Nokia Lumia 928 will arrive on Verizon next week

The Nokia Lumia 928 has been unveiled in the US as an exclusive to Verizon.

The new flagship handset from Nokia features a 4.5in OLED display with 1,280 x 768 resolution. It runs a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm chip, and features 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage - and of course runs Windows Phone.

The main camera is an 8.7-megapixel PureView, and there's also a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera.

The Lumia 928 is the follow-up to Nokia's first Windows Phone handset, the Lumia 920, which was released last year. It also featured a 4.5in display with 1,280 x 768 resolution and 8.7-megapixel camera.

The Lumia 928 is arriving in the US 16 May. Asked if the handset would arrive in the UK, a Nokia spokesperson stressed that the handset was a Verizon exclusive. However, Nokia is holding an event next week.

In the US, the Lumia 928 is $99 on a two-year contract, after a $50 rebate.

Nokia has been under pressure from investors to boost sales. While its Lumia line reported record sales of 5.8 million units last quarter, the company still lost €272 million.
