After passing through the FCC with the codename RM-877, Nokia EOS is supposed to be the 41-megapixel PureView wonder and to be officially announced on July 11 at the Nokia press event. The smartphone with AT&T-compatible LTE bands would be camera-centric as per the tag line “Zoom Reinvented” of its invites.
However, the new FCC filing has not confirmed about the smartphone to be EOS instead it is listed as RM-877, but clues suggest that it would be the EOS. The entry in the filing clearly indicates that the device has been tested with a camera grip accessory confirming the same to be the EOS.
The FCC filing lists the smartphone to be exclusive for AT&T’s network just like the Lumia 928 for Verizon and the Lumia 925 for T-Mobile. It also reveals some of the features of the smartphone such as accession of quadband GSM and EDGE, dualband Wi-Fi, pentaband HSPA+ and WCDMA, Bluetooth and NFC. The smartphone will be 130.35mm x 71.4mm making it one millimeter taller and wider than the Lumia 925.
Some other features of the Windows Phone 8 device are expected to be a 4.5-inch 768 x 1280 AMOLED ClearBlack Display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 32GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, Xenon flash, LTE radio, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/c/g/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, polycarbonate body and a non-removable 2000 mAh battery.
Wait till Nokia’s event on July 11 to know how exactly it looks like.
Nokia will soon bring out its brand new flagship smartphone, the Lumia 928, on Verizon in just a couple of days. And what everyone is dying to find out is just how much has changed in the new offering in comparison with the Lumia 920. Here’s our take on that, to help you out.
To start with, one of the first and most obvious differences you will come across is in the design. While the Lumia 920 has sharp edges and a blocky look, the Lumia 928 is expected to be sleeker, but with a slightly convex bulge on the back, and almost no bezels.
And then there’s the update to the display. Even though both the Lumia 920 and the Lumia 928 have 4.5-inch screens with 1280X867 pixel resolution, the former has an IPS LCD display while the latter will feature an OLED screen. This would not just help make liven up the colors on the screen, but will also make it more energy efficient.
The Lumia 928 is expected to be slightly taller and thinner than the Lumia 920, but its thickness might go up due to its camera. However, it will be lighter than its predecessor. In terms of camera, both phones have an 8.7 MP offering with Carl Zeiss optics, but the Lumia 928 comes with a better Xenon flash for improved low light photography. However, the BSI sensor in the Lumia 920 will be missing in the Lumia 928. The front-facing camera in the Lumia 928 is expected to have a resolution of 1.2 MP, as opposed to the Lumia 920’s 1.3 MP offering.
Both phones come fitted with a 2,000 mAh battery, but the Lumia 928’s is an Li-polymer battery which promises longer operations without the need to look for a charger. In addition, Nokia has also put in a more powerful speaker in the Lumia 928, as well as a more powerful mic for recording. Unlike the Lumia 920, the Lumia 928 isn’t going to be as colorful and will only come with a black or a white body.
Just a few more days until Nokia finally unveils its brand new flagship, but we’ve already started speculating if it’s worth checking out. Today, we decided to pit its camera against two of the better smartphone cameras out in the market already – that of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and of the Apple iPhone 5? Will the Lumia 928’s camera be a charmer?
On paper, based on what we’ve heard so far, the Lumia 928 sure looks quite well equipped in the camera department. There’s a new video out on YouTube called “The Hurricane” which provides a comparison among the 3 phones’ cameras. Shot on a roller coaster track, it shows sharper and more colorful images being clicked by the new Nokia flagship, thanks to Nokia’s amazing optical stabilization and low-light image capture features.
The Lumia 928 is expected to have an 8.7 MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Nokia’s famous PureView technology. Of course, it’s strange that the video picked the Galaxy S3 to compare with the Lumia 928, instead of the newer Galaxy S4 with its 13 MP camera.
But given Nokia’s past history of uploading fake videos to promote its handsets, we doubt the veracity of “The Hurricane” video’s claims. Why don’t we just wait a little while longer to verify the tall claims for ourselves?… Read the rest
Less than a week for the official launch of the Nokia Lumia 928, but we’ve been impatient as we’re sure you must be. But even before it’s come out, it has featured in a 2-page ad in the Vanity Fair as well as a presence on the Nokia website.
From the ad, what we know so far is that this smartphone is going to have an amazing camera. With Carl Zeiss optics, Nokia’s famed PureView technology, the Lumia 928 can take brilliant photos even in low light conditions, thanks to its Optical Image Stabilization feature.
What we don’t know still is just how powerful the phone’s processor could actually be – we’ve heard that it could be a dual-core processor with 1 GB of RAM. But in the age of quad-core and even 8-core processors, we’re really hoping to see Nokia step up its game.… Read the rest
2013 is turning out to be a stellar year for us gadget lovers, and if you think everything you’ve seen so far has taken your breath away, wait till you see what else is coming up over the next few months. In just a few days, we’ll see Nokia launching its new flagship smartphone, the Lumia 928. But, can it hold its own against the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 that is due to come out later this year?
The Nokia Lumia 928 surely will win in the looks department with its all metal sleek body. The phone is expected to have a 4.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1280X768 pixels, could be powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 processor and 1 GB of RAM, and have 16 GB of internal storage space. Nokia is also expected to fit in an 8.7 MP camera in the Lumia 928, as well as a 2,000 mAh non-removable battery. The specs sound good enough to run Windows Phone 8 quite smoothly.
