The Lumia 928 isn’t the first of Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 handsets to hit Verizon — that distinction goes to the 822 — but for all intents and purposes, it’s the first true flagship Lumia to bear Big Red’s branding. From the jump, you’ll note that Nokia’s bent somewhat to Verizon’s heavy hand, customizing the 928 in a way that shucks the smooth polycarbonate unibody of the 920 for something more hard-edged and angular, yet still plastic. So, what’s so new about this Lumia? Apart from its Xenon flash, nothing at all. It bears the same 4.5-inch, 1,280 x 768 PureMotion HD+ display (now, OLED), 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor with 1GB RAM, 2,000 mAh battery, integrated wireless charging, NFC and 1.2-megapixel front-facing / 8.7-megapixel rear camera setup as the Lumia 920. Naturally, the 928′s made to run on Verizon’s network, so you’ll find support for LTE / CDMA, but there are also radios for HSPA+ making it “global ready.” We’ll have a review for this deviant Lumia coming shortly, but in the meantime follow along for our first impressions.
