    Lumia 920 successor to be thinner, lighter and packed with juice
    On February 3, 2013, in iPad, iPhone, Lumia 1000, Lumia 920, Lumia 920 successor features, Lumia 920 successor price, News, Smart Phones, by John
    Nokia is reportedly preparing a new Lumia model, which we believe will be the Lumia 920 successor. The Verge reports that sources familiar with Nokiaís plans told the news agency about this new Lumia device.

    Codenamed the Nokia Catwalk, the Lumia 920 successor will be sporting a much lighter, thinner design and other sources have been saying performance and battery life will be significantly upgraded to match Android models.


    Lumia 920 successor design
    The Lumia 920 has a polycarbonate body and one of the major woes by reviewers and users alike was that the smartphone could not compete against the iPhone 5, in terms of weight and size.

    Now that Nokia are testing aluminium on the body, instead of polycarbonate, the Lumia 920 successor may be as thin or thinner than the iPhone 5 and hopefully, if Nokia can manufacture the device with Appleís precision and have all parts smaller, the Lumia 920 successor could be lighter too.

    The Lumia 920 successor will also sport a faster processor and better GPU for graphics quality, alongside a much larger battery that will run the full day without charge. With the new Qualcomm and Nvidia chips released, Nokia may look to add one of those to the Windows 8 phone.

    Previous Symbian 3 devices had aluminium designs and Nokia know how to make their phones light and thin. The problem is really getting this to the stage the iPhone 5 is at right now.

    We are unsure if the phone will keep its vibrant colour range, they did with the previous aluminium phones so we donít see why they canít now. If the colour scheme goes to black and silver, the phone may lose some of its appeal.

    In terms of price, nothing is certain, but given the success of the Lumia 920, we may see Nokia look to hit the same sweet spot with the successor.

    so what if its up to the specs of an iPhone 5..

    it will still have all of its current problems

    and does it really have to function without a Windowed Mode & Stylus

    why not give the option to do either..

    I think a pencil-sized telescoping stylus that snaps onto the side of the phone, into concave circular areas exposed on either side of the phone, for either left or right-handed users to select which side to put it in... which has a small flat-rounded tip that works like a finger does... with the other end that functions as a laser pointer/ remote PPT controller when aimed at the Phone.... and a Windows Mobile 8 which ALSO works like the Full Win8 OS in Windowed mode, without need for any swiping.... would be ideal

    It needs a setting to Run in Flashy Swiper-man Power-Ranger mode (sexy-flashy-swipes-upon-swipes), or Normal Down-to-Earth-Business Man mode (windowed w/ stylus)..

    There hasn't been a single announcement to base what you just said on! Also seeing as it will be the 920's "successor" I really doubt it will have the same problems as the current unit...

    The real question is will Verizon get this first, or just an improved polycarb version of AT&T's 920.

    Hopefully the former, as there has been no leaks of anything like the latter. Then again, the leaks about "catwalk" don't make it sound like the phone is close to being released. We'll see.

    To me it sounds like "catwalk" will be the one announced in MWC and Lumia 920 successor will be announced couple of months after.
