Nokia teases “Catwalk” on UK TV. Matches well with leaked prototype. Is “variable aperture” lens onboard?


Nokia has started teasing upcoming “Catwalk” which is supposed to be announced  tomorrow in London. The 20 second teaser reveals camera hump with big lens similar to seen on the prototype leaked earlier in China. This hump is not because of big sensor but because the device is supposedly thinner in range of 8 mm and may be because of larger lens and camera module. Anyways if you remember the camera module on Lumia 920 was one of the reason for its 10.7 mm thickness so for reducing thickness by 2 mm may cause the lens to protrude.


Either way, Catwalk will have OIS and pureview branding but will miss Xenon Flash in favour of dual LED flash as seen on the prototype and in the teaser video. That’ what makes us think how will Nokia differentiate the camera on Catwalk from that on Lumia 920. So, is variable aperture lens onboard. The big lens seen on the prototype and in teaser may be due to the wider adjustable aperture!!

  • Really, im expecting this to come to Telus. We didn’t get the 920, nor any other high end… So here is to the 925!

  • I’m on T-MO I’m giving up on them, and Nokia T-MO will never get a decent high end Nokia device. I’m stuck on T-MO with my home account and company account. the company L710 are getting old of the 16 that we have everyone wants larger devices with more than just the 8mb. we have been looking at HTC One. for company use, if it does come to T-MO before the 15th of June then we will get it.

    • Catwalk will come to T-MO for sure. So, may be a little patience can help.

    “Variable aperture” – that’s what I was thinking!!

  • Anssi

    Why should they have just one flagship with all the possible features stuffed in there? Why not have several differentiated flagships for example for imaging (EOS), for style-oriented (Catwalk) and for music lovers etc. Well it is kind of nice though that everyone has the same 5 or S4, no need to be different when you can be ordinary.

    • Hey, point well taken. But even if it is style-oriented, people will expect more from Nokia in imaging. Though, Nokia had themselves made it clear that they will have differentiated flagships!!

  • Kind of self defeating to announce a new flagship product just as the 928 is about to be released.
    Strange marketing indeed.

    • Isn’t Lumia 928 only meant for Verizon. So, what about rest of the world and T-Mobile?
