White Nokia Lumia 928 spotted
The latest leaked rendering of the forthcoming “hero” Windows Phone, said to be coming to Verizon and may be announced sometime this month, shows the Lumia 928 in white.

What is immediately apparent is the speaker grill on the back, rather than the bottom of the device where it is found on the Lumia 920. The rumored xenon flash is present along with an LED. Aside from the cosmetic appearance, the Lumia 928 will share most characteristics of the Lumia 920.

That means a 1280x768 4.5-inch screen, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, and probably the same OIS 8.7MP camera. On board storage is not confirmed, though it will likely be 32GB and probably will not be microSD card expandable.

If you compare this image closely to the leaked rendering from a couple days ago, the only discrepancy we can see is how the xenon flash is situated to the LED. Given @evleaks’ reliability, we chalk that up to “artistic error.” Otherwise, the form factor is notably different. The rear oriented speaker is certainly a contributing factor to the Lumia 928’s rumored thinness compared to the 920. The rounded back plate to the edges will also make the device comfortable to hold in the hand.

iPhone, same design since 2010. If the design is working, why change it.

Who said Apple shouldn't change it? They need too.

They don't need to change it, personally i believe they should, but why spend money (not like Apple can't afford it) redesigning a phone when millions of people will still buy it no matter what it looks like.

But Nokia has not the same image as Apple. They can't do the same thing.

Under the hood, the GS IV is inspiring, but the exterior is still the same old bland design...

i just bought 808 pureview yesterday and my oh my, it really is the ALMOST PERFECT mobile camera ever! it literally blows away my daily driver S3 and my brother's iPhone 4s out of the water in camera capabilities! i cant wish for anything better than Nokia getting into android stream and producing these pureview devices with android! God those would literally destroy samsung, Htc and every other android manufacturer!

Nokia is miles ahead. Even if Sony tried hard I don't think they can come anywhere near to Nokia. Don't go dreaming assuming things. My friend's Xperia Z doesn't have any mindblowing camera abilities.

How come no one knocks Nokia for using pretty much the same design for their phones?
But they knock Apple and Samsung.
Nokia N9, Lumia 800, Lumia 900, Lumia 920, Lumia 928

Because the design is so good. Nah, it is starting to get a bit repeptitive, but this design has only been used for two years Nokia N9 (October 2011) Lumia 928 (2013). I love Nokia's designs so I don't seem to "dislike" this design. Remember the 928 is the 920 for Verizon basically, so they HAVE to keep the 920 design feel to keep it common.

I think they should change the design language soon.

The design isn't the same, just the design language. If you compare this to an n9 their are noticeable differences, similar to if you compare a lumia 920 to an n9. All the the phones from the n9 down have followed the design language of the n8. That's why they all look similar because there hasn't been a drastic change in the design language.

As for Samsung and apple there is little evolution of their design language. From s3 to s4 the only change is a brushed metal rim. The lumia 920 compared to its predecessors is larger, has the earpiece etched in the glass, has the usb and headphone jack in central locations, has a curved body, two speaker grills at the base, darker metal accents on the buttons and camera strip, and a slimmer bezel at the sides and top of the device.

From what I see here this one has tapered sides, a new location for a uniquely shaped speaker grill, as well as a zenon flash.

I think they look the same because they all go with a square polycarbonate unibody look. That's the reason why people immediately said htc copied nokia with the 8x even though it was visually different. HTC only took a page from nokia's design language. Its something that's going to look similar no matter what you do. Take the 822, 820, 520 or 620 for examples. They all have the same design language which makes them look similar, but they are visually different.

Umm ok you forgot to add, S4 has larger 5 inch screen, thinner flat body, less curvy, weighs less, the led flash is positioned under the camera and the speaker is positioned at the bottom left corner and of course a thinner bezel. So if I was a fanboy from another brand, I would have just mentioned nokia 928 as having a curvey body cause it still looks similar to most lumia series.

Not bad, think the speaker grill should be thinner and longer.

This looks like it's going to be another awesome phone model from Nokia. Their designs and build quality top those of most maufacturers out there! However, hardware only accounts for half of the phone. Until the WP8 marketplace is graced with the basic apps that iOS and Andriod users are enjoying, their phones/hardware are destined to fail. Sorry Nokia :(
