Nokia Lumia 928 outed in Vanity Fair ad

The magazine ad touts Nokia's PureView camera technology. A photo of the device has also popped up on Nokia's Web site.

The long-rumored Nokia Lumia 928 Windows Phone-based handset is real, and it's heading to Verizon.

Engadget on Tuesday posted an image of an ad for the Lumia 928 in the latest issue of Vanity Fair magazine. The ad shows a device being held in a person's hand as he or she captures a photo or video of a family at the beach. Verizon's logo, along with the Nokia logo, sit just above the screen.

The ad copy isn't completely legible in the Engadget photo, but clearly is promoting Nokia's PureView camera technology , the camera's Carl Zeiss optics, and its ability to capture images "even in low light."

In the Vanity Fair ad, the device's name -- the Nokia Lumia 928 -- is clearly stated. Nokia, however, has remained a bit more secretive on its Web site, saying only that users should "stay tuned for updates about the newest Nokia Lumia." The image on that page, however, is the same, and the link says "lumia928."

Rumors cropped up last month that Nokia was in talks with Verizon to bring a new handset to the carrier's service. That rumor suggested that the Lumia 928 would come with a metal body, a 4.5-inch touchscreen, and an 8-megapixel camera.

For now, Nokia has not revealed any details on the device.
