A fresh rumor has surfaced bearing claim that the Nokia Lumia 925 is what the Finnish manufacturer plans on unveiling on May 14. And while previous reports have suggested that the 928 is what we could be seeing at the London event next week, it turns out that the 2 handsets aren’t going to be completely different devices, but merely variants for specific markets.
The former will be launched internationally carrying the codename name Catwalk, while the 928 as known by many, is destined for Verizon. To clarify things, the information provided needs to be taken solely as speculation. The news comes via WMPoweruser who cites windowsphonebar.cn as its source, and isn’t officially disclosed by the manufacturer as yet. Thanks to a couple of leaks, we’ve already seen what the 2 devices might look like.
The US-bound one has appeared in its final attire with the carrier and PureView brandings on-board. An official word is all that we’ve been waiting for. The Catwalk on the other hand will feature an aluminum construction which is a first for the series. Apart from the visual differences, their internals will be quite similar and not much different from the flagship 920.
That basically means, interested buyers can expect the phone to carry a 4.5-inch octaOLED display proffering a resolution of 1280 × 768 pixels. On the inside, an entire gigabyte of RAM, 16GB of storage and a dual core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 SOC are what we anticipate along with a 2000mAh battery to power it up. Not to mention, there will also be an 8.7MP camera on the rear.
Additionally, there has been talk of yet another handset that’s yet to go official. The EOS or Lumia 1000, should also be making an appearance at the event. This smartphone will be worlds apart from the current generation. Rumor has it that the device will be deployed with an upcoming Snapdragon 800 SOC bringing it up to pace with the competition, and a 41MP sensor that’s accompanied by a Xenon LED flash.
The Nokia Lumia 925 being the official name for Catwalk would clear up one mystery and it also being the international variant of the 928, clarifies the rumors behind why the manufacturer plans on unveiling a US-based smartphone in Europe.
