At the heart of the new camera improvements is the next generation of image processing software and the most advanced lens technology to make every shot clear and sharp.
One of the new features is the new Nokia Smart Camera mode that allows you to create the perfect high quality image. Nokia Smart Camera offers an easy way to take ten shots at once and then edit them afterwards with tools and effects like Best Shot, Action Shot and Motion Focus.
As well as updated software, the camera on the Lumia 925 also comes with the most advanced lens technology. Together, the improvements deliver clearer and sharper pictures and video. And allow you to capture the best pictures in the dark. Even better, the imaging software improvements will be made available to existing compatible Windows Phone 8 Lumia smartphones in an update called Nokia Lumia Amber, which will be rolling out this summer.
The Nokia Lumia 925 also boasts a new 4.5-inch AMOLED display which offers superior brightness and sunlight performance making it easy to see the content even on the sunniest summer day. Add-on covers, sold separately, can add wireless charging to the phone and will come in yellow, red, white and black.
And, of course, the Nokia Lumia 925 comes with all the exclusive Nokia services that contribute towards making our phones better than the rest. Notably, you’ll find the HERE suite of location services for always finding your destination, and Nokia Music for free, unlimited streaming of music playlists, even when offline.
