Fresh images of Nokia's (NOK -3.3%) Lumia 928 (reportedly due to hit Verizon this month) indicate the presence of a PureView camera (relative to the 920). Nokia is counting on the 928 to lift flagging U.S. sales - while Lumia sales rose in Q1 in most international markets, Nokia's U.S. device sales (Lumia-driven) fell to 400K, down 33% Y/Y and also below Q4's 700K. The images arrive shortly after the FT reported Nokia plans to launch a phablet and (backing up a prior report) a Lumia with a 40MP PureView sensor. Separately, images of Nokia's rumored "Catwalk" aluminum Lumia phone have leaked in China.
