I’d love to have the sources The Verge has – my sources are great by the way, they’re just more discrete about stuff. Here’s what The Verge has today about an upcoming Nokia Lumia 928, coming in April this year on Verizon (and I quote from their article)
“Microsoft is gearing up to market Nokia’s upcoming Verizon flagship heavily. Sources familiar with Nokia’s plans have revealed to The Verge that the company plans to launch its Lumia 928 handset in April on Verizon. Known previously as Laser, the Lumia 920 variant will include some significant changes that make it a new standalone device. We’re told that Nokia will switch to aluminum for the 928, with a xenon and LED flash combination for the 8-megapixel PureView camera.
Nokia’s new flagship will also reduce the weight and thickness compared to the Lumia 920. We’re told the Lumia 928 is 10.2mm at its thinnest point with a slightly curved back. The Lumia 928 has a squared look that’s similar to the Lumia 720 and is said to feel a lot lighter than the Lumia 920. Other specifications, including CPU and RAM, will be identical to the Lumia 920. The 928 will also launch with a 4.5-inch OLED display and support for simultaneous voice and LTE (SVLTE) — other Verizon devices support SVLTE, but the iPhone 5 notably does not.”
That’s all I know. Important parts of this post are of course the combination of a Xenon and LED flash (like in the Nokia 808 PureView) and a 8MP “PureView camera.
The most important question is: what kind of PureView this time? Certainly no oversampling (the sensor would be too small) and no OIS (the device would be to small). So dear club members: what is it? Any ideas? Graphene already? I don’t think so.
