Nokia unveil new Lumia 928 with PureView

Phone giant Nokia has unveiled its flagship Windows 8 smart phone. The new Lumia 928 which comes with a PureView camera – an impressive 8.7 inch megapixel rear-facing camera with image stabilisers for better pictures in low light environments.

The new handset also features Near Field Communications and wireless charging capabilities, like the old Nokia and has a 4.5 inch, 1280 x 768 displays with 334PPI. Although the camera’s aesthetics are the same as the previous Lumia 920, it’s the camera which sets it apart.

Other key features include the ability to be able to operate the touch screen through gloves or with long nails, a 1.5GHz dual core Qualcomm processor, a 1.2 megapixel camera at the front, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory.

Although the new interface is smoother than its predecessor, it is basically an upgraded version of the 920 and lacks cutting edge technology. Nokia has chosen to emphasis the phone’s camera capabilities as its USP in order to compete with the more technologically advanced competition.

Previously, Nokia had attempted to push the Windows 8 aspect of the phone but with little, if any, success. The new phone is also hardly likely to cause waves as it was announced via a press release rather than a full-blown invent to introduce it to the market, although there is a an event planned for next week which is expected to be about Lumia.

The announcement next week could be related to a new tablet or phablet device, although it has still raised several eyebrows in the industry as to why they would announce a new phone in such a low key way when an event is planned for the week after.
