Purported Specs For Lumia 928 Leak As Rumors Continue To Point At T-Mobile Launch

With all of our attention on the iPhone, HTC One and Galaxy S 4 lately it’s easy to forget that there’s still at least one rumored flagship Windows Phone 8 device rumored for T-Mobile shelves. Now, thanks to Italian blogger Flavio we’re getting what could be our first look at a list of “confirmed” specs for the device.

According to Flavio’s tweets from yesterday, the Nokia Catwalk also known as the Lumia 928 will sport a Qualcomm S4 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 4.5″ octaOLED 1280×768 display, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal memory, 8.7 megapixel f/2.0 camera, 2000mAh battery all weighing in at 132grams. Major differences from the Lumia 920 include a slimmer form factor from 10.7mm to 8.4mm in thickness.

According to Flavio, the Catwalk will be unveiled May 15th with a release coming in late June. T-Mobile continues to be rumored as a carrier partner in the US along with Verizon, as  seen by a picture unveiled last night by @evleaks, seen below. Unfortunately, the Verizon image doesn’t show off the rumored aluminum body we first heard about in late February but that’s not to say T-Mobile wouldn’t end up with different hardware. The rumors tie in nicely as some have speculated about an upcoming LTE-capable Windows Phone launch after comments made by T-Mobile’s CEO on Bloomberg television.

With so much attention on Android, BlackBerry and iOS in recent months on T-Mobile, it’s nice to have a bone to throw to Windows Phone fans wishing for LTE love.

    32gb was ok

    16gb without a cardslot is a failure

    • I think I could squeeze by with 16, most people could I think. But not having an option leaves some out in the cold. Maybe there will be a 32 GB Model?

      • ceegii63

        im banking that Nokia followed the 720 design to get an Card Slot somewhere

  • Bratty

    What? Another iphone story. You have become an Apple blog and its not about tmo and all these losers who read your site dont know shit…

    Sorry, could not help myself!

    • The iPhone is the gold standard in the industry

      • rob

        Correction: Used to be the Gold standard, after the 4S (4 if you count LTE) they started playing the catch up game with Samsung and HTC, heck even LG.

    • jonathan3579

      Bratty.. Yeah, that screen name seems pretty accurate to me.

  • 928 is for Verizon. This was code name laser. Catwalk is the yet un-numbered device with aluminum build headed for Tmo (fingers crossed).

  • Austin Warren

    If this was 1080p and slightly bigger. I’d be all over it.

    • g2a5b0e

      There are no 1080 WP8 phones because the OS doesn’t support the resolution.

      • Austin Warren

        That’s a bit ridiculous.

        • TechHog

          Why? Microsoft’s control over what the OS runs on is the whole reason the OS is so consistent, and it’s not like 1080p does anything for a phone besides making the screen sharper.

        • Austin Warren

          Makes a big difference to me. Sharp and clear is what I need.

        • TechHog

          It’s still going to be sharp and clear at that resolution. After you get over 300PPI, any “big” difference you notice is a placebo effect. 1080p only really makes a difference at 5 inches and up.

        • Oscar Alvarado

          At least it has 331ppi.

  • the2000guy

    Excellent… Let the play begin. Iphone 5, S4, htc one, BB Z10 and now nokia. Thanks David for the information provided even there is a lot of iphone haters around here crying about those articles about iphone 5.

  • Therese

    xenon flash!!

  • ceefu

    Ooh, Zeiss lens on the camera….

  • Derrick

    Honestly, this is too little too late. I’ll grab the One if t-mobile has it in black. If not, I’ll just find a nexus 4. I’m not even considering another windows phone until after the build conference in june. Maybe there will be some nice WP devices this holiday season.

  • Alex Zapata

    If I remember correctly, doesn’t Flavio have a rather mediocre record for his reliability on rumors?

  • susan

    Is tmobile going to block software updates for this like they did the nokia 710 and 810?

    The CEO is really good at swearing, but the company isn’t so good about supporting their products.

  • Mobilewolf789

    “It’s a me, your uncle Flavio! “

  • OnlineRefugee

    Microsoft Windows Phone, fixed battery, no microSD slot… sheesh, this is DOA if it ever comes to the U.S.

    • Whiskers

      Yea right , just like the HTC One right ?

  • riopato

    16gbs instead of 32gb and no mention of a microsd slot, the thinner dimensions suggests that it lacks the 920’s camera lens, looking at Verizon’s 920 is like looking at ATT 900 running wp8. Yup Catwalk does sound like a T-Mobile version of the 920. A gimped version of the 920 as is the 810 is a gimped version of the 820 and can’t be upgraded to LTE. The same as the 710 which couldn’t even be a gimped version of the 800 that it was downgraded to it’s own series model and can’t officially be upgraded to 7.8.
    T-Mobile’s Lumia 910 is already looking to be a lack luster phone that should’ve came out the same time as the Lumia 920. I’m pretty sure that T-Mobile will treat this phone the same way they are treating the other Lumias that were specifically made for this carrier.

  • Fish

    If this comes to T-Mobile, and looks good in person, then I’ll be getting one!

    Been using android for a while, I like the synergy Win8 devices have, and my friend has a 920 which is quite nice. Time for a change and I’ve been waiting for something like this.

    Will it have induction charging?

  • sapient

    This should be 918 and not 928 since the specs seem to point towards an inferior device compared to 920 (only 16 gb with no micro sd). I would be really interested in this but with tmobile’s previous record on code upgrades ….

    • sapient

      Just read that OCTA (OLED) is a pentile arrangement with surface like touch screen (resulting is a thinner display). Not sure about what it will look like. Will reserve judgement until I can see it side by side with Lumia 920.

  • This better have SD or i’m gonna rage.
