It looks a bit like a black and white photo of the 920, beaten with an ugly stick until the blood stopped flowing... :)
Frankly, I think the "this phone looks like the other phone" stuff is overdone. Every touchscreen device will more-or-less resemble every other, due to the basics of design and human physiology. Unfortunately, Apple's patent suit has kicked off all the ridiculous "copycat" claims over really basic and long-established product features and UI.

You just need to look at some of the older Samsung phones, and tablets, to see Samsung have blatantly copied the design, made some small changes, then sold it, knowing there will be people who want an iDevice, can't afford one, so get something that looks almost identical, and is half the price.

The Optimus L3 was announced earlier this year. The 920 is based on the N9, which was announced in June 2011. Why it would remind you of some random LG phone announced half a year after Nokia's reference chassis is beyond me.

If Apple wasn't suing everybody for basic design phones, tablets and whatever they feel that it might like one of their product, then we wouldn't even talk about that, we would live with the "horrible" truth that a company may have manufactured a phone with round corners too.

The Lumia 800, 900 and 920 are all based on the N9 design, though for the purpose of my argument the 800 would have worked too (it was announced in late 2011).
