Nokia's new high-end model to be aluminum?
Nokia is said to be working on a successor to the Nokia Lumia 920
Finnish handset manufacturer Nokia is known for its polycarbonate handsets, which makes the new high-end model it is allegedly working on seem completely different. Those with knowledge of what Nokia has in mind, say that the successor to the Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 model will be made out of aluminum. That would make the model, which is codenamed Catwalk, lighter and thinner than its current top of the line handset. The phone codenamed Catwalk should be launched sometime later this year.

Additionally, Nokia is said to be working on another pair of handsets that will all be part of Nokia's new line up for 2013. The Catwalk is said to have the same internal hardware specs as the Nokia Lumia 920 and with the use of the aluminum, Nokia hopes to bring down the weight on its top model in order to better compete against the size and weight of the Apple iPhone. The polycarbonate on the Nokia Lumia 920 makes the device weigh in at 185 grams compared to the 112 grams that the Apple iPhone 5 tips the scale at.
