The Lumia 925 will hit T-Mobile in the US and Vodafone in the UK
Nokia has officially introduced its new Lumia 925 smartphone running Windows 8. Nokia boasts about its PureView camera promising "the best" low light images and a new aluminum body.
The smartphone features the new Nokia Smart Camera mode that will be coming is an update to all Lumia Windows Phone 8 smartphones. Smart Camera offers users an easier way to capture 10 images at one time and the ability to edit the pictures with options like Best Shot, Action Shot, and Motion Focus. The camera also allows users to share photographs on various social networks all at the same time.
"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."
Due to its metal frame, the Lumia 925 doesn’t support native wireless charging. Instead, Nokia is offering a wireless charging cover that can be clipped onto the back of the device allowing it to be used with the Nokia range of wireless charging accessories.
The phone uses a 4.5-inch AMOLED WXGA resolution display; Nokia promises that the display is easily read in sunlight and the screen can be used while wearing gloves or with fingernails. Most of the other specs of the device are rather mundane, including a 2000 mAh battery and a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor. The rear camera has 8.7-megapixel resolution and features optical image stabilization. Other hardware features include a 1.2MP front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage.
The first network to get the device in the United States will be T-Mobile.

If phones increase significantly in durability over what we've got currently, I'd agree with you. As it is, me and just about everyone I know puts their phone in a big ugly plastic case ASAP. This obviously negates any benefit I see coming from "premium feeling" materials.

Well, the masses have spoken and I'm obviously in the super minority.
I agree Nokia plastic is a far cry from Samsung plastic and plastic has it's benefits. Never having owned a phone with wireless charging, I guess I dont see the benefit.
I just think in the world of top of the line phones with retail prices north of $600, premium materials are one way to differentiate yourself from the hoards.
