Following the release of the Asha a couple of days ago, Nokia announces a new flagship phone – the Lumia 925. The phone is every bit of the Lumia 920 but better. It has 4G LTE, an improved aluminum frame and a few software additions.
Starting off with the display, Nokia has abandoned the IPS LCD of the 920 and opted for a ClearBlack AMOLED panel. The size is retained on 4.5-inches, still with a resolution of 768 x 1280.
The back of the phone is the same polycarbonate, but the side frame is made out of aluminum. Nokia has turned the thick and heavy Lumia 920 into a sleek piece of hardware – from 10.7mm to 8.5mm and from 185g to 139g.
The phone will come in monochrome colors, meaning the bright colors that we love on the Lumia phones can only be accessed through a purchase of sleeves. Wireless charging can only be enabled through that too.
Nokia is also trying to catch-up with camera software. While Windows Phone has it’s own plain camera app, Nokia tops all of that with Smart Camera – which will feature Best Shot, Action Shot, Motion Blur Shot & so on.
Nokia Lumia 925 specs:
4.5-inch 1280×768 ClearBlack AMOLED display
1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon Krait CPU
Adreno 225 GPU
8.7MP PureView camera
with 1080p HD video (low-light, image stabilization)
1.3MP front-facing camera, 720p
Windows Phone 8
8.5 mm (thickness)
Pricing is $616 before taxes, which is around Php25-26k. The Nokia Lumia 920 landed months ago for a price of Php27k, so expect the flagship update to take its place, creating a price drop for the 920. Since the new Lumia features LTE, we can hope & expect that the local telcos will offer it.
Apparently, we weren’t able to see the rumored 41MP Nokia “EOS” running Windows Phone, which is quite disappointing. Nevertheless, will it be worth the upgrade? Did the Lumia 925 impress? Leave your comment & your opinion down below.
