The new Nokia Lumia, codenamed "Catwalk" has been the Lumia Windows Phone users have been waiting for. Nokia has designed the smartphone to be the Lumia 920's successor and as you can see from the picture it's using an aluminum frame instead of the polycarbonate casing Nokia has been using on its Lumia smartphones. The new design will allow the smartphone to be reduced in size and weight compared to the current flagship Nokia Lumia 920.

The leaked pictures show an aluminum chassis with a repositioned micro USB or micro HDMI port, headphone port, and micro SIM slot at the top of the smartphone. The back of the smartphone shows the three familiar dots that show the smartphone will be able to wirelessly charge out of the box and a new camera with a hump surrounding it.  A source has confirmed to The Verge that Nokia is currently testing smartphones with this new camera and hump design. All current Nokia Lumia smartphones have a more recessed camera.

The reported specs of the Lumia "Catwalk" are a 4.5-inch octaOLED 1280×768 display, Windows Phone 8, 16GB of internal memory, 1GB of RAM, an 8.7-megapixel f/2.0 OIS camera with LED flash, and a 2000mAh battery all weighing in at 132grams. Major differences from the Lumia 920 include a slimmer form factor, from 10.7mm to 8.4mm in thickness.

When asked about the smartphone Nokia said "it doesn't comment on rumor or speculation." The Nokia Lumia "Catwalk" is expected to be announced on May 15 for T-Mobile in the U.S. as well as international carriers, and will reportedly go in sale sometime in June.
