More details emerge about Verizon’s upcoming flagship Nokia Lumia 928
posted by Maxwell R. / Mar 12, 2013, 4:18 PM
Two sources of information are coming together and revealing that the Lumia 928, codenamed “Laser,” will also be blessed with an aluminum body like the rumored “Catwalk” which is said to be on its way to T-Mobile USA.
For the Lumia 928, which was leaked to us earlier this month, in addition to the aluminum body, the camera has been augmented with a xenon/LED flash arrangement. The new body will make the 928 lighter and little thinner than its Lumia 920 cousin. The shape of the device may resemble the Lumia 720 more than the 920. Other internals, such as the CPU and memory are expected to be the same. The Lumia 928 will also support simultaneous voice and LTE.
There is some conflicting rumor information related to storage on the Lumia 928, The Verge is asserting that the device will have 32GB of storage with no microSD expansion, like the Lumia 920. A purported Verizon employee is leaking that the device will have 16GB of storage with microSD support up to 64GB. Moreover, the Lumia 928 will have the same color options we have come to expect from the new generation of Windows Phone 8 devices, black, white, red and cyan.
The Lumia 928 is apparently slated for a release in April, though no firm date has been offered. Pricing is not official either, but full retail might be $550 and the subsidized price will be $200 unless Nokia works a deal (which is possible given how long the Lumia 822 has been free with a two-year agreement). The tipster also provided some insight about Verizon’s excitement over Windows Phone.

I would fully break down the business of web views to you but I'll keep it simple. Nokia + Windows phone is a joke. Samsung and the S4 is the real deal. Take any random mention of the Galaxy S4 versus this announcement and compare the page views and comments.

They haven't mentioned that it wont yet (unless I missed that). The Verizon 8X is a World Phone.

Most these phones make it to international. Keeping my fingers crossed. So far quite reluctant to give up my aluminum Titan, but waiting for the fabled Nokia on the horizon might move me to WP8 finally.

Verizon phones are on the CDMA network, which is rare outside the US. Some of their LTE (data-only) radios work on international carriers, but don't expect a worldwide version (though perhaps a global version with an added SIM slot but typically only available at full retail price).

Specs still remain unchanged and just a aluminum upgrade. Atleast upgrade the camera and CPU, GPU. Still in "Beta" Look at the Htc One X, Experia Arc S.™®©
