Nokia's next flagship phone will reportedly be made of aluminum and be much lighter than its predecessor, the Lumia 920.
The Verge website reported Thursday that the Finnish phone company is set to dump polycarbonate as the body material for its upcoming top-of-the-line device. It cited unnamed sources "familiar with Nokia's plans."
By using aluminum instead, which is the material used for the Apple iPhone 5's body, Nokia might be able to achieve a lighter and thinner build.
The Lumia 920, Nokia's current flagship device, has received positive reviews in general, but its weight and thickness have put off many critics.
