Supposed photo from Lumia 928 camera leaks [Update]

As Neowin has previously reported, the Nokia Lumia 928 is a rumored upgraded Lumia 920 model destined to Verizon. The new device is said to feature a redesigned aluminum body, an upgraded camera and is expected to arrive on Verizon some time in April.

To back that up, established smartphone source @EVLeaks has just posted the above picture, which was supposedly taken with a Lumia 928, as can be seen in the EXIF data below. The image was shared on someone's Google+ profile but has since been removed. The EXIF data clearly shows this is a Windows Phone device and the model states it is indeed the Lumia 928. Geolocation also points to a Malt and Wine bar in Redmond, home of Microsoft.

Of course it's quite easy to spoof EXIF data so don't get too excited but considering the device is supposed to be out soon there's a real chance that this is legit.

Update: MyNokiaBlog managed to get their hands on a couple of other images whose EXIF data points at The Lumia 928. They were found on Flickr but were quickly removed. We add them here courtesy of WPCentral.

Nice to see. I can't wait for this device to come to Verizon (Though I hope we get some color choices too)... I'll get this device in a heart beat...

Can i drag and drop movies (divx downloads) on the lumia without converting first? This is what i love on my android but id like to get such a lumia device.

I've never tried, but I'm pretty sure the answer is no.

Edit: As GP007 mentioned, however, DivX files should be supported. But there isn't any automatic conversion software for Windows Phone devices that I know of.

You'll have to double check but we're talking DivX .avi files right, then they should play without conversion unless it's some new unsupported DivX version/profile.

Zune used to do automatic conversion for almost anything but it took a long time.

That's the norm for lots of software, one step forward, then one step back

It depends though, right now if it's a supported DivX profile then you don't have to convert anything as long as it's in a supported container.

When I put videos on my phone (h264 mp4) using File Explorer it asks if I want to convert them. Don't know what formats it can convert from though.

Yes you can drag and drop divx videos (using regular File Explorer) without converting. It can play most videos, but there are some wonky divx videos that won't work sometimes just like on Android, but that's rare. You should be fine for the most part

Good to hear, wont move to Verizon because they suck but otherwise a great device. Will stick with my lumia 920 until nokia announces another great device that works on either tmob or att or Microsoft unleashes the surface phone.

Really? I've tried ALL the US carriers and my experience has been that Verizon (In both service and customer support) has been the best...

Catwalk is rumored to be the international, GSM version of the 928. Based on what has leaked so far there is not enough to make me replace my920 with this. I am checking what improvements will be brought to the OS itself before deciding what to do, besides my 920 is just five months old so I am not in a hurry.
Granted if MS would launch a Surface, magnesium body device which would use Windows Update and cutting carriers and sloppy OEMs out of the picture I would buy it right away.