The Galaxy Note 3, on the other hand, goes big on screen size and power. With a massive 5.99-inch full HD display, an Exynos 5 processor and 3 GB of RAM, its rumored specs make this quite a powerful phablet. It is also expected to have a 13 MP camera and of course the popular S Pen would also be available with the device. So if you’re looking for a device that can help you multitask, we can’t blame you for leaning towards the Galaxy Note 3, but if you’re looking for a decent smartphone, the Lumia 928 could be your pick.… Read the rest
Nokia’s all set to launch its new flagship smartphone, the Lumia 928, on the 14th of May. But when there are so many powerful, fantastic phones in the market already, does it stand a chance at being noticed? Today, we’re pitting the Lumia 928 against LG’s mammoth Optimus G Pro to see how well it could fare.
Nokia Lumia 928: The Nokia Lumia 928 is rumored to have 4.5-inch screen with a resolution of 768X1280 pixels. Within its all metal sleek body is a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage space. Nokia’s also planning to put in an 8.7 MP rear camera with exceptional camera features and a non-removable 2,000 mAh battery. With such specs, we think the Lumia 928 could run Windows Phone 8 quite smoothly.
LG Optimus G Pro: LG’s flagship device has a huge 5.5-inch screen with a gorgeous resolution of 1080X1920 pixels. There’s a powerful quad-core 1.7 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM letting the phone run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with considerable ease. There’s also 32 GB of internal storage space, twice that of the Lumia 928. Even in terms of camera power, its 13 MP rear camera sounds better than the Lumia 928’s. And then there’s the 3,140 mAh battery which promises extraordinary talktime.
The buzz is getting so strong that I can barely wait to get hands on the Nokia Lumia 928. But wait, before I fall in love with the Verizon flagship baby from the Finnish makers, would it be justified to consider if the Apple iPhone 6 would be a better match to my vibrancy and addiction?
With Apple on track to offer us a phablet in form of iPhone 6 and Lumia prepared to illuminate the smartphone world with 928, let us pit these giants against each other to see who emerges victorious .
We have heard that the iPhone 6 could be pumped up with an A7 processor that is in the making. The Lumia 928 will have a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor.
Apple would be seducing with a larger screen this time and its 4.8 inch Sharp IGZO display with a bendable or wraparound tag could beckon us to experiment on something Lumia 928 with its .5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen might fail to offer.
Apple iPhone 6 has got into the shutter game with a promise of 12-MP camera but it is here that Lumia 928 makes us go gaga. An 8.7MP shutter is not a big deal against Apple’s 12 but with f2.0 aperture, Xenon flash with LED in Lytro-style—we could actually be staring at a winner that escalates smartphones to a level never imagined.
The case rests—the final verdict could only be out when we actually get to play with apple iPhone 6 in one hand and Nokia Lumia 928 in the other.… Read the rest
Rumor bell are gonging loud signalling the arrival of the flagship Nokia Lumia 928 on Verizon and yes! we are almost salivating to get our hands on Nokia Lumia 928 . We have seen the Samsung Galaxy S4 and most importantly the HTC One but buzz has it that the Nokia Lumia928 could undercut even the latter, thanks to its stunning features.
The HTC One has already become cynosure of our eyes (no pun) with its gorgeous screen, the superb shutter speed and the compact size. It packs in power couples with comfort—a combo many smartphones miss out on. All said and done, here is a sneak peek into what the Nokia sequel to the sexy Lumia 920 could be like.
The Verizon-exclusive Lumia would have to offer something unique for us to take a notice. Perhaps its promised app companions and the Lytro-style shutter spec would be enough to let us give up HTC One. The Finnish giants have been tossing with the idea of hiking the pixel count to 41-MP (yes-you read it right) with the Lumia flagship line.
Yet we are not too sure if Nokia Lumia 928 could be the model with which Nokia chooses to take a big leap in the smartphone market. ‘Pelican imagined’ feature is may find its way through Lumia 928. Add to this, pre-installed Instagram, Temple Run 2 and Jetpack Joyride (all on Windows 8!). All this makes Nokia Lumia 928 an impressive piece of device.
If these specs actually surface on the Lumia 928, HTC One would indeed be washed out—so would Samsung Galaxy S4! … Read the rest
In just a few days, Nokia will unveil its latest flagship smartphone to the world – the Lumia 928. But as much hype as this event and the device have managed to garner already, does it stand a chance against the Samsung Galaxy S4?
While not much is known about the specs of the Lumia 928, what we do know is that it will have an all metal body and edge-to-edge display. Surely, in terms of first impression, the Lumia 928 will definitely grab more eyeballs than the Galaxy S4. The cheap plastic body doesn’t exactly spell premium, especially when put against a gorgeous and sharp body like what we’re hoping to see in the Lumia 928.
But looks aren’t everything – dig a little deeper and we wonder if the Lumia 928 can work its magic. We doubt if Nokia would put in a powerful processor, at best the Lumia 928 would have a dual-core processor, unlike the Galaxy S4 which comes with either a quad-core processor or an 8-core offering.
And of course, Nokia will put in an amazing camera with Carl Zeiss optics, but we’ve heard that it could have just an 8 MP rear camera. So in terms of resolution, the Galaxy S4’s 13 MP rear camera does score more points. But for a more detailed comparison, guess we’ll just have to wait a little longer.… Read the rest
We seem to be quite an impatient lot – we’re just a couple of weeks away from the Nokia event when the company could possibly launch its latest flagship, the Lumia 928. But we just can’t wait till then! One of the latest rumors going around over the internet is how a Reddit member managed to sneak a look at the Lumia 928.
We’ve all heard how this smartphone would be thinner and lighter than the Lumia 920. And according to the lucky Reddit member, it will surely be so. In addition, the Lumia 928 would have an edge-to-edge screen with no bezels.
The user admits that he found the device to be quite good looking with sharper edges. Now, we just need to see if the Lumia 928 manages to hold its own against the likes of the Galaxy S4, HTC One, Sony Xperia Z, et al.… Read the rest
