Nokia Lumia 925 Launched, Priced at About P25,000

The Nokia Lumia 920 is a fantastic piece of hardware but most users find it thick and heavy.  Nokia just solved that issue with the launch of the new Windows Phone 8 device, the Nokia Lumia 925.

This new Lumia is different from the other phones in Lumia range.  It does not have a full polycarbonate body and instead, it has an aluminum casing. The design is sleek and beautiful, the same way the iPhone and the HTC One are. The phone is not all aluminum though.  Only the outer frame is made of aluminum since the rear is still made of polycarbonate.  The polycarbonate back comes in white, grey or black. If you want something colorful, you can use the wireless charging cover which can be clipped onto the back of the phone.  The covers come in white, black, yellow, and red.

Nokia’s focus is obviously the weight and thickness of the device as the Lumia 925 is much thinner and much lighter than the Lumia 920, even if in most respects, both devices are the same. The Lumia 925 comes in at only 8.5mm thick and weighs only 139 grams. On the other hand, the Lumia 920 is 10.7mm thick and weighs 185 grams.

Apart from changing the design of the Lumia 920, Nokia also introduced improvements to the Lumia 925’s camera.  The phone brings improvements when it comes to taking low light images. It also offers the new Nokia Smart Camera mode which is a way of capturing ten images at once with editing options like Best Shot, Action Shot, and Motion Focus.  It also has Hipstamatic’s new app called Oggl.

The hardware for the Lumia 925 is practically the same as that of the Lumia 920.  The Lumia 925 features a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 8.7-megapixel rear camera, 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera and 2000mAh battery.  The screen is now a 4.5-inch AMOLED WXGA display with 1280×768 resolution and the internal storage is lower at only 16GB.

The Nokia Lumia 925 will first be available in Europe and will thereafter be available in the U.S., China and other markets. The Nokia Lumia 925 will be priced around 469 EUR (about Php25,000) before taxes and subsidies.

    what..?? The engine was shared with the 920..?? Oh c’mmon Finnish phone maker I expecting you to be stand-out for your latest WP8 versions. SGS4 had Quad-Core also with HTC One (If I’m not misaken). I think the upcoming 928 also be powered by Dual-Core I have seen in the other online article

      Sir it seems that you have not used a windows OS nor knew anything about a windows phone. Windows doesnt need quadcore/octacore or what have you cores because it efficient in terms of OS and hardware. A windows phone can even run on single cores and the smoothness of the UI will still be there, why? Because its optimised and doesnt have that much bugs. Try the Nokia Lumia 520 phone, it has 1gz proc and only 512 or ram but still has the same feel as if your using a Lumia 920. The Lumia 520 is only 7k pesos and if you compare it to an Android HS within the same price bracket you will see the diff. Please do try and maybe you’ll like it . . . ciao

      dude, bet you didn’t know that the iPhone 5 also uses dual cores too. besides, this phone isn’t meant to be the next “flagship wp8”, not even a “refresh” (which the samsung gs4 is, might as well call it samsung gs3s), its just a “variant” meant to address several problems, namely the “weight & thickness” problem and the carrier availability problem (920 – AT&T/Telstra/Etc…, 928 – Verizon, 925 – T-Mo/Vodafone/Etc…). Please do your research before posting BS comments. GS4 comes in both Octa&Quad core variants, and still its a lag fest, while iPhones and Windows Phones comes with dual cores only, but performs much more efficient.
