Verizon, Nokia to sell Lumia 928 starting next month — report

A new Nokia Lumia handset might be headed to Verizon Wireless.

Nokia and Verizon have been in talks to bring a new Lumia handset, known as the Lumia 928, to the carrier’s store shelves next month, Bloomberg is reporting, citing two people who claim to have knowledge of their plans. The handset will be the first Lumia Verizon will sell.

According to Bloomberg’s sources, the Lumia 928 will come with a metal body and a 4.5-inch touch screen. It’ll also include wireless charging and an 8-megapixel camera. As with previous Lumia devices, the handset will run Windows Phone.

It appears that the Lumia 928 is not the device Nokia plans to unveil tomorrow. Yesterday, the company posted a note on its blog hinting at the launch of a new smartphone on Wednesday. That device, whenever it appears, is expected to come with a QWERTY keyboard.

CNET has contacted both Nokia and Verizon for comment on the Bloomberg report. We will update this story when we have more information.
