Verizon's Nokia Lumia 928 claimed imminent with launch in May, three more Lumias leak


We got tipped that the Nokia Lumia 928, which might turn to Catwalk for T-Mobile, because of the expectations to be a gorgeous aluminum-clad version of the chubby flagship 920, might be announced very soon, and stock is due to arrive in Verizon's stores in the third week of May. The internal coding for this device's versions are reported as RM-860 for Verizon, RM-893 for T-Mobile and RM-892 for the international version.

Let's not forget that we are also expecting the Nokia EOS to be announced for AT&T some time in July, coded as RM-877, and being the much-awaited Lumia version of the groundbreaking 41 MP 808 PureView.

Meanwhile, the Love Wallpaper HD app logs revealed codenames for three more Lumias that are down Nokia's pipeline - RM-941, RM-943 and RM-910. The first two seem to be versions of a mysterious device slated for Chinese carriers, with claimed WVGA resolution, whereas the RM-910 is said to sport 1280x768 pixels screen of unknown size, which might be the rumored phablet, though WP will support Full HD resolutions soon. 

Let's not forget yesterday a research company came up with a report calculating the slice of the market Windows phablets will get in the next five years, although there are currently none of those. Yet it is still early to speculate on anything, other than the fact how Nokia seems to have a full portfolio coming down the pipe pretty soon.

I can't help but laughing when I saw 1280x720 resolution... What's this? 2012?

I can't help but laughing when I see people who look at their mobiles from 5 cm to see any difference.

Samsung fans actually do this.

I disagree....though you won't be able to really tell even if you were to look at it as close as possible, the 1080P full HD screen will still look overall more crisp compared to the 720P, because of the pixel density. Look at a close up of mac photo's of 720 versus 1080 on some forums...you can clearly see the difference. I've looked at an HTC DNA with a 1080 versus my Galaxy S3 with the 720 and I call tell the difference. Even thought the super amoled colors are more vibrant, the 1080P screen on the HTC looked crisper to me.

I agree. Well you were also comparing to a Pentile 720p screen versus 1080p RGB. Definitely a difference, I can see a huge difference between my Gnexus and the Lumia 920. However, looking at the 920 against the HTC One, there wasn't much of a difference. I could still tell the HTC was crisper, but I was also looking close and expecting to see a difference.

I didn't hear you say "What's this? 2006?" when Samsung released its flaship with Pentile YET again. Just a little rearrangement and voila! We have a "new" subpixel arrangement. If you actually calculate the subpixel density, S4 is around 880, Lumia 920 is 996 and HTC One is around 1404. So in reality, the android king S4's display is a bit '2012' compared to others. But you're too brainwashed to realize this. Let's all just pretend there is nothing like subpixels.

Sorry, but you are the one that look at your mobile from 5cm to see pixels if you care about Pentile -.-

I can't help but laughing when I saw a troll laughing like a jerk...What's this? Jerk?

dude 720p for a screen is still good for 4.7 below. saves more precious battery and you probably won't notice the difference unless you really try hard enough.

When are they actually going to officially reveal this new phone? It's getting real close. I thought it was going to be revealed along side the QWERTY Asha 210.

I'm guessing May 21st together with the new xBox. They already made some invitations. But i'm only guessing.

That makes sense ... kinda. We'll see.

that can't be right specially if you consider what is written in this article...it says that the devices are to be shipped in the third week of may...so it isn't possible for them to announce and release the phones with small intervals of time between each 0.0 doesn't sound legit, does it ? ofc what you said would possibly make sense if the date in the article isn't right

Let me just say I'm not buying this outdated crap. Android is so much better. I would rather have the HTC One Verizon.

Who cares? Even though I love Android, but I love Windows Phone too! These two OS are my favorite!

Let's not forget that this is subjective. We all like different OS for different reasons. I liked Android for all the time I had it but I absolutely love WP8 and of course my Lumia. I won't be moving away from WP anytime soon.

I love WP8 too! I'm using Android (Xperia Z), I will change to WP soon!

Let's face it. WP is fighting for 3rd place. Android is everything and a bag of chips. I did not mean to down vote you because I do respect your opinion. But the facts remain that Microsoft blew it big time with 6.5 users. And they screwed 7.5 buyers from last year. I will not forget that.

No problem...you are entitled to your opinion and you are obviously correct that WP is currently battling for third place and will be for some time yet I guess. Having said that, I do read a lot of comments from Android fans who are warming to WP or have maybe even converted already. It is growing in popularity. Appreciate problems original WP users may have experienced but for someone coming to WP for the first time, I have to say that it is nothing but a pleasurable experience for me.

You do care. I don't remember seeing the S4 with worst battery life than the S3.

28. StreetNerd

nah.... i enjoy my 720p screen and i had the xperia Z nothing special bout full HD LOL coz the S4 has a bigger battery perhaps?

but why the lumia 920 not a full hd screen(1080p) is draining its battery so fast..then the (note2) glaxy s4 w/ 5" 1080p screen can manage its battery more times better that lumia 920 or 1p5..

17. LumiaLover

Posts: 237; Member since: Sep 27, 2012

Really and on what basis do you come to this conclusion, because my Lumia 920 will last for almost 2 days with moderate use. It is easily as good if not better than my old S3.

Posts: 237; Member since: Sep 27, 2012

Oh wait...the S4 hasn't shipped yet so once again on what basis do you come to the conclusion that the battery life is "more times better"? Do you even own a smartphone? Do you work for Samsung? hate_dc = hate decent cellphones lol

I had a play with the HTC One in store recently. Lovely phone, lovely screen but it lagged like hell. There is only one reason for this....Android! WP8...smooth, fluid, beautiful. I love WP!!

you know why wp8 is smooth...bcus it cant make a multitasking on the background that why wp8 dont need more core to run smooth...and for the battery of s4 just look for some battery test for s4... and face the truth...ppl buying wp bcus of the hardware of nokia..if wp dont lost nokia for its partner...wp will go down....and if nokia will go andriod...i know nokia can beat samsung and apple....hate me more...yeaaahhh

the multi-tasking arguement is very subjective in my opinion. People can make that argument all they want about android, but you don't really need "real" multi-tasking. I just got my Lumia 920 not too long ago and the only app that i multi-task with is Pandora. Everything else I can do just fine w/o the need for the real thing .. I love the wp8 OS. No more android for me :)
