Rumors of the Nokia Lumia 928 have been surfacing for a while now and a recent report suggests that some parts of the smartphone are already out. A recent video from the same source shows how the screen assembly is done on the Lumia 928.
Speculations suggest that the Lumia 928 will have similar overall specifications to those in the Lumia 920, but the devices will have a slightly different external design and altered internal parts. ETradeSupply has released a video which shows how the screen assembly of the Lumia 920 and the Lumia 928 will be different.
Like the Lumia 920, the Lumia 928 is expected to sport a 4.5-inch display but Nokia designed a completely different approach to the assembly. The key difference is the streamlining from three flex cables on the Lumia 920 to just one on the Lumia 928.
Another area of difference between the two devices is how the Lumia 920's glass and digitizer do not even make contact with the LCD itself. On the Lumia 928, all three layers are fused together using optical adhesive.
If the video of the Lumia 928 screen assembly is to be believed then repairing a single component of the Lumia 928's screen be more difficult. If there is a problem with the screen then it is highly likely that the whole assembly may have to be replaced.
The Lumia 928 is expected to debut in London during a media event and various rumors indicate that the handset will be offered in the U.S. by Verizon in white, black, red and cyan.
Neither Nokia nor Verizon have acknowledged the existence or launch date of Nokia Lumia 928 but still parts and accessories have already appeared online, which may be an indication that the handset itself is not far from release.
