During its event in London today, Nokia officially announced the new Lumia 925, previously known and leaked under the Catwalk project name. Built around a 4.5-inch AMOLED 1280x768 touchscreen, Nokia Lumia 925 is actually the first member of the Lumia family that will feature an aluminum frame, rather than polycarbonate panels.
The new Nokia Lumia 925 is a direct successor of the Lumia 920 and is pretty much a mix between the Verizon Lumia 928 and the Lumia 920. Same as the Lumia 928, the new Lumia 925 also feature an 8.7-megapixel sensor behind it rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization, f/2.0 aperture, LED flash and PureView branding.
The precise dimensions of the Lumia 925 are set at 129x70.6x8.5mm and it weighs 135g, which makes it 50g lighter than Lumia 920. Although it uses an aluminum frame the backplate is still made out of the same polycarbonate seen on other Lumia smartphones but in much more subtle black, white and grey color choices.
Spec wise, the Lumia 925 features a 4.5-inch AMOLED 1280x768 touchscreen with ClearBlack and Gorilla Glass 2. The heart of it is Qualcomm's Snapdragon MSM8950 chipset with dual-core Krait CPU part clocked at 1.5GHz and Adreno 225 graphics, paired up with 1GB of RAM. It comes wtih 16GB of internal storage, has no microSD card slot and also features 1.2-megapixel wide angle front camera. The 2000mAh battery is unfortunately non-removable but features wireless charging via thin charging cover. As all Lumia smartphones, the new Lumia 925 also runs on Microsoft Windows Phone 8 OS.
In order to make it special, Nokia also pre-loaded the Lumia 925 with the new Smart Camera app athat offers burst mode, best shot, action shot and motion focus modes as well as some other neat features.
According to info, the new Nokia Lumia 925 should be available in Europe as of June for €470, while T-Mobile US should get it at a later date.
