-year agreement just two days after Nokia’s event on May 16.
