More leaked shots allegedly taken with the Lumia 928, shows off front camera

Lumia 928 Leak

In the wise words of the Internet: "OH HAI DER LUMIA 928!" A handful of leaked images have been spotted over on Androidsym, which has published a number of shots that were taken with the Nokia Windows Phone. Exif information for each photo (excluding the above) reportedly shows the Lumia 928, and follows up on the leaked image from a Nokia employee we looked at a few days ago.

Fancy a close-up on the white handset in the above mirror shot? We thought you'd never ask.

Lumia 928 Zoom

Now, while it does follow the similar design we've seen already, that doesn't look exactly like a Lumia 920 to us (or any released Windows Phone for that matter). Notice the somewhat-black element on the top-left hand corner? That's something new and worthy of some speculation as to what it could be. The device almost looks like a Lumia 920 and Lumia 720 got together and started a family.

Here's another shot that was also taken using the front-facing camera on the smartphone (check her shades for the reflection - it's a black screen with a slight white border):

Lumia 928

There's still a lack of information when it comes to the Lumia 928. That said, we now know how both cameras perform in daylight, especially with the shots that were found on Flickr the other day. So, what do you all think?

Love it. With photo quality like that, I could open a porn studio.

jonchai says:

When your hand shakes, your videos don't

PSRBF6 says:

That will exceed the Pure view OIS systems effective operation threshold

vijax21 says:

Well.. I'll keep my 920 for next 2 years.. Can't just keep buying..

Whodaboss says:

Just bring a top flight phone to T-Mobile. Now that would be great.

abond32 says:

Tell tmobile that, to stop investing in bull shit phones.

WilliamC1972 says:

I agree with you there. I'm with T Mobile and we've been left in the cold!!!!

mrshamoozoo says:

thats why i left t-mobile for at&t. needed that 920 

Ordeith says:

"We" as in Windows Phone users.
T-Mobile looks to be getting the iPhone 5s, the Galaxy S4, and the Blackberry Z10.  All flagships of their respective operating system.
T-Mobile only looks to be against Windows Phone at the moment.  Which is odd considering the Lumia 710 made them a lot of money.

jgbstetson says:

I think a high end Lumia has been spotted on tmo networks. Some have reported that catwalk is coming. We'll see.

tbonenga says:

Hopefully soon. If Verizon was able to pry Nokia's tongue outta At&t's Fart Box to get the 928 Tmo might have a chance.

arterbizzle says:

Yea I've heard 920 variant this summer, I'm crossing my fingers

B_RAD89 says:

Do yall think this gets released before the Samsung Galaxy S4 or after? Seems as though it would be best to release this before to gobble up potential S4 customers

I thought they were releasing on Verizon simultaneously.

TechAbstract says:

First pic is too blurry...

btbam91 says:

It's a reflection shot...

mukulvdhiman says:

Hmm.. I hope somebody does'nt lose their job n its just nokia who's been telling them to upload..

baileystein says:

They probably won't care. Its actually good for Nokia that this leaks because then they'll have more people interested.

juan6996 says:

WMPoweruser brought up the point that due to the "marketing-like" nature of the photos, with the family and vacation theme, Nokia most likely leaked them on purpose. Maybe to steer SGS4 costumers away.

WinFan1 says:

Lol costumers. I think you mean customer. Costumers are people dressed up in costumes lol.

smontoya2 says:

FFC shot looks great. I want this like yesteryear.

JoRdaNeK says:

I thought L928 was a slight variant for the US carrier Verizon? Is it a whole new phone?

jlynnm350z says:

Yes, an entirely new phone. The 928 is made out of meteorites for strength and a 646 megapixel camera. It also can wash your car and do your chores. Its quite the phone.

Neo Nuke says:

It can also brew beer and comes with a fitness element superior to the galaxy S4, it not only checks temperature, humidity, steps taken, calories burned, but also does bench reps, situps, pushups, and yoga for you resulting in a ripped, happier, better person all around . That's the power of the Lumia.

Rich Edmonds says:

As well as this, there will be a firmware update that introduces intergalactic flight and full alien language translation with the HERE There app, which is slated to be released sometime next year ;-)

Duke178 says:

Wicked thats what all phones should be like, we pay enough for them. :-)

jlynnm350z says:

Can't tell anything from those videos.

thirdday2002 says:

That's because they're pictures.

jlynnm350z says:

My phone automatically converts pictures into videos because I can't read.

Viipottaja says:

Jup, reading pictures can be hard.

Nickkk101 says:

who are the people in the picture? and why have they got the phone in the first place? 

jlynnm350z says:

Yeah, why are they more special than everyone else.

tcman88 says:

Looks just like 920?

bbqrooster says:

Yeah, it's rectangular.

PolishHitta says:

It looks squareish on top and bottom somewhat like the iPhone.

RPGX400 says:

Somebody call the lawers!!

dinod says:

Sweet, now get it in the stores!! What did @thurrott say ... "shut up & ship!" ?

gibbyhome says:

this this is the 928 I thought it was a Verizon Phone ? so they would be in the US ? but they don't look like they are ...
or are they ...
I hope this is true to be on verizon, I went to the verizon store the other day and said when is the 928 going on sale, they guy freaked out and said ANOTHER Nokia phone ?? and starting googleing it and when I left he was still looking up the phone on the internet saying wow this is kewl.
Man If I worked at a cell phone place I would know when any mention of a phone was coming out and do my home work...

frozen11 says:

i agree,.. looks like an asian family.. perpahs Philippines..

Candide yams says:

Psst...Asians live in the United States too. Lots actually. Millions even.

50000 says:

And they are at a Disneyland. Or their house is super fooking cool.

