Nokia has tied up with Verizon Wireless to launch its Lumia 928 smartphone in US, which is a variation of the Finnish phone maker’s flagship smartphone. As expected, the Lumia 928 appears to be very similar to the flagship Lumia 920 of Nokia, which is doing fairly well all over the world. The Lumia 928 is specially designed and optimized for the largest 4G LTE network of Verizon Wireless.
Nokia Lumia 928 sports a 4.5-inch OLED HD screen, 8.7-megapixel camera featuring a high-quality, wide angle Carl Zeiss lens, and comes with Nokia’s PureView technology, which is supposed to help fix blurry pictures and video and take high-quality shots in low light. A key difference between the Lumia 928 and the Lumia 920 is that the new device also features a xenon flash. The Nokia Lumia 928 comes with powerful Xenon flash.
The Lumia 928 also includes wireless charging, like Lumia 920, which means the user can lay the phone on a charging pad and the device begin recharging without the use of a USB cable.
In addition to amazing imaging and video capabilities, the Nokia Lumia 928 offers rich distortion-free audio capture, even in noisy conditions. Built with three high-audio-amplitude-capture (HAAC) microphones and one of the most advanced loudspeakers available for smartphones, people can record and play back the sound just like they first heard it, all the way up to 140db – the sound equivalent of an airplane taking off.
The Nokia Lumia 928 includes access to signature Lumia apps including the complete set of the feature-rich, intuitive and customizable HERE experiences. HERE Maps, HERE Drive+, HERE Transit and HERE City Lens help people navigate their life every day. Using Nokia Music with Mix Radio, people can enjoy unlimited streaming of free music playlists with the option to create personal playlists and download for listening offline. Digital camera lenses and apps, including Smart Shoot, Cinemagraph, Panorama, and Photobeamer, enable people to unleash their creativity.
The Nokia Lumia 928 is powered by W indows 8 phone OS. The Windows Phone Store features more than 145,000 apps for customers to choose from, with hundreds added every day. Getting things done while on-the-go is easy with Internet Explorer 10 for faster, safer browsing and Microsoft Office Mobile integration.
