We’ve heard that T-Mobile is scheduled to finally launch the thin and light Nokia Lumia 925 on July 17th and now that seems to be the case. T-Mobile has just sent out press invites, including one for Windows Phone Central, for their “boldest moves yet” campaign, taking place in Manhattan on July 10th--one week prior to the launch.
Since that’s a plural “moves” in there, we imagine that Nokia will be one of a few featured devices and services for the day, meaning some Android phones could be on hand as well.
The Lumia 925, a sister device to the Lumia 920, features an aluminum body, 4.5” AMOLED display, 16 or 32 GB internal storage and a new improved camera featuring a sixth lens for increased sharpness. The device also ships with GDR2 OS update for Windows Phone 8 and Nokia’s Amber firmware. In addition, LTE and Wi-Fi calling (see demonstration) are expected to be on board, making us very excited for this device.
The Lumia 925 is expected to retail for $99 with T-Mobile’s non-contract contract and it looks to be available one week after the announcement. The timing also seems appropriate as just one day later, Nokia will be on hand again in New York City to talk about the presumed EOS device featuring a 41MP camera sensor.
Tune into Windows Phone Central that day as we cover this event live.
