Nokia Lumia 928 officially confirmed, with PureView camera

Nokia has finally confirmed the new Nokia Lumia 928, a flagship Windows Phone with souped-up PureView camera technology.

Nokia has finally confirmed the new Nokia Lumia 928. The worst-kept secret in the world of technology, the 928 is a flagship Windows Phone with souped-up PureView camera technology.

The 928 will debut on US network Verizon, but Nokia has yet to confirm release dates and prices for the UK.

The new phone is a 4.5-inch phone with Microsoft Windows Phone 8 software, running on a dual-core 1.5GHz processor with 1GB of RAM. Strangely, the 928 eschews the usual colourful Lumia livery, coming in just black or white.

The camera is an 8.7-megapixel job, which isn't a huge number next to the fabled 41-megapixel Nokia 808 PureView , but it does borrow PureView features from that phone. The 928 has optical image stabilisation to cut out blur from your snaps, with a Carl Zeiss lens and xenon flash. It also shoots 1080p high definition video, with a second camera on the front for video chat in crisp 720p.

Other features include wireless charging and 32GB of storage for your apps and snaps.

On Tuesday we'll be live from the London launch of the new flagship Lumia Windows Phone, although it may have a different name in different regions. Keep it CNET for all the first news, previews and videos of the new Lumia, including a live blog breaking the news in style.
