20130508-210423.jpg Nokia is teasing the Lumia 928 — a phone it has not
officially announced yet, despite all the
leaks, rumours and, er, magazine ads – in a camera
comparison video posted on its U.S. website. All this
teasing smells like a new strategy for Nokia to try to
manufacture a little hype for the forthcoming Windows Phone 8 flagship, which is apparently heading to
Verizon. The camera comparison pits the Lumia 928 against
two of the most hyped smartphones in the tech world:
the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5. Although
the Lumia device is not identified by name in the
actual text or video on the page, the URL is far less
coy: http://www.nokia.com/us-en/lumia928 The page does confirm the device will have an 8.7MP
PureView camera with Carl Zeiss optics and the
optical image stabilization first seen on the Lumia
920. The camera specs are in fact exactly the same
as the 920′s. The design, however, looks rather more
slab-like — with what look like blunted sides, vs the 920′s rounded edges. According to Nokia’s low light camera test —
conducted at a fairground in New York — the Lumia
has greater colour saturation and sharper image focus
than the iPhone 5, and less video noise and sharper
image focus than the Galaxy S3. But then Nokia
would say that, wouldn’t they? It’s certainly interesting to note Nokia has picked on
last year’s flagship Galaxy for the comparison, rather
than pitting it against Samsung’s latest flagship: the
Galaxy S4 (which has a 13MP rear camera).
