    I like it! it copied the 8x design but then again, the htc copied nokia in the first place
    Err.. no.

    HTC ripped off the Lankku design language, which was first shown on the Nokia N9 back in June of 2011. All the other Nokia phones that came from it were: 800, 900, 920.. and one HTC 8x.

    So, this is based on Nokia's own design, nothing to do with the 8x at all.

    Yes, but because the N9 didn't get much media coverage, few people would know..

    The Lankku design won several design awards, including the prestigious D&AD Yellow Pencil design award

    Professional Awards

    Most of the Lumias are all based on that design. You can't really blame HTC for taking a close look at it... if you are going to do that, you copy from the best. It took them a while, but they got it.

    I am not saying the 8X is identical, but the fundamental design is obviously Lankku inspired. Even the machined holes for the speakers... the N9 had them first, now HTC are using them quite a bit.. also Apple with the iPhone 5.

    Nokia's investment in that design was significant.. and, back then I didn't realize it, but they were planning a whole range based on it.



    and this is.. porn for any phone lover :)

    Interesting...The mockups make sense if the images from the fcc and the image from evleaks are really the same device.

    evleaks have never been wrong when it comes to a Nokia device so far, at least that I remember. So.. ya, that's it.. or very close to it.

    agreed on the evleaks ...leak :) that twitter account has been reliable on the leaks.
    I think what someone was saying when they mentioned "fake" up above, was that the image of the lady holding that white device with the camera in the corner...which is not the same as the evleaks render.
    So the question remains - what was that?

    Also, I am still having a tough time seeing the flat sides that were shown in the FCC filing, in the evleaks render. Am i missing something here?
    The drawings for FCC have to be pretty accurate as they are official filings...

    @paulo1300 thanks for telling about the Lumia 928 renders by PhoneDesigner on FB... i saw his page last week linked from other sites... he does some AMAZING work... Nokia should be hiring this guy right now...
    Still not sure about the straight edges... the FB renders have them incorporated and it looks great, but the evleaks render dont seem to show it...hard to tell.

    yes i agree, it does not show the straight edges in the press shot at all.
    It definitely seems like Phone Designer made these based upon the Press Shot and the FCC filing. It is basically a combination of the two. The front and back look like the press shot, but the edges look like the FCC filing. I am thinking the actual phone will look pretty similar to those pictures.

    yep, if you look at the Lumia 920 filing for the same end on shot and compare it to the 928, they are significantly different in profile.
    I quite liked the 920 feel and i think i will like the 928 too :)

    Something i just noticed, the 920 shot is of the top of the phone, but the 928 is of the bottom...but where is the space for the USB connection on the 928?

    dont know where it could be... i had *thought* that the USB connection was pretty much standardized to be on the bottom....with the 3.5mm audio jack centralized on the top... but the FB renders show that the audio jack placed on the top, justified to the right...

    phone designer on facebook has posted some photo's of what he thinks the 928 will look like.. either that, or nokia hired him after seeing his previous work because he had these renders out within 12 hours of evleaks post

    NOTE: I am not saying these are leaks. This guy makes renders of windows phones all the time. Just thought it was interesting to look at.
    God I hope the phone ends up looking like this. That would be awesome.

    FB renders are just guesses by the designer....notice the USB on the bottom which isn't consistent with the sketches above.

    agreed - renders are just that, for now.
    FCC drawings are official.

    I wonder how evleaks receives these images. I wish they could show the front and side of the device.

    OK , im going to be really picky :)
    The black render from @evleaks shows a couple of differences to the white render they leaked today...
    1. there appears to be a little gap between the xenon flash and the LED lamp (dont know if thats supposed to be a focus assist lamp only or double also as a video lamp a la 808 Pureview)
    2. The speaker holes are different :) look at the right/left side of the speaker holes and you will see a difference:) I prefer the white version of the holes:)

    So I've got a few new tidbits for this phone. Unfortunately they're not too exciting. It is essentially a redesigned 920 with a Xenon flash. The colors are still black, white, red and cyan. The cyan 822 is expected to launch with the cyan 928.

    I know it's a popular question, but any estimate of launch date? With the evleaks leaks, I'd guess pretty soon...

    thanks for the info you provide.

    going by @Honestabebread's previous comments... he said he would get to know about (see) the device a week or so before it was announced... so that means next week? :)
    Thanks to him for all the info he an Mr Mcphisto have provided...

    .. let's hope its the same system as the one on the 808, it works very well. This would be only the second phone that has both an LED and a Xenon flash..

    I'm so ready for this. The 8X didn't cut it due to storage, the 822 due to screen res. This looks to fit my needs. It just needs to come out.
