Nokia Lumia 925

London, UK – Nokia today announced the availability of the Nokia Lumia 925, a new interpretation of its award-winning flagship, the Nokia Lumia 920. The Nokia Lumia 925 introduces a metal design and showcases the latest PureView camera innovation, new features and third party applications.

With the most advanced lens technology, including 6 physical lenses, and next generation imaging software, the Nokia Lumia 925 captures clearer, sharper pictures and video, as well as the best low-light images. The Nokia Lumia 925 also introduces the new Nokia Smart Camera mode, coming as an update to all Lumia Windows Phone 8 smartphones in the near future. Nokia Smart Camera is the easiest way to take the perfect photo. It captures ten images at once and allows you to quickly edit and share using options like Best Shot, Action Shot, Change Faces, Remove Moving Objects and Motion Focus.

“We are delighted with the channel support for the Lumia 925,” said Conor Pierce, VP Nokia UK & Ireland. “It’s a fantastic device that will be ranged across all of our partners here in the UK.”

The Nokia Lumia 925 introduces metal for the first time to the Nokia Lumia range, bringing appeal and allowing for a significant reduction in both weight and volume. The polycarbonate back comes in white, grey or black. A wireless charging cover can be clipped onto the back of the phone to take advantage of Nokia’s extensive wireless charging accessories and ecosystem. Covers, sold separately, come in white, black, yellow, and red.

“The Nokia Lumia 925 is the best Nokia Windows Phone 8 device yet and will further support the growth of Windows Phone,” said David Johnson, O2’s General Manager Devices. “We think customers will love it, especially our exclusive white version.”

Leading Nokia services, such as the HERE suite of integrated location and satellite navigation applications, Nokia Music for unlimited streaming of free (with no sign up required)  music mixes, and new applications like the forthcoming Hipstamatic all add to make one of the most complete smartphone packages in the market today.

Sales are expected to start in the UK this week. The Lumia 925 will be available from Vodafone in an exclusive black 32GB version, from O2 in a white 16GB version and will become available in 3, EE, Phones4u, Carphone Warehouse and independent retail outlets with shipments later this month.
