Nokia is expected to take the wraps off its much-touted Windows Phone 8 powered Lumia 928 (which is believed to be headed to U.S. carrier Verizon) at its May 14 event in London. However, now reports suggest that Nokia will also announce the rumored Lumia 925, dubbed the Catwalk, along with the Lumia 928.
The latest piece of information comes courtesy of a Chinese site Windowsphonebar.
"This is a slightly disjointed rumour, but Chinese site www.windowsphonebar.cn claims that Nokia will not only be announcing the Nokia Lumia 928 in London on the 14th May, but also the Nokia Lumia 925, which is a variant of the device for the international market known so far as the Nokia Catwalk," reports WMPoweruser.
The Nokia Catwalk is rumored to be made of aluminum unlike the Lumia 928. However, both the Lumia 928 and Lumia 925 are expected to share the specs.
The Lumia 925 is rumored to sport a 4.5-inch screen with 768 x 1280 pixels resolution. Under the hood, the smartphone will pack in a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with 1GB of RAM. The smartphone will have 16GB of on-board storage, an 8.7-megapixel primary snapper with an f/2.0 aperture, which is equipped to handle low-light conditions. The Lumia 925 will also tout a 2000mAh non-removable battery. The device will come with Windows Phone 8 out of the box.
The rumor mill has been churning out leaks and conjectures pertaining to three unannounced Nokia smartphones. While the Lumia 928 and the Lumia 925/Catwalk (supposedly the international model) are accounted for, we are yet to hear more details for the alleged Lumia EOS from the Finnish company. The Nokia EOS is purportedly the Windows Phone variant of the Symbian flavored Nokia 808 PureView, including the 41-megapixel rear-facing snapper.
With May 14 round the corner, we'll have to wait and see if Nokia has a double whammy of Nokia Lumia smartphones up its sleeve.
