Nokia To Unveil New Lumia In London On May 14, Will It Be The “Catwalk”?
Nokia is planning to hold a May 14 press conference in London to talk about where it is headed with its Lumia line of Windows devices.
Nokia Catwalk rumors have been looming in the air since a few weeks now, and this week, a couple of images had surfaced on the Chinese website Baidu, giving us an idea of how the smartphone might look like.
The Nokia Catwalk is expected to come with a 4.5-inch OLED display with a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels. The smartphone will be powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor paired with 1GB of RAM, just like the Lumia 920, but the Nokia Catwalk will comes with lesser, 16GB of internal storage, as opposed to 32GB on the Lumia 920.
The Nokia Catwalk is expected to sport a 8.7 megapixel f2.0 camera and a 2,000mAh non-removable battery. The dimensions of the upcoming device are expected to be 129 x 71 x 8.4mm, and it is expected to weigh-in at just 132 grams.
And though the company recently announced entry- and mid-range devices in the Lumia 520 and 720, it hasn’t launched a flagship model since the the Lumia 920 was unveiled in September. In the smartphone world, that is a very long time.
We’ve also heard rumours that Nokia might debut a Windows 8 tablet, and considering the length of the event — it’s set to last six hours — we wouldn’t be surprised to see more than one product announced.
Nokia’s partnership with Microsoft seems to be stronger than ever at this point, which would make a Windows 8 tablet — or even a Windows RT slate — a possibility.
We’ll have to wait and see what Nokia has in store for us. But keep in mind that it is launching the product(s) the day before Google I/O begins, so expect big things from the company.
