There has been a lot of mystery surrounding the impending release of the Nokia Lumia 928, but according to possibly the most concrete report so far, the handset has been confirmed for a release on the Verizon Wireless network.
Though there had been plenty of rumblings in the past about the Windows Phone 8-powered Lumia 928 coming to Verizon, there were also talks about a T-Mobile release. Until now, it was unknown by which network it would be offered, if not both.
Now an anonymous source has informed Bloomberg that the Lumia 928 — which is expected to be a slightly updated version of the Lumia 920 — will be the first flagship Lumia “to be sold exclusively by Verizon.” Also confirmed is the fact that it will sport an aluminum body, which was previously rumored but then thrown into doubt after reliable source @evleaks posted pictures of the device on Twitter showing a non-metal build.
Though it has yet to receive an official announcement from either Verizon or Nokia, the Lumia 928 will supposedly sport most of the same specs as its predecessor, with the anonymous source confirming that it will have a 4.5-inch display and an 8-megapixel camera.
