    Lumia 928′s clearer press photos with Front, Back and side views leaked. | Nokiapoweruser

    Side view.. I think this is coming next week for sure.. .more leaks..
    This looks great, thanks. Judging by the placement of the micro-SD on the 720, it doesn't look from these renders that the 928 has one. Still hoping for one.

    I think this is going to be announced at ctia, and it seems that might happen on the 22nd, but Verizon have announced an announcement :-)
    @evleaks has a habit of showing their leaks a few days before announcement and this is test
    feed with the statement that this is the last look the 928...
    also, the top bottom is stop, not shown, but FCC images do not show anything on the bottom, so perhaps the USB and headphone jack and sim card slot will be on top like the catwalk prototype leaks.

    I don't think they will wait that long to announce/release the Lumia 928. It's probably for the S4 as the article mentions.

    I'm hoping for one still as well. Maybe on the top or bottom, or a removable back?

    It's possible there's an mSD slot, but the back doesn't appear removable. There's no indication of one from the renders, even lightened in PS.

    May 22nd seems a little far out but I know they are having some issues with it.

    Not what I wanted to hear, but thanks for the update. Any chance you can tell us what issues they are having?

    For Verizon to send out invitations for a special announcement by the Chief Operating Officer seems a bit much for the release of the Nokia 928. I would think this is something different - maybe a change on their contract plans or network improvement/changes. But then again, what do I know?

    i am going to correct my statement :) The announcement is May 22nd at CTIA - but i wonder if its actually for the S4 - but again, as someone has said, seems a little over the top for a product announcement - but you never know.
    Now., if the S4 is going to be released end of may, then 928 needs to be released before then to have a chance of being seen by joe public, or else it will be trampled by the media hype around the S4.

    I'd be curious to see what "they are having some issues with it" means when referring to the 928....hopefully minor ones so that it can be rectified and back on the path of being released SOON :)

    is it just me or does the white look NICER than the black did? :)

    Also - notice that the black/white images leaked today by @evleaks have a completely different homescreen til layout and the red even looks darker?

    They're just minor issues like getting visual voicemail to not be the most awful thing ever, etc. etc. Stuff that isn't really the phone's fault, but they want fixed on VZW's end before it launches.

    As for May 22nd, I haven't received any official word but I believe it will be our plans to uncarrier ourselves.

    I have a theory. I think these back shells will be interchangeable as they are with the 810/820. If you look at the images that have been released, there is no hardware element that disproves this. As far as I know, no top images have revealed a sim or SD door. The seam along the 928 looks just like my 810. There's really no reason to have that tiny black bezel as far as I can tell if it's a PC unibody. This, of course, opens the possibility of sd and replaceable battery. Again, just a theory.

    I also think the back is removable since it looks like the same back as the 810

    I love new phones as much as anyone. I have had the 822 and now the 8x. I just can't imagine why anyone on Verizon, that already has one of the other WP's, would upgrade to this. A slightly larger screen, better camera and that is about it, as far as an upgrade???? Sure, someone new to WP on Verizon might pick this up, but compared to the 822 and 8X, it's not really an upgrade. And yes, I could easily get this phone on my business account, but have no desire.

    well for a lot of people it is just the 822 vs the 928 because they want the nokia support (apps and updates).

    although I agree its not a huge stepup, in comparison to the 822, you get a bigger screen, HD screen, best smartphone camera, wireless charging included (?), the most updated nokia software (822 has a thread about being a little buggy.. random restarts, freezes, etc).

    although I will say if 928 is >= $100 and 822 is still free, im going to have a tough choice of which phone to get.

    EDIT: I see you said upgrade from 822 or 8x.. yeah I don't know why someone would do that.. unless you just got money in da bank

    Do you not remember the furor when the Verizon customers realized that they wouldn't be getting the 920? This is our chance to finally get it. Just the camera alone makes it worth it. That combined with the fact that this is a damn sexy phone will be very tempting!

    I'm just saying, I can't see anyone that already has a WP on Verizon getting the 928, unless your like me and have money in da bank, hahaha (no, I manage a business account and have various upgrades available on different lines). If it helps increase WP market share on Verizon, awesome. And yes, it's a good looking phone, but the 8X is SEXY. lol

    From the 822 the 928 would be a big step up. Not so much for the 8X, but the 928 still has a better screen and camera. That is why I'm interested in going from my 8X to the 928, plus the possibility of more storage. I'm a bit nervous about Nokia quality after owning the 822 though. If HTC would release a version of the One running WP8 I would choose that over the 928.
