The Nokia Lumia 925 and Lumia 625 smartphones have finally launched in India at Rs 33,499 and Rs 19,999, respectively. The Lumia 925 has been doing the rounds on online shopping sites for a while and now that both phones have launched in an official capacity, expect the Lumia 625 to show up as well. The Lumia 925 is an upgrade to the Lumia 920 as it brings with it a slimmer and lighter chassis. However, Nokia has chopped the internal storage down to half (16GB) while raising the price so you might want to keep that in mind before deciding. The Lumia 625 takes the place of the Lumia 720 in terms of pricing.
