After weeks of leaks and teasers, the Nokia Lumia 928 for Verizon is now official. In a post on Nokia Conversations, Nokia has detailed its latest Lumia device, and announced that it will be available on May 16th at VerizonWireless.com and Verizon Wireless Stores across the US. Further, for a limited time buyers will also received a $25 credit for Windows Phone apps and games with the purchase of the phone.
The Lumia 928 builds on the 920, but is slightly more squared than its elder sibling and also manages to pack 8.7 MP camera with a Xenon flash while remaining relatively thin. There’s wireless charging, a 4.5″ display, three high-audio-amplitude-capture microphones to give you great audio recording capabilities. There’s also a built in LED light for use during video capture.
The Lumia 928 will be available in Black and White for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate with a two year contract. Nokia also claims that the Lumia 928 will have one of the most advanced speakers, and after the HTC One, its good to see Nokia pay attention to this aspect of the phone as well.
