Nokia Lumia event inked in for mid-May

Nokia is preparing to unveil what looks to be the company's next Lumia smartphone during an event that they will host on May 14 in London. If recent rumors are on track, it could be the EOS that we've been hearing a lot about, which is said to be a Windows Phone device that packs in a PureView 41-megapixel camera.

The invite reads, "The Nokia Lumia story continues," and to the left it reads, "See what's next" in big bold letters that are slightly hidden, almost like a stereogram. We're not sure what that specifically is all about, but we do know from the invite that Nokia will be showing off a new Lumia device at the event.

We've heard that the new smartphone will sport an aluminum outer shell complete with a waterproof nano coating from P2i, similar to that of the technology that we saw at CES back in January from the startup company. The phone is said to be codenamed "Catwalk," although an official moniker for the phones is not yet known, nor are details imminent.

Apparently, the secret phone was at Mobile World Congress back in February, and only a handful of analysts were able to feast their eyes on the new toy, but solid details are yet to be revealed. There's also the chance that they'll release the Lumia 928 on Verizon, which we've been hearing about for some time now.
