Just this morning I was thinking how everything had gone a bit quiet on the Nokia front compared with the big Lumia 920/Lumia 820 push over the closing months of 2012.
And what do we have here? The first rumours surrounding the next generation of Lumia smartphone, and more specifically a handset codenamed Catwalk, which will reportedly ditch the polycarbonate of the current high-end Lumias for an aluminium shell.
According to The Verge, the Catwalk will be thinner and lighter than the current Lumia 920 thanks as a result of the aluminium construction, though it's an interesting about-turn considering how much time and effort Nokia went to in talking up its plast... sorry, polycarbonate shells.
The Verge reckons the Catwalk will otherwise be a moderate evolution of the Lumia 920 from a hardware standpoint, which is no surprise considering the current model is already towards the upper limit of the specs supported by Windows Phone 8.
There's no real timeframe being mentioned beyond “later this year”, but we are told there are two other Lumia handsets in the works, though it remains to be seen if they'll be evolutions of a current device like the Catwalk, or additional handsets to flesh out the Lumia range.
