For the second time in the span of a week, Nokia has introduced a new entry in its Lumia 920 series Windows Phone flagships. Today it revealed the Lumia 925, which sports many of the same specs as the recently-revealed Lumia 928 but refreshes the typical Lumia design with a thinner and lighter aluminum body.
Internally, the Windows Phone 8 device features the same dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 4.5-inch, 1280 x 768 OLED display as the Lumia 928. Its 16 GB of internal storage is a downgrade from the usual 32 GB, but the battery remains the same at 2000 mAh.
It has a similar 8.7-megapixel shooter too, though it won’t come with the xenon flash found on the Lumia 928. Instead, the Lumia 925 focuses on its PureView camera’s software with features like Smart Camera for taking pictures in burst mode, Best Shot for finding the, well, best shot of those images, Action Shot for combining images together, and others.
But the Lumia 925’s most notable upgrade may be its redesigned profile. Dropping the usual polycarbonate body for a metal one seems to have allowed the phone to be both slimmer and lighter, as it now weighs in at 139 grams and measures at 8.5mm. That’s certainly an improvement the 163 gram weight and 9.48mm profile of the Lumia 928.
The Lumia 925 will go on sale in select European and Asian markets in June for around €469 ($610). T-Mobile has confirmed it’ll sell the device in the U.S. after that, but specific pricing and availability details haven’t been announced just yet. TG will be sure to update once they are.
