Bloomberg: Verizon will announce the Nokia Lumia 928 in May

Nokia Lumia 928
We can now add Bloomberg to the list of trustworthy sources claiming to have insider information about the upcoming Nokia Lumia 928. According to the media's anonymous tipsters, Verizon is going to announce the smartphone officially in May. And while it's expected to be about as capable as the Nokia Lumia 920, which is available in the U.S. exclusively with AT&T, it will bring a few notable improvements.

For starters, it is said that the Nokia Lumia 928 will have a body made of metal, meaning that it will be the first Lumia to not have a plastic shell. Wireless charging will also be supported by the device, if Bloomberg's sources are to be trusted. The screen will measure 4.5 inches in diagonal, and although its resolution isn't known yet, our guess is that Nokia will go with a 768 by 1280 pixel display. Last but not least, the Nokia Lumia 928 will have an 8-megapixel camera, according to the tipsters, and judging by those leaked photos, PureView technology will be on board, along with a xenon flash to assist in low-light situations. 

While we've seen the Nokia Lumia 928 in black and white only, the smartphone is expected to come in four different colors. We're also hoping that the new model will be lighter and thinner than the 185-gram Lumia 920.
