166

We told you earlier that we’d do an unboxing and give you our first impressions of Verizon’s new flagship Lumia, the 928. The device is due any day now on the carrier for $99 on contract and while it’s not the sexiest Lumia we’ve handled, as Han Solo once quipped: she has it where it counts, kid.

The Lumia 928 features a stunning 4.5” AMOLED display, the same highend PureView camera as the Lumia 920 but with a bonus Xenon flash, a high quality rear speaker with digital amplifier and a unique design that only Verizon users will get to experience. It’s a Lumia 920 but refined: thinner and easier to handle.

Then we saw the app on display with Nokia during Mobile World Congress. Then we learned we would see it during spring. Since today still counts as spring, they stayed true to their word.

Nokia Lumia 925 image leaked (Updated)

175

@evleaks has built a reputation on providing new device images in advance of the "official" releases. This go around, they have leaked an image of what may be the Nokia Lumia 925, aka "Catwalk".  It's a low-res image but you get a hint of the thinner form factor the Lumia 925 will offer.

The good news is that we won't have long to wait with Nokia's London event just around the corner where we expect the Lumia 925 to be announced. The Lumia 925 is expected to be fairly identical to the Lumia 920 but with a thinner, lighter body and an advanced camera.
