Verizon Nokia Lumia 928 pops up in internal systems

In January, rumors hit the Internet that Verizon Wireless would begin selling its own version of the Nokia Lumia 920, which currently is an AT&T exclusive in the US. Now a new report claims to have a screenshot that shows Verizon will be selling a previously unnamed Nokia phone, the Lumia 928.

The image, as posted by PhoneArena, was put into the list in mid-January, but Verizon has been quiet about its plans for future Windows Phone-based products. If this listing is true, it would join Verizon's version of the HTC Windows Phone 8X, the Lumia 822 (Verizon's exclusive variant on the Lumia 820) and the Samsung ATIV Odyssey. It would also mean that Verizon would have four Windows Phone 8-based smartphones for sale, versus two for AT&T and three from T-Mobile, which will add the Nokia Lumia 521 sometime later this year.

The previous rumors about Verizon's version of the Nokia Lumia 920 gave it the code name "Laser" and that Verizon would promote the launch of the phone heavily, much as AT&T did in November with the Lumia 920. However, it remains to be seen what hardware changes, if any, would be made for Verizon's version.
