Nokia has just launched its Lumia 925 smartphone at an event in London. In terms of specs however, it seems a lot like the Lumia 920 and the Lumia 928.
One of the biggest changes that Nokia has made to the smartphone is terms of size and design of the body. This is only 8.5mm thick and weighs 139 grams. The Lumia 920 was much heavier and thicker at 185 grams and 10.7mm.
The other big change is the body finish. The smartphone has an aluminum frame, which runs around the outside of the body, and polycarbonate back body.
As far as other features are concerned not much has changed. It has 4.5-inch screen with AMOLED display with 1280768 pixels resolution. It has a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, and 16GB storage space. The Lumia 920 also has a 4.5-inch screen with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor.
The camera lens is 8.7 megapixels and has Image Optical Stabilisation and Carl Ziess optics and flash. The front camera is 1.2 megapixels. It has wireless charging as well.
This is a 4G smartphone, supports Bluetooth 3.0, NFC, USB 2.0 and WiFi.
Nokia also displayed its new Smart Camera mode which comes with a lot more editing options. These include:
Best Shot: Let's users choose the best image from 10 frames.
Action Shot: Users can add multiple frames to an image in order to add a sense of motion to their photo.
Motion focus: Motion blur in the background. The option allows users to change the various degrees of motion blur here from low to high.
Change Faces: Choose difference faces from different frames. Helps users ensure that people looks less weird in pictures.
The remove objects option: Let's you get rid of photo bombers.
Lumia 925 will only be available in grey and black metallic colors. For a colourful body, users will have to purchase an additional sleeve that attaches to the rear of the device (like the Lumia 720). They'll be available in red, yellow, black, and white.
The Nokia Lumia 925 is expected to start selling in June first in UK, Germany, Italy and Spain with Vodafone and other operator and retail partners; and in China with China Mobile and China Unicom, followed by the US with T-Mobile. It will be priced at around 469 EUR before any local taxes or operator subsidies.
No word on India pricing or launch.
