Nokia Lumia 928 leaks, thinner than the 920

Another Nokia is set to overtake the Lumia 920 as the company's flagship, but will it make it to the UK?

A new Nokia is on the cards, and this one promises to strip the Lumia 920 of its flagship status. Called the Lumia 928, it's leaked via the @evleaks Twitter account, and it's a slightly tweaked version of the 920.

The 928 is heading for US network Verizon, so I don't know whether us Brits will ever see it on these shores. Still, we can hope…

So what's changed from the Lumia 920? The two look very similar, but the 928 has a longer flash on the back. It'll also be slightly thinner, measuring 10.2mm at its thinnest point and 11.2mm at its thickest, with a slightly curved back, according to The Verge. Instead of an LCD screen, the 928 will sport a 4.5-inch OLED jobby. Other than that, the specs are near identical, with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 32GB of storage, and 1GB of RAM. Good stuff.

The Lumia 928 will eschew an aluminium frame in favour of a thinner polycarbonate one. It'll also reportedly have a new xenon flash as well as the same LED one as found on the 920. Lighting your snaps shouldn't be an issue, then.

It's expected to go on sale in the US later this month, but as I say, there's no word on whether it'll find its way across the pond.

The Lumia 920 earned itself a highly commendable four out of five stars in our review. But that's not as good as the wallet-friendly Lumia 620 , which scored four and a half. Proof you don't need to spend big to get a decent smart phone.

What do you reckon of the Lumia 928? A worthwhile upgrade, or too minor to bother with? Would you like to see it reach the UK? Let me know in the comments, or on our Facebook page.