NJ Ismael says:

racist??? hope not...:)

bbqrooster says:

Why? Just because someone mentions Asian?

JacksonSQD says:

Of course not, he was just stating his perceptions. And I can agree. The kid sure as hell doesn't look caucasian. :P - needless to say, neither do the (supposed) parents.

Candide yams says:

I just found the Phillippines comment off. The family in the photograph could very well be Verizon employees testing the phone at Disneyland. There's no way to know where in the world those people are. however, most likely they're in the US (since as far as we know the 928 is US-only).

Ordeith says:

That's not Disneyland. A Universal or Six Flags park maybe, but it doesn't even look to be up to those standards.
EDIT:  Looks like Sea World from the next photo set.

Agent-P says:

I really hope this comes to T-Mobile US even though rumours only talk about Verizon. The only reason I didn't get a Lumia 920 was because it didn't come to T-Mobile.

gibbyhome says:

Is it Tmoblie or is it Nokia that decides what phones a cararier gets ? I think this is a Tmobile deal,
I Have no idea why the Nokia 620 or the new 520 are not going on carriers like MetroPCS or Cricket ? all they sell for 200 dollars are such junk Android phones, they would sell the 620 like crazy for that price.
MetroPCS is so far up androids but right know they need to be slapped.

Aha... One more Lumia so complex that Nokia will have its software fully debugged by the time no one remembers the device ever existed... How about a nice looking device with a great 5 inch display, a 13mp camera, microSD slot and that does in fact work... No image stabilization or other cause of problems. Like ie. a 8X or Ativ S... That works you know... With a removable battery and light enough not to be considered as a Soviet made piece of equipment...

I know you love your Ativ, but this is pure hyperbole on your part. You should add to the sarcasm thread above. Not everyone needs a huge display.

Ovidiuag7 says:

guys this is no aluminium, it's polycarbonate, yes it sports a xenon flash becouse of the longer camera spot and that black thing on the corner is so that you can recognise it as a prototype... relax!! ONLY catwalk and eos will be alluminium


L = Ludicrously complex
U = Usefulness doubtful
M = Mediocre quality
I = Imaging blurred
A = Archaic technology

What will the next Nokia line be called... Phantasia... Phantasma...

Nokia better concentrate on QC and Quality, not on features! Samsung and HTC are waiting around the corner and can make decent, reliable WP8 devices... With less features, but they work.

Munkeyphyst says:

Look out! We got a troll over here...

Don't upset the troll.

gandhule says:


procen says:

Pathetic Troll!

L =  Legendary quality
U = Universally respected
M = Modern smartphone
I   = Intuitive + Integrated
A  = Artistic

Nice thank you.

Los says:

Let's try M = Modern UI. Lol

cybermoose89 says:

I hope the 928 has specs that will knock the shit outta android!!

I just hope this bad boy will put the new GS4 on a run for its money!

All I know is that I'm getting this god damn phone in Cyan.  Samsung can suck it.  Apple can suck it.  Blackberry can party with me because I'm getting the Z10 too.

jmunchies1 says:

Come on VZW don't drop the ball on this baby.

jfa1 says:

Its up to tmo and vzn to get Nokia to do their thing. Ie give Nokia the money

jabtano says:

Look we know that the camera is going to take great photos. The really great thing in all of this ,is that another carrier is going to sport a high end Lumia. T-MO NEXT.

Paulo1300 says:

at first i was thinking the phone was really long.. then i realized that the mirror is stretching it

stephen_az says:

....and again, exif data can be faked in the time it takes to write this message (actually less). This is not news, it is simply a rumor supported by easily falsified camera data. This should be labelled as a rumor and nothing more.

You're a rumor as far as I'm concerned.

Jsaint82 says:

Through it's advance NFC technology the Lumia 928 can control the minds of lesser beings.

Jazmac says:

Those pics look good to me.

TechAbstract says:

Nokia is horrible at marketing. Samsung and Apple's TV commercials are much better at advertising what their phones can do.

zephyrwala says:

Ita just a 920 variant :| what's the fuss about ???

sdreamer says:

See how the 822 looks pretty radically different from all the other 820 variants, without too many differences, aside from having wireless charging built in, I imagine that Verizon is just going to get the 920 but almost different looking from the 920, maybe with a different body material. I wouldn't expect too much of a difference in terms of camera quality though.

rightisray says:

822 owner here and there is definitely no built in wireless charging. It's the same as the 820.

creip says:

The Lumia 928 is a controlled leak if I ever saw one.

cybermoose89 says:

Phone teasing buggers! Lol

What if these pics are from 920 only. I mean, meta data could be changed!!!!
That would be another big troll ;) lol

Candide yams says:

The photos were allegedly taken at Sea World San Diego. Gives more credibility to the people in the photo potentially being Verizon employees who are "testing" the phone in the real world. More than likely it's a planned leak by Nokia and Verizon to get us excited for the phone.

hopmedic says:

I agree with this, though I question their methods.  Those of us who are eating up these leaks are a pretty small number.  They should be pushing it in bigger ways.

paulxxwall says:

I ran metropcs out of my stereo shop metro gets cheap phones sum high end but that's not there market .high end phones are expensive no contracts service doesn't compare to att Verizon or sprint I did the math leaving metro for att I bought Lumia 920 it all adds up same just little more but I have 10 meg internet metro was around 3or4 meg tethering etc metro won't see Lumia phones for a while al though I do remember windows mobile Samsung code.......didn't sell well

hopmedic says:

I had to read this three times to figure out what you were saying.  If you run a stereo shop, I hope your business skills are better than your written communications skills.
