Details have emerged of Nokia’s next major smartphone challenger, as it continues to put design at the forefront of its bid to muscle into a market dominated by Android and the iPhone.
Apparently informally dubbed the Catwalk, the handset will reportedly ditch the polycarbonate body that has been a feature of every Lumia phone so far in favour of a thinner and lighter aluminium construction.
Powered by Windows Phone, the phone will not, however, differ much from the Lumia 920 internally, which most likely means a spec sheet that takes in a dual-core processor, a camera in the region of 8.7 to 9 megapixels and a 4.5-inch ClearBlack display.
The Catwalk will be joined by two more Lumia phones, according to the Verge’s source, details of which are unconfirmed but which are likely to be lower-end models.
News of the Finnish phone-maker’s plans come after it was last year forced to once again deny it was working on an Android phone, amid reports of worse-than-anticipated sales for Lumia kits running the Windows Phone operating system.
