Nokia announced it’s penultimate Flagship, the Nokia Lumia 925, sometime in May, and gave us much reason to be excited. And now it’s here, up for grabs in India, spotted at the Nokia India store, and on Flipkart. First, we’ll take a look at the specifications, and what we know about the phone, and then the India release.
The Lumia 925 has a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED PureMotionHD+ and ClearBlack display with 1280×768 px resolution. This screen, much like the other flagship Lumia-s, is designed by Nokia, with faster reaction time, and smooth transitions. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, clocked in at 1.5 GHz, with 1 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal memory.
The Lumia 925, like the Lumia 1020, was designed to be a camera phone. While it may not have the 41 MP on the 1020, the Lumia 925 comes very close, has all the same applications, burst shots and detection algorithms as it’s successor. The Lumia 925 holds an 8.7 MP rear camera on a 6-lens system with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), as seen in the Lumia 1020, with auto-focus, dual-LED and capable of 1080p recording. It also has a 1.2 MP front camera for all your video-calling needs.
The Lumia, courtesy of the Amber update, will also receive Nokia ProCamera, the camera app on the Nokia 1020, which allows easy-access and customization of camera settings. The App, combined with the great camera on the 925, makes it quite good at low-light shots, and is comes close to the Lumia 1020 in terms of novice shots.
The Lumia 925, much like all it’s predecessors, will have a metal frame, giving a solid feel to the phone. It weighs in at a very-light 139grams. It holds a 2000 mAh battery, and allegedly gives over 10 hours of talk-time. It also comes with the wireless charging with the appropriate cover. The phone is 3G HSPA+, WiFi, and Bluetooth 3.1, and NFC compatible.
The Nokia 925 comes out of the box with Windows 8, and is can be upgraded via the Amber update, offering cool add-ons like Nokia ProCam, flip to silence, standby screen customization, and so on.
Ready to Roll
The Nokia 925 was spotted, and is up-for-grabs on the Nokia India store for INR 34,169. It was also seen on India’s leading online retailer, Flipkart’s website for INR 33,999. The phone comes in Black, Grey and White.
The Nokia 925 looks to be a very promising phone, with good specs and great advances in camera. Windows 8 as a platform is also catching up, with more applications hitting the market. Combined that with the fact that Nokia is proving to be a brilliant OEM, makes the entire Lumia series something to watch out for.
