Nokia Lumia 928 teased ahead of official debut

Nokia has an upcoming event on May 14th that will introduce us to a new device in its line of Windows Phones, and it looks like it’s going to be the Lumia 928. The company has put up a teaser page of the device a week ahead of the event, giving us a vague idea of what to expect. There doesn’t appear to be anything radically different in terms of design, but an advert snapped in the latest issue of Vanity Fair does hint at the phone’s features.

Engadget has a photo of the advert, which is almost the same as what Nokia is currently showing on its website. The blurb underneath the device, however, points to yet another phone with Nokia’s PureView technology, as well as Optical Image Stabilisation. It looks like this device may be a refresh of the Lumia 920 after all.

Previous leaks suggested that we might see an aluminium clad Lumia, dubbed Catwalk, but the teaser images don’t seem to support that so far. Information obtained by The Verge last month indicated that Nokia wouldn’t be making the jump to aluminium for this particular handset, instead opting to use it on future devices. The Lumia 928 is believed to use a slightly thinner polycarbonate build as opposed to aluminium.

The device also reportedly comes with a 4.5-inch OLED display. Otherwise, specifications are said to be near identical to the Lumia 920, which includes a 1.5Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. All signs point to this being a Verizon device in the United States, but it’s not yet clear if the phone will see an international release. We’ll find out more at Nokia’s event in London on May 14th.
