Nokia CEO hints at Lumia 928 release, more Lumias to be revealed soon

Nokia announced its financial results for the first quarter of the year today, and despite selling 5.6m Lumia Windows Phones - 4m of which were Windows Phone 8 handsets, with the remainder made up of effectively obsolete Windows Phone 7.x devices - the company still reported a loss of €150m. 

New products will be key to dragging the company back into the black, and on that front, the outlook is good. In an earnings will investors today, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop dropped a huge hint about the imminent launch of the Lumia 928, stating that "later this quarter, a new Lumia device is anticipated to have hero status with a leading US carrier." Earlier today, we reported that the 928, a variant of the Lumia 920 flagship destined for Verizon in the US, could be announced as soon as next week.

Elop added that this new device is set to "mark the beginning of a season of new production introductions", which certainly lines up with what we've been hearing lately.

This week, more details emerged on a new handset known by its development codename 'EOS', which is expected to feature a high-end PureView camera and possibly a quad-core chipset. Yesterday, the first images surfaced of another new Lumia known as 'Catwalk', which will feature a sleek and light aluminium body.

They should be offering a free upgrade for those of us that bought into the hype of the POS that is the 920 to whatever replaces it without the defects.

Did you buy the 920? If not then please enlighten the rest of us on how you decided that it is a POS?

i love my 920 too
it's such a nice phone! battery last twice as long as iphone, and i never turn off wifi.

I own a 920 and my wife owns an iPhone 5 and her battery performance is better than mine. Maybe your old iPhone needed a new battery.

i've an iphone5 too and last a day and half, my 920, next to it, the same carrier, last 2 to 3 days. maybe you need to get your nokia fixed

this has more to do with which apps you are running and for how long. I have the lumia 920 and if run the game Zuma then I will wake up with the phone totally drained, whatsapp is also a battery hog. I find that I need to "back out" out of most apps and cause them to "recycle" if I want to preserve my battery.

you're experience is atypical if you see any review out there; I'd be interested in the review that claims two.to three days with typical usage. Mine on ATT lasts about a day.

may I ask your method for backing out of apps? I didn't know about this, could be useful.

All reviews are made over in US, where you have one of the worse infrastructure in carriers. So, again, doesn't count for me, nor for most of the people in the rest of the world.

If the aluminum body photos are real I do hope Nokia changes the back design to have their trademark vertical strip. This makes Nokias visually identifiable. People I know who own other phones are able to see that I have a Nokia. The photos I've seen with the bulbous camera lens without the vertical strip make the phone look like a Samsung. If Nokia isn't careful with brand consistency and identifiability, Nokia may become tue next LG: no one can identify an LG and no one knows what LG stands for.

Lol, you actually think theyd recognize or care about a Nokia phone

i love my lumia 920, after the latest firmware update, the phone is PERFECT!

i got all the apps i need, games, best camera on a cellphone, everything is awesome.


but... if to be completely honest, my screen got scratch "easily", put it in my pocket with my car keys, i got dimples that annoy me.. a bit.
wonder how much it cost to replace it.

well, my car keys are pretty pointy and sharp, at first i as a bit amused, now, not so..


there's a slight scratch, which is nothing for me, but the tiny holes, are annoying, very.

Heard comments about some saying the Zagg screen protectors will fill in the scratches and they are not noticeable.
