The Nokia Lumia 920 proved an average hooker, and it failed to stop Samsung's growing ambitions. However, the Finnish giant is actively involved by releasing budget WP8 devices in the form of Lumia 620 and Lumia 510.
Now, the company is rumored to be working on another smartphone codenamed Catwalk aka Lumia 928, which is speculated to be a Lumia 920 replacement with a metallic body. The device which is reportedly slated to be announced for US based network provider Verizon, should be out later this month.
Recently, alleged leak has been provided by Twitter account @evleaks, which outed snapshots of the front and rear back, which shares aesthetic senses with the Lumia 920. Molded in black chassis (polycarbonate plastic?) and 4G LTE logo on the back are the visible features known at the moment.
The handset will hit US markets first by all means. It was speculated that Nokia could opt for aluminum styled body in lieu of thin plastic polycarbonate body to dress up Lumia 928.
Not only the image of the Lumia 928 aka Catwalk, but also its specifications have been leaked online. A tweet from Italian personality Flavio reveals what is said to be alleged specs of the Nokia Catwalk. While above is the image leaked by a Twitter user, below are the specs of the forthcoming Windows Phone 8 handset.
According to Flavio, the Nokia Lumia 928 Catwalk will come with a 4.5 inch octaOLED display with resolution of 768 x 1280 pixels, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, 8.7MP rear camera with PureView technology as in Lumia 920 and a non-removable 2,000 mAh battery.
The use of an OLED screen is interesting, suggesting features including Nokia's active standby clock. Moreover, an earlier report claimed that the handset will be announced alongside Nokia EOS, which could be a Lumia smartphone combining the likes of Windows Phone 8 and the 41MP PureView camera technology.
EOS is rumored to come with a 4.3 inch capacitive touchscreen display with HD resolution, 1.5GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor and Adreno 320 graphics processor.
Recently, Microsoft uttered that Windows Phone platform has ousted BlackBerry from third most popular mobile OS. The upsurge in the popularity of Windows handsets is widely because of Nokia's consistent efforts. It is likely to believe that the Nokia Lumia 928 will be promoted as just another version of Lumia 920.
