UK launch date to be revealed for new Nokia?

Nokia Lumia 928The Nokia Lumia 928 could see a UK launch at an event held in London next week, providing those interested in 4G phones with yet another option to choose from. The company has already unveiled the device in the US and chosen to show off the impressive capabilities of its video recording in comparison to a couple of major competitors. If you enjoy making your own videos then it could prove to be the decisive factor in persuading you to choose the handset.

In a post to the Nokia US YouTube channel entitled ‘New Nokia Lumia with PureView takes on The Hurricane’ viewers are shown how the 928’s camera fares against that of the Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy III. For those not in the know, The Hurricane is a rollercoaster located within Farmingdale, New York’s Adventureland. Nokia points out that the ride reaches as high as 60 feet and features an inverted loop.

The manufacturer invites viewers to draw their own judgement on which camera performs better on the “shake-filled and low-lit ride”. It also points out some of the ways in which the Lumia has the edge, such as “sharper image focus” versus both the iPhone 5 and Galaxy III and “greater colour saturation” and “less video noise” versus those phones respectively.

If you’re in the UK and looking to get your hands on a new Nokia then you may be able to find out more about this smartphone following the press event scheduled for May 14th. If a release date is revealed then you might find yourself having to choose between the 928 and other recent models such as the Lumia 820, 920 and 720.

All of the Swedish company’s devices make use of the Windows Phone 8 operating system, giving users access to a store of thousands of apps that could allow them to truly make their phone their own.

Exact specifications are as yet unknown but it is thought that it will have a 4.5-inch AMOLED display, which could make it ideal for watching video content, whether it’s your own or from elsewhere. According to a page on Nokia’s website it will also use a 9.7-MegaPixel PureView camera with Optical Image Stabilisation and Carl Zeiss optics, which as its YouTube post suggested make it better able to cope with lower lighting.
