Nokia annouce Lumia 925 coming in June

Nokia-Lumia-925-frontIt’s no secret that for the last few years Nokia have been falling behind competitors such as Apple, Samsung, and HTC in the smartphone market. While Nokia appear to understand the lower end of the market very well they just can’t seem to get it right with their more high-end handsets. It looked as though things might change when they released the Lumia 800, a very capable smartphone at the time which ran Windows Phone 7, but while the phone was well received it didn’t become the massive seller Nokia were hoping.

They haven’t given up on Windows Phone however and their newly announced Lumia 925 looks like one of their best smartphones yet. Visually the Lumia 925 is much more comparable to high-end handsets such as the iPhone than previous Lumia devices. An aluminium frame gives the phone a much more premium look and feel then previous Lumia handsets and at the same time the Luma 925 is nice and light thanks to the new design. Underneath that aluminium body there is a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of RAM which may sound weak compared to some of the top Android phones but for a Windows Phone device it’s a pretty powerful handset.

The 8.7-megapixel camera should take some decent snaps and they’ll look great on the phone too thanks to the 4.5-inch AMOLED display running at a resolution of 1280 x 768 (slightly above 720p). The screen also has a high-brightness mode to make things a bit clearer outdoors on a sunny day. The camera is one of the real talking points as Nokia have not only a high-quality sensor but their excellent software means you’ll get good quality images with plenty of extra features.

While it won’t be easy to catch up with the iPhone and top Android devices like the HTC One there can be little doubt Nokia know how to construct a great quality phone with some nice features. By sticking with Windows Phone however they may be putting off a lot of potential customers and you have to wonder whether jumping on the Android bandwagon would be a better choice for them. The Nokia Lumia 925 is set to arrive in Europe in June and is a great option for any Windows Phone fans.
