Nokia just announced its third phone in five days, its new WP8 flagship called Nokia Lumia 925.
The phone packs two IHF microphones that record distortion-free sound for the 1080p videos even in loud environments.
Nokia preloaded the Lumia 925 with the Smart Camera app – it features several modes including burst mode (10 shots at 5MP), Best Shot (picks the best of the burst), Action Shot (Sequence shot on the HTC One, Drama shot on the Galaxy S4) and Motion focus (adds motion blur to static objects, as if you’re tracking the moving object with the camera). You can also remove moving objects and pick the best face for each person.
The screen is 4.5″ in diagonal and has WXGA resolution – that’s 768 x 1280. More importantly it’s an AMOLED with ClearBlack and Gorilla Glass 2, instead of an LCD. Unsurprisingly, the Qualcomm chipset of the Lumia 925 packs a dual-core Krait processor at 1.5GHz with 1GB of RAM, which is the best that WP8 currently supports.
The phone has an aluminum frame around the side, while the back is polycarbonate. The body is just 8.8mm thick and weighs 135g – much more acceptable than the Lumia 920. Inside it is a 2,000mAh battery, same as the Lumia 920 and Lumia 928. The battery is non-removable and there’s no wireless charging out of the box – you can enable that with a thin charging cover.
The built-in storage is 16GB (a downgrade from the 920 and 928) and there’s no microSD card slot to expand it.
The Nokia Lumia 925 will be available in Europe (Vodafone Germany, UK, Italy and Spain) and China (China Mobile and China Unicom) this June for €470 ($610) and will come to the US later on T-Mobile.
