May 14th event to unveil Nokia Catwalk, 4.7 inch Nokia Lumia 625, but not the Nokia Lumia 928?
Get that salt shaker ready, because we have a rumor that sounds great for Nokia and Windows Phone fans, but needs to be verified by the Finnish based manufacturer before we can tell those fans to jump for joy. According to an anonymous source, Nokia is believed to be readying a Lumia model with the largest screen in the Lumia line.

The Nokia Lumia 625 will supposedly be launched with a 4.7 inch panel featuring WVGA resolution. That does not work out to a splendid pixel density. A dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor is under the hood, but only 512MB of RAM is on board. The model will have Windows Phone 8 with the GDR2 update pre-installed out of the box, and will be equipped with a 2000mAh battery. Besides having a unibody design, the unit will offer LTE connectivity. Nokia is said to be aiming to offer the cheapest LTE enabled phone with the largest display among Lumia models. If it is announced next week, expect the phone to launch as early as next month.

The same source says that the Nokia Lumia 625 will be introduced at the May 14th press event being held in London. At the same event, the tipster says that the Nokia Catwalk will be unwrapped and the specs tipped confirm previous speculation about the device. That means we should see a aluminum clad design, a 4.5 inch 720p display with PureMotionHD+, and a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 under the hood. 1GB of RAM is said on board along with 16GB of native storage. A 2000mAh battery is inside the phone, which supports optional wireless charging. The Nokia Catwalk is said to resemble the Nokia Lumia 920 after a successful diet.

Another surprise is that the Nokia Lumia 928 is not expected to be one of the models introduced at the event next week according to information received by My Nokia Blog. The phone was spotted on a billboard in the U.S.last week and has just been seen in a layout in Vanity Fair along with an appearance on Verizon's website. It had been expected that this model would be one of the phones to be introduced next week in London. Instead, we might see the device get unveiled in the U.S. shortly.
