Nokia has announced that it is starting sales of its flagship Lumia 925 smartphone, which was launched recently, running on Windows 8 OS, in Germany followed by other European markets and China. After its rollout in these markets it will start selling in the US and other markets, across the globe.
Nokia has introduced metal design for the first time in Lumia 925 with the polycarbonate back coming in white, grey or black. A wireless charging cover, available separately in white, black, yellow, and red can be clipped onto the back of the phone to take advantage of Nokia’s extensive wireless charging accessories and ecosystem.
Another feature coming to Lumia first with the Nokia Lumia 925 is a beta version of the Nokia Glance Screen introducing the standby screen clock. Now, with a quick look and without pushing any buttons, users can see the time and the battery level indicator on the screen when the phone is not used. A double tap on the standby screen now wakes the phone up, making it easier to unlock.
The Lumia 925 features a 4.5-inch AMOLED ClearBlack display with 768×1280 resolution and Gorilla 2 Glass. It is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage. This phone is packed with a 2,000 mAh battery.
The Lumia 925 has an 8.7-megapixel PureView rear camera and 1.2-megapixel wide-angle front camera. Nokia claims that the camera captures the best low-light images thanks to the most advanced lens technology and next-generation imaging software. It also features the new Nokia Smart Camera, an easy way to capture ten images at once and edit them afterwards with options like Best Shot and Action Shot.
The Lumia 925 offers a variety of exclusive services such as Nokia Music for unlimited streaming of free music playlists. The suite of integrated location and navigation services include HERE Drive+ and HERE Maps. Additionally, HERE Maps with augmented reality view is available in the Store for download.
