Nokia Lumia 920’s WP8 successor codenamed Catwalk, should be made of aluminum

With Nokia having only one high-end Windows Phone 8 device at the moment – the Lumia 920 – it’s only natural for the company to prepare a new Windows Phone flagship device for 2013.

According to The Verge and undisclosed “sources familiar” with the matter, Nokia intends to use an aluminum body “for at least one high-end Lumia Windows Phone” that’s going to be launched sometime this year. The aluminum construction would allow the new handset to be significantly thinner and lighter than the Lumia 920 – which uses a polycarbonate body, and is one of the largest and heaviest sub 5-inch handsets out there (185 grams, 130.3 x 70.8 x 10.7 mm).

This new aluminum-made smartphone is currently codenamed Nokia Catwalk. It will be the direct successor to the Lumia 920, and should feature similar internals. So we probably must not expect a quad-core processor. But a PureView camera is almost certainly going to be included.

Apart from the Catwalk, Nokia is planning to introduce other two new Windows Phone 8 handsets this year. At the moment, there is no word on exactly when this will happen, an neither on the features or design of the two.

Until now, Nokia launched three Window Phone 8 devices. Alongside the Lumia 920 we also have the Lumia 820 (with its 810 and 822 versions), and the Lumia 620.

    What’s the screen resolution supported by Nokia Lumia 920 ? Will it go to the full HD, 1080p? I’ll throw in my bucks when: (1) it does support 1080p; or (2) priced around $250 unlocked :-) sorry Nokia, there are so many better choices eyeing my bucks :D

    Your 2nd point will always make you a cynic. A flagship phone for $250 and unlocked? Give me a break. That’s like saying you won’t buy it.
