Although we have no idea what it actually looks like, the Lumia 928 and its camera are sure getting a work out. Yesterday we saw numerous photos leak that were taken with the 8.7MP camera (and even front-facing one) and today from the same source we evidently have more.
We say evidently because some of these photos are missing EXIF information, the crucial data that is embedded in each photo, often revealing the device name, lens, f-stop, etc.; having said that it’s clear that these photos are from the same day as the previously verified photos, so it’s a safe assumption that this is part of a set.
For those curious, the pics come via a private blog that is not open to the public. Ironically though (and much like a Facebook exploit) photos evidently are visible and were pulled by the site Nokia Power User.
At this point we can’t make too much of these photos as we don’t have controls to compare it to and we’re maybe dealing with pre-release software. Likewise, photos taken on bright sunny days generally always look good and these are no different.
Hopefully we’ll have more than just camera samples from the Verizon Lumia 928 in the coming days. The phone is expected to launch sometime next month on the carrier, bringing with it the first serious competition to AT&T and its dominance on Windows Phone.
