Nokia’s London event today was indeed about the rumoured ‘Catwalk’ handset, the Lumia 925. The company has taken the wraps off their new flagship smartphone, detailing the specs as well as the overseas pricing and release dates.
The Lumia 925 features an aluminium casing and is thinner and lighter than its predecessor, the Lumia 920. The 920 weighs in at 185 grams and is 10.7mm thick, the Lumia 925 shaves its weight and thickness down to 139 grams and 8.5mm respectively.
Internally the two smartphones are much the same. Nokia’s new flagship has a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It will ship with a 4.5-inch OLED display (1,280 x 768) and has an 8.7 megapixel PureView rear camera, which features an additional glass lens, and a 1.2 megapixel rear camera to round the package off. The new lens comes along with a new Nokia Smart Camera mode that allows manipulation of image backgrounds.
The Lumia 925 has been dated for a June release in Europe and will retail for 469 Euros (R5,650).
