Nokia teases the 'next Lumia' in 20-second ad

Post announcing the Lumia 928 on Friday, Nokia seems to be in the mood to introduce yet another phone in its upcoming event in London this week. The Finnish company released a 20-second teaser of a newer Lumia during an advertising break on British TV this Sunday.

The video uploaded on YouTube by Tom Warren of The Verge essentially shows the upcoming Lumia’s camera hump with the tag line More than your eyes can see”. The video glides slowly over the back of the handset and shows off the camera lens as well as the flash next to it.


It looks probable that the handset in the video is the rumoured aluminium bodied “Catwalk” device that everyone was talking about in April. The teaser plays solely on the camera, fuelling expectations about it being the USP of the phone. The ad ends with the words, “The new Nokia Lumia is coming”, making us wonder if this is going to be announced in its upcoming event. 

Besides the Lumia 925, the Lumia 928 – apparently “Catwalk” – is also set to be shown off at the May 14 event in London. According to reports, Lumia 925 will come with a slimmer, lighter aluminium body. Interestingly, the Lumia 928 and Lumia 925 are both said to have similar internals: a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, a 4.5-inch screen with resolution of 768 x 1280 pixels, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.

We've also been hearing rumours about another Nokia phone called the Lumia EOS. This smartphone supposedly has a 41 megapixel camera, which makes it the Windows Phone version of the Nokia PureView 808.

Whether or not this teaser is for the international version of Nokia Catwalk, remains to be seen. We’ll keep you posted about the new Lumia here at tech2!
