Nokia Lumia 'Catwalk' with aluminum body leaks - read the full textWe have heard rumors in the past of Nokia working on a successor to the Lumia 920 with an aluminum body. The Lumia 928, as it turned out, however, did not actually have an aluminum body, at least according to the leaked image. But it seems there is something else that just might. What you...

Aluminum frame with plastics back! Same as Sony xperia SP! Is that the trend now? It's cheaper than making it all aluminum.

Look at the scratched screen! It probably is an old prototype or just fake.

An aluminium frame and a grey plastic backpanel and a bulging camera that makes it impossible to use without a protective case! And to make it even worse, it use WP8 with the gigantic "Tiles" and even bigger fonts (it is a phone that you hold close to your eyes and not an ad poster that you are supposed to be able to see when you pass it on the "Metro"/subway)!
This is really ugly, and actually rather bad design, but I guess Nokia fans still will think it is the most beautiful phone in the world!

At first glance, looks like htc. Htc one x to be exact. Oh well.. It seems that nokia joined the likes of samsung. Less innovation, more copying.
