The concept Nokia models made by Edgar Mkrtchyan are simply stunning, so it was a joy when he sent us a new model, the Nokia Lumia 940, made entirely of carbon. The device adopts a more rounded approach to the usual Lumia design and runs Windows Phone 8, as the author claims.

The material at the back reminds me of a knitted sweater or of a basket made of small, flexible branches. It may be the same idea of weaving kevlar like on the Motorola Droid RAZR. Anyway, you should know that the Nokia Lumia 940 features a carbon shell with a large curved screen and inside there’s a dual core 1.5 GHz processor, while upfront we’ve got a 4.5 inch PureMotion HD+ 1280 x 768 screen with Gorilla Glass protection.

At the back there’s a 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, dual LED flash and 1080p video capture. Powering up the entire unit is a 3000 mAh battery and as far as connectivity goes, there’s microUSB, NFC, Bluetooth and Nokia 3.5 AV. I find this to be a very interesting handset and among the advantages of carbon I can think of is its low weight and pretty high durability. Fancy the Nokia 940?
