Nokia Lumia 925 tapped for May 14th unveiling?
Nokia is expected to unveil the Nokia Lumia 928 during its May 14th event in London. That certainly excites Verizon customers, who have been waiting for the model for some time. But word out of China is that another oft-rumored Nokia model will be unwrapped at the same time. According to the report, the Nokia Lumia 925 will be also be introduced during the same event.

This is the international version of the aluminum clad model known as the Nokia Catwalk. Besides having casings made of different material, the Nokia Lumia 925 and Nokia Lumia 928 are expected to share specs including the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, a 4.5 inch screen with resolution of 768 x 1280, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The rear-facing camera is the 'money shot' on both phones with an 8.7MP sensor and a f/2.0 aperture for terrific shots in low-light conditions. Both devices are said to have a 2000mAh non removable battery.

Of the three rumored Nokia models that are all still unannounced, we can apparently account of the Nokia Lumia 928 and the Nokia Catwalk (at least the international model). Now we would like to hear some more about the Nokia Lumia EOS. This is allegedly the Windows Phone version of the Symbian flavored Nokia 808 PureView complete with a 41MP rear facing camera and whatever new features to the camera that can be added. The last we heard, the Nokia Lumia EOS could launch as soon as July.

I love Nokia, but I hope that this camera design is not real! The camera is like a FLAT WORMHOLE EYEBALL!

Nokia needs to make it more pleasing to the eye! Come on Nokia, we want a nice design, show those people who said Nokia is a junk, show them that Nokia is not a weakling, let them faint!

What happened to the concept of a curved back (like the HTC One) to cover the 'bump'? Are Nokia afraid of HTC? I mean really... If Nokia are shy of a design patent fight, I suspect something could be worked out. Like some HDR microphones from ST Microelectronics in exchange for a license....

Its funny how you wonder Nokia's way to act.

Nokia happens to respect patents and other OEM IP. Nokia research its own technology and designs, unlike HTC (and Shamesung) who just steals withouth any shame.

Many Asian OEM steals first, change the product a bit and then pretend and talk its original innovation of them. HTC is good with this.

HTC - Quietly briliant -->
HTC - Quietly stealing

My Lumia 900 and my brothers 920 get dust in it all the time and it's nearly impossible to get out. I stopped caring about the design, JUST FIX IT

I wouldn't sweat the bubble-y camera... unless you like "naked" phones, a case should fix any issue there about scratching the lens when setting it on it's back.
So the aesthetics of the bulge become a moot point.

Should be another solid offering from Nokia.

Ok, Nokia always a reference in mobile cameras, the only thing missing is that sells millions like windows phone Android and only then can return to the top 9 of the big companies in the world. but if you want to start growing again, must hurry because the competition is fierce.

And I'm sure Verizon would like to have some bragging rights over AT&T. "You may have gotten it first, but ours is better."

why is Nokia into this non removable battery kick in the design of their flagship smart phones. I hope that the Nokia 928 has wireless charging i am already approved to get mine at verizon. i hope it can hold it's charge ok. i kind of envy those who can swap out their battery i would have
bought the Nokia 822 but it's screen resolution was too low. if I have to buy a smart phone on a 2 year ontract i want a top smart phone with an 700 to 1080 HD screen please
