Nokia Lumia 928 officially bringing more Windows Phone 8 to Verizon on May 16
Nokia and Verizon Wireless have finally announced the Lumia 928 – a new Windows Phone 8 handset that we’ve been seeing around quite a lot lately. So, after all, that May 14 event in London will be for another Lumia product.
As expected, the Lumia 928 will be exclusively sold by Verizon in the US, becoming the carrier’s second Nokia-made WP8 device (after the affordable Lumia 822).
Like the Lumia 920 (offered in the US by AT&T), Verizon’s Lumia 928 has an 8.7MP PureView camera with Carl Zeiss lens and OIS (optical image stabilization). The difference is that this new camera comes with Xenon flash instead of a dual-LED one.
Other features: LTE, global roaming capabilities, NFC, a a 4.5-inch OLED ClearBlack display with Gorilla Glass and 1280 x 768 pixels, Nokia Here (Maps, Drive+, City Lens), Nokia Music, “high-performance microphones that record sound naturally and distortion-free, up to 140db”, 1GB of RAM, 32GB internal memory, 7GB free storage space with SkyDrive, wireless charging capabilities, and a 2,000 mAh battery.
Verizon will sell the Nokia Lumia 928 starting May 16, for $99.99 on contract. That’s a great price for such a capable smartphone, and the deal is sweetened even more with a $25 Windows Phone Store credit (as previously rumored).

Nokia didn’t say when (or if) the Lumia 928 will be released in other markets.
