Nokia introduced Tuesday the Nokia Lumia 925, a new model in its Nokia Lumia 920 range. The Nokia Lumia 925 introduces a metal design and showcases the latest PureView camera feature and third party applications.
According to Nokia, it includes an advanced lens technology and next-generation imaging software to capture clearer, sharper pictures and video, including the 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.
Nokia Smart Camera offers an option to capture ten images at once and edit the pictures with options like Best Shot, Action Shot, and Motion Focus.
Comments from RMN Digital: Today, mobiles lack any brand differentiation. Mobile makers have failed to realize that mobiles have already become tasteless commodities with the same set of features on all the products from different vendors. Consumers have stopped looking for brands. They buy mobiles as they buy potatoes.
Nokia also announced Hipstamatic’s new app, Oggl, will arrive on Nokia Lumia smartphones, allowing people to take and share pictures with like-minded creatives and photography enthusiasts from around the world.
In addition to sharing photos on Oggl, users can simultaneously share photos on social networks including Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Tumblr, Flickr and Instagram.
“We keep innovating,” said Jo Harlow, executive vice president of Nokia Smart Devices. “We’re advancing experiences on the Nokia Lumia portfolio whether that means great new benefits for an existing Lumia owner, or bringing new showcase devices like the Nokia Lumia 925.”
In addition to Europe, the Nokia Lumia 925 will be introduced into the US by T-Mobile and into China by China Mobile and China Unicom. Sales are expected to start in the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain and China in June, followed by the US and a number of other markets.
The Nokia Lumia 925 will be priced around 469 EUR before taxes and subsidies. Country-specific pricing and availability will be announced locally, says the company.
