Nokia has unveiled the Lumia 925, the much hyped new Lumia device launched today.

The handset, which Nokia is calling a “new interpretation” of its flagship the Lumia 920, will ship in the United Kingdom in June for around  Ã¢€š¬469 ( £398) before taxes and subsidies, Nokia said today.

The device places great emphasis on Nokia’s improvements in camera technology, with an 8.7MP camera featuring a Carl Zeiss lens and Optical Imaging stabilisation.

Nokia is also introducing Smart Camera mode, which allows various modes to take photos and edit them, including Action Shot, for moving objects which allows you to sort through for the best frame, and Remove Moving Objects, which like Samsung’s Eraser, removes moving objects or people from a photo.

The Lumia 925 features metal in its casing, which also includes the antenna.  The device will be available in white, grey or black, Nokia said, and offered through Vodafone and other retail partners, with Vodafone exclusively offering the 32GB version of the device.

The breakdown

The device will have a 4.5 inch screen with resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels and run with a 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon chipset with 1 GB Ram, which is a respectable but not mind blowing amount of power.

Its camera will be a PureView 8.7MP with Optical Image Stabilization , short pulse high power LED flash and 1080p video at 30fps, with a 1.2MP front facing camera

Internal memory will be 16GB and its battery will be 2000mAh.

The device measures 129 by 70.6 and is a very thin 8.5mm, weighing in at 139g (that’s 2.2mm thinner and 46g lighter than the Lumia 920).
