U.K. ad shows a quick glimpse of new Nokia phone

Photo of what is alleged to be the back of the Nokia Catwalk

We might have just seen a quick glimpse of the Nokia Catwalk in a 20 second ad that is running in the U.K. The phone has a metal body, which dovetails with the speculation that the model would have a casing made of aluminum. The phone is expected to be introduced Tuesday during an event in the U.K. We also should mention that the phone in the ad looks remarkably similar to the device that was called the Nokia Catwalk in pictures leaked last month. The hump around the camera and the flash appear to match.

On the other hand, between looks at the handset, we see the words "More than your eyes can see," during the short commercial, which makes us instantly think that this is an ad for a camera-centric model. And considering that the oft-rumored Nokia Lumia EOS could also be part of the festivities on Tuesday, perhaps what we see in the ad is that phone. After all, the EOS device is expected to feature a design similar to the Nokia Catwalk with the same 41MP rear camera sensor used on the Nokia 808 PureView. It could even be that the Nokia Catwalk and the rumored EOS device are one and the same.

As we pointed out this afternoon, U.K. carrier Vodafone has already decided to stock whatever Nokia introduces on the 14th. Meanwhile, you can check out the ad and the mystery Nokia camera below.

I'm fairly certaing those leaked still pics are of some sort of prototype, and the little glimpses in the video show hardly anything. We won't really know what this phone looks like till the 14th.

Did they say that this phone was going to be announced on May 14th? Personally, I would have preferred a rolled back (similar to what HTC did with the One) instead of a pimple for the lens.

I prefer the Lumia 720 design over the 928. Also I think the 928 is too big for a 4.5".

Here's the new Nokia Lumia928, a revampe of Lumia920, with updated camera, but not specs!

While Android and Apple update their Cpu, Gpu, and cameras, Nokia thinks consumers prefer updates on camera rather than specs. What a joke!

1st of all who gives a F****** about specs if my phone has 0.5 ghz and run smoothly than who the ^&^%$ what it has inside specs are just another gimmick sometimes and the lumia 928 was just a lumia 920 for verizon

THE 928 IS VERIZONS MODULE OF THE 920 AND WP8 DOSENT NEED UPDATED CPU AND GPU CAUSE IT RUNS SMOOTHER AND FASTER THAN ALL ANDROID DEVICES

SURE YOU CAN SAY WP8 HAS LAST YEAR SPECS

BUT LAST YEARS SPECS FROM ANDROID RUNS ON WP8 MUCH BETTER THAT THIS YEARS SPECS ON ANDROID :)

Go ahead and glorify your Android Specs
Or the catch up Apple is doing
This is WP 8
No need for all those cores, still smoother than your quad core Android crap

Big games are very laggy and stuttering on WP old hardware, you can't deny that, ok the UI is fluid, but if it can't run demanding apps/games, what's the point, at least the iphones have powerful GPU to handle it. And well, Android is on another level my friend, beautiful graphics you can only envy.

I hate to say this but what you said make sense
Well, but I still don't think WP8 is for serious gaming
I don't play games that's why I didn't see that weak point until you point it out
WP 8 users don't really play games
I gave you a thumb up

Then why bother putting games on the wp8 market?

i dont even think they upgraded the camera, the major improvement from the 928 is the xenon flash

not everybdy is interesting in downloading crap@ss apps and dumb games for $1-$5. some really dwell for camera. And memories what we carry when we look at those old pics, nt games and their high score. Grow up b@@@h.all tnis cpu and gpu is just a gimmick. Its nt the public which profits but developers. Lmfao. Btw any android with lower specs then 1ghz and 1 gb ram lags and hangs like a cr@p. .i dont care much bout the design if it gives me on par pics to n8 or 808 p.v. Nd ois vid best night shots..have n n8 frm last 2 years and to allbthe trips i been it was my armcandy. I have likemore then 15 gb worth pics in my lappy by n8and these were all for different occasions. Ad m talkin only pics nt video. And i guess there are crazy people lyk me who keep suh memories 'Taken either vid their nokia,s or camera,s. dont write cheque that ur @$$ cant cash.....

This guy still thinks that specs are the main thing, dude if the software is not optimized than you can put a octacore and 2gb ram etc etc, it will have no effect your phone will still lag! Just like Android which still not optimized!

awesome if i'm not mistaken Nokia are trying to achieve what they did with the 808 pureview on the windows phone to get some Symbian fans to switch putting that aside that looks great and awesome and hopefully it will be sexier and lighter than previous nokias

Do you really like the pimple on the back for the lens? Personally, there would have to be something really compelling (like a 40+ Mp PV camera module) to get me to like the pimple/zit on the back.

I guess the pimple on the back is a sensor. But seriously, I don't like the pimple on the back, I can accept it if it is a sensor or something. But all we have to do is to wait till May 14th.

Yeah I agree. That pimple on the the back was probably not the best idea.

It's not one and the same. Nokia wouldn't be so stupid to launch a camera centric smartphone of that caliber and leave out a xenon flash. They're two different phones.
