Nokia has officially announced its new flagship device, the Nokia Lumia 925. This new smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 925 is the successor to the Nokia Lumia 920 and is very similar to the Lumia 920 and Lumia 928 when it comes to specs and performance. The Lumia 925 might not be a powerful upgrade when compared to the Lumia 920, but definitely packs a lot of cool features that is sure to get consumer attention.
So the Nokia Lumia 925 is the new flagship device of the company that runs on Windows Phone 8. Similar to the Lumia 920 and Lumia 928, the Nokia Lumia 925 also has an 8.7MP primary camera with Optical Image Stabilization and f/2.0 aperture. The flash on the Lumia 925 is a regular LED flash, so no Xenon flash included here. The use of a regular LED flash instead of the popular Xenon flash does seem to be an incorrect move, but Nokia might have a reason, and if they do, we hope they clarify very soon.
In spite of being the new flagship device of the company, the Nokia Lumia 925 has a hardware configuration that is very similar to the Lumia 920. The Lumia 925 has a 4.5-inch touchscreen display with a WXGA resolution of 768 x 1280 pixels. This device has an AMOLED display with ClearBlack and Gorilla Glass 2 protection. It has a Qualcomm chipset and is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Krait processor and 1GB of RAM. If you are wondering why Nokia did not opt for a better CPU or higher RAM, then the reason is because the above mentioned hardware configuration is the best that Windows Phone 8 can support as of now.
Coming to the interesting part, the Nokia Lumia 925 has two IHF microphones that record distortion-free sound for 1080p videos even in loud environments. The device also comes preloaded with the Smart Camera app. This app features several modes which includes Burst mode, Best Shot, Action Shot and Motion focus.
The Lumia 925 has a polycarbonate back and an aluminum frame around the side. There is no wireless charging available right out of the box, but you can enable it by using a thin charging cover. The best part is that the device is just 8.8mm thick and weighs about 139 grams only. It has the same 2000 mah battery present on the Nokia Lumia 920. When it comes to internal storage space, the Lumia 925 will offer you options of 16 and 32 GB and of course, and there is no support for MicroSD cards.
The device is expected to be available in Europe and China by this June and will be offered by T-Mobile later in the US.
