Introducing the Nokia Lumia 928 - a new expression of the world's most
Exclusive to Verizon Wireless, newest Nokia Lumia flagship smartphone
delivers amazing imaging, video and audio performance to capture and
share moments like never before
Sunnyvale, Calif., USA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/10/13 -- Nokia today
announced the Nokia Lumia 928 smartphone, the latest installment in
Nokia's Windows Phone 8 lineup, exclusive to Verizon Wireless.
With Nokia's award-winning PureView imaging innovation, including
optical image stabilization, the Nokia Lumia 928 enables people to
capture bright, blur-free photos and videos, even in low light
conditions such as indoors or at night. Great looking images come
easily when snapping them with the smartphone's 8.7MP camera
featuring a high-quality, wide angle Carl Zeiss lens. The Nokia Lumia
928 also comes with powerful Xenon flash to freeze the moment.
In addition to amazing imaging and video capabilities, the Nokia
Lumia 928 offers rich distortion-free audio capture, even in noisy
conditions. Built with three high-audio-amplitude-capture (HAAC)
microphones and one of the most advanced loudspeakers available for
smartphones, people can record and play back the sound just like they
first heard it, all the way up to 140db - the sound equivalent of an
airplane taking off. These features shine when using Vyclone, a new
app for Windows Phone that lets people co-create, sync and edit
multiple views of a shared moment.
"Whether you're attending a party, a concert or a sporting event with
friends, the Nokia Lumia 928 excels at capturing high-quality video,
audio and blur-free photos of life's most share-worthy moments," said
Matt Rothschild, vice president, Nokia North America. "Verizon
Wireless customers, we heard you and the wait is over - we're excited
to offer a Nokia flagship smartphone, specially designed and
optimized for the nation's largest 4G LTE network."
At first touch, the Lumia 928 feels sleek, solid and fits perfectly
in the hand. The stunning new smartphone introduces a 4.5" OLED
display delivering crystal clear, bright content with great outdoor
visibility and a fast, responsive touch-screen even when your
fingertips are covered up. The glass extends to the very edge of the
phone for a high-end feel.
The Nokia Lumia 928 includes access to signature Lumia apps including
the complete set of the feature-rich, intuitive and customizable HERE
experiences. HERE Maps, HERE Drive+, HERE Transit** and HERE City
Lens help people navigate their life every day. Using Nokia Music
with Mix Radio, people can enjoy unlimited streaming of free music
playlists with the option to create personal playlists and download
for listening offline. Digital camera lenses and apps, including
Smart Shoot, Cinemagraph, Panorama, and Photobeamer**, enable people
to unleash their creativity.
