Nokia Lumia 925 hits store shelves

The Lumia 925 was unveiled in mid-May and is a model that fits in between the globally available Lumia 920 and US Verizon-exclusive Lumia 928. The latest in the Lumia series of smartphones is equipped with Nokia Glance Screen, which is more or less a reincarnation of the active standby display of Nokia’s Symbian and MeeGo devices. The screen shows a permanent clock when the phone is locked and it can be unlocked with a double-tap on the screen.

The Glance Screen also shows battery gage and a ringer status indicator. For those who often check their smartphones even during night, Nokia has on offer a “night mode” with reduced lighting.

Coming to the camera, Nokia has put in an 8.7-megapixel PureView camera. Even though the sensor and optical image stabilization of the camera is the same as the one on Lumia 920, Nokia has said that the lens has been updated and packs a six-segment assembly which will add to the overall image quality while increasing sharpness and capturing images with more accurate colors.

According to Nokia, all Windows Phone 8 devices will be equipped with the Glance Screen through the Amber update which is due to arrive in summer.
