Leaked screenshot indicates Nokia flagship for Verizon to be the Lumia 928
There has been some chatter of a “hero” Lumia headed to Verizon for a little over a month now. Back in late January was when we heard that a “special” model for big red, code-named Laser, would make an appearance about the same time that another Nokia device known as the Catwalk which is possibly bound for T-Mobile USA

A tipster just handed us a screen shot purportedly from Verizon’s internal system, showing a line-item of Nokia devices. We see a Lumia 822 in Gray, then Red, then White and then…what’s this? Nokia Lumia 928? Entered into the system in mid-January? That could work nicely with when we started reading rumblings about a new Lumia coming to Verizon. It also aligns nicely since we saw a Nokia device, model RM-860 visit the FCC recently. 

What do we know about this device? Well we can expect at a bare minimum that it would be at least as wholesome as the Lumia 920 that AT&T has been sporting since the debut of Windows Phone 8. Based on what we think we know, the screen resolution will be 1280x768 and from the single sketch that was tied to the FCC, we can gather that this device will not look like the 920.

There is word of a new PureView device coming to the US, which could be bestowing some of the wonderful components from the 808 PureView. Is that what could make its way to Verizon?

We do not know and that might be too hopeful a thought, but we are pretty excited to find out either way soon!

Thanks for the tip!

PureView as it is implemented on the L920, maybe. PureView as in 41+ Mp sensor, doubtful. Remember, Nokia has to keep its exclusive carrier partner (AT&T) happy. AT&T gets a 6-month exclusive on the new toys from Nokia. If the L928 (or whatever it ends up being called) drops in mid-April, 2013, that is (guess what...) - 6 months almost to the day from when the L920 started selling at AT&T! Nokia gives the middle-fingered wave again.

I'll see your poorly received Z and raise you a nano-coated Lumiahttp://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_set_to_release_p2i_nanocoated_water_resisting_phone-news-5635.php

best built really? no denying the Z is a quality product in terms of build quality but its not the best. in your eyes as its android it must be the best as you cant stand a different os having anything better example- if both a xperia Z and lumia 920 were dropped onto concrete and the Z cracked or had significant damage but the 920 didnt you would still blindly say the Z is better....and before you try jumping on that it was a made up example to show your blind views

928 is a weird number. Why not stick with the ##2 scheme? Or, new thought, it could be named like cars are, first number is the series (5, 6, 7, 8, 9), second is which generation (0, 1, 2, etc), last number is megapixel count if single digit, or 0 if more than 9. So the 822 would have been the 828, 920 would have been 928, 520 would be 525, 620 would have been the 615 (if my memory serves). Thoughts?

Can't wait to see what it looks like. I am hoping for 2Gig Ram and 4.7 or greater screen. Also I would like to see greater screen density (440ppi or greater). I know it is just wishful thinking but if it should come true, my HTC 8x is outta here.

If its a Verizon remake of the 920 I will be disappointed but not surprised. If its a new WP8 then that will be good news.
