Nokia Lumia 925 arrives with PureView camera technology

Nokia has unveiled its latest flagship Window Phone handset - the Lumia 925, which packs the firm's PureView camera technology.

Key features of the Lumia 925 include a 4.5in Amoled (1280 x 768) display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and 16GB of internal memory. The 8.7-megapixel Pureview camera will feature optical image stabilization, autofocus, and a high power LED flash.

Nokia has introduced an app called Oggl, which allows users to share their photos on social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and Instagram, and is incased within a metal frame for greater durability.

Vodafone and Three have confirmed they will be stocking the device in the UK.

"We look forward to offering the Nokia Lumia 925 across our markets on Vodafone Red, as well as other tariffs, enabling customers to make the most of their new smartphone on [our] fast and reliable network." said Patrick Chomet, group director of terminals at Vodafone.

"[Vodafone] customers will also have exclusive access to a 32GB version of the Nokia Lumia 925, giving them even more capacity to store all their content for personal and business use."

The Lumia is expected to be released across the UK in June of this year, but pricing is yet to be confirmed.

The arrival of the latest Lumia comes as Apple and Samsung continue to dominate the smartphone market with the iPhone and Galaxy S ranges, respectively. Nokia has found it tough going in the market it used to lead, with the firm shipping just five million Lumia's a quarter. This is significantly short of the iPhone and Galaxy sales, which are able to ship millions of handsets in the opening days on sale.

If the Lumia 925 isn't able to boost Nokia's sales significantly, it could leave Stephen Elop in an untenable position. Investors at the Finnish firm have already expressed disapproval towards the CEO, claiming that although he is a "nice guy", the leadership team is not doing enough.
