Nokia Lumia 928 smartphone
Nokia announced the Nokia Lumia 928 smartphone, the latest installment in Nokia's Windows Phone 8 lineup, exclusive to Verizon Wireless. With Nokia's award-winning PureView imaging innovation, including optical image stabilization, the Nokia Lumia 928 enables people to capture bright, blur-free photos and videos, even in low light conditions such as indoors or at night. Great looking images come easily when snapping them with the smartphone's 8.7MP camera featuring a high-quality, wide angle Carl Zeiss lens. The Nokia Lumia 928 Windows smartphone also comes with powerful Xenon flash to freeze the moment.
Nokia Lumia 928 features
In addition to amazing imaging and video capabilities, the Nokia Lumia 928 smartphone 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. These features shine when using Vyclone, a new app for Windows Phone that lets people co-create, sync and edit multiple views of a shared moment.
4.5" OLED display
At first touch, the Nokia Lumia 928 feels sleek, solid and fits perfectly in the hand.

The glass extends to the very edge of the phone for a high-end feel. The Nokia Lumia 928 smart phone also comes with built-in wireless charging; just lay it down to power-up, it's that easy.
