Nokia Lumia 928 For Verizon Goes Official, Xenon Flash In Tow

By 12:28 Fri, 16 Jul 2021 Comments

Everyone thought that Nokia will announce the Lumia 928 at the May 14 event – well, it won't, the official announcement just occured. The phone is exclusive to Verizon and as expected is a beefed up version of the Lumia 920.

The Nokia Lumia 928 packs an 8.7MP image sensor that is optically stabilized and sits behind a 26mm wide-angle Carl Zeiss lens with F/2.0 aperture. Unlike the 920, the recent model packs Xenon flash alongside the standard Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash. It's quite impressive, considering that the Lumia 928 is just 0.5mm thicker than the Lumia 920.

The Nokia Lumia 928 can capture 1080p video at 30fps and record sounds as loud as 140dB thanks to its HAAC wide dynamic range microphones.

The classy screen is different too – it's still 4.5" in diagonal with 768 x 1,280 pixels resolution, but it's an AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display with ClearBlack and a High Brightness mode for up to 500 nits of brightness. It's still super sensitive and works with fingernails and gloves.

Other than that, the Lumia 928 is not too different from AT&T's Lumia 920 – it runs Windows Phone 8 on a 1.5Giga Hertz (GHz) dual-core Krait processor with 1GB of RAM, packs 32GB of built-in memory and a 2,000mAh battery.

On the connectivity side there's Verizon's quick 4G LTE along with dual-band Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. The phone supports wireless charging too.

The Nokia Lumia 928 will be available May 16 from Verizon for $100 after a $50 mail-in rebate on a 2-year contract. For a limited time you'll also acquire a $25 voucher for the Windows Marketplace. There will be two color versions at launch – Black and White.
