It was a huge week for Nokia, who announced and showed off hands-on demonstrations of two new phones. The company isn’t really seeking to make anything official until their event in London next Tuesday, but in its hands-on video discussed the phone’s specs and announced that Lumia 928 would be launching for Verizon.
- – 45-inch OLED display, with a 1280×768 resolution, that is covered by a layer of Gorilla Glass in order to better protect the screen from cracks and scratches
- – 8.7-megapixel camera with a xenon flash to enable better pictures in darker areas and crisper photos with less blur than ever before
- – 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor
- – 32GB of internal storage
The phone’s camera also allows it to take beautiful videos, however it’s the three microphones working in harmony that allow those videos to be able capture some of the crispest audio with minimal distortion.
The speaker on the back of the phone allows sound to be outputted at up to one to two decibels, making it easier to hear your favorite music and allows you to finally be able to put that low-talking friend of yours on speaker.
The Lumia 928 comes ready for wireless charging and with NFC. It’s also integrated with Windows Phone 8. The phone will launch in the US on May 16th for the low price of $99.99 with a mail-in rebate and officially replaces the Lumia 822. If you pick one up, you’ll also receive a $25 line of credit for Windows Phone apps and games.
