In an attempt to make its next flagship lighter and thinner, Nokia is planning on using aluminum for the Lumia 920 successor. The device, according to The Verge‘s sources is codenamed Catwalk and will debut some time this year.
According to the people familiar with Nokia’s plans, the Catwalk is going to feature similar hardware specifications as the Lumia 920.
Switching from polycarbonate body to aluminum-clad construction would be more than welcome news for Nokia N8 fans, who never really approved of the Finn’s sudden love of polycarbonate.
In addition, there are two more Lumia smartphones that will join the lineup this year, but no further information has been provided.
