Nokia Lumia 928 appears officially: PureView, OIS and Carl Zeiss for Verizon

The long-rumored Nokia Lumia 928 has finally appeared officially on Nokia’s website and a huge advert in the Vanity Fair magazines basically confirm what we have heard about it. The Lumia 928 is indeed coming to Verizon Wireless soon and it will feature PureView camera technology with optical image stabilization and a Carl Zeiss lens. The device will be very similar to the Lumia 920 flagship and focus on great image capture capabilities in any conditions, including low light.

The phone has a squarish form and the usual button setup for a Nokia Lumia Windows Phone. Here is what the advert for the Lumia 928 reads:

“EVEN IN LOW LIGHT. Nokia exclusive PureView technology, Optical Image Stabilization and high-end Carl Zeiss lens. Capture and share amazing blur-free photos and videos, under any light conditions.”

This handset is good news for Verizon users, but it does not look like the 808 PureView sequel we are all waiting for.

Fiiine, both the Catwalk and EOS. Jeez Nokia can't you hold it in? You can't go showing off multiple highly anticipated devices all at once.

This is a old Nokia habit with Symbian OS phones so this news doesn't surprise me. Like everyone I will watch for the so called "EOS", even if I will never buy it because of the pathetic Windows Phone 8.

We do not see the back of the phone. And, probably, there is the bigest surprise :)

I don't see anything squarish in the picture above. If you're talking about the image in the magazine, it's because of the fold...sheesh.

That's because when her favorite company does it it's because they need not mess with perfection. When everyone else does it, it's lazy/boring. The 928 is just a Verizon 920. Why wouldn't it look similar?

Nice one Nokia. Just put your flagship phones on diet. Their weight kinda turns me off.

Just wish Nokia phones would have smaller bezel.
