Lumia 925 sold along with Lumia 920
The Lumia 925 is the aluminum bodied version of the Lumia 920, and it is the black version that will be offered on the AT&T network. In addition to an aluminum body, the 925 features a polycarbonate back and a 4.5-inch AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 2. It also has a 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU and an 8.7 megapixel rear camera.
It is virtually the same handset as the 920, although it does not have Qi wireless charging. There are both 16 GB and 32 GB versions of the 925, and Windows Phone Central reports that one source has indicated that it will be the 16 GB version offered on the AT&T network.
Both the 925 and the 920 will be offered on the network, but the price for the 920 will fall to $49 with a contract, according to the site. That price cut will happen around the same time the 925 is released on the network, or possible slightly before.
AT&T will have four phones from Nokia
Windows Phone Central points out that this is an important milestone for AT&T and Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) because it means the carrier will offer four of the Finnish company’s devices. In addition to the 920 and the 925, AT&T already offers the low-end 520 and set and the 1020, which sports Nokia’s top-of-the-line smartphone camera.
Nokia and AT&T have been slowly phasing out the Lumia 820 because of low sales of the handset on the network. However, it does show AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T)’s support for Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) because it makes the carrier the top one for Windows Phones and highlights its confidence in the Windows Phone mobile platform.
