Not too long ago we reported on the rumored Nokia Lumia 928, which is believed to be the Verizon variant of the Lumia 920. Now we get a few new details about changed features, including the inclusion of an aluminum shell instead of a poly-carbonate one.
The idea of an aluminum variant of the Lumia 920 is nothing new either, as the idea goes back a ways, when the aluminum version was referred to as ‘Catwalk’. Now new sources reporting first to the Verge indicate the Lumia 928 will be 102.mm thick and lighter than the original 920, though its shape will largely stay the same.
Outside of the fancy new clothes, the Lumia 928 is also believed to possibly be getting an improved camera, with a new unit that is believed to combine LED and Xenon lights.
As far as the rest of the hardware, it sounds like there won’t be much different if anything. That means you can likely expect the Nokia Lumia 928 to pack a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
If Verizon really is getting its own slightly-improved version of the Lumia 920, are you interested or do you feel that the phone just isn’t as exciting now that it has been many months since it first launched on AT&T?[ source ]
