Nokia unveiling Lumia 928 for Verizon next month

Nokia's new flagship Lumia 928 for Verizon is reportedly scheduled for a launch in May. Verizon will "unveil a plan next month" for the Lumia 928, which reportedly features a "metal body" alongside a 4.5-inch screen, an 8-megapixel camera, and wireless charging. The Verge's own sources have previously indicated that Nokia will not be using an aluminum frame for this particular devices, opting for a thinner polycarbonate body.

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop recently hinted at a new Lumia due "later this quarter" with a hero status on a leading US carrier ahead of "a season of new product introductions." Elop didn't name check the Lumia 928 specifically, but he has previously refused to answer questions about the Lumia 928. Leaked photos of the device surfaced earlier this month, showing a similar handset to Nokia's existing Lumia 920 with the addition of a Xenon flash at the rear.

We're told that Nokia has been waiting on final testing of Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 GDR2 update, and suggests that the Lumia 928 will launch in May instead of April as originally planned. Either way, expect to see Verizon's Lumia 928 over the coming weeks.
