    it will be a slightly slimmer, slightly lighter aluminum 920 with MAYBE a 12mp camera. That is all
    That is what I am hoping for so it will be a day 1 purchase for me. Thanks! I just hope that is enough to make it a strong presence on Verizon.

    Not sure it's a good idea for me to post the pic here, but I have a buddy who works as an RF Engineer for Verizon in Chicago. He posted a picture on Facebook of him and other Engineers in a meeting, and one of the Engineers has a white Lumia 928 in his hand (I assume it is, it looks very similar to the 920, but of course Verizon doesn't have that).

    I can't wait.

    Any idea on the MicroSD thing ? This will be the deciding factor for me, No MicroSD, I wait till 8.5/9 devices, yes, I buy posably on day one off contract...

    Not willing to give up my unlimited data....(6 years out of contract still have a New every 2 $100 credit on my account)

    Would you be willing to send me a PM or email it to me ? (My user name @ hotmail.com) I just want to see what this dam thing looks like right now...

    It's not a close look at it. The guy holding it is sitting across the table. Don't want anyone getting fired for "leaking" pics.

    Don't post it, not worth it :)

    Now if they have a picture with the phone by itself, that is a different story.

    Come on. Nokia never makes devices that are similar looking to each other!

    I just wish they would announce something already. Not that I'm not up for renewal till June 20 anyway, but still.... inquiring minds want to know.

    I'm really doubting ill have my hands on this device this month. Verizon is losing my interest really, If Sprint officially announces a WP8 device before the "928" is announced i probably wont switch.

    This page has been a bit mixed bag.
    So does it have N9/Lumaa800/Lumia 920 design or aluminium design? If it follows the aluminium build you would expect the design change. We would not see the deep colors and the poly design doesn't make much sense if you are making the phone from aluminium.

    12MP camera and aluminium build would be way more than i have expected, Still waiting it to be exact Lumia 920 copy.

    I think the current matte finish design is the best thing that ever came out of the head of their design team. The only problem with 920 is its thinkness (not size). So for 928, if they can keep the same specs and may it thicker it will be just great. Now, every other improvement is welcome (e.g. even better camera) but personally I believe they will keep the camera upgrade for their next flagship phone (940 or 950) when we will probably have Windows Phone GR2 Update (or as I believe WP8.1) with a new processor (probably a dual core Snapdragon 800 as I believe it will be next CPU chip to be supported by WP).

    The suspense is driving me crazy. I read these boards daily just hoping for some new info. Our Verizon sources are pretty certain that this will be slightly thinner and lighter than the 920. That in addition to the aluminum body and possible 12 mp camera make the 928 the best phone on the market in my humble opinion! I cant get mine soon enough.

    I really hope it doesn't have a 12MP camera - that's such a step in the wrong direction. Low light and image quality will suffer yet again at the hands of the marketers that just don't know when to stop beating a dead horse.

    It's driving me crazy too, Something has to leak on this....SOON ! I am one who knows that MP is just a number, it's a image size but, means nothing when it comes to quality of images. If they use the same tech as the 920 but, make it better to give a 12mp rating, I'm ok with it. If it's better than the 920, then it will be the best camera phone ever to date. For Nokia to make a high end phone with a 12mp, I am sure we wont be disapointed, as for phone camera tech, Nokia is the best.

    This will blow your mind a little but, think about it. This phone is scheduled for a release this month sometime, according to all the rumors. Know what that means ? Someplace in the world, there is a bunch of pallets loaded with the Lumia 928 in brand new boxes ready to ship. There are hundreds if not thousands of them waiting to ship, if not already in Verizon's warehouses....<mind blown>

    And we still dont know anything about this phone yet...ugh

    This kind of thinking can be applied on so many levels in so many other fields.

    The other thing is that with Just In Time processes and capabilities, this may NOT always be the case. Some industries only keep 24 hours worth of materials on hand to reduce the amount of storage space on the production site. Space=money.

    No I'm in IT, but, been following this type of stuff for years and even with Video games it's the same thing. If you think about it, unless there is going to be a big delay and a later release (we have no proof that the phone is even real right now besides rumor and a phone that passed through the FCC), they would be making them if not already shipping them to the carriers now. they would have to be if it was a planned release for this month sometime...

    Right but, knowing a company like Verizon, they would keep them in a warehouse to pass them to the stores as needed or for release. If Verizon does not have them, they will have them soon. The thing is, Nokia has them built, in boxes ready to go by now as they could never make a release of this month if they were not.

    This still does not solve the problem or answer any questions, What is this phone ? What is it's true specs ? and WHEN will it be released ?

    Nokia N8 (12MP) and 808 PureView (41MP) take better pictures than Lumia 920.

    You can't really say anything out of MP count alone, positive or negative. Sure, 2MP is probably not sufficient enough for the size of PC monitors we are watching these pics, but other than that.

    True, though it being only manufactured for Verizon could be part of the reason for no leaks. Actually i'm pretty sure that is the reason.

    Why am I thinking about a crowdsourced movement along the lines of "Free the 928's!!!" that would brak them out of their warehouse prisons? ;-)

    You're right, but both of those phones have larger sensors afforded by a fat form factor. The 928 is supposedly even thinner than the 920, so I'm not getting my hopes up for a major breakthrough in sensor tech for it. I'm thinking the sensor will just be the same size but packed more densely with pixels, which makes for worse results. Maybe the processing will be better on the back-end which will help clean up the noise this is going to introduce, but think of what they could do if they didn't have to keep upping the MP count just to put a bigger number on the box.
