Nokia is all set to launch its Lumia range in the USA signing Verizon. Both the smartphone major and the carrier have entered into a deal for the forthcoming handset. The Nokia Lumia 928 is a flagship mobile handset that will enter the market from the following month. This mobile is one that is next in line to the present range of Nokia Lumia smartphones that have been launched till date.
Both the smartphone manufacturer and Verizon have made the deal public. These claims however have been made by Bloomberg stating that both these telecom giants have struck a deal. There are reports from Bloomberg that the Lumia 928 phone was seen in the systems of FCC and Verizon. There was an image of the device that was leaked in the beginning of the month.
If the above Verizon deal is true the Lumia 928 will become the first high end phone that the carrier will launch. In the USA most of the Lumia phones have been carried exclusively by Verizon. Today this carrier has about 100 million subscribers and they are on board with the flagship mobile that is vital to the success of both companies.
Bloomberg has also reported that this lumia phone will launch on the carrier soon. This phone will sport a metal body along with a touch screen of 4.5 inches. It will also have an 8MP camera and wireless charging. There are some previous rumors that this phone will also have a polycarbonate body and the internals of the phone have been expected to be the same like the Lumia 920.
It has been seen that North America has always been a very weak market for the Nokia. Way back in its Symbian days it also did not perform too well. In the Q1 results that were published last week it has been seen that Nokia had experienced an increase in sales by 9% compared to the records last year. Nokia has also recorded selling a large number of Lumia phones across the globe in the quarter.
Nokia is gradually climbing up the popularity charts when it comes to mobile smartphone devices in the world. It has been successful with its Nokia range of smartphones. Currently it is behind two leaders the iOS and Android. This helps the smartphone build some momentum in the region. This momentum has helped Verizon to take a hint from the Nokia Lumia flagship phone.
